    hello!

    can you help me please to make these macros:

    – delete everything included in brackets () including the brackets themselves

    – delete everything included in brackets [] including the brackets themselves

    – delete everything after the first ( in everyline, including the bracket itself

    – delete double or more spaces (not tabs) and replace them with one space

    – replace the text of each line with the url of the first google result of the search of that text

    – replace the text of each line with the http://www.domain.com/ of the first google result of the search of that text (not the first url, which can be http://something.domain.com/something/more, but the http://www.domain.com/ only)

    thanks!

    Please try to find better subject lines for your threads
    and use different threads for different kind of topics.

    To do most of this, best learn Regular Expressions.

    For example on:
    – delete everything included in brackets (xxx) including the (brackets) themselves

    Find: (.+?)
    Replace:
    [X] Use Regular Expressions

    will match first
    (xxx)
    and then
    (brackets)

    due to the ‘?’ regex parameter.

    Whereas

    Find: (.+)
    Replace:
    [X] Use Regular Expressions

    will match whole
    (xxx) including the (brackets)

    – – –

    For [ and ]
    use

    Find: [.+]
    Replace:
    [X] Use Regular Expressions

    – – –

    – delete everything after the first ( in everyline, including the bracket itself

    Try
    Find: (.+$
    Replace:
    [X] Use Regular Expressions

    – – –

    – delete double or more spaces (not tabs) and replace them with one space

    Try
    Find: ~~+
    Replace: ~
    [X] Use Regular Expressions

    (instead of ‘~’ enter an blank each)

    To create a macro try to utilize
    – “Macro > Start”
    – do the work, here the find and replace job
    – “Macro > Stop”
    – “Macro > Edit” –> you will see the macro code to reuse
    (you may want to read the help about e.g. “eeFindSaveHistory” and remove this from the macro)

    – – –

    For the other questions *I* suggest you to open different threads
    for each topic to not mix up all the answers and queries and for an back.
