[Bug 465309]


Maybe Component should be changed to Spreadsheet, because the problem is
more simply visible when editing Basic macro code.  It is common to want
to insert spaces at the start of every line in a range (e.g. to "indent"
the code one level), and replacing ^ with spaces does not work.

  3) What is expected to happen in Writer, Calc, or the Macro Editor is when one opens the Find & Replace window, with Regular Expression checkbox checked, in the Search for drop down put a circumflex in, and the beginning of every paragraph is found. Consulting the LO Wiki and built-in LO help, it is implied that using a circumflex by itself in the find field should match the beginning of a paragraph:

  4) What happens instead is nothing is found.

  WORKAROUND: Notepad++ 6.1.2:

  via WINE.
