22561RE: [NTB] Remove x number of characters from a line of text
- May 27, 2012Yes, that's easy, but first some questions:
Can there be ONE number after a space at the end of a line that you want to keep?
Can there be FOUR or more numbers after that space at the end of a line that you want to keep?
If it is as simple as removing any numbers at the end of a line that are preceded by a space? That is very easy. If it
is ONLY two or three numbers, that is slightly different.
Do you want a clip that you can repeatedly use for this job, or do you just want to use a find/replace to do it one
If the latter, in the find box, you choose the regex option, and enter \x20\d+$ and replace it with nothing for any
numbers after a space at the end of a line.
For the case where it is ONLY two or three numbers, it would be \x20\d\d\d?$ and replace that with nothing.

Subject: [NTB] Remove x number of characters from a line of text
Discovered Notetab about 6 years ago, and been using it ever since.
I bought the full version, but haven't really (up until this point) dived into the real 'heavy lifting' that I suspect
it is capable of.
But now I have a job to do, and want to know if Notetab Pro can do what I want.
I have a series of text files where each line contains a set of data.
Each line ends with either a 2 digit number, or a 3 digit number, either of which is preceded by a space.
Those numbers are no longer relevent to the data, and I'd like to be able to strip off those characters from the end of
Is there a way to write some kind of macro in Notetab Pro that essentially says "look for the last space on a line,
followed by a 2 or 3 digit number. now remove the space and the digits which follow it"?
Thanks in advance!
