Add Text Separator (12d App)

What it does

An application for 12d Model to add text separator to text values. It can be used to format text and labels for documentation and plotting of surveys and designs.


This was originally written to allow users to insert a + for the thousands separator on chainages- e.g. instead of CH 1234.567 display CH 1+2345.567. This application has been expanded to include additional functionality including:

  • define the character(s) to be inserted;
  • specify where the character(s) will be inserted;
  • padding of values with extra digits, e.g. 0+000.000;
  • filtering text to process based on match or ignore masking; and
  • command-line capability.
