I need a Windows program that will display a text file and let me select individual lines of that file to move to a new file. So, for example, I can select lines 4-9, 14, 22-24, 46, etc. as I scroll through the existing file, and they will be removed from that file and become lines 1-11, etc. of a new text file.
You can use for example notepad++.
First mark lines clicking on the left field
CudaText editor (free) allow this using bookmarks.
- Don't select lines, but instead place bookmarks on them - click the left-most gutter column to place a bookmark.
- Menu item "Search / Bookmarks / Copy bookmarked lines"
- Add a new file-tab, and call "Paste" from context menu
- Remove original lines, if you need it, using "Search / Bookmarks / Delete bookmarked lines"
