Re: Preserving Start Marker Despite Window Change

Patrick Le Baudour


Can't you just do it in two steps?

copy everything to a new document if needed (shouldn't be necessary with notepad++, you can always reload from disk),
go to the start of the wanted part, remove everything above
then find the end and remove the remainder or select from the start and copy.

Dear all,

I am currently editing an HTML file in Notepad++ and am trying to
delete all its content except one line. I am needing to juggle text
around a little bit right now (there is lots of metadata that I need
to wade through). Ideally, I would use the Find dialog to get to the
relevant points in the file to insert the start and end markers.
However, opening Find seems to (understandably) cause NVDA to forget
the start marker just set (likely because entering the Find dialog is
being treated as focusing a new window). Is there any way to work
around this?

I would appreciate any inputs!

Kind Regards,
