Hi

If the line break is a paragraph mark (Enter key)

  • Select the line containing 22222222
  • EditFind & Replace
  • Search For: $
  • Replace With: let the field empty
  • Other options: tick Current selection only and Regular Expressions
  • Replace (or Replace All)

If the line break was inserted with the Shift+Enter key combination.

  • Select the paragraph containing 22222222
  • EditFind & Replace
  • Search For: \n
  • Replace With: let the field empty
  • Other options: tick Current selection only and Regular Expressions
  • Replace (or Replace All)

See help for Regular Expressions here.

[EDIT]

You find empty paragraphs with Search For: ^$

(also a regular expression so do not forget to tick the option)

Regards
