Re: Strange bug in the Replace filter

This bug seems to no longer occur in TextPipe 11.4

NB. I only tried it using the Trial Run area.

Re: Maintaining and sharing TextPipe filters in the world of Git ?

The new JSON based text format for saved TextPipe filters certainly makes it more amenable to sharing them in the world of Git. 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...

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

Has this issue yet had a more detailed investigation?

It was rather alarming when I initially reported it.

Re: Suggestion: Provide filter Remove all diacritics

Is the suggested feature now more feasible with Unicode 12.1 being built into TextPipe v11.x ?

Best regards,

Re: Count duplicate lines filter and non-Roman script

Any update to report on this?

Aside: Is the same collation algorithm used in the Sort filter?

Might it be feasible to enhance both filters by including in the UI a drop-down list control for selecting a writing system specific collation order?

Re: Convert Word documents to text filter

My comment of June 6 last year is also relevant to the use of UTF-8 in the new JSON text format for saved filter files in TextPipe v11.4

Has anything been done to remove the BOM from text files output by the Word documents to text filter?

Re: PCRE POSIX Character Class [[:punct:]] and non-Roman scripts

Was that the update to Unicode 12.1 ?

Now that's in place with TextPipe v11.x might the features suggested in this thread be now more feasible?
