Not seeing text file
« on: October 14, 2020, 08:55:41 AM »
I recently created a UTF-8 text file using Windows notepad, and I think that I did it in the same way as in previous text files that worked fine  Yet when I go into PM and try to use code replacement the code just stays there like it's a regular word. My Delimeter is the  =  sign and I don't have anything in the Default replacement area.

As an experiment I just tried to use code replacement from last year's sports roster text file - that I know worked - and none of them will work now.

Please post your new file and I'll take a look at it.  Use the 'Attachments and other options' link when you're composing your reply to this message and there you'll be able to upload your file.

I got it.  I was not adding the second back slash  \ch22      and it should have been \ch22\   It's all good now.
