Re: Indexing NOT to page numbers

Just as an example, maybe you have a document with short named paragraphs, or mini-sections, or numbered verses, etc. and you want to create an index to these section names or numbers rather than pages, then I would recommend doing this task with a macro rather than "Index As".

Re: Indexing NOT to page numbers

I would just like to say here that indexing with "Index As" to some text is really no index at all. It's just a word list. Nisus has a variety of tools that would help you generate word lists of various kinds much more quickly and more automatically. If you want any help with such things you may wan...

Re: converting Pages documents?

I think the Pages format is something particular that can't be opened by others. But there seem to be online converters that you could use to convert it to doc or the docx.

Re: Custom Background Color Shortcut

Hello Matt, You would need to copy the above two line macro for each background color you wanted. You can customize it by changing the hextriplet. You can find the hextriplet for any color you want using the color panel. Just switch to the RGB sliders. Screen Shot 2020-06-30 at 1.24.35 .png Below th...

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: Resize Window (newbie)

Hi Ted,
I guess I thought this was a bit of code you had ripped from a complete macro. :wink:
Of course for this code to work you will have to first define the variable $doc. So for example:

Code: Select all

$doc = Document.active
$doc.windowOrigin = Size.new 780, 50
$doc.windowSize = Size.new 817, 2111

Re: Merging documents

Just back to my original suggestion: Merging the changed docs is not going to work, but displaying all changes together is possible. One version of such a macro can be made very easily using NWP's super-duper Show Find Results command. Here is the resulting macro: Show Tracked Changes (by doc).nwm T...

Re: Merging documents

While what Martin says is of course true, provided all drafts started from the same original, one could write a macro that created an inventory of all the changes and listed them in document order for each of the drafts. These edit lists could then be combined and again sorted by edit location order...

When I click the plus button in the document manager, I get three options, add custom group, add folder group, and add filter group.
Meaning you don't get a Add Special Group option?
I take it that's the standard behavior. You already have all the special groups, so there are none available.

Re: Links between documents

In the case of the page number there is no delimiter. If I add another slash it just interprets that as another level of file path and looks for the file page2 . Nick, there is supposed to be a delimiter, namely a "?". The "page=XX" is a query in this URL. Also the "Unix file path including leading...

Re: Copy-and-paste table-rows

I'm not sure why you need to to do step 3, but I also don't see why that would hurt. My main question is; you say "This does not work for me." What doesn't work about it? You'll have to describe the problem, if you want some more help. For me these steps work fine. There are other ways you can do th...

Re: Copy-and-paste table-rows

Copy or move?
  1. Select lines 10-19. Make sure to select the whole line(s), for example use <option><command>A to select.
  2. Copy (<command>C) or Cut(<command>X) for moving.
  3. Place the insertion point at the start of the content of the leftmost/first cell in Row 1 of the table
  4. Paste

Re: add line number to a selected text

Limiting such macros to selections is actually a pain, since those selections exist only in the GUI. For that kind of macro, it might make more sense to go with variant 1. But I have adjusted it anyway :D Of course the results will only be as sensible as the selection you run them on. (Should work f...
