Prefix and suffix a text entry at start of every line
Enjoy Notepad++. Much appreciated.
I’m stumped. Needing to change following, for egs.
1 xxx zzz
2 aaa ddd
(1) xxx zzz
(2) aaa ddd
Similarly same for last entry of every line.
I have Googled to no avail.
Really appreciate help thank you.
from your provided data I would assume that you are looking for
find what:^\d replace with:\($0\)
with regular expression checked.
But it might be that the find what needs to be modified if two or more digits form a number,
but I can’t say for sure as I don’t know how your data really looks like.
I’ll try this when get back to office later today.
My data is a bit more complex than shown above.
100 12°15’34" 12.562 o’stones
101 35°38’56" 17.765 p&r fence
102 84°40’10“ 25.456 bricks
And so on in similar fashion
The numbers (point numbers) at beginning of each line maybe any numeral from 1 to say 1000, and random.
then replace “find with” with this one
^ marks that it is the start of the line
\d it must be a digit
and the plus sign at the end tells that it must be at least 1 digit,
without the plus sign it is looking for exactly one digit.
Replace with is still the same.
Many thanks Claudia. Brilliant.
Thanks for taking the time to explain this.
In much appreciation
