remember it, there is a limit of twenty (20) items on each or most of these
drop-down lists. When you insert another entry the twenty-first one is
Suggestion to Eric:
One of my other programs has such drop-down lists also. When you
right-click on the drop-down button on this program, a menu appears with
the options "Clear History" and "Delete This Entry". I think that
something like this would be helpful for NoteTab as well don't you?
My problem with writing such a clip is that you must not only change the
SearcListCount, but you must renumber the items below it so that you keep
(_1, _2, _3, etc) and keep them in order. And you cannot delete them all -
you must have at least one if you want to delete them down to the minimum
size. It makes writing the clip fairly complex.
>Hi Lee,(further ideas for you?) So, Here's the dialog portion taken from a larger clip entitled "load replace dialog" that clip written by Sheri Pierce and the clip was formerly shared on this email list.

auto Loads both ThisWord and ThatWord into the replace dialog.
I inserted the goto end line because alt + x turned on regex and also I didn't know what the very last keyboard line does
^!IfAppOpen "Find and Replace" Next Else Skip_-1
^!FocusApp "Find and Replace"

>^!Keyboard Alt+XHi Alan,
Eric added the plus and minus key actions to each checkbox field so that it would be possible to set then with a clip. Otherwise, all you can do is toggle. So, the above snippet activates the Regexp checkbox, then turns it off.
End result, its turned off regardless whether it was on or off when the dialog opened.
