Removing Duplicates in NotePad ++

Removing Duplicates in NotePad ++

November 10, 2017

Back on October 19, 2015, the Tip of the Night described a method to dedupe strings in a column of text using a RegEx search in NotePad ++.    Here's an alternative method to use in NotePad ++ which doesn't require running a RegeEx.   Catherine Wilhelm send posted the following solution on her blog.  


Paste the column of data you want to dedupe in NotePad ++.   Press CTRL + A to select all of the data.   Then in the TextFX . . . TextFX Tools menu confirm that that T: +Sort outputs only UNIQUE (at column) lines is checked off. 



 Then simply click on T: Sort lines case insensitive (at column), and you'll get a column of deduped strings.
