Here's a snippet of a youtube auto-generated CC transcript. Can
someone show how to delete the lines that have times? as far as i
know they are strictly alternating and have exactly 1 colon, but that's
where my smarts end. Anyone have a suggestion?
If you indeed just need to remove all odd-numbered lines of the text,
you could do this:
o Paste the material into column A of a spreadsheet, starting at A1 -
so that each line occupies one cell.
o In cell B1 (say), enter =OFFSET(A$1,ROW()*2-1,0)
o Fill down column B.
I think this works whether your original "lines" are separated by
line breaks or are actually separate paragraphs. You can copy and
paste the material in column B back into a text document for further
formatting as required, of course.
I trust this helps.
