What I might like to be able to do is:

Set a trigger for "* utters the words 'judicandus dies'*" to appear as "* casts cure light*" and see "GuyA utters the words 'judicandus dies'" as "GuyA casts cure light"

Set triggers for:
'*, Patron of the Light*' to appear as [KNIGHT]
and
'* the Dreaded*' to appear as " - 18 Berserker"
and see:
[ dwarf ] <PK> GuyA the Dreaded, Patron of the Light
as
[ dwarf ] <PK> GuyA - 18 Berserker [KNIGHT]

You could omit the entire line from output and replace it with your own.

Yeah, but I was just thinking it might be easier if it was a "yes, change it" checkbox and a "what should it look like" text box..

Either way, just a suggestion.

This has been requested before. It is hard because a line might have colour changes. What happens if there is a colour change (red to green for example) in the middle of the word you want replaced? What colour is the replacement word?

The color of the start of the word. I really doubt anyone really expects more than that. Your replacing it anyway and maybe coloring it something else too. If I had a word that changed every other letter, I would personally suicide my character on that mud and find one not run and coded by fools that use that kind of silly stuff in the first place. lol

And even if it was like that, being able to imbed the color in the replacement, like \[1;32ma\[1;33mb\[1;34mc, as the 'replacement text', instead of the complex mess you have to do know would make life a lot easier for any of use that know what we are doing. For those who have no clue what they are doing, capturing a line, omitting it, running a script, splitting the line up in the script, then feeding it all back out through colourtell and colournote is if anything *less* easy to explain and comprehend than:

1. Set the trigger to 'replace'.
2. Use \[<ansi> to add colors.

Trying to explain the existing way to a complete newbie gives me a major headache, especially in cases where is may be borderline impractical.

Gotta agree, maybe if you could find an easy way for the user to specify colour that would be a good addition but just the basic check box and text box combo would be a great improvement to the current way.

I am still reluctant to do it if a word change spans colour boundaries (eg. part of the word might be an MXP hyperlink and part not). However possibly a change to text that is in the same style run might be easy enough.
