Two simple Qs



  • Hi there
    I am looking for easy way to do below two things.

    1. If a line has a certain word/string then delete that line
    2. Delete a certain number of characters from the end on each line
      Appreciate if anyone can support
      Thanks

    Experiment with the following:

    Case 1:

    To delete lines containing the text string “yourword
    Find what zone: (?-is)^.*?\Qyourword\E.*?\R
    Replace with zone: Make sure this zone is empty!
    Search mode: Regular expression

    Case 2:

    To delete the last 4 (for example) characters from each line:
    Find what zone: (?-s).{4}$
    Replace with zone: Make sure this zone is empty!
    Search mode: Regular expression
    Note: A line must have at least 4 characters on it to be affected!
