Re: An Absolute Beginners Question
I am a little confused about what you are trying to do, but here are two
I was trying to say that it seems as though when I leave blank lines
between one clip and the next clip down in my clipbook, the blank lines
appear in my document. So far in my level of understanding, the ^& solution
is the easiest to understand. I am writing a little tutorial on this
because that is one way I have found that helps me remember things better.
When I get it done, I might send it to the list for criticism. ... If I get
brave enough that is.
Thanks for all your kind help.
- Hi Jim,
Behavior often will be different based upon whether or not your clip's line
of code be prefaced with a command or not.
a command starts with ^!
thus one of those insert____ commands makes it ignore blank lines within
- Hi Jim,
>I was trying to say that it seems as though when I leave blank linesYes, if you have a clip that just 'pastes' texts in, blank lines are seen
>between one clip and the next clip down in my clipbook, the blank lines
>appear in my document.
as part of the text and get pasted in the document. If I understand you
right you edit your clips by opening the whole library and want the single
clips separated by more than one bank line? You can kill a clip with the
command "^!Goto end".
Blah blah blah ^?[} blah....
Blah blah ^? blah blah
The blank lines above will still be part of Clip1 but they won't be pasted
into the document. If you open a single Clip item (right click over it in
the clipbook window and choose "Edit Clip") you can see the blank lines
are still there.
Another way would be to comment the lines out by putting a semicolon in the
beginning of each one of them. You need to keep one blank line untouched to
separate the Clips from each other though.
