POPULAR POST!

In the previous guide, the list in Notepad++ was sorted alphabetically. I found that slightly annoying so I figured out a way to keep the list in order by profit.
(And I guess this will actually be useful, now that free advanced membership was removed.)

Copying the list into Notepad++ is the same. If you don't know how, read the previous guide until this picture:
Spoiler




First, we'll remove all the lines containing the string " NP".
Press Ctrl+H to open the Find/Replace window.
Type ^.*( NP).*$ in the find box and nothing in the replace box.

Make sure you have the correct options selected!

Here's a crude explanation of what the symbols mean (skip if you're not interested):
Spoiler

After you're finished, click the "Replace All" button, and all the lines that had " NP" should be gone now!

Now we will remove the blank lines. But first, we have to remove some of the tabs on a few lines. Press Ctrl+H again to open the Find/Replace window (or just don't close the Find/Replace window).
Type \t in the find box and nothing in the replace box.

Nothing visible should change, but all the tabs are gone now.

Finally, press Ctrl+A to select everything, go into TextFX, and delete all the blank lines.

There you go! Now you have your Abrosia list in descending profit.
(There might still be a blank line at the beginning and the end. Just delete those using backspace or something.)

Edit: I removed a bunch of redundancies...

Cool guide for those who don't have much experience with Notepad++!

For further reading I would recommend people look into macros, which could essentially turn it into a copy and paste situation: http://stackoverflow...cro-for-notepad

Your tutorial should help those who aren't on windows though. :)

Yeah, I use macros in Word. Word lets you have colour, font etc variations, so you could, say, have different font sizes for different prices/profits.

I am doing the 'Load a Manual Shop List' correct? What shop ID do I put in then if all the items are from different shops?

Or does this only work for items for a certain shop because the NeoCodex has an option for using lists provided by the site.

Abrosia lists only work for specific shops

One list should only contain a set of items from that one shop you want to buy from. Then you would insert that shop ID.

Using lists, you can only visit 1 shop. You specify this shop in the shop ID box right above the list place.

You can combine items from different shops in your list, Abrosia will only buy the items in that list that are found in the shop you specify.
But if you do that, it's slower because Abrosia has to search through items in the list that aren't even sold at that shop (which takes time), and you'll miss more items.

Hi does anyone else have the same problem with the \t part ? I can't seem to remove the tabbed lines, so the items in my list are not continuous. Will this affect Abrosia's speed? :/

after i do the \t, the list becomes like this
....


Number Crackers and Cheese

CPMPB Pizza

Honey Glazed Ham

Xweetok Vegetable Soup

Sparkling Blue New Year Juice

.....

I did this a year ago and it was perfectly fine but idk why it doesn't work as well now :\

Here you go!

Copy and paste all the items together into one big list just like you normally would, except instead of using proprietary Windows software and weird-ass symbols to generate your list, just click "Generate List". : )

The magical Regex, for the curious:

/(.+?)\r?\n(?:[\d,]+ NP|U)/

Wow extremely useful, +rep as well, :)

Edit: Everything works fine! the only thing is that if the item starts with the letter U, it'll end up like this:

Black Negg
Purple Negg

ltra Negg
Green Negg
Red Negg

Maybe change /(.+?)\r?\n(?:[\d,]+ NP|U)/ to /(.+?)\r?\n(?:[\d,]+ NP|Unpriced)/?

Heh, yeah, I fixed it. Tried to make the regex as short as possible. : )

I'm a bit confused. I got the same problem as latituded1, but I can't seem to access the app to fix it. Any help would be appreciated.

I just tried it with a bunch of items starting with U and had no issues, so I'm not too sure why you're getting that problem :C
But if you feel like PMing me your list or something, I can format it for you.

I PM'ed you. :)

To be more specific about my problem, when I try to replace , it just comes back with 0 occurences replaced.

Replied C:

I'll assume you're talking about the replacement, since in your list, all prices were gone but some indents remained.
replacement didn't work when I tried either (I'm not a genius in this matter, so I have no idea why :c ! Maybe they didn't qualify as columns?), but experimenting with your list again, any of the three below removed them:
TextFX > TextFX Edit > Reindent C++ code
OR
TextFX > TextFX Edit> Leading space to tabs or tabs to spaces
OR
TextFX > TextFX Edit> Leading space to tabs or tabs to spaces width=8

Perhaps we should wait until an expert on this matter comes, but for now, your list should be fine XD

edit. Can't say \ t
lol

I got the problem again on a new list, but I used your method and it works now. I really have no clue why I have the indenting problem, but it works for me. Thanks bunches. :D
