Comment 1 bkleine 2011-10-01 11:07:05 UTC

I have some protein sequence date where I want to add ";" to be able to make tables. using reg expressions in search/replace and choosing "." in search and "$0;" in replace works as long as I donot select the data before doing search and replace.

When I have the data selected, doing the same search/replace action first of all the entire first line is replace and not the first letter, and after that the programm has crashed.

Steps to repeat:



Search (with reg.expr selected) "."
replace $0;

Then select the text and repeat the search replace.

bug #56449 and #50510 are in the same drawer
Comment 3 2012-02-01 11:33:42 UTC
Not reproducible with the new ICU based regexp engine available in recent Apache OpenOffice builds available at

While looking into this bug #118862 has been found (for single replacement).
