I would like to add a new line return after each of the following syntax combinations:
. (period followed by single or double space) ." (period and single quote) ?" (question mark and quote) !" (exclamation point and quote) --" (double dashes and quote)
Exceptions: I don't want to add a line return after the words Mrs. Mr.
Ms. or ellipsis marks ... (three periods in a row)
I have tried modifying number 93 and 581 but without success. Once I have the syntax for above then I can add other.
