The following MS Doc needs to be fixed in footnote format. I have a lot of docs with the same problem. So I want to use MS Word search/ replace function.
The footnote number is in superscript, followed by line break or paragraph break. Would you give me the proper search/ replace phrases to remove the break?

Thank you, Patchworkid.

Your information gave me a great help.
I have adjusted it a little.
Find: ([0-9]{1,2})^13
Replace: \1

One more request.
Could you give me a Word macro for the following procedures?
---------
Find ([0-9]{1,2})^13
Replace \1 (*one space)
Block the whole document (Ctrl + A)
Change font size to “11”, font color to “black”.
Block the whole document (Ctrl + A).
Cut. (Ctrl + X).
End.
-----
I plan to paste the result on clipboard into another editor.

Here's a handy Microsoft Word macro to change the case of text. Microsoft Word will change specific text to All Capital letters. But there's no easy to way to go from All Capitals to other cases.

This macro was useful on Hasting's dictionary. The original dictionary entries were all capital letters. I find all capital letters in dictionary entries very distracting. So this macro changed the text to each word capitalized instead of all capitals.

This could be used in a lot of ways. But the way I set it up below is to search for a line beginning with ÷ to the end of the paragraph.

The input text was something like:

÷DICTIONARY ENTRY
dictionary definition here. No other text is changed.

And the output text was:

÷Dictionary Entry
dictionary definition here. No other text is changed.

Sub ChangeCase()
	With Selection.Find
		 .ClearFormatting
		 .Wrap = wdFindContinue
		 .Forward = True
		 .Format = True
		 .MatchWildcards = True
		 .text = "÷*^13"
		 .Execute
		 While .Found
			 Selection.Range.Case = wdTitleWord
			 Selection.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd
			.Execute
		 Wend
	 End With
End Sub

You can change the Selection.Range.Case = wdTitleWord line to wdLowerCase, wdUpperCase, wdTitleSentence, wdToggleCase, etc to get different text effects. For example, wdTitleSentence makes just the first letter of the first word in the entry capitalized, and words that follow are lowercase.

You could turn wildcards off (modify line: .MatchWildcards = False) and search for specific words or leave wildcards on and form a regular expression matching certain combinations of words to change to another case.

I know we live in an era when it's "cool" to hate Microsoft. Or maybe "trendy" is a better word. But after all the Microsoft monopoly "sass", I'm yet to find a better word processor than Microsoft Word 2010. It's what I use to write the e-Sword User's Guide. And having used more powerful tools over the years for technical documentation, like Adobe Pagemaker and Framemaker, I'm yet to see a tool that is as flexible, powerful, and easy to use as Word 2010.

I abuse it quite frequently by conducting regular expression searches on files 10, 20, 50, 100+ megabytes in size, which it handles flawlessly when I've had other word processors crash. I know there's text editors that can do this too, but Word's nerfed regular expressions are easy to use.

I've done easy searches and operations (less than 3 seconds) in Word that other word processors need "macros" for. And when I do need a macro, writing one (or finding one on the Internet) is easy (because everyone uses Word). When you have to create or edit a macro, like the one I posted here a few days ago that converts footnotes to in-line citations, that's also easy thanks to the Macro Editor. If I need roman numerals converted to arabic numerals, there's a macro for that too (courtesty of David Cox).

This is how I make a lot of Topics modules. I make them in Microsoft Word. For those of you who don't understand--the left side of the screen will be the chapters in a Topic module. The ÷ sign will be used to recognize each new section when the module is made. It's a placeholder that says: this is the start of a new section.

Look at the screenshot below (my actual screensize is larger--I reduced the size of Word to make a smaller graphic).

attachicon.gifword_topics2.png

Notice the Navigation pane on the left side of the screen. Isn't that handy? I have a birds eye view of my topics, almost like I'm reading them in e-Sword. I can track my topic numbering (no wondering what the last topic number was). I can track my topic indents for nested topics. I can click any topic and go directly to it--no scrolling up and down or searching for a topic. I can rearrange topics (if need be) by dragging the item up or down in the Navigation Pane. Each time I add a new section with a ÷ sign, that section appears in my navigation pane.

Now look at the right side of the screen. That's my clipboard manager. When I want to insert a new ÷section and a return for an extra line, I just click a previous section name, and it insert's the text where my cursors is. Then I can adjust the section name as necessary. The clipboard history is very handy--to be able to copy anything I've copied previouisly with a click--right there in Word.

When I'm all done in Word, then I take the text into Tooltip (another word processor) for tooltipping and module generation. That requires maybe 3 clicks--in other words, it's easy.

For those of you who think making e-Sword modules is brain surgery--it isn't. If you can use a word processor and point / click a mouse, then you can make an e-Sword module. For topics files, It's as easy as my screenshot makes it look!

There was another little tool written used to create resources by some Sth American bloke that was quite grunty and perhaps one of the best tools at that time, but I don't remember what it was called (a real pity).

 

I used that tool a lot!  It was called Biblos.  I have version 1.2.1.  His name was Joaquin Fernadnez.  joaquinf@cantv.net   I wish there was something like that for SQLite... holy grail indeed.
