Insert control code

With the Insert control code function you can insert new control codes into the text.

If a block is marked in the text then a dialog box appears in which you can choose how Eddie should behave (in the illustration below for text styles for instance). You have the option of inserting the code at the cursor position, replacing the marked block with it or (for functions listed below) applying the code to the marked block.

The full version of Eddie supports several blocks simultaneously, and therefore has a more extensive query dialog.

The following control codes can be applied to the block:

Text style
The style to be used is inserted before the block, directly after it the style that applied at this position previously. All styles within the block will be removed. This corresponds to the Change text style function of the Text module.
Eddie incidentally optimises styles, removing those that are superfluous. If the text is already in the style that is to be applied, then no control codes will be inserted.
The application of rulers works in exactly the same way as for styles.
Footnote entry, Index entry, Comment
The text block is converted to the relevant control code. The contents of the block will afterwards be within the control codes.
If you want to return to certain places in the text several times, you can insert a comment control code at the relevant positions. Later you can use the search function to look specifically for each comment.
Manual kerning
Eddie inserts a kerning control code at the beginning and end of each block. The values for horizontal (X) and vertical (Y) offset have to be input into the editable fields of the subdialog that appears, which is then quit by pressing [Return]. Another dialog box appears and when you click on Apply, the control code at the start of the block will be assigned the set X and Y displacement values, the control code at the end exactly the opposite values. Should such control codes already be present there, they will simply be altered rather than new ones added. If existing control codes were modified, then a relative change of the kerning takes place at the end of the block.
Example 1: Apply [Kerning X=10.0 Y=–2.0] to the block
At the start of the block: [Kerning X:10.0 Y:–2.0] will be inserted
At the end of the block: [Kerning X:–10.0 Y:2.0] will be inserted
Example 2: Apply [Kerning X:10.0 Y:–2.0] to the block, though this already has the following control codes present:
At the start of the block there is: [Kerning X:5.0 Y:1.0]
At the end of the block there is: [Kerning X:–4.0 Y:–1.0] (i.e. the 5.0 is not completely cancelled out)
The start of the block will be altered to: [Kerning X:10.0 Y:–2.0] (as specified)
The end of the block will be altered to: [Kerning X:–9.0 Y:2.0] (the –10.0 will not be completely cancelled out by the same amount as previously).
