Hey, im trying to find out if there is a way to Copy every text in my file except for the ones i have hidden with ALT + H, if i copy them it also takes all the text thats hidden.
Thanks in advance

Currently there is no way to do that without scripting. Hidden lines isn’t a fully fleshed-out feature in Notepad++.

Maybe something like this:
line_list =  (start_line, end_line) = editor.getUserLineSelection() for L in range(start_line, end_line + 1): if editor.getLineVisible(L): line_list.append(editor.getLine(L)) text = ''.join(line_list) editor.copyText(text)
Note that Scintilla doesn’t do a great job distinguishing lines hidden by code folding and lines hidden by the user, so if you have lines where folding is collapsed, they will NOT be copied by that script code.

Hello @kanagi, @alan-kilborn and All,
In addition to the Alan’s python script, I advice you to read this post first
Then, if not confidential, you could share with us some text with possible hidden parts and we’ll probably be able to find out some regexes to bookmark the non-hidden sections or the hiden ones !
See you later,
