John Ridge
I'm in the habit of pasting text from a specific website into a stack  
I use for keeping research notes. I'm surprised and pleased that the  
Paste command copes with styled text - even better, I can then re-
format the text, changing fontsize and font, and still keep other  
styled elements such as colour.

But for some reason (maybe the website has just been redesigned?)  
there is now no white space between paragraphs. No problem, I thought  
- I'll script my "New Note" button to do all the work, including the  
pasting - so after checking the docs I tried

set the htmlText of fld "Notes" to the clipboarddata["HTML"]

which is fine. But my attempts to add white space seem to be  
destroying all the styling...

I've tried

replace "<p>" with "<p></p><p>" in fld "Notes"

which I thought was pretty subtle. Hmm... I must be missing something  
obvious here, as usual.

TIA for any help

Best wishes
John

Inserting blank lines between paragraphs [was: no subject]

Eric Chatonet
Hi John,

Try:
put the htmlText of fld "Notes" into tHtml
replace "</p>" & cr with "</p>" & cr & "</p><p>"  & cr in tHtml
set the htmlText of fld "Notes" to tHtml

1. This will insert a blank line between paragraphs.
2. Always work on the html by putting it into a variable first.

Best Regards from Paris,

Eric Chatonet.
