Re: MS Word-style pattern works in Word 2016, not TextPipe v9.9.

TextPipe is designed to process Unicode text files - not MS Word documents. The search feature in MS Word has many pattern types that are foreign to TextPipe. It's not clear why you assumed otherwise. David David: I find your responsive offensive. You are making an entirely unwarranted and incorrec...

Re: MS Word-style pattern works in Word 2016, not TextPipe v9.9.

MS Word-style pattern works in Word 2016, not TextPipe v9.9.

\<html\>\<head\>\<title\>*\<CENTER\>\<B\>\<FONT SIZE=+1\>

Why not?

Max file size for Unicode-ASCII conversion

I have a 200GB raw data file (hard drive contents) and I want to convert from Unicode to ASCII.

Extracting text between BeginPoint and EndPoint

I have hit a stone wall in trying to accomplish the following in TextPipe. I want to extract everything from "<td valign=top><B>Any Name</B>" through at least the first instance of "<BR><I>(Plaintiff)</I></td>".
