Re: is it possible to easily convert tables to text?

And I just noticed that Table > Select > Table works correctly across multiple tables. (I have always been using Select All (twice) to select tables, but that only works on a single table.)

Re: is it possible to easily convert tables to text?

You have to *select* the table (not just click inside it) for Copy Table Text to have any effect :)

Re: PowerFind question

The trick to doing this in one go, is to turn what you want to do upside down. Replace all em-dashes, with any preceding or following spaces to the pattern <space>—<space>. This will pointlessly replace all the correct cases, but it will straighten out all the wrong cases. To do this make sure you a...

Re: Can a macro address tracked changes?

This macro would seem to do the trick (Test it on a copy, please!).

Code: Select all

$doc = Document.active
$changes = $doc.allTrackedChanges
foreach $change in $changes
	if ! $change.isTextContentChanged
		$change.accept
	end
end

Re: Can a macro address tracked changes?

In principle yes. The Nisus macro language has the ability to access tracked changes. The tracked change object has a .isTextContentChanged property (among others), so it seems it would be possible to distinguish the ones you are looking for.

Re: Caption Text to appear in Table of Contents?

It wouldn't be the most elegant of solutions, but I think you could do the following. Put the text of the caption in a text box as before, but also put a copy in the text and set the colour of the inline copy to white (so it becomes hidden). This would work, but would be pretty inelegant because th...

Re: Help setting new margins on scanned text

Is it possible that the OCR software is using section breaks instead of page breaks? My OCR software does this. My first step with OCRed pages is to do a find/replace "Any break" -> "page break". Other than that I try to work with styles. Define a style (perhaps using the settings from one of the pa...

Re: Find & replace, find text with Paragraph Shading

Hello Ignaceb, Let me first make the following suggestions: On your Find expression let me suggest the following: Use "Start of Paragraph" (This can be found in the "gear" menu under "Special Positions") Instead of repeating the Find express in the Replace expression use "Followed By()" (This can be...

Re: Automatic numbers

This triggers another question: how to style the list style? It looks like the style of the list items depends upon its position in the document and the style in that point. If I select it and choose a style from the paragraph style list it will apply to the list item. Nontheless I would like to se...

Re: Automatic numbers

In NIsus you can make a series of automatic numbers, which remain in order, using a list style. You can use the pre-defined list styles or make your own. If your list will have other text intervening, make sure to check the option to "Continue numbering across document content."

Henry, could you tell me what the various signs mean in the first one? I know it's asking a lot but I really am a newbie, so any help is appreciated. Hello again, Warren. As you say you are a newbie, let me make the following suggestion. Use Powerfind mode to do Find and Replace. In Powerfind Henry...

Re: Find and replace across multiple files

It would also be reasonably easy to modify that macro to work on a pre-selected list of files, or all the files in a given folder, or some collection determined through the document manager. This wouldn't be general purpose, so it would be have to be custom written. But it's not too complicated. If ...

Are you working with Nisus Floating Images? You will need to pay attention to the anchors of the images. Make sure they are the of the same type ("Moves with paragraph" or "Position on Page of ¶"). If they are of the same type, you can select both together and group them. Then they will stay togethe...

Re: Newbie needs some help with macros

Hello Warren, Obviously, to me at least, it would take at least three macros, right? And "obviously" you would be wrong :) As Henry showed it's easy to make a single macro to do both 1 and 2. This macro combines two different Find and Replace actions. Note that you could do either of those two direc...
