Regexp help



  • Hi all,

    I would like to replace text between two tags with a new line (\n).
    The starting tag is: <!-- - <a href="#">
    The ending tag is: <strong>

    Example:

    • input:
      textbefore<tag1>abcdefg<tag2>textafter

    • output:
      textbefore
      textafter

    Could someone be some kind to help me?

    Thanks in advance,

    cid

    Sure…fairly easy. In fact, so easy that if you know the term “Regexp” then you should be able to get this one yourself. But here you go:

    Find what zone: (?-s)<tag1>.+?<tag2>
    Replace with zone: \r\n <—if using Windows line-endings
    Search mode selection: Regular expression



  • Done, Thanks for your help!

    I’m familiar with regexp concept but never used them before.

    Best regards,
