merci! While you're in the TableMaker code, here's another problem I'm
having trouble working around.
The %1-substitution mechanism from the Tree window "Tables..." box (via
wspec/table.menu.wrm) into the Condition of a column definition still isn't
satisfactory. A long time ago (ace3-0 or before) I complained that it
didn't work when the name of the current object contained multiple words,
so you fixed it by substituting only the first word of the name. Thus I
could find the desired objects using "%1*". E.g.:
The only problem with this was the degeneracy, that all objects beginning
with that word are found as hits, not just the current object. Now under
ace4_1 there's an additional problem. The "*" is being stripped off, so no
hits are found at all.
I wonder if it would be possible to substitute the whole object name into
the Condition, enclosed in double-quotes so multiple words are allowed.
