Re: Check for updates - false positive again

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

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

That's good news!

I await TextPipe 10.8 with bated breath. :)

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,

Save Session / Load Session ?

Notepad++ has file options for editing Sessions management . Likewise, some browser extensions also provide Sessions management . e.g. Tab Session Manager for Firefox. It would be cool to extend this feature to manage TextPipe sessions. Also to have a preferences option simply to re-open all the [s...

Re: Some external replace list files no longer work when the search type is Perl

It may well be an issue.

If I had to change one replace list file, I may encounter others that also require a similar tweak.

Re: Filter request: Convert Word documents to RTF

A further useful suggested filter could take us on to the next step. RTF files as saved from Microsoft Word are rather bulky and somewhat cluttered. Nothing of significance is lost if one uses Wordpad to open such an RTF file and resave it in RTF format. However, the saved RTF files from Wordpad are...

Filter request: Convert Word documents to RTF

Seeing as TextPipe already has a filter to Convert Word documents to text , it should be relatively easy to add a further similar filter to Convert Word documents to RTF . Given that RTF files are stored in plain vanilla text , this would provide a means for some customers like me to develop further...

Re: Suggestion: Provide filter Remove all diacritics

Interesting site. It needs to be very carefully thought out with much attention to detail. - Not just combining class above but all the various combining classes listed in https://www.compart.com/en/unicode/combining - And we'd need to consider some of the modifier letters & modifier symbols that al...

Re: Convert Word documents to text filter

At the usual place for a BOM - the start of the file.

Aside: I don't regard U+FEFF ZERO WIDTH NO-BREAK SPACE [BOM, ZWNBSP] : BOM, ZWNBSP at any other location as a BOM.
In other locations, it functions as a ZWNBSP, which was not part of my report.

Best regards,

Re: Input filenames containing non-ANSI characters?

Given the date I wrote the above, it's almost certainly 10.7.2
