Use find & replace with GREP functionality. Use a placeholder for the digit.
replace with nothing.
I tried , \d previously with GREP selected and I get no results.
Here is an example
Carrots, Parsnips, Burdock and Sunflower Seeds, 86
I would like to get rid of the comma + space + digits at the end of each paragraph.
I can use \d I can get rid of the number, but if I add the comma and space....it doesn't work
thank you for your help!!!
Probably means it isn't an "ordinary" space or there's more than one... try ,\s+\d+
Warning, \s matches paragraph and line breaks, too, so be careful if this is going to be a problem.
I would try:
Maybe that the space is not a normal space but some other white space.
Another reason could be that the , is not a comma but an apostrophe e.g. in German the single and double opening quotation look like , and „. In others languages too, that is sometimes confusing the GREP.
Thanks Peter....that worked!
I didn't try Willi's idea, since ,\s+\d+ did the trick!
thank you both!
The only differnce is that mine will find multiple spaces, Willi's only one.
If you turn on non-printing characters you can identify waht that space really is, though, and write a less generic query.
