I'm not a regex-er but, using the start Hugo made, I played with this
until it worked.
This would be a single line clip to remove all line numbers that are
followed by a period and 1 or more spaces.
^!Replace ^\d*\.\s* >> ^%empty% TISwAR
The W in TISwAR causes numbers in the entire document to be replaced.
Remove the W and numbers from the cursor position down will be replaced.
You can do this line number replacement with the Replace dialog wizard
too, might be quicker than adding a clip to one of your libraries, but,
with a clip the function is always available.
If you want to try the Replace dialog copy and paste the first series
'^\d*\.\s*', without the quotes, into the top line of the wizard, leave
the bottom line blank.
Hope this will help.
