Re: Suggestion: Provide filter Remove all diacritics

It's not that simple, as it depends on Unicode character properties , rather than something you can achieve readily with PCRE. Clearly the first step would be to Normalise to NFD so that the diacritics become separate characters, but there's no simple formula to match " these codepoints are diacriti...

Re: Validating large ~600GB CSV against schema?

What exactly does a schema mean in the context of a CSV file?

Presumably, it's to validate the syntax of each field in the data?

cf. I'm only familiar with using a schema in the context of validating XML files.

Hi Simon,

It would be a useful feature to have while in the Customise Shell Extensions UI
to select a row and click a button for Open selected filter.

Best regards,

Convert Word documents to text filter

Is there any good reason why the filter to Convert Word documents to text leaves the BOM in the UTF-8 text output file?

The help page for this filter does not state that the BOM may need to be removed afterwards!

Best regards,

Input filenames containing non-ANSI characters?

TextPipe replaces each non-ANSI character of the input filename by U+FFFD REPLACEMENT CHARACTER. This is most undesireable, especially for non-Roman scripts. But even for accented ASCII letters it does this, so it's a critical limitation on it's capabilities. Example: Input file: 04 Niveroù Numbers....

Re: Unicode normalize filters?

Hi Simon, Aside: The BabelPad Unicode text editor has a Convert menu Other option to Strip Diacritics from selected text. https://www.dropbox.com/s/2r697lnpxb5oioe/Screenshot%202019-02-18%2008.56.46.png?dl=0 http://www.babelstone.co.uk/Software/BabelPad.html I use BabelPad a lot.

Re: TextPipe 10.7 - Editing Windows Shell Extensions - still not quite right

Hi Simon, It's still very frustrating that this problem is still not fixed . Will it be fixed in TextPipe version 10.8 ? For future consideration, what would it take to be able to group shell extension options into a tree structure ? Filters in different categories could be more easily selected than...

Re: Subtle bug in Convert Numeric HTML/XML Entities to text

A workaround is one thing, but were you able to confirm whether or not my conjecture about data caching was valid?

If so, is there anything that can be done to prevent the bad output that I observed without such a workaround?
