I have a lot of linefeeds (or CRLF's) to remove from a document - I mean hundreds.

Is there relatively simple way to delete a bunch of these things quickly? Point and click is getting hard on my back...

Get the AltSearch extension.

Thank you very much. That's very powerful.

If I may ask, how would you approach the problem I described. I got it done much more quickly using the "empty paragraph" search. But to my surprise that feature also tagged horizontal lines as empty paragraphs.

I would have done it with AltSearch - and I'd have found, like you, that lines are apparently also considered as empty paragraphs.
