    @Ivan Brezhnev

    Based on my research, you could use Find and Replace feature as following. Beacues I am not famliar with Russian, I would take English as an example.

    1 For the scenario that the number is the first.

    • Press Ctrl + A to select the whole content.
    • Press Ctrl + H to open Find and Replace.
    • Go to Find tab > Enter ([0-9]) ([A-z]) in Find what box, ticke the box of "Use wildcards" > Click Read Highlight, choose "Hightlight All". Then please check whether the highlighted characters are what you need to look for.

    • Then go to Replace tab, enter \1^s\2 in Replace with box > Replace All.
      (Please note, "^s" means the Nonbreaking Space, you could get it via clicking Special button to get it. 132875-image.png)

    2 For the scenario that the letter comes first regardless of case, please find ([A-z]) ([0-9]) to replace.

    Any issues, you could post back.
