Soft returns in "Find and Replace" window


I can type soft returns in CT's editor pane, but I can't in the "Find and Replace" window...

 For some reason CT inserts hard returns instead of soft ones when it gives a perfect match. I have hundreds of soft returns in my source segments and I need to replace them one by one manually each and every time in the target perfect matches... (my files are Excel files converted to sdlxliff by the client). In Studio the leading and trailing returns are excluded from the Editor's segments, but for some reason they are not in CT. :-(

So... any suggestion to quickly replace all the hard returns to soft ones in CT?

Thanks, Igor.


> Igor, does that mean that the Excel file soft returns will be replaced with hard returns? If so, the resulting Excel file will have more cells than the original one. Or am I missing something?

I haven't seen sdlxfiff files with soft returns yet so probably they are hidden behind tags.


Got it.

By the way, CT opens the files correctly when I glue them, but if I try to open individually one the files that gave an error message in Studio (out of memory), CT stays blank (doesn't open the file). I also think that the content of those big files (around 70 Mb) is not loaded in the glued files (CT seems to ignore them). My guess is that the original Excel files contain lots of illustrations.
