How to search for carriage return


#1

Hello,
I’m having a minor issue with our contributors entering spatial coverage metadata follewed by return. This happens when copying and pasting from a Word document used as worksheet. Having a return character at the end of the string gives problems with the “Search By Metadata” plugin. For instance, England–London and England–London followed a return carriage are considered two different places.

It’s easy to spot the offending items as they are nicely flagged up in “Simple vocab”, but I can’t figure which items needs editing ang going through the whole lot is labour intensive and time consuming. Resorting to codes (alt + 0010 / alt + 0013 / &#10 / &#13) doesn’t seem to work. Any suggestion would be massively appreciated. Thanks
