You have to make sure that the two options sort ascending and sort output orally unique lines are checked when you select your text using for example shortcut ctrl-a then your turn back your text effects menu text effects tools. This time you choose short lines to get sensitively as you can see how the line that contains the phrase hello how are you has been removed because they were duplicated okay.

The second method that we can use is actually to use regular expressions. So this is my initial text as you can see we have three duplicate nodes here hello how are you in the first line and in the third line and in the fifth line.
