How to replace all the "FS" (value 28) symbols in Notepad++?
I cannot copy or paste them...
Select one of them and then open the Replace dialog (Ctrl+H).
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 !
You will find good documentation, about the new PRCE Regular Expressions,
used by N++, since the 6.0 version, at the TWO addresses below :
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 !
Thank you Guy, you are a genius.
