I’m not good at English. so translated from Chinese by google:

Steps to reproduce

在文本中输入´符号(Unicode Number:U+00B4),使用替换(或查找)功能,替换文本内所有空格

Enter the ´ symbol (Unicode Number: U+00B4) in the text, and use the replace (or find) function to replace all spaces in the text

Expected result


replace/find whitespace only

Actual result


The ´ symbol in the text is replaced/found together with the space
