Alternatively, have your friends hold him down, then take a dump in his mouth, make sure your genitals don't touch him though, that's gay.

You fools!

OK say I have this written.

Number 1: atodugfodug
Number 2: tfgdfgdfgdfg

and I want to delete "Number 1" and "Number 2" but not the other text
#7
then you go find number 1 highlight it and delete it

then go find number 2 highlight it and delete it

what else do you want? i mean if there was something like find and replace for that it would take you longer typing in number 1 and 2 then it would just to find and delete them

LMFAO, yeah but

OK, you guys know how itunes works right? In itunes if you want to select multiple songs that aren't next to each other, you hold shift, and click them, and you can delete them without having to do them one at a time, I was simply wondering if there was a function like this for text? There should be if there isn't

first off just to clear things up for anyone, you mean command (or ctrl for PC).

shift would select all the songs between the two songs you picked.

but anyway. I have a mac but try the command trick on word documents that guy above says he knows what hes talking about

EDIT: i guess he didn't know what he was talking about

just hit delete twice. I don't think theres a way otherwise.

either hit an extra key (command) or hit an extra key (delete again)

take your pick they are essentially the same, your hitting 2 keys and some mouse either way (command +a couple clicks + delete, or a click + delete + a click+ delete)

its gonna be the same

Well he's wrong
#14
I thought it was hold down ctrl (maybe that's the mac key) to select multiples and shift is like select a top item, hold shift, select a bottom item, and the whole list will be highlighted.
Geez, as much as I like Macs I could never deal with one

yes your right, he switched shift and ctrl by mistake.

and the command button on macs and the ctrl button on PCs are essentially the exact same thing, macs aren't hard to use at all. PC users just like to create problems that don't really exist

Here's some advice.....
We tried some stuff, it didn't work, tuff titty. Go figure it out elsewhere, or don't. I don't care, just get the **** out of here, and stop wasting our time. You ever thought that maybe there is no good advice, bc there IS NO WAY TO DO IT!
