Replace a character by using a list of names



  • Any way to incorporate a list into with the “replace with” function so for example a list in another document is formatted like a list and I want to find a single word in another document and I want to replace that word with that entire list for each line without it showing the entire list for each “character” I replace all at once.
    LIST
    “Z”
    “X”
    “C”
    “V”
    “B”

    Find what: ''Character"
    Replace with: “Z” “X” “C” “V” “B”

    “Character”>“Z”
    “Character”>“X”
    “Character”>“C”
    “Character”>“V”
    “Character”>“B”

    Any help would be appreciated I am just getting started in learning how notepad++ works thanks.



  • I am afraid this is not possible with the build-in Replace function.
    You could however install the PythonScript plugin, where you can then script such a replace.
