Removing button names etc from a list of blogs/files/emails copied from a website (Gedit, Fedora)

Often if I have copied a list of blogs, files or emails from an app or website, where there is no export function, button names such as “Edit” and “Delete” will copy over. Often in a small list of items there will be several repeated junk phrases for each item of text I actually need.

I have found the quickest way to remove these is to:

Paste the data into a text editor, select and copy the unnecessary text and all the surroundings punctuation:

Paste it into the find and replace box

And replace it with nothing!

Quick and easy 🙂
