You could send it as code using three back-ticks, similar to formatting code here on StackExchange: *word* = word ```*word*``` = *word* (Note: it will use a monospace font).

Yeah, it did.

I suggest you quote it instead. '*245*648464885838#'

=ARRAYFORMULA(PRODUCT(--REGEXEXTRACT(A1:A2,"\d+"))) Assuming A1 and A2 has the digits text combination.

Google Search is geared up to return ‘hits’ that are the same as or similar to search terms. It has so much data that a list of “what I don’t want” rather than “what I do want” would be near infinite or useless. Search has only one exclusion operator (-) and that is mainly for text (ref) though it can be used to negate some other search options, such as site:...

Try wrapping your posts in a div tag, it won't affect the layout and I found that helps when WP tries to add characters to my posts

Enter any text in this web site and get it translated as big block characters in different styles. ╱╱╱╱╱╱╱╱╱╭╮ ╱╱╱╱╱╱╱╱╱┃┃ ╭━━┳━━┳━━┫┃ ┃╭━┫╭╮┃╭╮┃┃ ┃╰━┫╰╯┃╰╯┃╰╮ ╰━━┻━━┻━━┻━╯ Just need to click on the tabs on top for selecting style: Flip, Bold, Blocky, Bubble, etc. For example: TArty - Generate big artful text signs Carty - Generate BIG text art signs ...

It is done using block element characters that look like they spell another word: █▬█ █ ▀█▀ It is actually an ASCII art with the following characters: █ ▬ ▀ It can't be used to spell all letters of the alphabet, but you can try. Other characters can help as well. Here I just wrote the first part of your username: █ ╔╦╗ I gave up because the R is hard to ...

As Ben Collins writes in his Blog you can extract all letters and concatenate them in reverse order using an ArrayFormula: Use =ArrayFormula(concatenate(MID(A1,LEN(A1)-ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A1)))+1,1)) to reverse the content of A1. This will not trigger your Google apps limits as easily as the script solution. -> example sheet

Also: Text, Alignment, Vertical - A rotation handle has also been added. In addition, on the "Text" pane, there is a button with 3 up arrows you can use to switch between text directions:

Sounds like the =SPLIT function would do what you need. Given that A1 contains the text 1 coffeeextradark 240gr, then =SPLIT(A1, " ") (notice the space between the quotation marks) will split the text into three cells: 1 | coffeeextradark | 240gr

You can type text into every single shape. Just select one on your diagram and start typing. Also, you can double click anywhere in space on a diagram to add text there.

In diving through the settings again looking for "keyboard shortcuts" options mentioned by w3dk, I found in "options > settings > message format" the option "Compose message in this format: HTML / Plain text" which was set to what seemed to be the default, "HTML". Changing it to "Plain text" removes many text formatting features including indent & un-...

This is answered with respect to Outlook.com, not Outlook Web Access - sorry, my mistake! This would seem to be a conflict on Mac OS X only. On Windows, Ctrl+Left Arrow and Ctrl+Right Arrow are the standard keyboard shortcuts for moving forward/back one word (not Alt). And consequently hold together with Shift to make a selection. These work the same at ...

You could add a space between the asterisk and the word, like * that *

I've found this plugin: Hide This - by Andrés Villarreal but I just noticed that only paid hosting can try plugins on Wordpress.com

Here's what I wound up doing (though I would still love to see an in-place solution, by which I mean one that doesn't require the use of additional cells): I created two additional tabs (worksheets). In the first I put =split(A!A1," "), which yielded a row of words, one per cell. I called that worksheet "split". In the second I put =if(not(regexmatch(text(...

The way I fix it only in the live page is by adding a special tag to each Arabic post (for example tag arabic) then in theme CSS I add: tag-arabic { direction: rtl; } You can add that CSS line through your theme (most new theme settings have a page where you can add custom CSS). For the WYSIWYG text editor, you can use this plugin: https://wordpress.org/...

You basically have two ways to add plain text: Double click on the canvas (or hit Ctrl+Shift+X) to insert a non-linkable text block, and start typing Insert the text symbol (from General menu), and start typing Any element can also have text, or be replaced into a pure text element by Alt-dragging the text element onto the other element. Do note that the ...

You can simply put a text stencil (the 4th stencil in the "General" group) where you need the additional text. No need to paste from anywhere.

ASSUMING the weekdays will always be abbreviated exactly as shown, are the entire cell content (not part of a longer string) and data is in ColumnA, the following may serve: =ArrayFormula(sum(countif(A:A,{"Mon","Tues","Wed","Sun"}))) with the insertion of other search strings to suit.

Google Mobilizer provides mobile-friendly version of most webpages. You can adapt this Google Mobilizer Bookmarklet that I wrote from myself to view just the text of web pages or adapt Chrome/Opera's search provider feature to make a URL open automatically with Google Mobilizer. Google Mobilizer will not mobilize a page if the page is already a mobile page, ...

It depends what you mean by "text editor". If you want an osx gmail client that has solid, wysiwyg editing capabilities (and a really nice user interface, try Sparrow. Google bought them, but it still seems well-supported enough. If you meant a true plaintext editor, there are a ton, but I find both Byword and iaWriter to be minimal enough to kill ...

One solution I found is to use TextMate's Unwrap paragraph function. Copy text from Gmail, paste into TextMate, then go Text->Unwrap paragraph.

As Dillie-O mentioned, they intentionally prevent text selection. This is annoying for those of us who select text as we're reading. Getting around this is easy--just paste the following into your browser's javascript console: document.onselectstart=null;
