Here you can find the online help for the Slippy Clerk. Included in the program, there is a short introduction. A list of all functions in detail can be found here.
First you should download the program from the download page. The file is packed into a ZIP archive that you normally should be able to unpack with your computer. If you can not open the file, we recommend the free program 7-Zip which also can handle many other files. You can download this software from the page 7-zip.org for free.
After you have unpacked the program, you can already use it. An installation is not required. If you nevertheless would like to make a shortcut for the program, simply click with the right mouse button on the icon and choose "make shortcut". You can move this shortcut to an arbitrary place on your computer.
The software is offered in several languages. If the language of your operating system has already been translated, the program tries to start in that language. The program language can also be changed during runtime via the Settings > Language Settings menu.
Your first Sequence
Simply start the SlippyClerk and click on the button "Write" on the bottom of the upper area. The row 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 6 7 8 9,10 will appear in the lower box with the name "Output". This row is predefined and for example you can copy this row to your clipboard by using the button below the Output.
Modifying the Sequence
Certainly this series is already quite nice, but maybe you also want to write other series. Just try a little bit around in the settings at the top to get used to the application. For example, you can change the text in front of or behind the number. At the moment, there is no text in front of the number defined, but a comma and a space after the number. Simply type any text or space in the boxes and then output them together with the number to see what happens. In addition, you can also vary the starting point and the endpoint of the sequence, the distance between each number, you can change the padding to a specific length, or use decimal places. Just try a little bit with the individual possibilities, nothing can go wrong and in the preview you can always see the current result.
So far, we have been working with number sequences. If you click on "Letter Sequences" at the top of the main window, you change the mode and can write a series of letters instead of numbers. The functionality is the same. Instead of defining the beginning and the end of your series with a number, you can now define a letter.
The third mode of the SlippClerk are the multiple sequences. This mode makes it possible to combine any number of text elements, number sequences or letter sequences and to output them as often as you want one after the other. At the top left you can define your text elements, number sequences or letter sequences and then click on "Add". As a result, the respective element appears on the right side in the box "Elements". From these elements later your series is composed. Under "Repetitions" you can now define how often all your defined elements should be written consecutively. Each repetition counts each element up or down by the defined increase.
