... if every line of the text ends with a space (or a tab), I want to remove these spaces(tabs).
Another example would be to replace a space to end_of_line in selected portion of the text. If I replace a space with a end_of_line, I get end_of_paragraph in the result.
I am wondering if it is a bug or a feature. I could not find the answer anywhere.

That inserts a U+000a, or ascii linefeed character, which Writer uses as a line break in the text. It may work in Windows using the Alt+010 on the number pad.
Is "Ctrl+Shift+u, a, Space" a unicode input method universal to all breeds of Linux?
