Re: trim and merge 4k video lossless

The only thing missing is getting the full filepath from an already loaded video file , if anyone has a solution that would be great . you could send F3 which would open up the folder that the file is in, then send ^l and ^c to get the folder path from the address bar. not the cleanest solution but...

one-liners to restore built-in variables

i made a function a while back to save the state of a built-in variable, change it while youre running something else, then set it back to what it was... but i never really used it much in the end since i share a lot of my scripts and if i used the function then it would mean other people would also...

test lab - quick code testing using a single hotkey

the idea behind test lab is to take some of the friction out of writing scripts by letting you use a single hotkey to quickly test out your changes. normally this process requires 3 hotkeys: 1: ctrl + s to save your changes 2: a hotkey to reload the script 3: another hotkey to run your code these ar...

Re: txt.replace - interactively replace a character with another

Man! This is awesome. I've been using Notepad++ to paste into, do a Find and Replace, then copying and pasting the content back to where i needed it.

Re: txt.wrap - wrap selected text in %symbols%

i wrote this again from "the ground up", or whatever the current buzzword is this week. it now uses a 2 stage hotkey (credit to guest3456 for that idea!) so there is less setup needed before hand... just press alt + w and then the character you want wrapped if you want different characters on either...

maybe you copy-pasted the script and missed the end of the file? there should be 89 lines in the file altogether
