I understand why this will not work directly from the Find/Replace in the SE. That function does not know how to repace a semiColon with an actual return char.
But a button somewhere, or a plug-in if that is more convenient, with a very simple handler can. (Pseudo)
get the script of the objectOfInterest
replace “;” with return in it
set the script of the objectOfInterest to it
