What if I just press ctrl+f on the pdf and use the find bar. Would that work

You use the replace function and replace "^p" with a single space.

Probably not. Notepad++ and other text editors look for the new line character “\n”, whereas most pdf search tools will look for the literal characters \ and n

Just a minor correction, the almost universal escape character is a backslash. i.e. it's "\n" rather than "/n."

Windows does some funny stuff in cmd and powershell, being caret (^) and backtick (`). Afaik "/" isn't used anywhere, though.

Gah, you’re right! I blame it on me being on mobile so the key locations are different, and me being sleep deprived. Surely it’s not because I’m a bad programmer…
