Hi,

I thought I would share some advanced techniques I use to be more efficient in Flare through the code. Some of these tools are already built-in, but using the 3rd party applic­ation named Notepad++ (an open source tool) allows us to create and apply macros in text, which is disabled in Flare's text editor. As an example of the power of learning these tools, I work at a company where multiple groups created different CSS versions for each area. When we unified under one version, creating conversion macros allowed us to convert thousands of topics to align with single CSS version in days. It would have taken months to manually complete that task. A simple task of changing all bold tags to italics could literally take minutes in multiple projects.
