Re: Arbortext Isodraw Macro Text edit

Try this script:

 

Macro Remove cs
DEFINE el as Element
Select if Text contains 'cs'

IF (exists(activeDoc.firstSelectedElement)) THEN
	el = activeDoc.firstSelectedElement
	WHILE (exists(el))
		IF (el.type="Text") THEN
                      el.text.string = right(el.text.string, (len(el.text.string) - 2))
		END IF
                el = el.nextSelectedElement
	END WHILE
END IF
END MACRO

This macro finds all text elements that contain "cs", then loops through them and removes the two leftmost characters (which should be "cs"). This should work for your purposes if "cs" is always the two characters on the left.

 

If "cs" could appear anywhere within the text string, you may need a different, more robust approach. Let me know, hope this helps!
