Using LO 220.127.116.11 Writer on Linux Mageia-4.
I've got a document within which I would like to temporarily see
displayed only those lines containing a given character string.
The first things to say is that word processors don't really have a
concept of "lines": paragraphs flow naturally according to such
things as fonts, font sizes, page size and orientation, margin
settings, and so on. So what constitutes a line can vary as the
document is edited. Of course, your lines may in fact be separate paragraphs.
Does writer have such a filter function?
o If you use Find & Replace, you will see a Find All button. This
will highlight all the occurrences of your chosen search string. Is
that as good as you need?
o If your "lines" are actually (short) paragraphs, you could use Find
and Replace to search for ^.*xyz.*$ with "Regular expressions" ticked
- where "xyz" is the required string. Find All will highlight all
paragraphs containing "xyz".
I trust this helps.
