Feature idea

Currently Nisus allows really easy assignment of keyboard shortcuts to styles. I was wondering if something similar for macros could be added as well. One idea is that this might be achieved through the Document Manager. First the Document manager could be made to allow easy assignment of keyboard s...

Re: PowerFind question

Just to be clear here: The Capture() brackets creates capture groups. You can have as many such groups as you want, and they can even be nested. But not overlapping. The Captured1 , Captured2 , etc. are variables. They refer to the capture groups that you create with the capture brackets. You can us...

Re: PowerFind question

Your latest explanation is quite helpful. What effect does the code in "capture( any word ) captured1" have? Captured1 refers to the first capture group. So this has the effect of asking for "any word" and then a space followed by the same "any word". So the effect is of looking for places with the...

Re: "Go to Next Comment" fails with nested comments

Aha! In a footnote, one round of Select All selects all text in all footnotes. Needing to apply it twice for comments is clever, but inconsistent? Well, it's due to the difference in how they are handled. Footnotes all live together inside a single text object (and Nisus "cleverly" uses tabs, retur...

Re: PowerFind question

Martin, Thank you for what you wrote. I was confused by the meaning of <0+>. Sorry. I guess my explanation was a bit too short. The real power of Nisus' Find/Replace lies in those pop-up menus to the left of the Find Box. What specifically do the <0+> in your attachment do? The Repeat commands appl...

Re: "Go to Next Comment" fails with nested comments

To be clear, my "nested comments" are multiple comments applied to the identical text range via the "Add Comment" command. Ah! I thought that Nisus didn't allow this kind of thing. (I really don't use comments too often.) I think Nisus doesn't allow such things to be created, but it probably respec...

ForEach $comment in $doc.allComments $range = Range.new(0, $comment.text.length) $selection = TextSelection.new($comment.text, $range) $doc.setSelection($selection) Menu 'Paragraph Style:Comment' End Is there a more elegant way to do that? Note that in the macro reference under Document Object Comm...

Re: "Go to Next Comment" fails with nested comments

Anyhow just one more comment to the "Go to Next Comment" you mentioned and used in Martin's macro. That command does work for nested comments. I just tested it. However Martin's macro doesn't find them, since it uses the expedient of placing the selection after the comment to look for the next one. ...

Re: "Go to Next Comment" fails with nested comments

Well as pointed out on the other thread you should be able to find the answer in the file Help > Macro Language Reference . There you'll find there is a document propery .allComments which will return the comments and then you should be able to loop through them with code $doc = Document.active fore...

Re: Can a macro address tracked changes?

Taking a wider view, is there a reference somewhere for all these macro properties? I'm extremely grateful for the help, but I could probably have figured this one out myself if I'd been able to consult a list of what's available. Help > Macro Language Reference What do you mean by "Text Language C...

Re: BE font

The font tag is generally my preferred solution as well. But there is one little problem. The "font" includes not just size and font-face, but also things such as Italic, Bold, etc. So depending on the situation you may not get all the things you want. Another option are the Kino "Select-by" macros ...
