Isolated Block of Text

In past discussions, the use of isolating a block of html allowing all regex operate only on the isolated block. Very handy.

If this has been implemented how does one activate it?

If you don't have too many to do you could ctrl-enter and beginning and end, do your regexing and then remerge...what a pain.

Hi, Charlie:

I don't know if your budget allows it, but have you considered RegexBuddy for that type of thing? I find it invaluable, both for my endless (and endless and endless) learning of Regex, studying other people's regex to find great ideas, and for precisely this type of thing: pop a block of text in, regex it and copy it back to the source document.

I suppose, without spending any ducats, you could simply do the same thing (I've done this, also) by copying the block in question to your HTML editor (I'm a NoteTabPro fan, myself), do the regex and then copy it back. Those are my best suggestions.

Dear Lady,

Since I do almost all editing in epp I have no problem handling these areas. Unless I have really screwed-up and find an error well into Sigil formating and wish to repair it in sigil.

I use epp, regexbuddy (which I call Regex for Dummys), PowerGrep and AceText all of which will handle any and all jobs I have come across.

Being able to isolate a block of html, e.g.
Code:
<blockquote>
<p>...</p>
<p>...</p>
<p>...</p>
<p>...</p>
</blockquote>
and quickly convert it to

Code:
<blockquote>
<div>   </div>
<div>   </div>
<div>   </div>
<div>   </div>
</blockquote>
without bothering any code beyond is a great time saver and less error prone.

It seems that great mind run in similar channels.

PS. Rumor has it that the next version of epp will open ePub files for edit.

Why would you want <div> instead of <p> inside a blockquote?

Report from a Dummy

I finally found it

In Codeview, highlight the desired block of code.

Right click on the highlighted code and select:
Mark Selected Test

Perform whatever regex you wish

Right click selected taxt again and select:
Unmark Marked Text

Another little treasure unearthed. The geniuses at Sigil have come through again

New question***

Is there a method of highlighting a block of code other than dragging the cursor?

e.g.:
Ctl Alt B (mark beginning)
Ctl Alt E (mark end.

Here's what I do:

1) place cursor at start of block (i.e. click at start)
2) hold shift + click at end of block.
