Re: Highlinting Indexed text

is there a way to highlight indexed text or otherwise mark it so by just looking at some text I can see at a glance whether it has been marked for indexing?

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

Thanks for explaining the double pipe "or" operator, Martin. Very well explained. It's always fun to read something sharp from Twain […] I have German some heritage myself, but I certainly don't take any offense! I do find German compound words to be very practical The Twain text was actually meant ...

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

Hello Philip and Martin, Thank you both for valuable help. Before I jump in at the deep end, I would first like to address some of Philips corrections and suggestions. The Find command will return the number of find hits, which in this case should always be 1. It seems I had forgotten about that. Th...

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 $theFoundCharacter = Find @Text<\X>, 'rE' #$theFoundCharacter = Find "(...

Re: Automatic Ordinals?

superscripting the ordinal is not really a good thing
Sorry about that. I thought you wanted it superscripted. :–)
We'll have to delete $loc1 then and everything that follows to fix that. :–)

Re: Automatic Ordinals?

I frequently use a custom time string […]: "Dated this 3rd day of March, 2021". It's tedious […] to type that in every time Hello Vanceone, Here is a simple macro that should do what you want. Assign it a handy keyboard shortcut, such as commandKey dd. You can also place a button with this macro in...

Re: How to use the command 'Scan Document' in a longer macro

It's sometimes helpful in an AppleScript script to interpose a "delay" command Thank you Adrian for reminding me of this. After adding a delay command now, Bookends does not crash, but the second macro is not carried out, just like before. Let's wait and see what Martin has to say about this. Not b...

Re: How to use the command 'Scan Document' in a longer macro

Hello Philip, "Scan Document" may look like a Nisus command to you, but Nisus just hands off control to Bookends Yes, that's exactly what I though. I imagine we are watching toss juggling: two jugglers with clubs face each other, one tosses a club, the other responds and tosses back another club and...

How to use the command 'Scan Document' in a longer macro

I use Bookends as a reference manager. I would like to be able to run a macro which looks like this: Scan Document Clean up Do some other stuff ... 'Clean up' is the name of a macro that tweaks the formatting, deletes gremlins, etc. The problem now is that the macro stops after the document has been...

Re: Page numbers and Screen Splits

Hello Vanceone and Adrian

Maybe a bug in v3.2?
I'm using version 3.1 on High Sierra, and all page numbers are correct, as far as I can see.

Could the macro be amended so that the default red can always be found?
That's it. Now it works like a charm!
Thank you.

Re: Is "Find Next" possible by attribute (text colour)

Hello Martin, thanks for the macro "‪Find Color Groups macro‪". It's very useful. After testing it briefly, it seems to find all colors except red , and by "red" I mean Format > Text Color > Red. However, if the hue is slightly changed, it is found. Could the macro be amended so that the default red...

No, multiple notes per line is also in version 2.
Sorry for not being more precise. I meant the ability to adjust the 'Horizontal Spacing'.

Re: Footnote spacing in 2nd line wonky when centered.

I’m using version 2 of NWP That is the problem. I think the feature 'Horizontal Spacing' for Multiple notes per line was introduced in v.3.1. Spaces are used instead of tabs, just like you want. The default space is 2.1 cm. For my taste that's too big; 0.5 seems nice. The version 3 has some other s...
