Hi!

first off, i'm a newbie (been using TW for 4 days), but LOVE it.
tech-savvyness on a scale from 1 (aka: my grandmother) -10 (aka: your
typical nerd): 4

Use Case:
i'm taking many notes, pasting emails, taking meeting minutes etc in TW.
so, basically 'collecting' data.
about 1% of that turns out to be important enough to include into a weekly
report i'm sending out to peers and supervisors.
i'm currently marking / highlighting that 1% *inline* by using another tip
from this forum...i'm overriding the CSS for the subscript decoration

Q: is there a way to create a collector tiddler, that filters/searches for
the 'sub' CSS in all tiddlers, and transcludes the string i highlighted?

Thank you!

S

Hi Stefan and welcome to TW! If you like TW - don't forget to tell your
friends <http://tiddlywiki.com/#HelpingTiddlyWiki>!

I made the CherryPicker <http://cherrypicker.tiddlyspot.com/> for pretty
much exactly what you ask for. It is not perfected though.
I believe fellow Thomas has made variant of this too (it may be his Extract
macro, not sure).

sorry, my previous comment got mangled by the screenshot somehow
please reduce my tech-savvyness index by 2 points :)

@Mat, i'm getting results, but they are garbled. I tired with several
markers (some weird, very distinct strings too) to no avail. am i doing it
wrong or am i facing a TW version incompatibility?

I would love getting this to work, it's as if you've read my mind

thanks
Stefan

@Stefan

if I recall (it was a while ago!), the start- and end markers must be on
the format " &&Your Text" and "End Of Text&& " respectively, i.e note the
spaces and lack of spaces surrounding the "&&".

Stefan, I'll look in to this but I can't say when. I'm already involved in
a few other things here so it may take time. Did you have a chance to look
up Thomas Elmigers version of this? It may be his extract macro but I'm not
quite sure. @Thomas - ?

Hi Stefan and Mat

My Extract macro should do the job. In a recent discussion we pointed out, that the documentation is lousy (sorry!), but the discussion itself should be helpful.

@Thomas, i'll look into it. i did a few quick tests, it worked, but didn't
*really* cover my use case yet. i'm sure i'm missing something though.
in a nutshell, what i'm stumbling over is the fact that i don't want to use
the search in the right rail, but create twiddlers which do the search &
extraction.
does that make sense? :)

But thanks for sharing, i'll dig deeper next week!

@Mat, no worries, and huge thanks for your help so far!

Hi Stefan,

After importing the macro from here
<http://tid.li/tw5/hacks.html#Extract%20Macro> (by dragging over the link
in the *Extract Macro Components* paragraph) you should be able to place
the following in any tiddler to find all highlighted text:

<<extract "OriginalTiddler" start:",," end:",," limit:"no">>

the parameters tell the extract macro to 


- look for content in a tiddler titled *OriginalTiddler*
- cut out snippets starting with ,, (the subscript marker)
- cut out snippets up to the ending marked with ,, (the subscript marker
again)
- give you all snippets (instead of only the first)


Hope, this helps.

GrÃŒessli
Thomas
