    Default Applescript support

    Anyone here knows Applescript? I've been getting such good support on this forum in other subject areas, I'm hoping someone here also uses Macs and Applescript.

    A search of the forum for "Applescript" yielded no hits.

    Kind regards,

    Perhaps if you had a specific question someone could help you more?

    or you can find what you need through Apple.com

    Here's what's going on and what I'm trying to achieve. I'm generating HTML and CSS automatically from Scrivener, a Mac-only author's writing program (a very good one).

    I've created an AppleScript to work to run through the HTML text to do a stream of search and replace functions. I have many documents to process and this works very well. However, there are some segments where the string between one predictable delimiter and another. What's called for is a wildcard to select all the text between the delimiters and replace it with something else.

    I've been unsuccessful so far in discovering the syntax for a wildcard in AppleScript. Yes, I could go to Apple's forums (and probably will) but those forums are gigantic, and get a lot of off-the-mark responses. I'm more comfortable with more focused forums such as this one.

    Kind regards,

    Well, I am not a Mac user nor do I dabble in AppleScripts, but the few I have seen have used ? or * usually in paren's (*) and (.*).

    I have heard some speak that version 7 (?) is more advanced than previous, although I don't know how old version 7 is...

    Good Luck.
