  1. Hi
    I cannot seem to find a way to remove </span> tags with SubtitleEdit

    I tried right clicking the line and choosing normal (remove formatting) and doesnt seem to work.

    In Subtitle Workshop you first select "select all" then right click in the text and select remove all tags

    I think if you do the same and select normal? that removes formatting...??? Maybe you have to Select all for it to work

    Thanks for your help. I would like to use only one program for subtitles and I would like to know if this can be done with SubtitleEdit only...
    I tried selecting all lines in SubtitleEdit but still it didn't work.

  5. If you use regular expressions you can remove the complete tag in one go including similar tags.

    Find what: <span.*?>(.*?)</span>
    Replace with: $1
    Select "Regular expression".


    Would be nice if you could customize the Subtitle Edit GUI to store such things e.g. to an additional "edit" option/hotkey or as an additional entry into "Fix common errors".

    You can add those lines to the multiple replace in the rules section of subtitle so they get added permanently.

    For me it was simpler to install subtitle Workshop to do this, get rid of tags. I had the same problem a couple of years ago and for me mucking about with scripts and added steps was a waste of time. Horses for courses!
