Hi Graham, The custom tool really only takes a command, not a shell expression. So in your example "echo %t | sqlformatter.exe" the "|" doesn't do what you think it does - instead it is just passed on as a literal to the "echo" command.
What you should do is put the commands in a ".bat" file, then use that ".bat" file as a custom command. I would advice to go the "%f" route and use a custom script to extract the sql and run it through the formatter. The "%t" might not work at all in combination with the code blocks plugin - at least, I have not tested that. Hope this helps, Jaap On Thu, Apr 30, 2015 at 1:38 PM, Graham Foster <gandalfmeis...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi > > I do a lot of SQL and use Zim for keeping notes on client issues / the SQL > used to investigate issues. > > I have the source code plugin, which does nice highlighting, but I would > like to do reformatting too. > > I have a command line reformatter, but it expects SQL text in – not wiki > format text.
