Re: Scanning a line for a code - then using that code to update the related line.

btw. TextPipe Standard would suffice for this task.

TextPipe Pro is only really an advantage if you're processing data from mainframe computers.

I've been using TextPipe Standard for almost 20 years.
It's the best thing since sliced bread.

Re: Support case conversion for all Unicode bicameral scripts

Seems a good idea anyway.

More documents are stored as UTF-8 than UTF-16 by a long shot.

Suggestion: Support Markdown in TextPipe Comment filters

Here's a suggestion to consider for making Comment filters even more versatile. Add support for Common MarkDown in Comment filters. See https://commonmark.org/ Provide an UI option to switch between Edit & Preview while editing a Comment filter. NB. Some restrictions may be required as regards the s...

Support case conversion for all Unicode bicameral scripts

Currently the Case conversion filters are only ANSI aware.

These filters are in need of a radical improvement to provide case conversion for all Unicode bicameral scripts.

A thorough overhaul is long overdue for this early feature of TextPipe.

Remove multiple whitespace logs 0 whitespaces removed when a tab is replaced by a space

The filter Remove multiple whitespace also converts tabs to spaces.

When this is all that occurs, the filter log is misleading when it has (eg):

Code: Select all

Info	2021-03-06 21:17:09	  0 multiple whitespaces removed
This gives the false impression that nothing has been changed!

A corner case when converting bicameral text to Sentence case...

Hi Simon, I just observed a strange result after converting parts of a text file to sentence case . To illustrate it: 1st Corinthians, an introduction becomes 1St Corinthians, an introduction IMHO, the s in 1st ought not to be capitalised. Please review the definition of sentence case when a sentenc...

Re: TextPipe Windows Shell extensions have disappeared from my Explorer Context Menu

Hi Simon,

Still awaiting your response!

Is there any further useful information that I could provide?
e.g. From the Windows registry?

Adding a header to a single file output (join all input files together) ?

Hi Simon, Currently, there seems to be no straightforward means to add a suitable header to a single file output (join all input files together). We have two Add header filters: Add file header Add restriction header but neither of these does what's required on its own! The difficulty is accentuated...

TextPipe Windows Shell extensions have disappeared from my Explorer Context Menu

I don't know when I last used one, but I tried just now to apply a Context Menu option to a text file, only to discover that the whole TextPipe Windows Shell Extensions menu was no longer listed when I did a right click. Any suggestions as to what might have happened? The whole table is still availa...

Re: Suggestion: Provide Unicode to Perl Escape Codes filter

As I use PCRE Perl Escape codes in a lot of my replace lists for TextPipe, I think I know what I'm talking about. 8) Also, btw, most ASCII characters never need to be converted to Perl Escape Codes for use in replace lists. Those should also be excluded if you do implement the suggestion as an inter...

Re: Suggestion: Provide Unicode to Perl Escape Codes filter

Dear Simon, The outputs are not proper Perl Escape codes that would be recognised by a PCRE replace filter. For codepoints beyond \xFF the should be {braces} around each character code! e.g. ðñòóôõö÷øùúûüýþÿ ĀāĂ㥹ĆćĈĉĊċČčĎď 𐀀𐀁𐀂𐀃𐀄𐀅𐀆𐀇𐀈𐀉𐀊𐀋𐀌𐀍𐀎𐀏 should convert to \xF0\xF1\xF2\xF3\xF4\xF5\xF6\xF7\xF8\xF9...
