Re: [Clip] how do I get current path of focused notetab document?
- Thanks Jody and others for the excellent info. I cannot find this anywhere
in the clip help files. You might consider adding it for future releases as
it is helpful information. I have looked all over the place (search won't
search for these things).
If you need an html fix visit
in easy tutorials with live help and forums
to fix your problems

explaining "^*" "^**" "^#" "^##". However, he did not go into how to use the
code in functions. (You know how the obvious is not obvious to what you use all
the time. :) I'll post over on the Next-Release list, because we cannot search
for the code itself. That might be the .chm itself though.
It is also in ClipClass.otl Lesson One. :)

is now in ClipCode.chm. All the links/bookmarks you see for Clip
stuff actually open the ClipCode file. Except, for wouldn't you
know it - Clip Basics. You just had to make me go figure, eh? :-)
If you type in Clip Basics in the Search tab two items are
listed. Both of them have the link to Clip Basics, but it is
where you say it is; in NoteTab's regular Help file.
There's a line that mentions ^** ^## in Parsing and evaluation
sequence FWIW, but one would not readily figure out what
functions use it or after ^! like: ^!"^##" nite and thanks!

Try my version of the Clip Help in our Yahoo files area:
Also my Clipcode Syntax clip writing aid:
For the clipcode syntax, type "doc" without the quotes (in your document or clip edit)
and run the syntax clip (from the clipbar or quick list Clip Assistant). All the document
variable doc codes are presented as well as every command and function that includes the
