Another useful Windows text file compare program

I discovered this yesterday, and it's growing on me. http://truehumandesign.se/s_diffinity.php Diffinity supports UTF-8. Not yet quite as well integrated into the Windows Shell as WinMerge , but it beats that on comparing non-Roman scripts such as Devanagari , Biblical Hebrew or modern Urdu . Right ...

Cancel doesn't interrupt Run sub-filter X times

Clicking Cancel while the filter is processing Run sub-filter X times doesn't interrupt that. Try increasing X to 400 and see what happens. You can click Cancel repeatedly and the same dialog pops up, even if you confirm. Cancel should cancel - not wait until a special filter has finished its task. ...

Recent filters list

If you run a TextPipe filter from the Windows Shell Extension , the filter does not get added to the Recent Filters list. Please provide a Tick Box option in general Preferences to allow the user to choose this. If you need to edit a filter just after you've used like this ( for the first time in a ...

Re: Suggestion for new filter 'Add Match Numbers'

Can't you already achieve this with line numbers as a subfilter of a pattern match?
Only if you first make each instance of the pattern start a new line!

Aside: The requirement first arose for numbering unnumbered footnote tags.

My suggestion obviates that necessity.

Useful tip for capture text filters

TextPipe Help already has some essential advice for the capture text filter. Here's a useful tip: Send variable 1 to subfilter is an ideal way to control the input for the capture text filter. Here's an example that I used for processing some USFM files: Comment... | Insert the "origin" or "caller"...

Step 3: Status tab: Add Pause/Resume button

Suggestion: To the right of the Cancel button, add a Pause/Resume button.

Provide the user with an opportunity to examine the logging output at any time while a "long time to process" filter is running.

Best regards,

Release notes missing from TextPipe 10.6 Help

I just installed TextPipe 10.6 and was surprise to observe that the release notes page has been removed! Why? It's also become impossible to find the release notes and version history on the TextPipe pages of the website! You seem to have redesigned the site and lost a lot of important information f...

Unicode character categories are described in several places online. e.g. http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/category/ It would be useful to have a new pattern match method for Unicode Character Categories .

Suggestion for new filter 'Add Match Numbers'

The Add Line Numbers filter is already very useful. In principle, the notion can be generalised to Add Match Numbers for pattern matching. Add Line Numbers is then equivalent to matching the PCRE pattern ^ for the Start of Line and adding the serial numbers just before the match position. I therefor...

Re: Epub/Mobi text preparation tips

TextPipe Pro edition is only really required for mainframe filters.

TextPipe Standard suffices for most users.
