Add sequential numbers to selected lines in Notepad++



  • Is there a way to create a macro that will turn:

    one
    two
    three
    

    into:

    1. one
    2. two
    3. three
    

    In Textpad, in regular expressions mode, one simply replaces “^” with "\i. " and binds it to a macro name.



  • @Sean-McBride

    ALT+C (column editor) could make it in three steps.

    make sure you are in the very first column

    1. add the space
    2. add the dot
    3. add the numbers

    Cheers

  • If you have more than a few lines to number, consider using the “Number to Insert” feature of the “Column / Multi-Selection Editor”…see the Edit menu’s “Column Editor…” selection, in addition to Claudia’s suggestion to inserting the . and the space.
