Feature Request: Odd/Even/Nth line selection



  • Hello,

    It doesn’t seem like there has ever been a way to select every Nth line in Notepad++ for editing.

    This is a much needed feature that currently can only be done using complex RegEx expressions that don’t always work.

    it would be very useful to have a feature to allow the user to select Every Nth line within a current selection.

    Thanks,

    It doesn’t seem like there has ever been a way to select every Nth line in Notepad++ for editing.

    depends what you mean, if it is about automated selection by providing a number, then no
    but manually it can be done (press CTRL while selection with the mouse)

    it would be very useful to have a feature to allow the user to select Every Nth line within a current selection.

    Could you elaborate on this? Afaik scintilla doesn’t allow to have a selection within a selection.

    Cheers
    Claudia
