In this tutorial, I will show you how to keep only those lines in text that contain some specific text.
Sometime it happens that you may need to directly find any line with some specific text from a paragraph or any article, and delete the rest of the lines to directly focus on the lines bearing these specific text. Doing this conventionally by deleting every line which don’t have those specific words one by one can be very hectic. But you don’t need to worry, as I have brought you this wonderful software that can easily fulfill this need with only a few key strokes.

It carefully looks for the specific words you entered in every line and then delete all the lines that do not have those specific words. It only keeps all the lines bearing those specific texts so that you can actually focus on these lines only.
