How to put marked lines in parenthesis?



  • Hi,
    how can i put marked lines in parenthesis?

    For example:

    1: kjhdfgjhgjfkdjhg dsfkjhg sdkjh gf
    2: kfjgljjfgkf flf gli f fsljh f
    3: khfkjhkjhsdkjhfjfkjhf fjfj wer erwer
    4: nmdfss sjh ewr s dfjh f skjh f

    now I select (mark) line 2 and 3 and the solution should look like this:

    1: kjhdfgjhgjfkdjhg dsfkjhg sdkjh gf
    (2: kfjgljjfgkf flf gli f fsljh f)
    (3: khfkjhkjhsdkjhfjfkjhf fjfj wer erwer)
    4: nmdfss sjh ewr s dfjh f skjh f

    how can I achieve that? :)

    if this is a one time job use find and replace dialog with regular expression
    and in selection checked. If you need to do this over and over again, record
    a macro and save it. I will describe the steps for the macro as it contains the step
    for find/replace as well.

    1. Select the lines you want to modify

    2. press record macro

    3. press ctrl+h (to open the replace dialog)

    4. put the following into the find inputbox

        ^(.*)$
      
    5. put the following into the replace inputbox

        \(\1\)
      
    6. check box in selection

    7. check box Regular expression

    8. press replace all

    9. press save macro
      and give it a meaningful name.
      It appears now under the macro menu

    Cheers
