I am a happy user of the wonderful feature "Insert Source Tags".
However, the way I use it means that I *always* remove the extra spaces that are inserted between tags.

Is there a simple way to insert source tags without adding extra spaces ?
If not, could someone provide a link to some documentation about how to handle tags in the (new) scripting interface ?

Thank you !

Not currently.

I think there is an enhancement request on Sourceforge.

I don't think someone has documented that.
That said, if you look at the code which does "Insert Source Tags", it shouldn't be too difficult to write the same in Groovy, omitting the extra spaces.

Thank you very much for your answer Didier !

I wrote this script which seems to do the job - it could probably be simplified (my knowledge of Java is extremely limited).

-------------------------------------

import java.util.regex.Matcher;
import java.util.regex.Pattern;
import org.omegat.util.PatternConsts;

public static String buildPaintPlaceholderList2(String str) {
String res = "";
Pattern placeholderPattern = PatternConsts.getPlaceholderPattern();
Matcher placeholderMatcher = placeholderPattern.matcher(str);
int last=0;
while (placeholderMatcher.find()) {
int rs = placeholderMatcher.start();
if (rs != last && last !=0) {
res += "";
}
res += placeholderMatcher.group(0);
last = placeholderMatcher.end();
}
return res;
}

def ste = editor.currentEntry;
source=ste.getSrcText();
sourcetags=buildPaintPlaceholderList2(source);
editor.insertText(sourcetags);
