Re: [Clip] Some Notetab suggestions
- Hi David,
I just tried your method and it worked really great for me. It took me a
while to figure out and understand what I needed to do. It is really great,
almost like magic to me! (learned something) Thanks.
BTW FWIW before I achieved understanding of your concept, I made a test auto
replace library. I placed your clip
;clip begins on next line
^!If ^$IsBlank(^$GetWord$)$ = 0 skip
;---<end of clip<<
into my auto replace library. And, what I then observed is that your clip
works like a normal auto replace AND your clip also accomplishes the same
end result as your described method of use in a normal library, a library
that is not an auto replace library.
IOW, in an auto replace library, your clip accomplishes the best of both
worlds: It can accomplish a normal auto replace AND it can also accomplish
the request from the java programmer.
As method, In the auto replace library, however, I merely placed cursor next
to (preceding) a word. then I typed <t then I struck the spacebar and it
wrapped the word, making the wrapped word as follows
