Editing texts in Viewer

Viewer and Aligner > editing


While Viewer is not a full word-processor, some editing facilities have been built in to help deal with common formatting problems:

Edit (EDIT): opens up a window allowing you to edit the whole of the current sentence or paragraph.
Trim extra spaces: this goes through each sentence of the text, removing any redundant spaces -- where there are two or more consecutive spaces they will be reduced to one.
Find lower-case lines: this identifies cases where a sentence or paragraph does not start with a capital letter or number -- you will probably want to join it to the one above. This problem is common if the text has been saved as "text only with line breaks" (where an <Enter> comes at the end of each line whether or not it is the end of a paragraph.)
Find short lines


You will then want to save (F2) your text.


You can also:

open a new file for viewing (you can open any number of text files within Viewer)
copy a text file to the clipboard (select, then press Control+Ins)
print the whole or part of the currently active text file
search for words or phrases (press F12)
