Capture to Editor *part* of a line
 
Is there any way to dump text to the editor other than #CAPTURE?
The mud sends a control sequence, delimiter, and then the text line by line from a file, I'd like to capture just the line by line text and append it to the text Editor (not settings editor) in sequence.

Is this possible via direct manipulation of a hidden editor variable or something else I'm seeing? #CAPTURE grabs the whole line which I don't want.

you could also use the #WIN command for a custom string

#WINDOW windowname {Some string here}
#EXECWIN windowname {#SAYADD {Some string to concetenate on the previous message.}}

Aha... i see the issue, you could kludge it.
First, make the triggers to capture the segment you want to another window, then give that one window a very genneric trigger inside the window object (for the sake of scope).

#TR {*} {#CAP}
