Removing Bookmarked Lines

    Hello All,

    I'm trying to use the 'remove bookmarked lines' to remove all % icons from a robocopy log (the file is 150MB, a huge amount of data) in order to shrink it down. I go into Mark, bookmark all lines with %, then go to bookmark -> remove bookmarked lines. All of the bookmark icons go away, but the lines with % in them are still there.

    I can no longer even manually remove them, but still see them. Is there a finalize option or command, something I'm missing? The lines are not actually going away, although the bookmark icon is.

    Essentially I just want any line with % removed from the document... I'm trying to learn how to find and replace while having replace delete the line. Any help on that front either?

    Sounds like a bug. I have used the Mark and remove bookmark lines before with no problems - probably related to the size of the file.
    You can always install the Python plugin and write a little script to do it.
    You can also use PowerShell to do the same thing.
