Replacing multiple lines of text
Enter or copy-and-paste the text you want to search for. You don't need any special treatment for line separators.
This feature is useful for replacing banner code and other repeating elements. Note that regular expressions can span multiple lines, too. Aba handles text files with Windows (CR+LF) and Unix-style (LF) line terminators, and you don't need to specify the terminator explicitly.
