How can i delete several dots within a string ?

As the dot has Special meaning in PFrank, i was not yet able to find out, how to define a deletion of dots.

Example:

OLD:
How to make .....URL

NEW:
How to make.URL

thx, stefan

Sorry Stefan - I was away.

Yes you can delete dots by escaping them with a backslash in the search string.

Here's an example that will change 2 to 9 consecutive dots to 1 (don't copy the single quotes):

Row: 1
Search: '\.{2,9}'
Replace: '.'


Peter.
