      Thanks Amy, this is a very cool tip! I knew about the column feature in notepad++ but this is even more helpful!!

      Thanks for this tip. If this is possible it seems like it should also be possible to sort columns of data in NotePad ++, and separate data by specified values as with Excel’s Text to Column tool. I have tried to figure out how to do this, but have failed. Do you happen to know how to go about it?

      • Awesome to hear, Chassidy. Good to hear from you, it’s been a while.
