Hi All - just wanted to point out that when you import your text into Tinderbox (as a csv, via drag/drop, or other methods),
[edit: updated per @eastgate's clarification below] Tbx MAY not be happy about importing the quotation marks within your text. As @eastgate states, this happens when the host exporting app doesn't encode your text file as UTF-8 format, So please specify UTF-8 format when importing any CSV's into Tinderbox.
[nb: This issue of UTF-8 import is not a concern if you're importing text into a Code-Prototype Note.]
Anyway - if you end up with text containing quote marks that for some reason or another break on Tbx import, one quick way out of this is to search/replace your text for special characters (there many ways to do this, AppleScript and so on; I just use find/replace).
Example - for quotation marks, you can use:
| Dec: 199 | Hex: C7 | « (left pointing guillemet) | Keystroke: Option-\ |
| Dec: 200 | Hex: C8 | » (right pointing guillemet) | Keystroke: Option-Shift-|
The kicker here is that Numbers supports automatically typing your quote signs as guillernets (set this in Preferences), so if you’re typing stuff into Numbers that will eventually end up in Tinderbox anyway, you don’t need to modify your typing habits.
I have also had issues with other special characters in the past - “” (backslash… you can’t see it here either lol), “Ω” I’m pretty sure of (will append this list as/when possible for future reference).
Hope this is useful.
