Macro language syntax or bug?

Today I was experimenting with macros in NW 2.0. I thought I remembered that one should be able to write something like this: $docname = Document.displayName But this kept giving me errors. I know that one can write the following $doc = Document.active $docname = $doc.displayName and this works fine...

Re: NWP 2, panes, and views

I certainly agree with your point that it would be nice to have the ability to have separate views. And I have no doubt that the team has put it on their to do list for the future :) As for the workaround: it's true that the current view switcher button on the toolbar can't be reassigned. One could ...

Re: Pagination at top right corner

Yes, but Hamid you overlook the fact that the user also wanted the page number "to the right" of the header. That can only be done with a considerably uglier solution. Essentially you would have to move the page margin over, and then for all paragraphs you would have to move the text wrap to the lef...

Re: NWP 2, panes, and views

thanks, but this is a tad too clunky for everyday use: wouldn't it be simpler if NW reverted to its old behavior? Really? I'm not sure I follow. You assign the macro a keyboard shortcut or a toolbar button and the functionality is pretty much indistinguishable from whatever way you are doing it now...

Re: NWP 2, panes, and views

As a possible workaround for this problem you could switch views with a macro:

Code: Select all

Draft View
if Menu State “Show Rulers”
	Show Rulers
end
if Menu State “Show Navigator”
	Show Navigator
end
You can adjust the macro to reflect the type of view like.

Re: Changing icons in Safari

Can you post some more specific instructions on what is meant by "completely trash your prior copy of NWP v2"? I downloaded the fixed version and replaced the previous one but my Safari and Mail icons still have the little Nisus man (not that this isn't an improvement :) )

And Nisus doesn't ? It does for me. You can adjust the kind of line you get to separate footnotes from the text if you switch to Style sheet view, and choose the footnote style.

Re: Macros don't work

Hello Windsor,
without some more information it's hard to say anything. Where did you get these macros from? Are they Nisus macros or perl macros? Were you using the same version of Nisus?

Re: Text files + styles = lost work?

Actually perhaps there is room for improvement here. If you open a ".txt" file and then apply formatting, Nisus gives you only the options you show in that box. But perhaps Nisus should also give the option to change the extension and save as .rtf as well. And perhaps that option should even be the ...

"Save as" to a drop box

This may perhaps not be a Nisus problem, but I have noticed that it is not possible to use "save as" to save a file to the drop box of another user. A dialog tells me that I do not have permission for the relevant action. Why is this? Can anything be done about it? (Of course I can first save the fi...

Re: Copying Cell Attributes?

What I would really like to see in this regard is the ability to control these things with macros. I guess there are several ways this could be implemented. If these "styles" were handled in the same way as other styles, then this woud presumably be one possible solution.

Re: Weird paragraph style behavior with TOC

I am pretty sure that one is reproducible, since I was getting it regularly for a while. I'll have to think again about what set of steps I was using at the time to cause it.

Re: Weird paragraph style behavior with TOC

By 'TOC' do you mean the navigator pane? In that case I am pretty sure I have experienced the same thing.
