Check for updates give false positive

Having already installed TextPipe v10.8 when I click in Help | Check web for TextPipe updates , I am informed wrongly that A TextPipe Standard 10.8 update is available . This is a false positive , given that there has been no further minor update since v10.8 was announced earlier this week. I think ...

TextPipe v10.8 Add Restriction Header/Footer

In TextPipe v10.8 , Add Restriction Header/Footer works OK, but the actual filters are still entitled Section Header/Footer. Moreover, the Help pages for these two filters are still entitled Header/Footer without the word Restriction . It would be sensible to sort out these inconsistencies. NB. When...

Copy the selected line[s] to clipboard ?

Please would you enhance the first context menu option for the message lines in the status tab pane. As it's evident that multiple lines can be selected, it would make sense to change the first option to Copy the selected line[s] to clipboard . Currently, only one line of those selected gets copied....

Re: PCRE POSIX Character Class [[:punct:]] and non-Roman scripts

Hi Simon, Any progress to report? Further suggestion: Wouldn't it be cool if every Unicode Script could have a named POSIX expression based on the ISO 15924 code? Surely, I cannot be the first person to suggest such a notion? Thus [[:Arab:]] would cover all the UTF-8 codepoints in the Arabic script....

Re: Convert Word documents to text filter

In the early days of Unicode, the naming convention was - UTF-8 without BOM - UTF-8 The latter had the BOM implicitly . More recently, the naming convention has changed to - UTF-8 - UTF-8 with BOM The former now has no BOM implicitly . The convention change was recognized and implemented by the Note...

Re: Input filenames containing non-ANSI characters?

There's nothing special about my filter. It only needs an input filename with (eg) accented letters to test it. Any filter would do, even a null filter where the only change is to the output file extension. And I'm sure that you can easily rename any suitable input file so that in Windows the filena...

Re: Unicode 11.0

Am I right in thinking that this improvement didn't make it to TextPipe v10.8 ?

Textpipe log file does not support UTF-8 encoding

This can be divided into two separate observations: 1. Comment filters containing non-ANSI characters are logged as ???? 2. Replace filters containing UTF-8 search text are not rendered as UTF-8. The first example is Fix truncations & expansions of Ушод: This gets logged as Fix truncations & expansi...

Re: Check for updates - false positive again

The same happens with TextPipe 10.7.2 - is this due to a software bug?

Re: Suggestion: Provide filter Remove all diacritics

Please do - if it's not too difficult.

It could then be updated to work with Unicode 12.1 when you have the relevant libraries in place.

Best regards,
