I have tried the following from ChatGPT but it is not working
$clip = Get-Clipboard
$clip = $clip -replace “rn”, “-”
Set-Clipboard -Value $clip

Could somebody point me in the right direction please

Welcome back to the forum. :wave:t4: … long time no see … :wink:

Before we proceed …
When you post code, sample data, console output or error messages please format it as code using the preformatted text button ( </> ). Simply place your cursor on an empty line, click the button and paste your code.

Thanks in advance

How to format code in <---- Click :point_up_2:t4: :wink:

What’s that?

You know that ChatGPT is not really an experienced developer, don’t you? It is not guaranteed that code genereated by ChatGPT will work.

What would you expect this code to do?

Wow. You are allowed to use complete sentences and be as verbose as you probably would be when we’d actually talk with each other face to face. :thinking: :man_shrugging:t4:

The code works if the copied text is copied as a raw string including the line breaks - not as an array of lines. For example … if you read the content of a text file with

Get-Content -Path .\SampleText.txt -raw

you can use this code to remove the line breaks and replace them with dashes.

So sorry if i did not elaborate.

Thanks for your reply. I have noted all of you points and direction for future reference.
