    Removing unnecessary dots (.) from sentences

    Very often one might find titles like the one below, in forums particularly in torrents.

    Microsoft.Windows.Vista.ULTIMATE.x86.SP1.Integrate d.January.2009.OEM.DVD

    There are times one needs to copy & paste the title without these dots. How do we accomplish this task? There is a simple way we can get rid of these etc. dots in every words. Follow the steps below.


    Open Notepad

    Copy and Paste the title in notepad.

    press Ctrl+h to bring the find & replace window on focus.

    In Find what column type "." (dot, without quotes)

    click on Replace with column then press Alt + 255

    Now click on Replace all

    The result will be the words without any dots at all. see below

    the problem with find/replace technique is that you should be pretty sure that the txt you want to convert doesn't have dots you want to keep - this can be somewhat solved with the 'replace next' command (if available)

    also it is useful on larger quantities of txt - considering the title only it would probably take about the same amount of time to remove the dots by hand

    otherwise its a nice technique

    Nice one, but I remember seeing this on another forum.
