Remove first line if blank?

Postby fantomaster » Tue Nov 14, 2006 4:08 pm

How can I remove the first line in a text if blank only?
(In pseudo code: CHECK first line IF BLANK delete ELSE skip file)

The included filter "Remove lines" doesn't seem to include this functionality and I couldn't find anything pertinent in the forum.

Use the Restrict to Lines 1..1, and inside this, a remove blank lines filter.

Yes, now you put it that way it's fairly obvious, isn't it? :lol:

Thanks a lot!
