Not sure what this is called. When I copy/paste this into the Find/Change box, it looks at it as a ^p, but that is the code for a normal end paragraph. What is the code for the break that happens when you hit Enter on the number pad which continues the text to the next linked text box?
I think you are asking for column break character? That's what the numeric keypad enter adds to the text. Use ^M for a text find/change.
Thats not the same one, here is an image of the symbol. The ^n moved the line to the next line. The one that the Enter key on the num pad does move to the next linked text box.
^M. I wrote it incorrectly and edited it immediately, but you must have been looking at it for the 30 seconds in between! Sorry!
^m didnt do it either. It did this...
I need this which is created by the enter key on the num pad...
Copy link to clipboard
^m didnt do it either.
It's an uppercase M.
That did it, thanks! Didnt realize codes were case sensative!
By the way, @VicoDrive, you can find these characters on your own using the @ widget in the Find/Change dialog box. You just have to know what they are called. In your case, it's a column break.
I knew about that and looked through the whole thing, couldnt find which one it was. Didnt know what that specific function was even called to be able to find it.
I sometimes need to enter some of these from my plugin code. Do you have a list of the character values for each of these ? For example, indent here is #7, right-align tab is #8, normal tab is #9, soft return is #10, hard return is #13, etc...
Very best regards,
I don't have these character values. I'd suggest asking this in a new post, and be sure to include the scripting tag to get the attention of the scripters who should be able to help.
Thank you very much.
