Re: Adding Fonts to Favorite Fonts Menu in NWP

Again, accidentally discovered how to remove font from Favorites. Dragging it OFF the fonts window removes it. Dragging it onto the ALL FONTS item on the left side of the Fonts window does not remove it as a 2007 post had stated.

Adding Fonts to Favorite Fonts Menu in NWP

I have followed the often cited procedure of opening the font book application, selecting the font I want to add to Favorite Menu (in Format menu), then selecting the gear icon and enabling "add to Favorites".

Re: Library of styles

That helps a lot. Thanks. So it takes a bit of patience to get the "+" sign. Will work through your suggestions. Appreciate your taking the time to explain it in more detail. This should get me out of the woods.

Re: Library of styles

Using your method #1, it lets me select the library and says it's inserting the new style from the style library, however I cannot see the style in the style set of the new document. Strange. This seems like it should be easy, yet it's still eluding me.

Re: Library of styles

Not quite there. How do I drag from Library to the current list of style in the new document I have opened? Note attached screen shot of what happens to me when I try to do that.

Re: Library of styles

Thank you, Philip. Your response was very helpful. Especially method #2. Your entire explanation would be a great addition to the Style section in the User Manual.

Re: Library of styles

Very confused about the Style library concept. What I'd like to do is simply modify the default set of styles that is displayed in a new document to include any new styles I create. For example, I have a specific style I'd like to use for Bullet lists. I defined that as "Bullet" in a new document. T...

Re: How to Find All Non-ASCII Characters

Hi Ray! Nisus Writer can definitely help you with this task. You can use PowerFind Pro (aka: regular expressions / regex) to find all the characters you don't want and replace them with nothing, effectively deleting them. The trick will be in identifying the characters you do want to keep. The basi...

Re: How to Find All Non-ASCII Characters

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Really appreciate the help.

Appreciate the specific answers to my question that were offered in this thread! B...
