I just imported a CSV file into Scribus. Now I'm trying to format the data. 
How does one do a search and replace on a paragraph (carraige return)? What 
character do I use to represent the CR? I guess I really should import the 
CSV into Open Office first and format it in there.

Currently, I'm printing my database output to a generic text printer, then 
using a macro that I created to clean and format the text. It's not 100% but 
good enough.

Keep up the good work.
