Description:
I want to inquire how to replace the User-Defined lines of A text from B text. For example:
In A text, I has Lines No. 2, 7, 12, 17, ..., 3342 [ i.e. 2+N*5 (N=0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ..., 668) ]

In B text, I has Lines No. 2, 6, 10, 14, ..., 2930 [ i.e. 2+N*4 (N=0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ..., 732) ]
I would like to replace Lines No. 2, 7, 12, 17, ..., 3342 in A text by Lines No. 2, 6, 10, 14, ..., 2930 in B text.
Can this software's command complete this task?
