    Hello. I create a macro to replace some strings in texts. What I need is to delete the empty lines in the file at the last step. I try to use “document.selection.Replace”, but it looks it doesn’t work.
    Would you please share me an idea? Thanks!

    If your empty line contains just a newline try this:
    document.selection.Replace(“^$\n”, “”, eeReplaceAll | eeFindReplaceRegExp)

    If your empty line contains spaces and tabs try this:
    document.selection.Replace(“^[[:blank:]]{1,}$\n”, “”, eeReplaceAll | eeFindReplaceRegExp)

    Thank you,FuzzyBear!
    It works very well on those empty lines in the file, but It looks it doesn’t work for last empty line. See the screenshot!

    What I want is like this:

    Sorry, please copy the link to your address bar of IE explorer and then open it. Click directly will get en error!

    That is because we are trying to match
    “Start-of-line, none-or-more whitespace, Linebreak”
    “^\\s*\\n”
     
     But the very last line didn’t have a linebreak at all.
     
     

    Better is to match
    “Linebreak, none-or-more whitespace, End-of-line”
    “\\n\\s*$”

    document.selection.Replace(“\\n\\s*$”,””,eeFindNext | eeReplaceSelOnly | eeReplaceAll | eeFindReplaceRegExp);

    – – – 
     

    Or, for really empty lines only (don’t remove those with whitespace)
    “Linebreak, End-of-line”
    “\\n$”

    document.selection.Replace(“\\n$”,””,eeFindNext | eeReplaceAll | eeReplaceSelOnly | eeFindReplaceRegExp);

    Now it works ver well!
    document.selection.Replace("\\n$","",eeFindNext | eeFindReplaceRegExp | eeReplaceAll);

    Thanks again!
