    not 100% sure I understand what you want to achieve.
    Am I right to assume that the find result window should display all three lines as a single match?
    If so, afaik this doesn’t work - it shows only one line but if you click on that line it will
    open the file with the three lines preselected.

    Or do you have something other in mind?

    Cheers

    To get good help, you’re probably going to have to show a bit more data. Sure, some ambitious people here could make some guesses (i.e., do a lot of mental work), but why put them thru that?

    Put 4 spaces on the front of every line of data in Notepad++ before copying and pasting here, for best results. If you see a black background on your data in the preview pane as you are composing your post, you are doing it right. Such a black box would look like this:

    I acutally have 4 spaces before the "I", when I was Composed
    Me, too, but before my "M"
