maybe this grep can help you
leave empty (or insert depending what you want to obtain)
Change the $ in your first attempt to \r
This grep finds all "." without any space following except the one at the end of paragraph
thank you both very much for your pompt help!
At first glance
works like a charm. I have to test it in some scenarios but at the moment I am very happy with it.
The problem I am having with
is, that this version does not exclude the last full stop in a story, because there is no carriage return:
My description was not that accurate in that context. Sorry.
So I will do some testing with premio_oscar's version and will give feedback later.
@ premio_oscar: Many thanks for that refined version! I will keep on testing with it ...
premio_oscar's version is exactly what I was searching for. Maybe \.(?=.)(?!\s) is an alternative to find full stops also at beginning of a paragraph.
Thanks again to you both for your help and effort! Much appreciated.
Have a nice day!
Dear Obi-wan Kenobi,
your version also works like a charm. Many thanks!
