I'll start this off with a request from Tina here in the office: can we remove a Symbol Browser favorite folder from the program preferences, or the SB menu, please? We can edit the Dcadwin.ini file, but this is more involved than many folks want to get into.

A recurring wish: text search, and search and replace - PLEASE?

The Scrive Macro will do that.

Also, you can Copy the text you want to replace with, then do a Change/Text/Area/Mask/Entity/Text/Text Mask

I think this alias will work, you can add to you .dca file.
Code: Select all[FR]
comment=Find-Replace text
alias=^;^F0^S8^S2^F5^S8^F0^F1^S7^S7^F1^S3^F1^F1^F1^ÂȘEnter Text to find^S0^S0^S0^F3

Does Scrive work with ParaText and MText?

No. I think we had this discussion a while ago.

I don't think MText or PText are accessible from DCAL at all. My wish would be that they could be added to the DCAL capabilities (along with smart walls and others that have also not been added to DCAL)....

Right - I hope we get Search and Search & Replace functions built into DataCAD.
