| 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.
I sometimes ear a "Pouet" song, what is it?
The source encoding selected cause problem, the search/replace won't be done. And the file won't be saved in Batch process.
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 systems. Go to the Help menu to display a dialog box with the version of Xojo which built the application (sometimes I rebuild the application with the last Xojo version without changing the application version).
Where is Email Contact to the developer?
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 answer. If I don'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 folder?
The Preferences folder is "Application Support" folder in your Library folder of your home folder : "~:Library:Application Support:fr.Toroco.TextBatchConv Datas".
I can't launch the app because of message "ThisApp.app is made by an unknown developer and can’t be opened", what can I do?
Do a right-click 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 "Authorize applications downloaded from".
How can I get rid of the donation reminder window?
I suppose you already donated for this program and you changed your system. Just click the "I've already donated!" button, or cick the "Donate" button and don't do anything more, don't fill in the PayPal window opened with Safari.
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 donations manually. 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 a bug found by users.
