      Works exactly as advertised. Great.

      Now I have a question. The second line is exactly the same as the first clip.
      ^!Replace "{^.*}\t[0-9]+\.[0-9]+$" >> "\1" AIWRS
      Does this mean to replace the order of the words in the list with the ones used most, the words used second most, etc. and that is why the first [0-9]? IF so what does {^.*} mean or I guess what action is perfomed by this. Then we have \t . what does this do for us? That is followed by the first [0-9]. What does the +\. do? then we have the second [0-9]+S Altogether at this point we have this equation.
      ^!Replace "{^.*}\t[0-9]+\.[0-9]+$"
      With the part after "Replace space" enclosed in quotation marks. This followed with >> "\1" AIWRS . Would you explain how this complete clip works in detail? Or is this too rudimentary? I have been pouring over the clip help for several weeks and so far it makes little or no sense to me. How did you know to use "Replace" instead of "List" as in "list the following words in this order etc."? Or why not "Get" the words listed most often in numerical order, etc.? I would like to see a beginners clip class in which we began with writing some simple clips and branch off into the student writing a few simple clips and then advance to the next level with using several different commands, gradually increasing in difficult with an instructor to catch our mistakes and show us why we made those errors.

      I see many clips with multiple lines beginning ^!Set. What are we setting in those lines. Why use Set? If this is too basic to be answered here that is OK. I understand I am just trying to learn the ABC's and asking a Doctor of English to teach me the ABC's. :-) After all you cannot build a word until you know the ABC's and you cannot make a sentence until you have a vocabulary of words and neither can I write much of a clip until I understand what each symbol means and what it does and then build a vocabulary of clip parts and actions. Does this make any sense at all?

      Hi Ed,

      This clip combines with John's clip and it does the whole thing. It runs
      text statistics on the current open document. It copies the advanced page
      to the clipboard and then pastes it to a new document. It then runs John's
      replace clip and deletes the percent column. It then sets the tab size to
      35 and replaces the tabs with spaces. And finally, it restores the tab
      size to the default setting.

      You can modify it to suit your tastes.
