Re: Word frequency list

To what extent is the Text to word list filter UTF-8 aware?

The help page does not even indicate whether it's limited to ANSI or ASCII letters.

Re: Word frequency list

Help for the Text to word list filter states: This filter takes all the incoming words and outputs them one per line, with a DOS line feed between them. This can be used to generate word lists for Indexes, encryption programs etc. Hyphenated words are recognised as single words, provided that they a...

UTF-8 sort filter order

In the Sort filter, selecting UTF-8 sort (case-sensitive) , it makes no difference whether or or not you tick Descending order . Ascending sort doesn't work! It gives the output in Descending order. Ascending sort UTF-8 sort (case sensitive), start column 8, length 80 Descending sort UTF-8 sort (cas...

Sorting on a tab-delimited field ?

Currently the Sort filter positional criteria can only be adjusted by specifying the start column and length . It would be a useful enhancement to be able to sort lines in a tab-delimited text file based on a specified field (& number of fields). i.e. Ignoring the earlier fields for the purpose of s...

Unicode case mappings

Refer to http://userguide.icu-project.org/transforms/casemappings To extend TextPipe case conversion filters to cover all possible Unicode case mappings would be a desirable goal. One thing that might hinder this is the assumption that the case mappings are those for the language in the current regi...

Filename partially obscured in the UI for the Replace list filter

In TextPipe 10.2.7 I have recently observed that when I click the folder icon in the UI for the Replace list filter, the filename presented in the popup dialog is partially obscured at the left of the filename field. e.g. Suppose the existing path\filename is X:\preprocessing fixes.tab The filename ...

Re: Using a captured variable in the filenames of a split files filter?

Capture text to a variable often requires the use of Restrict to each line in turn.

Would this cause any problems for the Split files filter?

Using a captured variable in the filenames of a split files filter?

Help for the Split files filter indicates that the split filenames can make use of @macro
You can insert macros by preceding their name with @
Is it also feasible to make use of a captured variable in the split filename specifier?

Filter options UI legend "Log errors to file after X errors"

In TextPipe version 10.3, this Filter options UI legend was changed to "Log errors to file after X errors".

The word "errors" is misleading, because not all logged events are errors.

It would be better to use the word "events". i.e. "Log events to file after X events"

Best regards,

Re: After converting to PDF, can textpipe hlighlight all the results based on search pattern

TextPipe has a filter to Convert PDF to text.

It has no filter to Convert text to PDF.

The premise of your question is mistaken.

Re: Looking for TextPipe Filter

No filter called by that name is installed when TextPipe is installed.

It must be a bespoke filter developed by your predecessor.

Word to RTF and RTF to Unicode text

The existing filter Word to text uses the installed Microsoft Word program to convert the contents of .doc or .docx files to ordinary text output. In doing so it strips diacritics, etc, because the output is ANSI. MS Word can save as other formats such as Rich Text Format . It would be a very useful...
