Re: Table Format for Sort by date?

I'm glad you figured something out :) As you discovered, using a normalized fixed-width date format where the most significant numeric date components appear first is the correct solution. I wonder if there's a way we can improve Nisus Writer here. It would be nice if we automatically detected dates...

Re: Print specific pages

will all the valuable macros posted in topics like the present one be added to the official macro repository? I'm asking because I went through the repository list but now I'm afraid I'm missing some good macros scatterd through the forum. I'm really glad the macros were helpful :) You're right tha...

Re: spell check not refreshing

This seems to be a new bug in version 3.0.3. The Language palette doesn't always refresh itself automatically. You can force a refresh in a variety of ways (eg: resize the palette), but naturally that's quite a nuisance. We'll definitely get this fixed for the next software update. Thanks for lettin...

Re: Print specific pages

All I had to do was connect the printer, open Terminal, enter the lp command for selecting a range of pages (see link in my previous posting), drag the file from the Finder and drop it into Terminal, then execute. It worked, even for printing a couple of non-consecutive pages. Ah that's great! Than...

Re: Print specific pages

The print dialog options to print a range of pages using the "from" and "to" fields is standard. It's something provided by the system. The extended options in Word are indeed a custom feature provided by Microsoft. I was going to offer another potential way to come at this problem from the AppleScr...

Re: Non breaking Paragraph Marker

This is an awkward task to finesse. Vance outlined some of the problems, and I don't see any ideal solutions. There's certainly nothing like a "paragraph joiner" character to let you run together two paragraphs with separate paragraph styles. That said a macro or two could certainly help here, as Ad...

Re: can't edit outline (list) style

That's correct and sounds like a perfectly fine way to achieve what you want Tom. You can apply both a list style and a paragraph style to your text so they combine their formatting. The list style enforces the list item (eg: numbering) and the paragraph style enforces the spacing and other formatti...

Re: can't edit outline (list) style

Hello Tom, and thanks for the question. List styles can control some aspects of the text to which they're applied, but it's limited to the list item itself (the number, letter, or symbol at the start of the list paragraph). In this way you can use list styles to control the list item's indent, font,...

Re: Merge documents: name for individually saved files

The user guide definitely needs some additions and corrections with regard to the file name template used by mail merge. I'm sorry for the confusion. But yes, you can customize the file name that's used for each mail merge record. As you discovered you want to enclose the desired merge property name...

Re: Sick Document

Since you feel this is a bug in Nisus Writer we'd be happy to take a look at your files to confirm or deny that hypothesis. Can you please share both of your files with us somehow? It would be best if we could see both the smaller file and the larger file. Since one of your documents is very large y...

Re: Sick Document

The other Nisus documents were not reacting to any of this so once again, I still think something else is going on here. The difference might be explained by the way in which you originally inserted images. If you just link to the image then its data won't be stored in the document; only a referenc...

Re: Sick Document

Your screenshot of the tracked changes options window shows that you do not have tracking enabled. So that's unlikely to be a problem. It's still possible your file has tracked changes that were recorded earlier, but that's unlikely, especially if you didn't turn it on. However, your screenshot of t...
