Format the first word of the line (dictionary entries)

Post by jrmitchell » 2014-01-11 22:08:03

I have a 500+ item list of dictionary items
How do I write a macro or regex to select all the first words in the lines?

You can do this easily with Powerfind (or Powerfind Pro).
In the Find box do:
  1. Switch to Powerfind
  2. From Special Positions choose Start of Paragraph
  3. From Wild Card choose AnyWord
  4. Do Find All
