  • Text File Actions

    A SUF 5 text file modification command (System Editors) is converted to a "Insert Text Line" action (Action ID 46). With ver this will give an error (#1) if the file does not exist. You have to start with a "File Search" and eventually create the file with the new "Write to Text File" (Action ID 37). THEN you can use the 46-action. In many cases you can use only the "Write to Text File" action (to add text) and skip the "Insert Text Line" action. (The conversion program still relies on the 46-action - and may give an error at runtime.)
    Even better: Use the "Read File Information - Existence". All the possibilities in v6 are almost unbelievableā€¦. But can I read the file creation date?
