TextBatchConv FAQ
Why Chinese is not well converted?
I use an internal function of Xojo. Wait for a update by Real Software and maybe it will work better.
Which file type can it convert?
It can convert ".txt;.html;.htm;.xml". Or you can set in the preferences to accept any type.
Why sort Find/Replace list?
It's sorted from the longest words (searched first) to the shortest words (searched last). Because if it find and replace "fa" by "do", it will never replace "father" by "mother" as "father" has became "dother". Then it has to find replace "father" by "mother" before "fa" by "do".
How to Find/Replace EndOfLine and/or Tab?
As you can't enter EndOfLine or Tab in the list, enter the string "#¬#" which will be seen as a EndOfLine, and enter "#—#" which will be seen as a Tab. In the exemple below, the comma followed by a LineEnding will be replace by a simple LineEnding, and the Tab will be replaced by "---------------".
Why words I want to find and replace are not, even if I see them in the text?
Try to configure the source enconding in UTF16 (it could be the high octet seen as a invisible character).
Where are older versions? How to know which version of Xojo built the application?
Click Old Versions which run on previous system. Go on the Help menu to display a dialog box with the version of Xojo which built the application (sometimes I re-build application with last Xojo version without changed the application version).
Where is Email Contact?
You can find it in the About window of the program, you can also click on the bird on the Home web page. I always aswer, then if I didn't answer you, it's because your email was considered as spam, please try again with the name of my program in the subject.
Automatically check for updates, when?
At each launch of the application, once a day.
Where is the Preferences file/folder?
The Preferences file/folder is in your Library folder of you home : "~:Library:Preferences:".
I can't launch the app because of message "ThisApp.app is made by an unknown developer and can’t be openend", what can I do?
Do a right-clic on the application, then select the menu to launch it, or to allow it. Another solution is to allow all applications, open System Preferences (in the Apple menu in the upper left corner), then "Security and Privacy", and in Tab "General", unlock the padlock and click on "from anywhere" in "Autorise applications downloaded from".
How can I get rid of the reminder window donation?
I suppose you already donate for this program and you changed your system. Just click the donate button and don't do anything more, don't fill the PayPal window opened with Safari.
What happen if I do that without never donate? Eheh, who knows?! No, nothing, I don't do any control.
I donated but I never received any email from you?
Please check my email isn't considered as spam. And please note that I manage donation manually, then it could take some time if I'm not at home (holiday, work etc.).
How to localize (translate) your application?
Please read this page about Lingua documentation.
How to run the Source code (project) of your application?
Please read this page about Xojo Source code (project) Documentation. It could be useful to help me to correct bug.
