 I'd like to say I like rxfind a lot and think it's a great app but I am having some difficulty with multiline regex usage. I am trying to search and match a multiline condition, but for some reason regex does not seem to recognize \n for newlines. I have tried to use this to search for text across 4 independant lines and then replace that code with only 2 lines of code by removing the other using a search and replace. When I put the \n attribute in rxfind with the /r: command in the output I get \n added onto the text and of course it all appears on 1 line. Is there any way to get rxfind to search and replace multiline expressions? I also tried using \r and using ACSII values and anything else I could think of, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I know you've probably got this figure out already, but \r\n should work.
