sentences as items

I don't know if this will work with itemDelimiter, but
I used this trick in version 2.0 with the new
lineDelimiter property. It worked well.
What I did was put a special character at the end of
each sentence (NumToChar(160) on Windows and
NumToChar(202) on Mac). This character looks just
like a space when displayed on screen, but it isn't
really a space. Then I set the lineDelimiter property
to that character. It worked perfectly. You might be
able to do the same thing with itemDelimiter.
Hope that helps.
