How to remove line numbers and space from the beginning of all lines of a file?

    Hello,

    I'm trying to create a script or macro to search each line as far as the first space character, select all text before and including the space and delete it. Here's some sample text, I want to remove all the numerical values from the beginning of each line. You can see there is a line between lines 9 and 10 staring with a Q which should not be affected. The format of the file is always the line number, space, then the content of the line.

    Code: Select all

    1 BEGIN PGM Model_0 MM
    2 ; 07.01.2022   14:53
    3 BLK FORM 0.1 Z X-75 Y-25 Z199.75

    104 L X-82.217 Y-24.709 Z240.25
    
    I was working with this but it keeps searching every line for every space character, I couldn't get it to stop after the first one.

    Code: Select all

    InsertMode
    ColumnModeOn
    HexOff
    UltraEditReOn
    Find " "
    IfFound
    DeleteToStartofLine
    MoveLineDown

      The macro code for removal of line numbers at beginning of all lines using an UltraEdit regular expression replace all is:

      Code: Select all

      InsertMode
      ColumnModeOff
      HexOff
      Top
      UltraEditReOn
      Find MatchCase RegExp "%[0-9]+ +"
      Replace All ""
      
      The plus after the space character can be removed to delete just the first space together with the line number.
