    Just digging into FL, and a bit confused by a few things. First off, Im trying to write spun tweets, but it tells me every time that I'm over 140 characters when I use spintax. I'm not, though. All the variations combined are, but not the output.

    In other words, I write:

    {Check out|Look at|Come see|You won't believe} this {new|awesome|hot|wicked} {song|track|single|music}. {Definitely|Undoubtedly|Certainly|For sure} worth {a listen|checking out}. Can't wait to {hear|listen to|check out|preview|groove to|experience} what's {next|coming|not out yet}

    ... and it tells me I'm over character limit even though any possible actual spin is below character limit. I'm assuming this is because it is counting every single character of the entire spintax... but this is making it impossible to do any real spun tweets.

    This is my first swing at FL, so I may well be missing something. How do I fix this?

    we all get it, there software has lots of down falls, for example if u copy the settings to all the accounts it cant for some reason tell that account A has already followed user 1 so dont follow it 1000 times with all the other accounts, very annoying

    Yes it can. Just read about that in the user manual. Forget exactly where it is, but it has that exact feature.
    I would like a few more features personally, but dev has been very good about answering q's. He actually already answered this one for me too. Just have to create text file with each spintax tweet on separate line, and import... this overcomes the character count issue.

    try to make the spintax with different text editors, some of them put extra line breaks where they shouldn't when the document gets saved, eventually it will work, the best one for this purpose is the built-in windows notepad

    or alternatively you can try to output all the results of your spintax and insert one tweet in each line of a text file, you'll have a long ass text file more than likely depending on how long and well-spun the spintax tweet is, but at least it will work for sure

    Good to know. thx.. Yeah, I'm just using notepad. I figure the closer I can get to just plain text editor, the less possibility of some sort of rich text feature screwing something up.

    In my case, that would be one LLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGG file as I've got thousands of permutations per tweet.
