Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
I would love to combine what others may use and contribute to comprise the ultimate verbosity-trimmer.
Cleans up, collapses down, and removes multiple spaces, carriage returns, long-winded text, and unnecessary spelled out phrases like
"by the way" => "btw"
"end of day" => "EOD";
"Call back" => "CB";
"Talk To" => "tt";
4:00PM => 4PM, etc.
Read thru and customize before you use so that you don't lose any official text you needed. There is no undo obviously but this can cut file sizes down quite a bit with a lot of text notes, etc.
