BBEdit tips and tricks

Found a great tip today for BBEdit

BBEdit has a great markup library, but it’s so hidden that I rarely use it. Today I had a big text document from word that I needed to transcribe to a web page.

Following tips are great.

1. Use my tidyword applescript to strip any word doc nasties into nice HTML markup

2. Go into BBEdit->Preferences->Menus->View – Select the “Balance” tag. Then click ‘clear key’

3. Now in the same window, select Markup->Font Style Elements – select the ‘Bold’ tag. Then click “set key”. When prompted, hold down apple-B. Click the ‘Set’ button

4. Go back to your document. Select some text. Hit apple-b and the selected text will have balanced ‘<b>’ tags wrapped around it.

Repeat with as many tags as you like. Made my life today a lot easier.

Enjoy
