Search and replace macro in Writer

I am downloading files for work that have multiple variations of <font color="#CCCCCC">at the end of every line of text. How would I (as either Regular Expressions or a Basic macro) delete brackets and anything in between them?



Try the regular expression <.*> as your search and empty as your replace. Remember to check Regular expressions and try it on a copy of your data, as I don’t claim to be a regex expert :slight_smile: This will capture all angle brackets; if you specifically need only the tag at the end of a line, try <.*>$

That’s it!! Thank you so much!
