[bksvol-discuss] Re: Validating

Hi, Rose. Maybe if you just try selecting the hyphens and tabs and replacing 
with nothing, maybe that would work, or selecting the entire hyphen-tab-new 
line combination and pasting that in. Either way, that might work. Take 
care.

I have tried searching for -/n and -/t and replacing with nothing but
every time I get zero corrections are made, but I can still find this
-/nl and I cannot get a rank spelling to work because so many word
endings are floating around.  I am not into doing this all manually on a
900 page document, not even with tomorrow off.

Thanks.  I did not intend to start out big , I did not know the file was
going to be big, it turned out to be more than I'd bargained for but
since I have it I might as well do it.

Thanks for the K1000 hints, I have used it most for reading and scanning
and have not done a lot of the rank spelling or editing yet.  I have a
feeling that is about to change.  Now, if it will quit locking up on me
today.

Hi Rose,
Wow, you're brave to take on a gigantic project like this for your first
validation effort. Your experience with medical terminology is a great
asset
for the Bookshare collection. Just make sure you do other more fun
validations too so you don't get Bookshare burnout. <grin>
Here are some instructions/suggestions for your situation.

First, it may be that the tabs following the hyphens are throwing off
Kurzweil's auto-correction feature. Try replacing hyphen followed by tab
with just hyphen, then run the autocorrect again and see if it helps.
The
way to make a tab in the find/replace box is \t
If that doesn't work, what you might want to do is replace hyphen
followed
by newline, or hyphen followed by tab newline, whichever is occurring,
with
nothing. To do this in Kurzweil all you have to know is that the way to
make
a tab in the find/replace dialogue is \t and the newline character is \n
So to fix a hyphen followed by tab and linebreak you would hit ctrl-h to
enter the find/replace box, then type -\t\n and put nothing in the
replace
with field. After you've done a mass f/r such as this, it's always good
to
check around and make sure it didn't have any unintended consequences.
So I
would save any other changes you made before starting this so you won't
lose
any other changes you may have made if something goes funky with the
f/r.

I'm sorry if this message is a bit scrambled, I've been dealing with a
three-day-long migraine, and between that and the unfortunately not as
effective as I'd like medicine I may not be running on all eight
cyllinders.
