    • is it possible to size a layout that matches the exact size of an object/container for export purposes (say 468x60 pixels) I'm wanting to do some graphic style layouts. Printing them limits you to the inherent dimensions available on your printer, but exporting them as PDF and then editing them further there is a distinct option. ANd I am more interested in keeping them in teh digital realm than in printing them to paper. Any way to export the results in the desired size?  
    • Hi riadh2002 Thanks fo posting this mod. I love it, when someone can extend on what I start.
      Really glad that my tool seems to have been helpful to you and others. In case someone has only had their hands on the first version, I released, the most recent version of the tool, let's you both import, "make FM ready" SVG - but the most useful feature of the newest version, is that you can take a found set, press the button to "copy" all found icons and paste them into your solution all at once.
      So say you have a standard collection of SVG icons, that you normally want to use. Find these icons in the tool. Copy them. And then you use the paste shortcut, which will insert a button bar object, that you can delete immediately after you pasted it.
      Now, all your icons appear in the tools palette of your file. Newest version can be found here: http://thebrainbasket.com/?p=404  (completely free and open)

    • I am afraid this is still not clear enough. You did not mention a list until now. A return-separated list of values is not the same thing as paragraph of words (even if your list contains only single-word values). Anyway, it sounds like you want to go over a list of values, and remove a value if it contains the string HOME (case-sensitive) - is that correct?  
    • You can filter that out. Filter (yourField); "0123456789")
