Suppose we have the following two sentences:

Should I buy an iPad 2
Should I buy an iPad

So I want to set TBS to spin them automatically to the followings:

Should I buy an {iPad | iPad 2}
Should I buy an {iPad | iPad 2}

I played with "My Favs", by setting the following:

iPad -> {iPad | iPad 2}
iPad 2 -> {iPad | iPad 2}

But then below is what I got, there is an extra "2" in the first sentence:

Should I buy an {iPad | iPad 2} 2
Should I buy an {iPad | iPad 2}

Any idea? I've long articles so I don't want to update them all manually...

Thanks.

TBS cannot work with | character in the text. Use some other character in its place and after in the spun version replace that proxy character with | character.

This is the only way.

Oh there's some confusion here. The "|" character is supposed to be generated by TBS. It is not in my original text. I use the "|" character just to explain what I expect to get generated by TBS.

I mean the following is in my original text:

Should I buy an iPad 2
Should I buy an iPad

I set My Favs for each of the following terms to two possible spun text below:

iPad -> iPad, iPad 2
iPad 2 -> iPad, iPad 2

And the following is the text generated by TBS. There's an additional "2" at the end of the first sentence. Any setting that I can make TBS do according to what I want?

Should I buy an {iPad | iPad 2} 2
Should I buy an {iPad | iPad 2}

Many thanks.

I am sorry for the confusion.

| character is used as a delimiter by TBS; so it cannot handle that as a text to work with or output. If you want XYZ| ABC as output you have to fr example get XYZ#ABC as output and then replace # with |.

Do you get the idea.

Now I presume you want that | to be part of synonyms to be generated by TBS. In that case it will involve your MyFavorites that must have the same synonyms. In that use # or any other character in place of |.

This is what I mean.

Thanks for the response, but I'm sorry, my question was misunderstood....

Please don't focus on the | character, it is not the point in my question. I know | is used as delimiter to split the spun text in TBS. For example, when I input "one two three" in TBS, and press Everyone's Favorites, it outputs "{one|1|one particular|a single|a person|an individual} two three". So the | character is generated by TBS. I mean the same in my original question, the text "Should I buy an {iPad | iPad 2}" is generated by TBS, and | is exactly the delimiter.

Ok, let me try to rewrite my question again, hope you can know what I mean this time.

So I mean I already set the following in My Favs:

iPad -> iPad, iPad 2
iPad 2 -> iPad, iPad 2

I input the following two sentences to TBS:

Should I buy an iPad 2
Should I buy an iPad

TBS generates the following ( | is the delimiter here):

Should I buy an {iPad | iPad 2} 2
Should I buy an {iPad | iPad 2}

My main point is about the extra "2" in the first sentence. I think in both sentence, TBS replace "iPad" with "{iPad | iPad 2}". This is correct for the second sentence. But for the first sentence, what I want TBS to do is to replace "iPad 2" with "{iPad | iPad 2}".  I think TBS see the phrase "iPad" first, so it is spinned first, not the phrase "iPad 2" get spinned.

Any idea? Thanks in advance.

Oh sorry, I just did more test and found TBS is working correctly now.

I found it is problem of my original input text, there is extract characters after the term, like there's an extra "s" in the first sentence:

Should I buy an iPad 2s
Should I buy an iPad

So that's why making TBS not working as I expect. So I get to do some update to my original text.

Problem solved, sorry for all the confusions, and thanks for all helps.
