Re: How to replace every 5th tab?

As always thanks for answering this! I've got another question but I'll post it in a new thread. It's probably easy too... but I just can't figure some of this out. The help files are good... but is there a more in depth manual somewhere that would teach me more of the stuff you know? Thanks again. ed

Re: Get keywords from text file

Hello, This thread was great, and just what I needed! The last download and code change with the 'period' doesn't work for me. It seems to work just like the previous code and acts as if the period isn't even there. Not sure why cause I know nothing about javascript, but thought I'd mention. Thanks ...

Thanks again for the response. I can't seem to wrap my mind around what you're saying... as I can't figure out how textpipe will alphabetize the words in a line. Alphabetize lines, yes... but the words in a single line? I feel dense... and all without being a student too. lol Thanks again if you're ...

Thank you for your response.

I know it may seem like a strange request... but it would take too long for me to explain why I'd like it done.

That said... any chance that I might be able to accomplish this with textpipe?

Thanks again,

I'm guessing even Textpipe cannot do this.

For example: a new business adventure a cat chases mice I like sandwiches the dog eats grass In the above example, lines 2 and 3 ...
