I have hundred of numbers like that in a file:
I need to replace the comma with a non breaking space. Can CT do it automatically? Or maybe with some clever search-replace?
Regex. But I need more information: Always one number like above in a row, and none in a row with text? In that case, filter on Rows with no letters, replace comma with non-breaking space, move all tags to end. In other cases, it'll get a bit more complicated.
It shouldn't (I think), but if it does, you may want to try to replace <x1/>,<x2/> with <x1/>
If you wish to perform Find & Replace on the filtered results only, please select Multiple filter box in the Find & Replace dialog.
Target segments like 5,16 must stay as they are!

So what´s is the actual numerical pattern for those segments to be replaced?

Do you see any other alternative than regular expressions to make complex/advanced text searches? It looks like all the word processors and editors include the reg. ex. search option.

No, I don't, which is why I mentioned regexes in my first reply. It's just that I'm convinced they're not for everybody, especially not for linguists who aren't mathematically inclined. Almost all of us.

You miss the point. You cannot automate anything unless you know beforehand that...
