    I want to match the text:


    aabb
    xxxxx
    xxxxx
    xxxxx
    ...
    ccdd

    using my Regular Expression:


    aabbn(.*n)+ccdd

    Unfortunately, I found “(.*n)+” did not work on EmEditor.
    But UltraEdit can do it very well with Unix style re. UE support Perl styel, Unix style and UltraEdit style Regular Expression syntax. I guess EE use Perl style Regular Expression.

    Allow regular expressions to match new-lines (Customize -> Search).

    I want to replace some text that spans multiple lines with some other text. If I copy the text across the lines I can’t then paste it into the find box even though Use regular Expressions is checked.

    I expected that the new lines would be automatically converted into n.

    thanks

    Hi Derek,

    You can check “Multiline” option on Find or Replace dialogue, then the text box will expand to multiline.

    Wish that helps. 🙂
