Is there a function to select text between two specified line numbers:

for example, if the file has 100 lines and I want to select the text between and including lines 25-50 using a keyboard shortcut.

How can this be done, or if lines are bookmarked, can the text be selected between the two bookmarks.

Many thanks for advice

You could do that with a script. You could base it on a recoded script.

To open prompt run:

strLines = pn.InputBox("Select script", "Type in line numbers to be selected")

To select a range of text use:


Where sct is:

sct = scintilla.Scintilla(pn.CurrentDoc())

Would be nice to have such functionality built-in. If pn ever gets hex edit support, a generic select range dialog would be great (similar to what HxD has but also for text)
