Finding and deleting entire paragraphs.
I would like to find all paragraphs in a document that do not contain “2016” and delete them. Is there an expression for that?

Probably but can you be precise as to what your meaning of paragraph is?
Sorry for not replying earlier. I’ll watch more closely from now on. By paragraph I mean a string between paragraph markers. In notepad++ they show as two black boxes that say “CR LF”

Well, most people call what you’ve defined “lines” and not “paragraphs”, but that’s why I asked.
You can remove all lines not containing 2016 as follows:
Replace with: make sure this is empty
Search mode: Regular expression
That works. Thank you very much!
