Frequently Asked Questions v2
Author: Mitra (based on info from Honza)
AA version: 2.6
There was changed behavior of string removing in AA v2.6. Now we use much easier steps:
Following worked in AA v2.4 and less, so now is OBSOLETE
- unalias (expand) whole text (replace aliases and any other AA expressions)
- remove all specified remove strings
Removing of stings works before alias substitution - it never replaces the text filled by user in the field. If you have
=> _#HEADLINE (_#AUTHOR##)
and remove string "()", than it first looks for empty alias content and then removes such aliases.
Let _#HEADLINE = "Hi Ann"
and _#AUTHOR## = "" (empty)
In first step the emtpty aliases are removed:
=> _#HEADLINE ()
Then the "remove strings" are removed:
and then the remaining aliases are substituted.
