How to remove positive (+) sign from a number?


    Aug 15 2011 | 5:38 pm
    Just wondering if anyone knows how to remove a positive (+) sign from a float number? e.g +0.47 to 0.47
    I've been using the "fromsymbol" function to remove the negative (-) sign, but cant seem to find anything to remove positive.
    Without removing the (+) sign, number boxes, sliders, etc. wont read the number.
    Many thanks!

      [regexp [+] @substitute 0] will work but there may well be a better way :)

      Someday, I may learn regexp, but in the mean time here's a brute force way:
      Where are the + signs coming from, anyway?
