Re: remove lines containing 1-3 digits, - and . only

Hi again,

Please ignore the above, I think I've done it:

Code: Select all

[ lineStart, 1-4 (digits or period or hyphen or comma or space), lineEnd ]
Seems to be working for me.

Thanks you so much again for your help.

Regards.

Re: remove lines containing 1-3 digits, - and . only

Hi again,

I tried adding the filter as you suggested, but the lines I am trying to remove are still there.
Anything else you can think of I could try please?

Thank you.

Thanks again,

Glenn.
