Spell checking query.
- Suppose I have 50 text and/or .html files. Two of them have spelling
mistakes. Is there any way to find those two and spell check them
other than going to the first file, then the second, then the... ?
In other words what I would like to do is open all 50 and then treat
them as a single block of text. So that the spell checker goes
through them until it finds an error, then goes to the next etc.
until all are done. Without me selecting spell checking one by one by
Can the above be done please and/or is a "script" for this
- Hi John,
You would need to have a Clip built that would scan through all
the open documents and get the file path for each and with it and
a divider insert each file into one, append, or use the Paste
Board. You would then focus that document and go into your spell
check (all done up to that point with a Clip). Instead of the
Clip looping to see when the spelling checker is closed, I'd
build a second Clip to go through looking for the dividers and
getting the path to save to, except I would use a different save
to path, so you would probably just get the file name in the
first Clip above. It is very possible to do, but I don't have the
time right now to build it. I do have a Clip in my DirStuff that
appends all the files in a directory into one. I think it may
even have a divider choice/option to use. You would only need to
add the line to insert the filename. And, you would need the Clip
built to un-compile/decompile it (whatever the term is to split
it back into files) when done. Look for the two Clips that append
files in DirStuff. From NoteTab's PasteBack feature:
I have a number of Clips that work with directories in my
DirStuff. You'll find some that you can modify to do what you
want. Look for ones that use ^$GetFiles instead of the ones with
the older method using ^$GetFileFirst/^$GetFileNext although those
still have good use for some purposes. Try right clicking over the
Library combobox and choose "Open as Document" and then do a Find
for ^$GetFiles. They'll use ^!SetArray.
