This is my library. I forked ctrl-alt-dev’s version and added proper support for arrays and nested groups. Bad news is it’s very slow, especially for tables with a lot of columns.

It theoretically supports arrays of groups also, but I never got around to writing the code to generate a TPS file to test. I don’t think the dictionary editor supports it (for C5.5 and C6 at least), so I don’t know if that’s something that would appear in the wild.

Mark, thank you for creating this thread. I’m not sure how many folks will need it but it’s nice to have this resource in case someone does. I have a side project - a bulk dictionary editor - that I may integrate this functionality somehow.
