Re: Re: [Clip] Clip to save cursor position.
- Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you. It seems that the line in your
first clip that ended with ^$GetExpandedName(^##)$^%nL% was being wrapped & I
didn't know enough about clips to see the error (it 'looked' fine) & that was
stopping the clip from working as intended.
It works very well & will fill the gap nicely ... thanks.
The only drawback is that if (for instance) I am working on a HTML file, I need
to save 2 versions of that file.... a 'publish' version & a 'bookmarked' version
which is much less of a problem than trying to find the last edit position each
time.... thanks again.
