    Why if I have the escape sequence set to on in the replace dialog I get text

    test.test.test.com

    replaced with

    testest1

    when my search text is test.test.test.com and the replacement is testest1 ?

    According to the help card only the following are treated as escape sequences:

    a Warning (Bell)
    b Backspace
    f Form feed
    n New line
    t Horizontal tab
    v Vertical tab
    Backslash
    oooooo Unicode character in octal notation
    xhhhh Unicode character in hexadecimal notation

    Hi ArthurZ,

    I am sorry I didn’t understand your question.
    Can you please try to rewrite with a simple sample, or you can email me at tech@emurasoft.com with samples.

    Thanks!

    1) Copy-paste the text:
    test.test.test.com
    into a new text file.
    2) Have the search-replace dialog set to use the option “Use Escape Sequence” on.
    3) Attempt to replace the text with: testest1

    Expected result: testest1

    The actual result: testest1

    I see. So it doesn’t have to be “test.test.test.com”, right?

    e is not defined, so undefined escape sequences should not be used. Please use “e” instead.

    Thanks!
