Text  ›  Advanced character remove or replace...

This utility removes or replaces certain characters in your worksheet or selected cells.
You can pick one or more characters from a list, including numbers, letters, special characters, symbols, tabs, new line characters (enters) and invisible spaces and characters.

A few practical examples of this utility:
  • remove all line breaks such as carriage returns and linefeeds (Alt+Enter) from your data
  • remove invisible characters
  • extract numbers from text
  • remove everything except for certain characters

    Several buttons allow you to quickly select or deselect certain characters.

    Your last used settings will be remembered.

    Note:
    You can use the following codes to use these special characters as replacement: {lf} = line feed (Alt+Enter/ascii code 10), {cr} = carriage return (ASCII code 13), {tab} = tab character.
    If you have selected only one single cell then the utility will edit all the cells on your worksheet.
