    How do I select all text that is between two markers?

    in editplus

    1. Go to the first marker and hit Alt-Shift-B.
    2. Go to the second marker and do the same.

    Alt-Shift-B is the shortcut key for Edit -> Select -> Begin/End Select

    isn't working on notepad++??

    or

    How to get the same effect as above?

    In a macro, I would like to use this feature.
    For example,
    Find words A
    Find the word B
    Deletes all characters between the words.
    Ctrl + F -> A -> begin select -> Ctrl + F -> B -> end select -> delete
    Seems to be available via the same procedure as above.
    Notepad + + does not provide these functions (begin / end select) can do similar things in different ways?

    WOW!!!!
    I feel really grateful about this patch!
    But how to use it?

     
  • Well, I think it has a good chance of making it into the next release, so the easiest way is probably just to wait a while.

    The other option is to build Notepad++ yourself (but if you're not a programmer this is bound to be a bit problematic):

    1) Install Visual C++ (the express edition is free, http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/products/2010-editions/visual-cpp-express )
    2) Install TortoiseSVN, http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/
    3) Clone the N++ source code repository using TortoiseSVN (the repo url is svn://svn.tuxfamily.org/svnroot/notepadplus/repository  )
    4) Apply the patch to the source code tree using TortoiseSVN.
    5) Build.

    Hmm..
    the second solution is too difficult to me :)
    I''ll gladly wait for the next release.
    thx
