Remove lines by character count

Post by mozzer » Fri Jul 20, 2012 7:07 am


I'm trying to remove lines that contain less than 100 characters.

I tried Filters\Remove\Remove lines\Remove non-matching lines with Easypattern and [ linestart, 100 or more letters or digits, lineend ], without success.

Thanks for your help.

That should work, although I would use an Easypattern of

[ linestart, 100 or more chars, lineend ]
