Re: Restrict to lines filter - confusing terminology in help

Consider for illustration purposes an input file containing only 10 lines. AFAICT, TextPipe field specifications UI numbers these lines as follows: Start End 1 -10 2 -9 3 -8 4 -7 5 -6 6 -5 7 -4 8 -3 9 -2 10 -1 OK ? Which lines (if any) would be processed under Restrict to lines : 6 .. -6 as the data...

Re: Restrict to lines filter - confusing terminology in help

One of my very old filters (made with the original UI) contains the subfilter that now displays as: Restrict to lines: 2 .. -1 As my original intention was merely to exclude line 1 , it's hard to understand why TextPipe v10.0 converted the sub-filter data to show the end line : -1 As I read the Help...

Editing Windows Shell Extensions?

Hey Simon,

It's now TextPipe v10.6.2 and Windows Shell Extensions still cannot be edited like they used to in TextPipe v9.9.x.

When are you going to fix this feature?

Best regards,

David

Filter list ribbon

Hi Simon, Unlike the context menu, the Filter list ribbon lacks options for Move up/down ( at same level ). Being so accustomed to using the context menu for most things, I rarely use this ribbon, but having noticed these omissions last week, I thought it would be useful to bring to your attention. ...

Replace filter: Custom-delimited record

The UI for the Replace filter : Custom-delimited record has no means to define the custom delimiter! To the right of the Find type selector, the UI displays "(from search field)Delimiter: Text qualifier:" but there's no edit field to set either of these. This is a poor show compared to the Restrict ...

Re: Unicode normalize filters?

Hi Simon,

If it's likely that it will take a lot of time and effort to fix the bugs in the Unicode Normalize filters, it would be preferable to disable them in the next release and restore them only after they have been properly fixed and thoroughly tested.

Best regards,

David

Re: Unicode normalize filters?

There's something critically wrong in the Normalize to NFD filter. It's far worse than reported in my previous comments. Here are some Latin letters with various diacritics: ÀÁÂÃÄÅÇÈÉËÌÍÎÏÑÒÓÔÖØÙÚÛÜÝ àáâãäåçèéêëìíîïñòóôõöøùúûüýÿ ĀāĂ㥹ĆćĈĉĊċČčĎďĐđĒēĔĕĖėĘęĚěĜĝĞğ ĠġĢģĤĥĦħĨĩĪīĬĭĮįİĴĵĶķĹĺĻļĽľĿ With the ...

Re: Feedback requested: Workspace feature

I tend to have at most three or four filters open at any one time. I'd usually only be developing one filter at a time. The others would be open either because they perform ancillary tasks (pre/post-processing) or if they contained subfilters I wanted to copy. Several text editors include options fo...

Re: TextPipe installation setup issues

Hi Simon,

Were you looking in the wrong place?

The taskbar shortcut clearly disappears during the Uninstall process that happens automatically as part one of the the setup for TextPipe x32.

The Install process does not add it back again!

Best regards,

David
