Title: Multi-line search/replace.
Post by: rgloden on May 07, 2016, 05:46:54 am
Multi-line search/replace.

I had a problem today where I needed to do a multiline search / replace.  I wanted to select around 5+ lines (my search pattern), press <cntrl>r (to replace), and do a replace all (with replace string blank) to delete the found multiline pattern in multiple files in my project ... without resorting to a regEx.

Currently it appears that Find/Replace is limited to a single line without resorting to a regEx.
