is there a way to search and replace tabs and paragraph returns in Open Office?

I know that in WORD, you enter the characters "^t" (for tab) and "^p" (for paragraph returns) -

is there any equivalent way to do this in O O?

Thanks

Will

In OpenOffice you can search for \t for tabs (with regular expressions checked).

To search for paragraph returns you need to install the AltSearch extension (keep reloading the page if necessary) and search for \p (with regular expressions checked).

Or try $ for paragraph breaks. Again Regular Expressions must be checked. You can find nothing after a paragraph break so $$ will not work.
