The Correction Editor

The Correction editor

1

The Search Box searches for correction entries in the current Correction List.

Plain Text Files for Import / Export

A plain text file that Asutype imports/exports mistakes from/to is a 2-column tab-separated plain ANSI or UNICODE text file (i.e. no formatting information such as bold, italic, tables, images etc. - you can use NotePad to create a plain text file) with each mistake in a single line, the mistake and the correction parts are separated by a tab. Lines starting with a semicolon (;) are comment lines. Blank lines and comment lines will be ignored when importing. For example:

; start example
; -------------------
; Following are a few entries of a plain text file
; Each entry in a single line, 2-column tab-separated
; Lines starting with a semicolon are comment lines
; Blank lines and comment lines will be ignored when importing
