Re: Strikethrough

Mark, forever the sceptic about macros :wink: Well, he's got a point. If all you are trying to do is apply strikethrough to the current selection, then there isn't much point to a macro. And depending on the task you may be better off using any combination of: a keyboard shortcut, using a character...

Re: Strikethrough

Why do you need a macro? Why not just set a shortcut (Preferences > Menu Keys > Format > Strikethrough, where you can set shortcuts for different types of strikethrough, including colour)?

Just wondering.

Re: Beware Catalina

Thanks Martin, I'll install NWP 3.1 on my 2015 5K iMac, which is running 10.15.5, and see how I get on. Have to say, however, that as I've been shielding all this time so haven't been able to take the computer in, but I'm going to have to get it reverted to !0.14 Mojave. As it is, it crashes several...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

I have always done the same as @ToddO for quotes. I also have a "First" style with no indent which follows from any heading or title, and is itself followed by "Normal", so my "Quote last" is also followed by "First".

Otherwise I’m sure you could use Graphic Converter to batch convert all your picts to jpeg or png.

Re: removing attribute overrides in Footnote Note Style

Yes, thank you again, Philip. I'm not adverse to clicking in the footnote area, but I have a macro—thanks to a lot of work and help from Martin!—that imports a style sheet, marks all the Chinese and English as being in the appropriate languages and does various other cleaning up operations, so @shmu...

Re: deleting paragraph style B and replacing it with paragraph style A

Two other points might interest you, @shmuel: 1) You can access "All in Style" from the paragraph Icon in the status bar at the bottom … Screenshot 2019-10-26 17.04.23.png 2) A while back, I think it was Martin who posted a macro to remove unused styles. I can't find it quickly in the repository, so...

Re: removing attribute overrides in Footnote Note Style

Philip, thank you so much for this. Do you know that in all my years of using Nisus Writer (Pro), it had always puzzled me why "Footnote Style" did not appear on the style lists, and why, on opening RTFs from Scrivener, I had to select all footnotes and set the style parameters I want! At least I no...

Re: Beware Catalina

Heartily endorse that!

I normally update my OS at .1 or .2 of a new version, but with Catalina I'm going to hold my horses and wait to be sure that all the gremlins have been squashed.

Re: Print specific pages

Have you tried entering something like 3–5, 11–15 or whatever the ranges you need are into that box? I’m on my iPad at the moment with a Samsung printer that doesn’t support air print … so there’s no way I can test it out. That used to be how you set complex page ranges.

Re: Macro to assign style

Can I ask what may be stupid questions? Why do you need a macro to do this? You can very easily create keyboard shortcuts for each of your styles in Nisus Preferences, so why would having to invoke a macro and then a combination of key strokes to select a given style be an improvement? To me it seem...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

This is all very interesting. In the past I’ve done such padding manually, which is time consuming. I’ll try the macro later, but looking at it, I have one suggestion: would it be possible to modify it so that the amount of padding could be set at run-time rather than being a given amount (12pt) cod...

Re: Black Border

It's anything but sunny here in London, but you can draw a box round the name using the shape tool, and set it to have no fill, which should do what you want.

:D

Re: Old documents in Dock

On the other hand, I have just tried by editing a file, making changes to it by running a macro, changing the styles of paragraphs, then shutting down NWP. I normally open all my apps using Spotlight, which also lists the recently opened files, and the newly saved file is listed, and if I open NWP w...
