Function to strip out characters that break JSON

Anyone have regex or a function for stripping out characters from API calls that cause json to break?

I’m looking for a easy way to escape characters on all API text fields we post to other tools

Maybe bubble could add as a :: formatting option?


Folks with same request…

In the past when I’ve had this problem, I’ve used 2 Find and Replace commands in succession of one another, like so…

The first one looks for a backslash, the second one looks for double quotes.
Each of those are escaped by adding a backslash before it.

That’s done the trick for me and I’ve not needed anything else. You could try it and see if it helps.


Yes, this is also what we’re doing to 50-100 fields in our app where we’re posting data to external endpoints. /n is another to escape which in Find/Replace is an actual “return”. Hardcoding /n doesn’t work.

@kramwe - I know it’s a year after you made this post but was wondering how you searched and replaced for the line breaks to make sure they didn’t get into the JSON file. I tried searching for ‘/n’ and replacing with ‘/n’ but that didn’t seem to work.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

just press return in top “find” box. will look like nothing.
