The plugin TextFX from Notepad++ handles this as well. And has already done this for years.

EmEditor excels at reading big text files, all other (Windows) text editors could learn from that.

...

I hadn't known that some of these processors had plugins at all! Except browsers, very few programs make me think "what plugins are there" ?

There's a few for Libre and/or Open Office, but they always struck me as rather obscure and not too useful for my uses. It makes sense, but I wouldn't have thought about plugins at all for Notepad++ at all!

Thanks Shades!

Thanks Shades!

However, when those lines get hidden using TextFX Viz, I don't get the little markers in the margin if I want to see one portion of what was hidden. If I hide the lines manually, the markers show up and work as expected.

Wow! Lines filtering based on keywords/phrase is a really useful feature.  :Thmbsup:

I already use the features line bookmarks and code folding in text editors. But lines filtering complements those other two features. I wish both line bookmarks and lines filtering were available everywhere - not just in text editors! In web browser, pdf readers, word processors and so on.

This does real time search (but not editing in the 'lite' free version)
depeche view lite

Work around ? <Cntl><Shift><C> will copy filtered text to clipboard

EditPad Pro.  There's a "Fold" option in the search panel that does exactly this.

+1 EPP rocks regex!

At $50 its a bargain (if you're into regex). I'm so hooked on its power now that I'd crawl a mile through a sewer and pay 10 times that much for it - and would *still* feel as though I got a good deal!

If you're a Sublime Text user, you can do what you're asking for with the Filter Lines plugin. You can filter or fold using strings or a RegEx. Use the fold function if you want to show the lines containing your search term in the currently open document.
