I said, some time back, and it must have been. The clips I worked on
previously dealt with Find/Replace, not SearchDisk.
So I wouldn't be a complete liar, I re-wrote a clip to work with
SearchDisk. I have 2 versions of the clip. The first version allows
you to load a source file to copy the find data to the clipboard.
After copying, it allows you to load, or, switch to another source, to
copy the replace data. In these clips the mere action of copying the
data to the clipboard causes the clip to proceed to the next step.
The second version, additionally allows you to preselect the options you
think you will need in this session of SearchDisk.
Both data selections are then written to the Note/Tab/Pro.ini so the
data will be available for selection in the SearchDisk dialog, position #1.
I could find no way to circumvent the SearchDisk dialog but, large
blocks of data are much easier insert into SearchDisk, the newly
selected data, find and replace, will always be in its respective
If you like I'll send a direct email with a file attached containing
these clips so you can try them out.
