Remove empty lines and timestamp from subtitle file in Notepad++



  • i want remove empty lines and timestamp from subtitle file in Notepad++

    I know this question has already been asked and the answer is this code: ^[\d\s\n].*\n

    But if at the beginning of the text is a number, That line is also deleted.

    For example, on the following lines:

    1- We’ve already seen better ways to organise our code

    2- we’ve seen ways to deal with files,

    1
    00:00:01.876 --> 00:00:02.709
    <v Instructor>We can go back now</v>

    2
    00:00:02.709 --> 00:00:05.042
    to our web server checklist.

    3
    00:00:06.410 --> 00:00:08.722
    1- We’ve already seen better ways to organise our code

    4
    00:00:08.722 --> 00:00:11.545
    into reusable pieces with modules,

    5
    00:00:11.545 --> 00:00:13.315
    2- we’ve seen ways to deal with files,

    6
    00:00:13.315 --> 00:00:15.940
    both synchronous and asynchronous,

    7
    00:00:15.940 --> 00:00:16.773
    and buffers,

    8
    00:00:16.773 --> 00:00:18.325
    both the built-in Node one

    9
    00:00:18.325 --> 00:00:20.380
    and the ES6 buffers,

    10
    00:00:20.380 --> 00:00:22.485
    and we’ve seen a way to deal with work

    If I remove lines in a replacement by matching them with this regex: ^\R|^\d\d:.+\R, I am left with this:

    1- We’ve already seen better ways to organise our code
    2- we’ve seen ways to deal with files,
    1
    <v Instructor>We can go back now</v>
    2
    to our web server checklist.

    If that's not what you asked for, learn to ask better, or better yet, show exact "after" text that you want to achieve.
