Re: Delete page breaks

In the Find dialog, click the cogwheel by "Find What", then from the dropdown menu choose "Wild Card" and "Any Break" is in the third section. Or, if it's just a "page break" that you want to remove, you can: simply make sure your cursor is in the "Find" box, then choose Insert > Page Break from the...

Re: NWP and Bookend - Case issues

What format is applied to the bibliography? I have tried 2 different formats: my own that I have built over the years for my AIAA papers and the standard APA 7th that comes with BE with no alterations. Here is what APA 7th looks like (same problem): This is why I think it's a Bookends problem not a...

Re: NWP and Bookend - Case issues

What format is applied to the bibliography? I don't have that problem with italics, but, using "Chicago 15A" I find a few odd stretches appearing in a different font. The same stretches appear on the Bookends even if I change the format, or enter those stretches in Bookends itself. For me, it's eas...

Re: Macro issues …

Martin, Thank you for coming in on this. I've been away from my computer, so couldn't reply earlier. Your version of the footnote macro has solved one of my problems in that the code I was using worked for footnotes, but I couldn't get it to work on endnotes, leave alone in a document which had both...

Re: Macro issues …

I can sort the notes out—it is the ruler in the notes that is not being respected—by selecting a note and choosing "All in this style" from the status bar in the window-foot and changing the ruler which is not too onerous, but it would be nice to automate it so they follow the style sheet. Why do s...

Re: Macro issues …

Worse and worse … I'm running NWP on my last model 17" MBP—i7, 16GB RAM, 2TB SSID, MacOS 10.13.6, the last compatible OS version—and I'm beginning to wonder if that is not fully compatible with NWP 3.1. I have just discovered that PowerFind and PowerFind Pro, when set to find "Any digit", will only ...

Re: Macro issues …

Thanks Philip, I had come to the conclusion that there must be some sort of default text or code in the notes and markers that was not being found. I can sort the notes out—it is the ruler in the notes that is not being respected—by selecting a note and choosing "All in this style" from the status b...

Macro issues …

I know I have the reputation of being negative about macros :lol: , but … I have been looking into my macros, as the one I have always used is highly complex and is beginning to prove slightly ineffective — it was created for Scrivener v. 2, which didn't have styles. What I want macros to do is work...

Re: Section breaks

Thanks Martin. I blush to say I found this by accident a few minutes ago. My cursor must have been in Section 1 all the time before, even though I was looking at lower sections. So all is good from that point of view. I've had to send in a couple of crash reports, but said I would send the file I wa...

Section breaks

When I compile a document from Scrivener, chapters are separated by section breaks. That is fine, because I have two streams of notes, one of which I want as Endnotes at the end of each section, the others as footnotes at the bottom of the page. However, NWP seems to have "This section has different...

Re: Two Languages at the same time

Hello Michael: when you say "check for both languages" I assume that you mean spellchecking? If so, then yes, Nisus Writer can automatically switch between spelling dictionaries as you write in multiple languages. The key to understanding this feature is Nisus Writer's language system .

Re: Strikethrough

Mark, forever the sceptic about macros :wink: Well, he's got a point. If all you are trying to do is apply strikethrough to the current selection, then there isn't much point to a macro. And depending on the task you may be better off using any combination of: a keyboard shortcut, using a character...
