Hello from Steved

Is it possible to delete 15 characters In a single word.

In brief 16 characters and over delete.

Thankyou.

Hi Steve,

In Edit Find, check "Match wildcards", and search for
Find what: [a-zA-Z]{16,}

This should match any word with more than 15 characters.



matches at start of word,

[a-zA-Z]
matches any letter,

{16,}
matches 16 or more items of the previous expression,


matches at end of word.


You can then replace that with nothing to delete it.


Regards,
Klaus
