So, in my document, I have many code blocks like the one below

class App extendsReact.Component{
  state ={


There are multiple such code blocks in my article (they are essentially Markdown javascript syntax).

I want to find replace (or remove) such code blocks in my article.

Thus, I want to simply delete such code blocks using Find/Replace.

  • I'm not completely sure I understand your question. It might be helpful to try and word it differently. What are you trying to accomplish exactly? – Ariane Jan 26 at 3:23

    Are the three backticks and the word javascript part of the block to remove? Could you edi tyour question and add expected result? I guess you want to remove blocks between pair of three backticks, am I right? – Toto Jan 26 at 10:57
  • Ctrl+H
  • Find what: ```javascript.+?```
  • Replace with: LEAVE EMPTY
  • CHECK Wrap around
  • CHECK Regular expression
  • CHECK . matches newline
  • Replace all
