Re: Turn off "notes" in dictionary?

I tried that, but it doesn't prevent the dictionary from trying to load the notes in the body of the entry. The screenshot below shows my current config, multiple columns with notes turned off. It still tries to load the notes and fails to find a connection, as you can see att he bottom of the scree...

Turn off "notes" in dictionary?

For some time I have been noticing that accessing the dictionary in RunRev freezes up the application for a few moments, and I think I have finally figured out why - my employer, for whatever reason, has something in the firewall configuration that prevents RunRev from accessing the notes (it always...

the "uneditable" part would be provided by the image file in the RTF, which would be relatively uneditable, since it would be encoded. Actually, after thinking about Mark's suggestion I am goingto go with using mht for thefile format, which is basically a mime-encoded html file that includes the pic...

I have thought about looking at something like the mht format (which is an all-in-one-file html file format like what you mention), but have not started to go down that track yet, since I *should* be able to figure out rtf. The client doesn't want to have to distribute a reader, which is why I am tr...

Unfortunately, for the client I am working with multiple files and having to keep stuff together would only confuse them - I've gotta figure out a single file solution (or convince them that having the output be "uneditable" is stupid, which it is...)

Inserting graphic into a field

Is there any way to insert a graphic into a field? I thought I remembered there being some way to do something like "set the image of char 1 of field myField to image "blah"" or something like that that, but after searching through the docs I cannot seem to find any reference to that functionality a...

Sorry for the delay - I ended up just writing a dirty little switch routine that hand converted from hex to binary, since there were only 16 values to deal with.

I looks like baseconvert is what I was looking for though - I will rewrite to use that.

Thansk!

Hex-Binary conversion

I am working on a project that involves parsing some XML that includes file permission information that has been encoded using a bitmask. The bit mask has been converted into hexidecimal for inclusion in the xml files. What I would like to be able to do is read the xml file and decode the hexidecima...

That did it - thanks!

On the field name, the field contains a change number from another system (that's the param I was trying to pass), and I am still in the habit of using symbols...bad habit, I know.
