The other day I needed to remove double line breaks from a list to quickly put it in a spread sheet. Similarly, today I needed to change a list like:
Item; Item; Item;
In order to put it into a spreadsheet.
Here is what I did:
I pasted the list into the default Gnome Text editor and used Find and Replace dialogue (in “hamburger” menu) with “; ” (colon space) in find and “\n” in replace which stands for new line. On Mac or Windows other expressions are used for new line, either (\r\n) or (\r). You could try \r\n?|\n if you are unsure.
