Re: [NTB] NOTETAB INTRO FOR NEWBIES was Request for Help
- Hi Bernadette et al,
Me too. I have a list of 900 odd names all numbered as the first word,
and have just discovered that I can us Control+J to get rid of the line
return without losing the para. But I am halfway though and still cannot
for the life of me make sense of how to write a clip to auotmate a getting
rid of the initial sequential number or fixing the line break without
losing the para breaks.
Still - it's a great program and given enough time I will work it
out. Don't have a clue about programming so I have to learn on an as
Best regards........ Erica Hills, Perth, Western Australia

forget which Clip does it, but you are able to specify the format
such as one of these with X being the number: "X. " "X: " "X, "
A regular expression could be used as well, but sometimes it gets
a bit hosed up.
When using Ctrl+J for Modify | Lines | Join Lines you have to
watch out for lists like...
1. Item 1
2. Item 2
3. Item 3
...because they will be wrapped also which you do not want, at
least most the time...
1. Item 1 2. Item 2 3. Item 3
You need to select portions of the text to wrap/join in those
cases. You might want to try out my eForm'r Library and/or
ReFormat for dealing with formatting text.
