    Question .. Have you snipped a portion from a JOURNAL File for scripting or reusing?

    Question .. Have you snipped a portion from a JOURNAL File for scripting or reusing? For example, I have a journal file I run that can zoom-fit on all blocks, .. the line is simple:

    Jrn.Command "Menu" , "Redraw everything as large as fits into window , ID_ZOOM_FIT"
    If you use any .. could you share them with me, .. I am putting together a BATCH app that you can use to rerun journal commands on several files at once.

    You know there is one of those that ships with the program, right?

    We have a modified version for rfa and rvt's alike.

          Yes, I've snipped out the main portion of a journal file to recreate the work that was done before a power outage when someone "must" have all the work they just lost in a 4 hour period [cause they didn't listen to me when I told them to stop ignoring the auto save dialogs]. Can you make an option that strips the header and close information to run the entirety of a journal for this purpose?

              There is a journal scrubber utility floating around that strips out everything but the commands... =)

                You mean this one?

                Props to Robert Manna for the original over here.

                EDIT: Extract the EXE, put it in a folder with nothing else but the journal(s) you want to scrub. Run the exe.

                  Yessir, that would be it. Thanks for the props to Robert, i was going to have to search my email archives for where it came from, and i was in training all day.

                  Ive made great use of that thing, its worth its weight in gold!

                  (Sorry i didnt post it. I had to roll my machine back 12 months last week. My files are all still on my external, LOL)

                    Thanks fellas .. Before I wrap up the app .. I want to expand on the option .. in a text box area will be a space where you can include a custom journal command to have it batch the files, I thought it would be cool to have a handful of presets you can click to add from a listbox so you can select and add those (like the zoom one)... before you batch run .. and to keep you from having to strip it out of a journal file.

                    Trying to simplify for all of us ;-) .. and don't worry .. it'll be free .. like beer.
