    The reason why I asked is because many tables I convert have short paragraphs in them and every comma messes it up.

    I would love to make the trigger ~ or similar and preserve text with commas in their own cell.

    I understand about Starfinder keeping you busy.

    As mentioned you can replace your commas with something else and then swap them back in the output file or you can crack open the extension and change the separater(sp) definition in the extension...

    I am very appreciative of the extension as is. I can open up the db.xml in N++ and figure out how to do a global search and replace for whatever I replace the , with, but I am much better in Word and Excel to prepare the file in advance. So I was just hoping.

    I find it incredibly nice how much other people share their extensions and rulesets here. Really great community that way.

    For anyone interested in the other recent table extension by Celestian, you can find it here.

    That extension (contrary to the thread title) works in any CoreRPG ruleset, and it lets you paste any text into a single column table. The gotcha on this one is that PDF text that has line breaks in it will show up as one table roll entry for every line.

    When I can get my Generators extension fully tested, you will be able to import xml tables, provided they are in FG format. If you have the details on some alternate format and it isn't too bizarre, I will look at making them import as well.

    I didn't know of this extension till today but... I suspect it could be coded to use <tab> or <comma> as a divider tho im not sure that would help your situation.

    CSV can be set to pretty much any character to replace comma in excel. Like ~.

    Now You just need to replace all the commas you want to keep with another character, import them, and then open up the XML and search and replace all the characters you used with comma.

    I am not great in N++, and always worry about opening an XML file that FG relies on, but it is certainly doable.

    I was more thinking of hacking the extension to do it Either use tab or , or maybe have a selection option. That said I've not opened the extension to see what he's done but it's certainly just character matching.
