Problem with filter

Postby dynalt » Sun Jul 05, 2015 11:21 am

Objective:
From data on clipboard, extract and gather:
{Q: ssdsdfsadf }
{Note: ssdsdfsadf }
{Todo: ssdsdfsadf }

Output is supposed to go to clipboard so I can paste the collected lines into one place. Result is empty.

So far I haven't created a single filter set that works the way it seems it should. It is frustrating.

Running on Windows 7

Results:

| TextPipe uses 'filters' to perform changes to each file. This 'filter list' is a sequence of changes, like 3 different search and replace operations.
|
| You can add filters from the Filter menu above - Convert, Add, Remove, Unicode, Replace, Special, Maps, Email, Restrict.
|
| For:
| * Search/replace - look in the Replace Menu
| * Unix/DOS/Mainframe End-of-line conversion - look in the Convert Menu
| * Extract email addresses - look in the Email Menu
| * Remove HTML codes - look in the Remove Menu
| * Join (merge) files together - look in the Special Menu
| * Split files apart - look in the Special Menu
| * Join files and then sort them - add a Special Menu\Merge filter followed by a Special Menu\Sort filter
|
| Just click the menu item to add the filter to the list.
|
| You'll find many examples just by clicking File\Open, or you can use File\Search to locate a filter.
|
| You can also ask questions in the TextPipe Discussion Forums -

For some reason you try to extract 3 times in a row. Is that right? Thus the next filter works with the extraction result of the previous one.
To extract 3 variants at once you've got to place them inside one formula.

Thanks, that is one more step toward understanding the model.

I don't yet have a handle on filters, sub filters, multiple passes through the file(s)etc.

Am I missing documentation?

Can I find samples somewhere?

There are 100+ sample files, and tutorials in the Help menu.

There is only ever one pass through the file.

Subfilters 'select' a chunk of text and isolate it for processing - the result of the subfiltered text then returns to the main stream.

Does that make sense?
