Re: Styling tables

Hi, Hi Rob, I would use the glossary feature. Set up the table, format it, use frames and colors, etc. When you are done, select the table and create a glossary entry. If you do this, you never have to copy and paste the table again. Saves you a lot of time. Þorvarður Thanks for the suggestion... I ...

Re: Styling tables

Hi, Actually you can "place" a table by dragging it (the whole table). space_before_table.jpg Thanks... that's something I wasn't aware of and produces the sort of result I'm after spacing-wise... but it's applied one table at a time and by sight... With 20–30 or more tables it becomes a bit of a ch...

Styling tables

Hi, When placing tables into a document I need to apply 'space after' the preceding element as there is no means of applying 'space before' to the table itself. The same is true for space after a table... it needs to be simulated by setting 'space before' on the following item rather than being dire...

Re: URL list (plain text) to list of hyperlinks

Hi phillip, Thanks for the pointers... I'd actually got something of my own working, but not as efficiently as your suggested solution. Your explanations were also a huge help, throwing new light into the murky areas of the formal documentation. One remaining question... How necessary/feasible is it...

URL list (plain text) to list of hyperlinks

I am completely new to Nisus Pro macros and could use some pointers on this... If I have a list of links, one to a line, in a plain text format, I'd like to paste this into a nisus document and run a macro that will run through the selected lines and add hyperlinks to each one, where the hyperlink i...

Re: Bookmarks & cross-reference text

Thanks, I think I can get that to work. It's not so intuitive, but then neither was my original solution. The more I think about it the more I like the notion of being able to use the name of the bookmark as the cross-reference text... or to give the bookmark an optional 'label' attribute that could...

Bookmarks & cross-reference text

Hi, I've been converting over some old Nisus Classic documents that contain cross-referencing to a list of referenced papers at the end. Typically, where there is a long list of authors I would want the cross-reference text in the body of the document to read something like "J. Smith et al, 1997", b...
