[Clip] Clip: Tabs to Spaces

smart enough to know to space your columns evenly when tabs are
used. NoteTab Pro makes it easy to convert Tabs to Spaces (or it
can use spaces by option for the tab instead of a real tab). See
Help on the different settings. I suppose one pays extra for
Pro to get the different tab settings and other features that
Standard does not have. :-)
> what I do not understand thou why is it just one line.I think you had two tabs between words on that line if my memory
serves me correctly. That complicates things more.
> the clip would handyThe Clip below checks for more than one tab between words. I did
not test to see what would happen if the document contained a
different tab setting than what your global tab is set for. I am
only guessing, but I believe the Clip will always use that
setting. There is a comment in the Clip about a literal tab.
Check it to see if it gets converted to spaces in the mail and if
so, select between the quotes and hit your tab key.
You can pre-select some text, but it must be from the beginning
of the first line to the end of the last line selected. If no
text is selected, the whole document is converted. You can have
Word Wrap on or off. The cursor will return to its original
position, except it you select text leaving the cursor at the
end of the selection. Then, it will be placed at the start of
the selection after the conversion.
