missing a filter to remove empty lines [DONE]

Postby MvG » 02 Jun 2017, 09:44

Hi Centeractive,

as I'm using retrospective not only to analyse "log" files, but also all types of files (csv,txt) because I love the filters I get in the tool to exclude certain lines.
The last file used had a lot of empty lines, which I would like to get rid off.

I'm missing a filter like 'not empty line' to reduce the result, or is there another way to achieve this ?

Thanks a lot Martin

Dear Martin

Thanks a lot for your input.

You should check out the following filter, which should meet your needs:

Text contains: [.]+ (Regex checked)

Best regards,
Helen

There's actually an even simpler solution that doesn't require regex. Enter a single question mark (?).

The question mark (?) matches a single character at a specific position. When used alone, it matches non-empty values.
