Find Replace in Script Editor with cr

This is a list of people reading and answering questions about LiveCode
programming.  You might think my explanation of your typo was  not
what you were looking for especially since I mentioned C and C++ in
the reply. But  I personally answered the way I did for many reasons
and even told you to ignore it if that was not what you wanted.  Some
of the reasons I answered the way I did was that instead of pointing
out it was a typo I  provided other users reading the message with
info about why it was a typo. I have made the typo many times and
I was not sure if you were misled by an error in the dictionary or  if
it was a typo and I helped people learn the basics of why it was not
going to work and that behavior of using backslash n  goes back to
C++ which LiveCode is written in and C++ got the behavior from C.

Another point is people were complaining LiveCode needs to be up
on the list of programming languages and it was noted that the list
is based on messages related to the language. Providing links with
C and C++  and info helps people understand LiveCode better and
any other language they learn in the future.

So your question has value to many users and to LoveCode on a lot
of different levels,  not just what you want to hear or learn or even be
reminded of.

In other words your complaints are invalid and a waste of your time
with attempts to prevent others from learning.
