Selecting any non latin characters in Notepad++

We can select any non latin characters in Notepad++ by using regular expression.

Type this [^\x00-\x80]+ in “Find” column and switch to “Regular expression” mode.

For example if you want to remove all characters except latin characters, go to Find and Replace and put that regex, leave “Replace with” column blank, then hit “Replace All”.
