Multiple selection and replace with a blank line

#1 Multiple selection and replace with a blank line

Posted by: karama | Date: 11/11/2016 10:46 | IP: IP Logged

I would like to select, from a text document, a part of line in order to replace it with a blank line

eg.
I would like remove a full line where are present the followings strings:
"Temperature Sensor: OK" and "Light Sensor: OK"

Below the result that I would like to get:

Before selection
--> 00:00:04:125 Light Sensor: OK
--> 00:00:06:93 Temperature Sensor: OK
--> 00:00:06:93 Light Sensor: OK
--> 00:00:08:46 Temperature Sensor: OK
--> 00:00:08:46 Light Sensor: OK
--> 00:00:08:46 Humidity Sensor: Ok
--> 00:00:10:15 Temperature Sensor: OK
--> 00:00:10:15 Light Sensor: OK
--> 00:00:12:0 Temperature Sensor: OK
--> 00:00:12:0 Light Sensor: OK
--> 00:00:14:15 Temperature Sensor: OK

After selection
--> 00:00:08:46 Humidity Sensor: Ok

Thanks!!!
