Re: Can't sync documents in iCloud

Usually, I am not using the iCloud for any documents. But Yesterday I opened empty files to store some text, and received an error message, when I wanted to close NW suggesting that I cannot save any files to iCloud, when the software was not bought through the App store. Apple does allow apps like...

Re: Help, after clean install of Bug Sir [sic]

Bit of a blow out, yesterday, apologies. I'd had my second Moderna vaccination on the 7th and was a bit ruff around the edges. No apologies necessary! I'm sorry for the frustrating experience. I'm glad to hear things are settled down and sorted out for you now. Congratulations on getting your vacci...

Re: Help, after clean install of Bug Sir [sic]

Not smiling. Totally Effed. What do you mean exactly? Your strong language implies that maybe you lost access to multiple documents. If so, then my question would be: do your files exist at all? That is, can you see them in the Finder and iCloud? If you don't see the files elsewhere then you likely...

Re: Help, after clean install of Bug Sir [sic]

Let's have you try restoring a few potential points of access in your Nisus Writer preferences: 1. In the Doc Manager pane, choose the desired location for your Document Manager. 2. In the Saving pane, choose a location for "autosaving new documents". 3. In the General pane, choose a location for "s...

Re: Removing Periods after Footnote Numerals

Because in the footnote style sheet, there is an option under "note References" where you can control the period; it appears in the "after text" box. Delete that period and it should delete it. But if my memory serves, this may depend on the version of Nisus you are running. Older versions inserted...

Re: Create array from word list?

Note that the result of this command will be an array of TextSelection objects. You can get the actual selected text from such an object using the property 'substring'. And you can do this for a whole array of such objects using the command with the elegant :P name 'arrayByMakingValuesDoCommand'. T...

Re: Anti-aliasing

Nisus Writer uses a heavily modified version of the macOS text layout engine. This is provided by Apple as part of the system and ultimately it handles fundamental aspects of text display on screen. Microsoft Word and Apple Pages likely use different layout engines. I believe Pages uses WebKit, the ...

Re: How to create a variable for "Any digit"?

A foreign ambassador to Germany visits the German Chancellor Bismarck. Bismarck gives a speech. He speaks loud and is obviously full of emotion. The interpreter remains silent. After five minutes the ambassador whispers to the interpreter: "What's he saying?" The interpreter leans towards to the am...

Re: Choice of colour for StrikeThrough, &c

The very simplest way to highlight your editing changes is to turn on tracked changes . This is an all encompassing feature that tracks text deletions, additions, and replacements, as well as any formatting changes. You'll see each change automatically marked on screen using the current author's col...

Re: How to create a variable for "Any digit"?

I need to find out whether the character that precedes the insertion point is a number or not. In case it's a number, the macro will do some stuff. In case it's not, the macro will do some other stuff. How can I do that? I tried $theFoundCharacter = Find @Text<\X>, 'rE' I think we're a bit beyond t...

Re: How to create a variable for "Any digit"?

I tried this, and although a number was found, it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong this time? $number = Find @Text<\X>, 'E' if $number == "1||2||3||4||5||6||7||8||9||0" prompt "It's a number!!" end The double pipe "or" operator is covered only briefly in the Nisus Writer macro language reference...

Re: How to create a variable for "Any digit"?

$searchRange = Range.new(0, $selection.location) $foundSelection = $selection.text.find('\d+', 'Er', $searchRange ) That's been one of those features that I have been looking for for some time now. Seems it was introduced in NW 3.0 but it slipped by me for some reason. :drunk: I'm glad you'll get s...

Re: How to create a variable for "Any digit"?

There are many ways to skin this cat 🙀 I'd probably want to ask myself: how can I leverage the power of regular expressions (regex). Philip already provided a nice solution that lets you use \d to match any digit. However, I'd prefer to generalize this so your code doesn't have to care about the len...

Re: Table header repeating on multiple pages

I'm afraid not. There is currently no way to automatically repeat table headers on each page. You'll need to manually repeat such table rows, sorry!
