Problem with scrubbing line breaks from text copied from PDF...

7 discussion posts
Help please, this is driving me crazy! I can't figure out how to configure the action settings so that I can remove the line breaks but replace them with a space. Otherwise, I have to go back and individually edit the words that get mashed together where the line break used to be. Thank youuu

I put together a Macro that should do what you need and attached it to this post. Here's what you need to do to get it working in ClipboardFusion:

  • Download the file attached to this post
  • Open the ClipboardFusion Settings window
  • On the "Macros" tab, click the "Import" button
  • Select the file you downloaded in the first step
  • In the window that pops up, you can review the code and assign the Macro a HotKey
  • Click OK to close the Macro Edit window, then OK again to save and apply your changes

I hope this works for you!

I downloaded this and added it into a trigger for Acrobat.
However, it does not work as intended.
Any suggestions?

Does it work if you use it on any other applications besides Adobe?

It shouldn't, since I added a requirement for detecting the acrobat DC application.

In case you are asking if I tried selecting another executable as a part of trigger detection, the answer is no, as I have no other apps I need this for.

I have also tried selecting the option for stopping the execution of the rest, but that also did not make a difference (i.e., still did not work).

I have now tried setting up a hot-key combination for this macro, instead of adding it as a trigger detected for Acrobat, and that works.

However, it'd be nice if this (replace the new line character [paragraph or line-break] with a space) may be added as a built-in feature that can be ticked on like the other ones in there, as I suspect this to be a commonly needed one.

Also: it is possible to get a version of the macro that may work as a part of a triggered action (upon detection of Acrobat)?

Strange, do you get a notification that the trigger is firing when you have that script attached?
