I have an instance parameter that is a number prefixed with a Type parameter that is text. I would like to be able to select the element and update the text prefix only when the Type changes without changing the number. I am able to achieve this when one element is selected but not when multiple are selected. I feel I hit a wall. HELP. Thanks in advance.
Have you tried regex from the clockwork package?
I would also recommend using the regex package from clockwork. Be sure to use string nodes so every character is interpreted literally.
For example, a pattern to match all prefixes would be:
\w+ (Matches one or more word character)
And a pattern to match all digits would be:
\d+ (Matches one or more digit character)
