Honestly, I use gedit for doing this sort of thing. of you just use the
'Find/Replace' tool, you can enter in text that will take up multiple
lines (or highlight the text you want replaced, then hit the
'Find/Replace' button...) I admit it's a little cumbersome for large
text blocks like you presented in your example, but I use it for small
test-replaces now and again in .csv files, and in python scripts. (Just
enter newlines as a \n, and tabs as \t)
Hope that helps!
