Re: Simple Macro not working

Philip,
You are right! That works. The only problem is that the ruler appears again after I have saved, quit and then reopen the macro. Not a big problem but perhaps a bug?

Thanks again for all your assistance.

Re: Simple Macro not working

OK, sorry it has taken me so long to get back to this. I was waiting for the October text to arrive so I could deal with it all at once. Philip, for the string that I am having issues with I am not pasting, I am using the Save as Macro command. Yes, for the rest I must paste but I'm not having any p...

Re: Simple Macro not working

Thanks for all the quick replies. What part of this result is bothering you? You are getting exactlly the result you should be getting. Is something not working? I should have mentioned that the macroized version does not work. Probably you pasted the macroized code into a document and it took on so...

Re: \s and \n

This is good to know. I used the \s religiously in 6.5 myself. It only found spaces, not returns (\r) or tabs (\t). It's very hard to teach an old dog new tricks.

Simple Macro not working

Another InDesign Tagged Text issue. I am working on a document and need to tag all instances of italic text. Using the Find/Replace dialog I have no problems: Find: .+ (Font Face italic) Replace: <cstyle:Italic>\0<cstyle:> When I macroize I get this: Find and Replace ' .+ ', '<cstyle:Italic>\\0<csty...

Re: Extracting and using style name

Martin, I need both. A paragraph style to set the indents, space before and after, drop cap, first line, font, leading etc. Within the paragraph we then use character styles to modify, bold, italic, small caps, superscript etc. If we have the style name come in with the same format as the text then ...

Re: Extracting and using style name

Martin, I should think these things out before I post. The new macro works, but now I find that I will need to ensure that the InDesign code doesn't take on any of the formatting of the paragraph (bold, italic, etc). My second macro searches for these formats and inserts a code for the character sty...

Re: Extracting and using style name

Kino, I did find one problem. When the InDesign Tagged Text code and the Style name are inserted, they take on the style of that paragraph. This causes a problem when the style is all caps or small caps as InDesign needs to see the code in lowercase. What code would I use to make the inserted text n...

Extracting and using style name

Once again, I am working on a file that will be used in InDesign. The manuscript is set in Pages, using styles throughout. I export out of Pages into RTF and then into Nisus. The macro that I would like to have help creating would look at each paragraph, recognize the applied style, extract that sty...

Kino,
It works! I can't thank you enough. Sorry it took so long to reply, we just finished a huge project and was unable to fully test it out until today.

Re: Help with inDesign Tagged Text

Kino, Martin, Thanks again for all your hellp, but it is still not working. My money is on inDesign getting far too technical in their quest to beat Quark. I can flow my NW Pro text into Quark with no problem. We typesetters like to keep things simple, code it, flow it, make it beautiful. We leave t...

Re: Help with inDesign Tagged Text

Martin, Thanks, I knew there was a better way. I normally would have tried to have the \n inserted as a return and not literally but I was referring back to my 6.5 macros where the return was the actual paragraph icon and not the code. The manual, by the way does not have the quote marks surrounding...

Re: Help with inDesign Tagged Text

Martin, Thanks for your reply. Yes, I have tried all encodings. UTF-8, -16 and ASCII all insert incorrect characters for quotes and apostrophes, by the way. Western Mac OS Roman is the only encoding that will preserve these characters. Is there perhaps some invisible data from the header, that could...

Help with inDesign Tagged Text

Hi, Our company has used Nisus since 1988. We use it primarily to code text for large book projects. We use the powerfind/macro functions to find patterns and type styles and then code them to flow into QuarkXpress, using xpress tags. Nisus Writer 6.5 has served us flawlessly for as long as I can re...
