I rely heavily on SC Plus in W2K and XP and have used SC in the past on Mac, as well as predecessor Thunder7 (I think that was the name). In the Mac, a glossary file was simply a simpletext file and could be easily printed for reference. I can't seem to do the same on the PC platform. When I open up a glossary file in a text editor all the entries are run together with an unknow separator that I cant do a "search and replace" on in my word processor. How can I format a glossary for printing and reference? Help.

If you have a text editor that can search and replace ASCII null (zero) characters, then you could just replace them with (say) 2 returns.

So the mystery separator is a null...

John might know a better way, he'll be able to tell you tomorrow sometime.

Hi,

Great question... I can send you a utility program that will convert glossary to text files and back, or if you want, send your glossary files to me and I'll do it for you. You can contact me using john_at_rainmakerinc.com.

In an upcoming release (sometime in '06), a new version will include improved learned words and glossary editors that will certainly include the ability to import/export glossary contents to text files.

Thanks,
