    hello!

    I currently work with turkish text and I need an automatic way to convert all special turkish characters into their corresponding english/latin characters

    because I often work with other than english languages that have special characters, I need a way to convert them to their english/latin character analogue

    but for now, a solution for turkish?

    thanks!

    Hi,

    I guess it could be done by macro:

    – start “record macro”,
    – replace one special character to the corresponding latin character (replace all)
    – stop record
    – “edit” the macro recored, copy all code generated by emeditor and paste it else where.
    – repeat the procedure above with each special character you want to replace, except append the generated macro code to the first one.
    – save the cumulated code to a single macro, put it in toolbar or asign it a short-cut key.

    Best regards! 🙂

    Hi user,

    As ToadLoadin mentioned, you can use a macro to do this.

    Also, you can use the Batch Replace feature of EmEditor Professional 11 to do this task easily.

    Thanks!

    thanks, I will try macro, but I am interested in batch replace too

    however, is it possible to save a specific batch and run it by clicking a button in the toolbar?

    Hi user,

    Unfortunately, it is not easy to create a button from a batch you create from the Batch Replace feature. I might think about exporting as a macro from the Batch Replace dialog in future versions. Thanks!

    can anyone write a JS script or something that will do these replaces with a click of a button?

    i for ı
    g for ğ
    s for ş
    c for ç
    u for ü
    o for ö

    case sensitive, in all document, every instance

    thanks!

    Hello,

    You could actually record a macro while doing the batch replace.

    The actual script will look like:

    document.selection.Replace("a","b",eeFindNext | eeFindSaveHistory | eeFindReplaceEscSeq | eeReplaceAll | eeFindReplaceQuiet);
    document.selection.Replace("c","d",eeFindNext | eeFindSaveHistory | eeFindReplaceEscSeq | eeReplaceAll | eeFindReplaceQuiet);
    ...

    Thanks,

    it seems to work very well, thanks!

    but how do I specify the case-sensitive action?

    I guess while recording the macro, if you turned case sensitive on, it will also be recored into the macro code.

    Hi all,

    1) What command should be used for removing a character?

    2) How to replace double (or more) empty lines with a single empty line?

    Thank you!

    Yutaka,

    I have just used this technique to write a snippet/macro that changes curly quotes (single and double), sort and long dashes into their equivalent keyboard characters.

    In the past I have had to do this as a series of “Find and Replace” tasks. Now its a simple highlight the text and click on the snippet.

    Thank you very much for the tip.

    Regards,
    Peter 😀

    Thank you!

    Now how is it possible to remove double (or more) empty lines?

    Thank you again for any response!

    🙂 I think it could be done with this macro:

    // If nothing selected, select all.
    var currentSelection = getSelection();

    // A find'n replace using regular expression
    // (in selected range only).
    currentSelection.Replace("^s*$n", "", eeReplaceSelOnly | eeReplaceAll | eeFindReplaceRegExp);

    // earase search keyword highlighting.
    document.HighlightFind = false;

    Then, you could use this macro to insert empty lines between each “none-empty” line (forgive my poor english):

    // If nothing selected, select all.
    var currentSelection = getSelection();

    // A find'n replace using regular expression
    // (in selected range only).
    currentSelection.Replace("n", "nn", eeReplaceSelOnly | eeReplaceAll | eeFindReplaceRegExp);

    // earase search keyword highlighting.
    document.HighlightFind = false;
