Hi Alex,

As your patterns spans more than one row, you must specify a global

pattern for the whole array, Therefore, if you have more than one block

of "1" you must use ReplaceRepeated. E.g. asssuming your array is in a:

a//.{x1:{__}..,{y1:___,1,1,y2___},{z1:___,1,1,z2___},x2:{__}..}->{x1,{y1,a1,a2,y2},{z1,a3,a4},x2}

hope this helps, Daniel
