Sorry, the explanation, accompanied the first posting yesterday:
If you've ever wanted to use a saved search interactively
from the Replace Dialog this clip is for you.
It transfers a Find or Replace command from a clip or other
file into the Replace dialog. (Note that it will only work
on a clip document if launched from the Clipbar).
Place the cursor anywhere on a line containing a clip Find
or Replace command, then launch this clip.
This clip requires the latest release of 4.91 (which allows
dialog options to be changed with "+" or "-" keystrokes) and
also a small utility for turning off Capslock. The utility
is available here:
On my hardware, the ^!Keyboard commands are reliable only
with the "^!Delay 1" commands included. YMMV.
Keep in mind that variables should not be used in Search or
Replace texts executed from the Replace Dialog. For
convenience, if the Replace text consists of "^%Empty%" it
is replaced with nothingness.
Once the dialog is loaded, you are prompted to switch to the
target document. You can and should do this without closing
the Replace dialog.
Let me know if you find any problems, I've been using it
awhile now so it should be pretty clean. I find it useful,
so hopefully others will too.
2nd posting with minor fixes available here:
- Sheri forgive me, but I'm like Don, a little dense here... For even after reading your intro text several times, I can not understand the basic purpose of your clip..
Plus I have to admit that I ended up way out in left field when I saw the link to the capslock program.
So let me ask Don's question a different way..
What is it about Notetab's basic find and replace tool that you are trying to improve upon?
All in the spirit of learning here...

Hope you are starting to get the picture about the purpose of my clip

What I do or do not have to re-type, re-debug, etc.
What I like about the Replace Dialog is its ability to do interactive
selective replacements (Find Next/Replace), and also that you can get
behind it and edit or copy from the document if you notice something
that needs changing. For some things it doesn't pay to have to
create a stand-alone clip.
PS, Notetab doesn't provide a way to turn Capslock off, but its ^!
Keyboard output is affected if Capslock happens to be on. That's the
reason for the using the utility to turn it off.
