Since LibreOffice regex engine is crippled and don't support
lookaheads, the
short answer is:
no, you can't do that.

That's a pity.

but only if it's really true ;-)

BUT do lines you want to delete happen to fall into some common
pattern? In
your sample (which may or may not be representative for entire text)
does. In fact you want to delete all lines that start with number
followed by
letter. You can use this regexp to match these lines:


Unfortunately my sample wasn't very accurate and can't be regarded as
fully representative. The pattern is more complex actually.

Then you should try to show a better example as Regex are pattern
matching and without knowing the pattern we cannot guess how to match it


In "real" life :-) there are lines starting with letters also. Only these
with "Set:" at the beginning should be left, rest is going to be deleted.

Set:   01SA34509

Set:   0134501

Set:   0111679SE

I'm surprised that there is no simple way to find everything except


In this very case, if the Set lines are the only ones with a colon,
then this is suddenly a very easy two step task:
First replace ^[^:]*$ with nothing, then replace ^$ with nothing.
Done. But I guess that is not always the case, I'm not sure if that
was mentioned earlier in this thread. If so, sorry for bothering
Maybe someone already suggested this, and I totally missed it as usual.
