Re: Paring Text Statistics
- If you're new to NoteTab you'll want to learn how to use clips
first. Then once you know how to create and use them the following
clip commands will get you started in what you want to do:
The first clip command line strips all html tags in the active
document and changes the document file extension to .txt so the
original is not modified. The second clip command merely opens the
same text stats box you saw before.
; Strip html tags
^!Menu Modify/Strip HTML Tags/Remove All Tags
; View stats
^!Menu Tools/Text Statistics

>How do I go about learning clips? Please help me get started.There was a mailing list for newcomers but the listowner discontinued it
due to a lack of traffic and an increase in spam to the site. The
listowner of these NoteTab sites is Jody Adair and he has placed a searies
of helpful files on his website including a clip tutorial and a couple of
outline files. One of the outline files is a tutorial itself on NoteTab
Clip programing and the other is an email archive from the discontinued
list of all of the posts to that list during its short life.
You can download the tutorial in a file called cliptut.zip from:
You can use the tutorial files in this archive to learn clips. You can
also refer to the help files that Eric Fookes (The NoteTab Author) created.
There are two. The first one is the main help file helps you with basic
NoteTab functions and features. You can access this file by going to the
menu bar and selecting Help/Help Topics. The second help file helps you
learn clip programming. To access it go to the menu bar and select
Help/Help on clip programing. The information is in a logical outline
format and in a alphabetical index for looking up commands.
The biggest thing is to try things out. Copy documents and paste the
information to a new document and then create clips and run them on the
test doc and see what happens. Experiment and play around with things and
have fun. You will find you will learn more that way.
