Re: Environment variable @inputPath and accented letters?

Please try it with also the following:

Change extension to .ligatures@inputExtension

That's the trigger!

It's a feature that I use regularly!

I can readily email you stuff if this doesn't help determine root cause.

Re: Environment variable @inputPath and accented letters?

Hi Simon, TextPipe 11.6 still has an issue with other non-ASCII characters in the @inputPath. Input filename KJV.diatheke.plus.psalm.titles.¶.txt was changed to KJV.diatheke.plus.psalm.titles.�.ligatures.txt where I had the Output Folder as @inputPath\Derived Please review the fix and see if it can ...

Change key dialog has no Cancel button

If you are already licensed user and you inadvertently click the Change key button in Help | About you cannot close the dialog without entering your key. For owners of a valid license there needs to be a Cancel button. i.e. So that you don't have to go through the rigmarole of finding your key again...

New Unicode filters: Convert to/from Unicode character names

It would be of some interest to provide two new Unicode filters:
  • Convert characters to character names
  • Convert character names to characters
Assume UTF-8 as the encoding for both.

Suggested new filter Add line widths

In the Add branch of the Filter library , it could be useful to provide a new filter to Add line widths . Currently, I have to resort to using the Excel™ formula =LEN(B1) to get this type of data. The UI for this filter should include the means to specify Format as under Add line numbers . David

Truncate to width and Force to width ?

Is there any significant difference between the filters Truncate to width and Force to width ?

If not, then remove the one that's deemed superfluous.

If there is a significant difference, then why are the Help pages almost identical ?

Suggestion: Provide Unicode to Perl Escape Codes filter

If you have a lot of non-ASCII text that you want to format as the search items in an external replace list file, it would be very useful to be able to prepare that list using TextPipe as the tool. This would require a new filter called Unicode to Perl Escape Codes . Likewise for the replace column,...

Re: Suggestion for a UI improvement

Further to my earlier suggestion: How about also making the Filter library a detachable side-bar ? i.e. Like the side bar in Xiphos - the free Bible study app from xiphos.org (available for Windows & Linux). Allowing the filter library to detach / attach would provide more real estate for working wi...

Suggestion: Add left/right margin using external file or internal table

Here's an idea to consider: A choice could be made in the filter UI to use either an internal table or an external file. An external file would be (e.g.) tab-delimited, just like a replace file. It would work as follows: Column 1 would contain a series of Restrict to line number specifications. Colu...

Re: Suggestion: Provide filter Remove all diacritics

I was mistaken. UCS-2 was an earlier form that preceded UTF-16.

I was confused by Notepad++ having changed menu options from UTF-16 LE to UCS-2.

It may be because it doesn't fully support the former.

Ah well.

Re: Suggestion: Provide filter Remove all diacritics

See also my recent email (sent yesterday) about grouping the Unicode filters that are UTF-16LE only.

Aside: hasn't the official Unicode terrminology for UTF-16LE been changed to UCS-2 BOM ?

Re: Suggestion: Provide filter Remove all diacritics

Will the Remove diacritics filter[s] handle UTF-8 or is it limited to UTF-16 LE only ? Several Unicode filters can only handle UTF-16 LE encoding. Would it be feasible for each of these filters to detect when any other encoding is piped into it and simply stop with an error message? This would avoid...
