Dreamweaver CS6 Regular Expressions versus BBEdit's GREP

Feb 15, 2013 11:31 AM


Try this test and tell me why BBEdit's GREP feature works without any problem and can't do the same task on Dreamweaver CS6's Regular Expressions. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

After loading a long text to create HTML page, I need to add a simple <br> tag at the end of each line of the code.

Details of the Test:

This is BBEdit's Pattern used on Find Window that works PERFECT:

Find: $

Replace: <br>


Why can't do this simple task on Dreamweaver CS6 on Mac OS X with Regular Expressions on the code? Don't works and ignore the pattern. I try another patterns that are similar and don't works also.


And DW Find's window dissapears after pressing the replace all button, that's annoying.

    Search "\n" and replace with "<br />"
