Use the mark command to specify certain cards for printing or for special treatment by the go and sort commands.


The card is any card reference.

The condition is an expression that evaluates to true or false for each card in the current stack. Any object references within the condition are treated as pertaining to each card being evaluated, so for example, a reference to a field is evaluated for each card.

The form is one of the following words:

* normal

* characters or character (or chars or char)

* words or word

* string

* whole

If no form is specified normal will be used.

The findString is an expression that evaluates to a string.

The field is any field reference.


You can mark cards either one at a time, by specifying each card to be marked, or in groups, by using the where condition or by finding forms of the mark command. Marking additional cards does not change the mark property of cards that have already been marked.

You use the mark and unmark commands in succession to further narrow down the set of cards. For example, this sequence of commands selects only the cards where the user has asked for help and the request has not yet been fulfilled:

mark cards by finding "Help" in field "History"

unmark cards where the hilite of button "Already Helped" is true

When using the by finding form, the search operates the same way the normal form of the find command does. The mark command searches for cards that contain each word in the findString. The words in the findString must be found at the beginning of a word on the card, but the words do not need to be found together.
