Notepad++ is my favourite text editor. It’s incomparably more powerful in feature-rich than Windows Notepad, however, even Notepad++ can’t do proper multi-line search and replace out of the box.

Notepad++ Find and Replace

Sure, you can enable the Extended search mode and mark each new line with \n, but this is clunky and only practical if you have only a few lines of text to replace.

For anything bigger, I’d suggest installing the ToolBucket plugin (Plugins > Plugins Admin). After it’s installed, click on Plugins > ToolBucket > Multiline find and replace.

Couldn’t be any simpler…
