Use a search replace pattern to find the data and replace with nothing e.g.

Code: Select all

ex SUMMARY.*?


this will remove all data after the phrase - just ensure you increase the maximum match buffer size (under the [...] replace options button) so it can match more than 4096 bytes - set it to 40000.
