How to bulk remove minutes from text.

Copper Contributor


I am trying to bulk remove timings ( i.e., 6:21 etc) from captions from a recording, example of a small section is copy pasted below. There about 20 pages of it! The times (shown on the left) are on the same row so I cannot separate them out.  At the moment I am deleting them one by one which is taking forever. Does anyone have any ideas how to bulk delete them?




  • commercial offices, industrial warehouses, hospitals, okay.


  • Retail, leisure, all predominantly, if not totally using frame construction.
