Is it possible to replace an Enter with a Shift-Enter?

The reason I am doing this is because when I copy and pasted something that i wrote (a poem) into Gmail every enter becomes double-spaced and then i have to go in and correct every single line.

So if i can find and replace all of the enters with a shift-enter, all at once, this would make my life easier.

I saw some other posts that seemed to correspond with this, but not completely. They said in the "find" box to put a "$" for an "enter". I tried that and got no results.

Try installing AltSearch and replacing \p with \n.
