  • Hello, @meтe-ялчынкая and All,

    Very easy with regular expressions or bookmarks !

    • A) With bookmarks :

      • Open the Mark dialog ( Ctrl + M )

      • SEARCH #

      • Untick all the options

      • Tick the Bookmark line option

      • Tick the Wrap around option

      • Click on the Mark All button

      • Then, run the menu option Search > Bookmark > Remove Bookmarked Lines


    • B) With regular expressions ( faster ! )

      • Open the Replace dialog ( Ctrl + H )

      • SEARCH (?-s)^.*#.*\R

      • REPLACE Leave EMPTY

      • Untick all the options

      • Tick the Wrap around option

      • Click on the Replace All button

    The search regex searches, from beginning of line ( ^ ) for any range of standard characters, even none ( .* ), followed with a # char, and again, with any range of standard characters, even none( .* ), till the EOL characters of current line ( \R )

    Best regards
