Text file import automation

Postby ajturnersurrey on Tue Jun 11, 2019 5:58 am

I have a string of find and replace operations I need to do to any new topic I add to my project:
- remove <style>...</style>
- replace " class=???????" with ""
- remove "<span>"
- remove "</span>"
etc....

Can anyone suggest the best way to automate/combine these operations? I am pretty sure this is beyond Flare itself, but maybe someone has had to do something similar.

In the middle of stuff at the mo, but you could do worse than take a look at FAR HTML. You can write scripts that you can save and run whenever you need to, a very handy tool.
