#1 Can I use Macro for this?

Posted by: hlk123 | Date: 10/19/2016 12:24 | IP: IP Logged

Hello

I've a Textfile .. and a line looks something like this:

Chapter 12 - Adverbs ( 副词) ; 79

I want to delete the part "( 副词)" ... between the round brackets (or parentheses) .. plus the round brackets.
And I want to use Macro for that .. because there are many lines with a similar appearance.
Is it possible? How?
Thank you.

It will be better to use regular expressions
search: (.*)(\(.*\))(.*)
replace: $1$3
[x]Regula expressions

explanation:
you split lines to 3 parts (round brackets) and in replace you will use substitution for first and third part only
