Re: Mysterious Control Character

While the question has obviously been well answered by now, I did want to answer one point. When I do that, the character is replaced by "\x". I'm pretty sure you are not looking at the result correctly. Ulrich's character was in a gigantic font so it was hard to see. But what you get when you use t...

Re: Mysterious Control Character

Ulrich, Adrian,

I selected the character and I used Transform Text:Convert Character Codes:To Unicode Points

Re: Mysterious Control Character

The character code says it's #202C which Unicode explains as "POP DIRECTIONAL FORMATTING".

I'm pretty sure you can delete it, if you don't need it.

Re: Formatting text of a cross-reference

Cross-references are supposed to take on the formatting of the text they are inserted into.
But in the preferences under appearances you can adjust the way they are visible. The default is that they are hidden but you can toggle them on.

Re: Macro and Powerfind

Is there a way with Powerfind to find some text and assign it to a variable that I can later use in either a prompt or a new find and replace command? Yes. First a bit about using $variable = … with find expressions. Note that you are using a 'a' option with your expression. This makes your express...

Re: Macro and Powerfind

I would like to find everything from "Text28... to the double quote just before "Text 29... and just delete it. Is there a find or capture until I get to a certain character option?? Look in the Match menu (of the gear menu in the Find dialog) for Followed by So you can write: Find and Replace @Str...

Re: Macro and Powerfind

Hello Doug, and welcome to Nisus. Adrian has already pointed you to a useful section in the manual. I just thought I'd a few more pointers. In case it wasn't clear, there is no need to switch to PowerFind Pro to turn a find/replace command into a macro. You can macroize the expression in the PowerFi...

Re: Navigator Appearance Preferences

Hi Matt,
Not sure what is going wrong for you. It might help to position the windoids to the side so you can see what is happening. As you can see in my capture the change to the Navigator should take effect instantly.

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 …

Hello Mark, I'm getting a little confused about what the issue is and what you are trying to do. The note reference (in the document) is not really a number. It's some kind of special character. But it does seem to interrupt Find/Replace and can't seem to be found. (I thought this used to be differe...

Re: Macro issues …

And my lack of experience with footnotes shows.
I just tried a simple test and see that the current version of default text does update existing footnotes. In which case these two macros can be assigned to the dustbin of history.

Re: Macro issues …

Hello Mark, Sorry for the trouble with my macros. It might help to be clear on what you are trying to achieve. You call these macros, macros to "regularise Footnote and Endnote styles". That is not actually what these macros do, or indeed are intended to do. These macros were intended to solve the i...

Here is a macro which does the same:

Re: Runaway Macro

Hello Allen, There is nothing wrong with this macro (unless you count it's ante-diluvian syntax :D ) . And when I try it, it runs without a hitch. The macro uses perl to remove carriage returns and reduce strings of spaces from the current selection. As an added benefit :P it will remove (or "flatte...
