How to Delete specific text blocks between two characters on multiple lines using regexp in notepad++:

We wanted to find a way to remove the brackets and the letters between the brackets in a large text file with many lines, i.e. delete specific text blocks between two characters.

To remove the start bracket and the end bracket and any words between, everywhere in the text-file, we used:

<.*?.*?>

See image below for the settings, ensure it’s set to Regular expression and tick the box:
. means newline“.
