Is there a way to create a printf procedure in AI2 ?
Or would it be better done through an extension ?
My thought process seems to be over complicating it.
My thought, build a list of different substitution characters, %1, %2, %s, etc.
Search for those items in the text string, if found, figure the place marker in the text, and replace the text with the corresponding new text, then go to the next item found...
