Re: Invisibly Tagging Text

Could I just point out that Keith Blount, of Scrivener fame, spent a long time trying to find a way to make text—in the case of Scrivener, inline annotations and footnotes—invisible in response to multiple requests on the Scrivener forum? Even the leading engineers at Apple working on the text engin...

Re: Long delays on "Open": display of TOC

I concur with Adryan—I too enjoyed using FileMaker Pro but got priced out of the market—but I would suggest looking at importing it into a Scrivener project. Without knowing how his text is structured—I presume he uses something like headings—he should be able to use "Import and Split", or whatever ...

Re: Apple and RTF

Hi Paolo, While I see your point in relation to Apple no longer supporting RTF in Pages, and that RTF is in essence, somewhat long in the tooth, to me there are issues about changing the native format for NWP. Firstly, I don't think Nisus would contemplate moving to DOCX, since as you point out, tha...

Re: Export to epub problem

To add a bit more to what Þorvarður says—not that I have output anything in ePub, either ... E-readers give priority to the reader over the author in terms of how the text is displayed. The ePub format seems to be a simplified form of html, and readers come with a very limited set of fonts, none of ...

Re: Macro to change to superscript

You need to use the "Format > Baseline> Superscript" … that does it for me. If you use a button on your toolbar, that is on your document, not the find dialog, and clicking it takes you back to the document and so doesn't apply the superscript in the find dialog.

Re: Macro to change to superscript

I have found using Powerfind Pro better when trying to do attribute replacement. Perhaps worth a try; if you just switch your S&R to Powerfind Pro, you shouldn't have to retype your strings.

Re: Nidus Writer Pro file in Application Support

Hold down the option key, click on the "Go To" menu, and you'll find "Library" has appeared on the menu, choose that and the library will open. Navigate to "Preferences" and you'll find it there.

Re: Manage styles list?

Thank you very much, Martin, and for your personal communication. I would hope that many others will find this macro useful. From this or other discussion, I learned about the "Import from Style Library…" option—familiarity breeds contempt … I'm so used to using NWP that most of what I need to do ha...

Re: Manage styles list?

I remove unwanted styles by going to Stylesheet view, highlighting the ones I want to remove—.doc(x) files imported from Word are littered with huge numbers of unused and weird styles—and tapping the <delete> key. I have also come round to the position, that for my own work, rather than making lots ...

Re: Special Characters: Mixed Fonts

Seems @adryan is on OSX 10.9.5, whereas @Þorvarður is on 10.11.3? Yet another downside to the way OSX is going?

Edit one time.

Re: How to automatically apply styles to imported document?

Here you are guys … my Scrivener --> NWP workflow. I'm sure I've made omissions or not been clear in places, so get back to me if necessary. Hope it helps anyway. It seems the zipped .scriv project is too big for this forum software, so. If you PM me with an email address, I'll find a way of getting...

Re: Strange things happen when opening a PDF document into N

I have thousands of documents from previous word processors that I converted into PDFs so that I can search the entire text with DEVONThink, or Spotlight. When I open an old PDF document into NWP, some very strange things happen: ---about one in ten lines, but not all, have lost the spacing between...

Re: How to automatically apply styles to imported document?

Thanks, Mark. That is a VERY effective method. I had started groping my way forward by means of Powerfind, but your approach is much better than anything I had found this far. Many thanks, again. Francisco My pleasure. Most of my texts start life in Scrivener and are then exported to RTF and opened...
