Re: Macro-Bible book name abbreviations

Hello Eric, yes this can be done with a macro. The basic operation is done with Find and Replace and once you get that working you can save it as a macro. In your case you would need to use PowerFind or PowerFind Pro. Since PowerFind does not travel well, I am going to use PowerFind Pro. The basic r...

Re: Save changes doesn't work in Find/Replace window

I have been working with Nisus for a long time, and done hundreds, probably thousands, of find/replace actions. I have never noticed this before. But in terms of work flow F/R is easy to do and it's also easy to mess-up a file using it. From this logic it makes more sense to save before you do the F...

Re: NWP to keep track of files/folders once moved or renamed

One option that would work, is to make your link refer to an alias of the file rather than the file itself. (The alias might be located in a special folder called "MyFileAliases".) I first hoped it would be as simple as selecting the alias when making the link, but unfortunately Nisus is "too clever...

Re: Family Pack

Hello, I know the feeling. I have a bunch of licenses and have in fact lost track, which machine uses which. I just assume that if NWP thinks that the license is wrong it will tell me. So I make a guess and type one in. So far it hasn't complained, but maybe I'm just lucky. However if you want to do...

Re: Replacing list numbers with their values

Generally I would want the macro to select the style itself. Unfortunately there is no easy way to do this, at least with List Styles. Assuming the list style you were looking for was "Number List" the following code would work: ... I'm not sure I understand. Can't you rely upon the user already ha...

Re: Replacing list numbers with their values

A macro like the following seemed to work for me some of the time . It seemed to depend on being run with the cursor not in a numbered paragraph. Perhaps Martin can suggest something better, or at least explain the behavior. I think I can explain the behavior. Basically there are two situations: 1....

Re: Replacing list numbers with their values

Hello David, thanks for commenting my macro :) I really should have done that myself! You seem to have figured things out. Here are a few comments and tips. As you mention the macro documentation does not explain "Lists:Select All Style". That is because it isn't part of the macro language. That com...

Zero-padded auto numbers

Just the other day I noted that Nisus has a numbering option Arabic (01,02,03,04). Am I correct that this is intended to create padded numbers? Unfortunately, this only seems to pad up to two digits.

Re: Macro: convert format markers to formatted text

Hello NisusUser. writing such a macro is possible and is in fact quite easy. The key is to use "Find and Replace". Open "Find and Replace" Select "Using: PowerFind" Enter your opening tag, i.e., "[b]" From the gear menu choose Match > Capture(). The cursor should be between the two parts of the Capt...

Re: Finding a font

It might be worth looking at Kino's famous selection macros, in particular the one for selecting by font. See the macro repository.
