That's why you'd specify to only remove ones that begin a line, as I said

support regular expressions (it'd be just like Microsoft to not include
something so useful for developers), I'm almost certain there's a checkbox
somewhere in there that says, "Match pattern only at beginning of line."
Check it, type in "+ " as your pattern, replace it with "" and...
