      Hi,

      Is it possible/hard to do, and perhaps how, to get NoteTab to do the following :

      I want to get a clip to allow me to ask the portion that should be on every line,
      and then let me enter the first and the last numerical value it should generate, like this :

      I want to fill the current document with the contents below :

      Hello Everybody, this is line 07
      Hello Everybody, this is line 08
      Hello Everybody, this is line 09
      Hello Everybody, this is line 10
      Hello Everybody, this is line 11
      Hello Everybody, this is line 12
      Hello Everybody, this is line 13
      Hello Everybody, this is line 14

      ..... which should be generated after the clip should have asked me :

      " What is the default text for every line ? "
      ... at which I enter :
      "Hello Everybody, this is line "

      ... then ask me...
      " first number to add to line ? "
      ... at which I enter :
      "07"

      ... then ask me...
      " last number to add to line ? "
      ... at which I enter :
      "14"

      .... and so the clip would fill the document with the example lines I posted above ?


      Is this possible to do with NoteTab, and perhaps how ? :)

        ;end of long line

        ;run loop
        :Loop
        ^!If "^%StartNo%" > "^%FinishNo%" End
        ;insert the question, the number, and new line
        ^!InsertText ^%Question% ^%StartNo%^%NL%
        ;increase the StartNo
        ^!Inc %StartNo%
        ^!Goto :Loop
        ;this is line 30 including blank lines

        Notice that there is one really really long line in the middle there ...
        should be 30 lines total.

        Also, you could skip the numbers entirely.

        I did not:
        1. pad small numbers with zeros
        2. delete all contents of current document before doing this text entry or
        3. instead created a new document.

        I hope this gets you going. All things are possible with notetab and clips.
