Hi,

I like your CafeTran CAT tool very much. Especially all the nifty editing features. However, I have one question that has been bothering me for some time now.

Is it possible to enter a syntax into the Edit | Options | General | Characters for removal field that allows me to remove commas before (space +) letters, saving commas before (space +) numbers?

So:

1. Remove comma before:

, bis
, das
, ob
, um

2. Save comma before:

Pos. (1, 2)
1,5 mm

Thanks for looking into this,

Hans

Is it possible to let this command remove commas only when they are followed by a space and a uppercase/lowercase letter?
