Looking for align on character macro
« on: June 14, 2009, 05:08:42 pm »
I seem to remember there once being a macro that allowed me to align text in a selection on a given character in a column.

So if I had

abcdefg
akdljiee
adfadf

and I had it allgn on the character d at the 10th column i would get:

abc       defg
ak         dljiee
a           dfadf

anyone go something like that?

There is a user-contributed macro for aligning blocks of assignment statements so that all of the equals signs line up.  See this post:  http://community.slickedit.com/index.php?topic=1930.0.

This could probably be adapted pretty easily for what you want.
