Character cAsE filters and the Turkish alphabet

The help pages for the various Character cAsE filters states the following: This filter expects UTF-8 data and will handle foreign character sets. This is not quite true, in that there are exceptions in some bicameral alphabets such as Turkish and Northern Azeri . Both these alphabets include the fo...

Re: Replace filter: Custom-delimited record

OK - there is this obscure description in the Help page for Find & replace . Customer-delimited record - the find field is automatically set to a pattern that matches records with up to 40 fields - from $1$ to $40$. The delimiter is specified using the first character of the search field. The text q...

Re: Improvements to recent files list...

Related to this, the Preferences dialog includes a numerical spinner to set File history entries.

This is currently set to 5 as default, even though 10 filters are in the MRU.

Moreover, setting it to say 20 doesn't have any effect. Next time you look, it's reverted to 5 again.

Re: Replace filter: Custom-delimited record

I've just inserted a Replace filter and then used the Find type drop-down to select Custom-delimited record . There is still no UI control to defined the custom delimiter character[s]. The same part of the UI pane just has Text qualifier as a label, but no corresponding UI control to specify anythin...

One factor still makes this less amenable for external editing changes, and that's the fact that patternType is just a numerical value. Likewise for the replaceType in some...
