How to remove blank lines in Adobe Dreamweaver

As I am creating websites I sometimes come across situations that require a more than basic knowledge and a bit of research to figure out.

I don’t use Dreamweaver as my primary code editor but when it comes to its search & replace functionality it’s great. Here’s a helpful hint regarding removing blank lines from an html file using dreamweaver, should you ever want to do that without having to manually delete the lines…

  1. Click CTRL + F
  2. Select “Current document” in “Find in” (You can also select the folder if you have multiple files)
  3. Search in “Source code”
  4. Tick “Use regular expression”
  5. Type “[\r\n]{2,}” (without quotes) in “Find”
  6. Type “\n” (without quotes) in “Replace”
  7. Press “Replace All”

That’s it. Have fun.
