Tex-Edit Plus in between
Authored by: ali baba on Mar 06, '04 08:41:47AM
first thanks for the hint tamc!

i couldn't get the Data-->Text to columns...." method mentioned by EntropyGuru to work so i tried to prepare the copied data in Tex-Edit Plus.. by the time i was done i saw marook's method of preparing in BBEdit. i ‘ll post the Tex-Edit Plus way anyway since many use it and in Tex-Edit Plus you can make a script of it.. maybe in BB too.. open Script Editor and paste the below in a new window:


tell application "Tex-Edit Plus"
     if exists window 1 then tell window 1
          replace window 1 looking for "^c" replacing with "^t"
          replace window 1 looking for "^t^t" replacing with "^c"
     end tell
end tell
and save this as script inside the Tex-Edit Plus scripts folder

hrmpf - too bad this method doesn't work when data inside a cell contains breaks or is (auto)wrapped by the cell-width.. chocky's method of pasting html-table-data works best, it's even more reliable than pasting from explorer, since explorer puts data separated by a break in another cell as well
