Description:
Thank you very much for script 1161 and 1160. I've been trying to modify them using search pattern [^\(\)]+(\(|$) to replace text outside brackets with text lines from another file. I want to keep the format of the input file but the output file loses all formatting.
Input Sample:
Original Text file: (Need to keep same format)

(text inside)
(more text inside)
Original Text Outside 1 (text inside again)
(more text inside) Original Text Outside 2
Original Text Outside 3
(etc.)

Replacement Text file:

Replace Text Outside 1
Replace Text Outside 2
Replace Text Outside 3
etc.
Output Sample:
Output: (need to keep same format as original)

(text inside)
(more text inside)
Replace Text Outside 1 (text inside again)
(more text inside) Replace Text Outside 2
Replace Text Outside 3
(etc.)
