    Hello,

    How to replace all the "FS" (value 28) symbols in Notepad++?

    I cannot copy or paste them...

    Many thanks,

    Select one of them and then open the Replace dialog (Ctrl+H).

    Hi Robert,

    It's quite easy with regular expressions !

    • Set the "Regular expression" search mode.

    • Type \x1C in the SEARCH dialog ( HEXA value of 28 ) .

    • Leave the REPLACEMENT dialog EMPTY.

    • Click on the "Replace All" button => All the FS character ( "File Separator" ) are removed, at once.

    I did the test on your attached file and it's all OK !

    Cheers,

    P.S. :

    You will find good documentation, about the new PRCE Regular Expressions,
    used by N++, since the 6.0 version, at the TWO addresses below :

    http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_48_0/libs/regex/doc/html/boost_regex/syntax/perl_syntax.html

    http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_48_0/libs/regex/doc/html/boost_regex/format/boost_format_syntax.html

    The FIRST link concerns the syntax of regular expressions in SEARCH

    The SECOND link concerns the syntax of regular expressions in REPLACEMENT

    BTW : Your S/R works, as well, with a version older than 6.0 !
