RegEx for hard return

Hi Fm Friends:

 

I am looking for a space followed by (Former and want to add a hard return in front of the space. (Or after, don't really care.) My cursor stops in front of the space but \r gives me a line break and not a paragraph break. It works correctly in InDesign but not in FrameMaker. What am I missing?

In another post I had asked for the code for non-breaking spaces. There Rick said that I had to use the Windows character code.

This means for you:

\x09

I generally have luck with regex boards on reddit, etc.

Have you tried any of those?

Thank you, @Winfried Reng@Bob_Niland and @Matt S - Tech Comm Tools. I am writing this down in a safe place because I'm now thinking I asked a similar question (if not the exact same question) last year. 🙄

 

EDIT: I needed a tab last year. \x08, FWIW.

Ok, so \x0a is the final answer for a ¶ (\x09 is a line break, same as \r)

 

And now I see them all listed in the character set list. Again, thank you all!
