Follow-up Comment #4, bug #57633 (project octave):

"bell" is \a, but \0 does not work (at least the octave editor shows the same
behavior as geany). How do you enter \0 in notepad++?

I agree that not being able to find and replace \n and/or \r is really not
helpful. Since the alternative would be to code the complete find procedure by
ourselves, we have to live with this for now. I suggest to change the report's
summary into "Allow search/replace \n in GUI editor" and lower the severity to
"1 - wish".
