Is there a quicker way to tag a word in a text display to make it bold rather than clicking on the left side of the WORD, typiing
<b> and then clicking on the right side of the WORD and typing
</b> OR selecting the WORD and changing the font for that WORD to a bold version of the font? I tried a procedure to run after copying the WORD to the clipboard, which does not work:
let lpaste = "<b>"+clipboard()+"</B>"
(then trying to paste lpaste somewhere…also does not work)
I wrote a simpler version of your procedure:
clipboard() = "<b>"+clipboard()+"</b>"
It worked fine. However, I think the problem you are running into is that there is no way to run a procedure in graphics mode. What I had to do was:
- select the text and copy it
- switch to a different window
- run the procedure
- switch back to the form in graphics mode
- select the text again (if it’s not already selected)
- paste the new text
With all those steps, probably not worth doing.
You might try looking into a program like Keyboard Maestro. I’m not sure if KM could do it, but I suspect it might be possible.
