Select all in all open files
- I have 730 files that I need to use NoteTab's nifty "join lines"
feature on. Is there a way to select all the text in all the files and
run the "join lines" all at once?

- Hi Don,
Short of a Clip you could use the Replace tool to do it with. I
suggest you make a copy of the files first by going into Windows
Explorer (or My Computer) to the file location assuming they are
all in one folder. Do a Ctrl+A over the files to select them and
then a Ctrl+C to copy, then Ctrl+V to paste into another folder,
or just drag/drop the whole folder while holding the Ctrl key
down so that your mouse cursor changes to a plus sign letting you
know you are making a copy.
Also assuming that you have a blank line in between your
paragraphs I'd open the files and click on the Replace tool.
Check the box to do All Documents.
Find ^p^p and Replace with <>~~<^p^p>~~<>
or some other unique text. After that do a:
Find ^p and Replace with a space (" " w/o the quotes)
Find <>~~< >~~<> and Replace with ^p^p
If NoteTab Pro complains about lines/paragraphs being too long,
use NoteTab Light (www.notetab.com/download.htm) or use Search
Disk instead, but definitely make sure you have a backup of the

Thanks! that worked like a charm. I should have thought of that.
Actually that was better than the "join lines" feature anyway, because
I used one ^p instead of two in the last step, thus getting rid of the
extra blank lines in the files. That did exactly what I needed.
NoteTab is great.

- Jody, and, or Eric,
Earlier on the clips list a short discussion evolved about using a clip
to gather data for the SearchDisk dialog. It's obvious copy&paste won't
work unless you're using a clipboard utility that allows multiple saves.
I decided to try altering NotePro.ini with no success, at least in the
attempt to alter the SearchFiles section. I tried to do ^!SaveValue's
in several different ways.
I could save the desired values to an entirely new section I created in
NotePro.ini but no matter what I tried I couldn't alter the SearchFiles
section of the .ini unless I edited it manually and rebooted NotePro or
used SearchDisk dialog.
My question, is the SearchFiles section of NotePro.ini protected in some
way to prevent access to it other that a manual edit or the SearchDisk
I already have clips that edit, or manipulate the Find and Replace data
in NotePro.ini with no trouble. Is there a way to change the
SearchFiles data with a clip?
- Hi Harvey,
This didn't cause me any problem. Did you try the little clip I had
posted? To avoid some potential problems, add ^!ProgIniSave to the
top of it.
Probably better to discuss this further on the clips list.
