Text Checking

  • Problem
  • Updated 2 years ago
Before going into production, I would like to check all the text I have written.

Is there a way to export all texts - for examples callouts - as one?

I would love to make one paste into the Grammarly text checker instead of copying and pasting every single piece of text.

I have written a tool which extracts all the callouts.
See https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsm...
If this isn't enough , I could modify it to export the callouts to a file e.g. .txt

I can certainly export the text into a CSV file and then import it back from a CSV file.
If I were to copy it to the clipboard, and there needs to be a way to separate each callout from the next one. I am unfamiliar with Grammarly.  I can't just separate each  callout from the next one with a simple carriage return, because some callouts contain carriage returns themselves (i.e. are on multiple lines).  I could separate each callout from the next one using a "new page" marker (character 12).  If I were to do that, would that work  with Grammarly? (I need a way to import them back from the clipboard and still know where each callout begins and ends).

Thank you again, Charles. I highly recommend Grammarly to everyone writing English text. There is a free version. Grammarly adds extensions to Chrome, Word, Outlook, etc. In this case, errors are shown and can be corrected in situ. If there is no extension - like with Camtasia products - I can paste the text into the Grammarly editor. If Grammarly detects an error, I will go back to the callout and correct the text manually. CSV is no exact text and would not work - it wouldn't work in Microsoft Word either. A file version would be useful if you want to give away the text to a translator service for example. If you have such a solution, it would work with Grammarly as well.

I have revised CAMLOC.EXE to version 3.0 which allows Copy/Paste to/from the Windows Clipboard and Export/Import to/from CSV file.  Download it at:

Fantastic, Charles. It works like a charm. I am sure this is very useful for many. There is only one issue: The source text shows up as HTML. Example: the double quote is represented as "
Text editors like Microsoft Word or Grammarly treat it as an error.
How is the Destination text supposed to be entered - native or as HTML as well? 
Thank you very much again!

I believe it should be able to handle either " or "

Unfortunately, your great tool does no longer work with Camtasia 9. It may just be the new extension.

I will try to modify it for Camtasia 9 when I get some time. I just acquired Camtasia 9.

Exactly I suggested a similar feature to the Camtasia Product Manager last June. We were talking via webcam and I suggested a method to export all texts to create an index table you can later on, use in Youtube or other websites where you post your videos. Sadly, they did not implement the feature in Camtasia 9. I have a Youtube channel with 2,500,000 million views. I think it is important people developing the software, listen to the customers. There are many kind of customers, not only corporative. Youtubers are a very important part of the Camtasia business, and really they need this feature.

I have modified CAMLOC.EXE to version 4.1 which now supports both Camtasia 8 and Camtasia 9.   (Version 4.0 only supported legacy Callouts in Camtasia 9, not the new Callouts; Version 4.1 supports both types of Callouts in Camtasia 9). Download it at:
