replacerx and carriage returns
#1
i have a dialog that where im grabbing the clipboard and applying a regex that is built in the dialog. however, sometimes i want to replace some string with a carriage return ([13]) but it actually replaces it with "[13]" rather than the cr. however, it works in a test macro just fine.

can you tell me why it's not working in the dialog?


thanks so much.

Escape sequences can be used only in code, not in text that macro gets from somewhere else. Unless you use str.escape.

Macro
Code:
Copy      Help
str s
inp- s "Type text with QM escape sequences"
out "------"
out s
out "------"
s.escape(0)
out s

man, that rabbit hole really goes deep!.....
