It would be great if I could save a tool and its configuration for future use. I'm sure this could be done now with a macro, and that's possibly how I'll do it.

 

The scenario is that we have numerous data inputs that require some finessing to import. Because the field headers are not in the first row, they aren't recognized accurately as comma delimited. But some of our fields also contain commas within the field, so the solution is to add a multi-field formula to replace things like ", Inc." with " Inc." and ", Ltd." with " Ltd."

 

But on occasion I find new text strings that need to be added to the formula, like ", Inc" (without the period) for instance.

 

I use this replacement technique with several workflows, so it would be great to change it just one time and have the other instances updated automatically.

 

Maybe in addition to our Favorites toolbar we could have a Custom or User toolbar where we could save tools along with their configuration.
