Re: TextCrawler Pro 4 - suggestions thread

Update: TextCrawler 4 is well underway and looking very good with a new MDI (multi-search) interface. I hope to post some screenshots soon. I assume you will send an email to current TextCrawler Pro 3 users? Also, is there a beta that can be reviewed? Is there a changelog or list of new features? A...

Re: TextCrawler Pro 4 - suggestions thread

Separate different group match highlighting with different colors. when highlighting in the regex tester and also in the preview, the groups should have alternating colors and/or separate colors with color coding. Because all matches / substitutions having the same color make it difficult to see whi...

Re: TextCrawler Pro 4 - suggestions thread

Make sure you log any batch file attempts. Even if the filename is not found, you should still log that the batch call was attempted in the log. Not sure if this is a bug or not. But if the txc file is not found, no log entry is made. So how would the user know if the job was successful or not. Even...

Re: TextCrawler Pro 4 - suggestions thread

I wanted to add some kind of "multi-pass" or "multi-find" mode. Or perhaps a better name is "sequential find" A lot of people including myself find regex to be a little bit tricky. We see that it is powerful with lots of possibilities....but get frustrated when we are t...

Re: TextCrawler Pro 4 - suggestions thread

5) Improve the regex reference guide in the help file with examples of using lookarounds and some other common searches. So that we can take better advantage of regex. Example here: https://www.digitalvolcano.co.uk/board/viewtopic.php?p=8804#p8804 Try not to make it too complex. But show an example ...

These type of examples need to be included in the regex reference guide. Or you can point to a good online reference guide. I will also link to this for the 4.x suggestion.

Re: TextCrawler Pro 4 - suggestions thread

I made some of these suggestions already. I will re-summarize them here: 1) Need batch searches to be limited by relative dates. Like xx days from [date] and that [date] can be [current date] on the date modified on the file. https://www.digitalvolcano.co.uk/board/viewtopic.php?p=8095#p8095 It is ex...

Re: textcrawler 4 in the works?

any update on a newer 3.x version planned? I particularly need to be able to limit the amount of files in a folder to be scanned. Limit scan by file age from [current date of scan] [date modified] or something like that. As a folder can have a lot of text files, and there is no need to re-scan files...

tabbed interface for multiple search/replace topics.

I noticed that there was no way to work on several search/replace projects independently of each other with the GUI. What is needed is some sort of tabbed interface so that I can perform several different searches and evaluate the results independently without having to clear out search boxes. Or yo...
