[notepad++] Notepad++ add to every line

I'm using Notepad++ and I can't figure this out :

I have numerous lines all starting with http. I need to add some text in front of it in every line. Also, I need to add different text to the end of each line. Each line ends differently.

What is the fastest way to add text to the start and end of each line?

This question is related to notepad++

The answer is


To append different text to the end of each line, you can use the plugin ConyEdit to do this.
With ConyEdit running in the background, follow these steps.

  1. use the command line cc.gl a to get lines and store in an array named a.
  2. use the command line cc.aal //$a to append after each line, using the contents of array a.

Example

adding a new word at the start & end of the every line in Notepad++ at a single shot


  1. Move your cursor to the start of the first line
  2. Hold down Alt + Shift and use the cursor down key to extend the selection to the end of the block

This allows you to type on every line simultaneously.

I found the solution above here.

I think this is much easier than using regex.


Here is my answer. To add ');' to the end of each line I do 'Find What: $' and 'Replace with: \);' you need to do escape; enter image description here


In order to do it in one go:

  1. Copy and paste the following example text in your notepad++ window:

http:\blahblah.com

http:\blahnotblah.com

http:\blahandgainblah.com

  1. Press Ctrl+H on the notepad++ window
  2. In the Find what box type: ^(.+)$. Here ^ represents the start of the line. $ represents the end of the line. (.+) means any character in between the start and the end of the line and it would be group 1.
  3. In the Replace with box type: WhateverFrontText(\1)WhatEverEndText. Here (\1) means whatever text in a line.
  4. Check the check box Wrap around
  5. Search mode: Regular expression
  6. Result:

WhateverFrontTexthttp:\blahblah.comWhatEverEndText

WhateverFrontTexthttp:\blahnotblah.comWhatEverEndText

WhateverFrontTexthttp:\blahandgainblah.comWhatEverEndText

Notepad++ has a very powerful editing capability. (Today I'm searching for the similar function in Sublime Text), but for Notepad++, just hold Alt when you drag the mouse. What you type will then replace the selected column on every line. To insert without replacing existing text, use Alt-Shift.

enter image description here


Simply in the "Find what:" field, type \r. This means "Ends of the Row". In the "Replace with:" field, you put what you want for instance .xml

if you have several lines, and you are aiming to add that text to the end of the each line, you need to markup the option ". matches newline" in the "Search Mode" group box.

Example:

You have a file name list, but you want to add an extension like .xml. This would be what you need to do and Bang! One shot!:

You can automatically do it in Notepad++ (add text at the beginning and/or end of each line) by using one regular expression in Replace (Ctrl+H):

enter image description here

Explanation: Expression $1 in Replace with input denotes all the characters that include the round brackets (.*) in Find what regular expressin.

Tested, it works.

Hope that helps.


Open Notepad++, then click Ctrl+ F.

Choose Regular Expression

*Find What: "^" (which represents index of the each line - "PREFIX").

Replace with : "anyText"*

enter image description here

For Suffix on each line: Follow the same steps as above "Replace ^ with $" . That's it.


Well, I am posting this after such a long time but this will the easiest of all.

  1. To add text at the beginning/a-certain-place-from-start for all lines, just click there and do ALT+C and you will get the below box. Type in your text and click OK and it's done.

    enter image description here

  2. To add a certain text at end of all lines, do CTRL+F, and choose REPLACE. You will get the below box. Put in '$' in 'find what' and in 'replace with' type in your text.Make sure you choose 'regular expression' in the search mode (left down). Finally click 'replace all' and you are done.

If you have thousands of lines, I guess the easiest way is like this:

-select the line that is the start point for your cursor

-while you are holding alt + shift select the line that is endpoint for your cursor

That's it. Now you have a giant cursor. You can write anything to all of these lines.
