I’ve spent part of this afternoon working on proofing a fresh chunk of the translation of Ibn Abi Usaibia, History of Physicians. I’m beginning to find that I need to make global find and replaces in each chunk for the same sorts of things: Abu needs to become Abū, Air to become Alī, Ibrāhfm change to Ibrāhīm, and so on. Unfortunately Finereader does not give me any macro facility; I have to hit Ctrl-H and go through as much of the list as I can remember.
What is needed, obviously, is a script. Or else a macro facility, or some kind of automation. It needs to operate by recording what I do, and then be editable.
Anyone got any suggestions? I have tried AutoIt and AutoHotKey, and neither has the recorder facility. AutoHotKey claims to have it, but it is not in fact installed.
