You can also double-click on a tab in the ruler to change the settings of the tab.

Re: inserting a tab in a table cell

I believe the ability to insert a tab in a "tab-context" using <option>-tab is a mac wide standard.

Re: formatting page numbers in NWP 1.4.2

You need to set your document/section to using "Facing Pages". This can be set in the section palette. You will then have independant odd/even headers and footers. The parts that you want to be the same will have to be copied.

Recover and Show

I frequently get the "Recover and Show" dialog. I assume this is because I use the an iDisk and my Nisus preferences get synced across computers, and I have autosave turned on. So apparently when I start up Nisus and it can't find the temporary files created on the other machine (which I probably di...

Re: Can you move tables "free form" instead of rigit alignme

Your best bet seems to be to scroll the table so it is right below the ruler.

But I would like to add my voice to those who would like to see interfaces for these things that can be controlled numerically. Not just the placement, but how about column width and row heights too.

Re: Legal Pleading Paper Help

Presumably you could just make it yourself. Make it as an empty file in Nisus using the regular line numbers feature. Then save as pdf and use that.
I'm upoading my own version of such a (rtf) file here.

Re: Copy U.S. English QuickFix list to other language?

Actually what Quickfix really needs is a "All Languages" option. Binding symbols to a language option is not ideal.

Re: New to Nisus Writer Express - with a problem

Hello and welcome to Nisus. Yes, you can do what you want. Finding such things is in fact what Nisus is best at. Here's how you do it: Use Edit > Find (> Show Find) to get the Find dialog box Select "Power Find" from the "Using:" selection menu Place the cursor in the "Find" box and from the little ...

Re: Check Spelling Hell

On thinking again about the previous macro, I realized that the criteria for which files one might want to set the check spelling should perhaps be changed. In my case the Nisus created files include a lot of .doc, .txt and .html files among others. I have now edited the above code to restrict itsel...

Re: Check Spelling Hell

I cannot conceive of a user who would desire having some documents that pop up with this "feature" on and others with it off, all day long. Just speaking for myself, I like that inline spellchecking is controlled on a per-document basis. Whether or not I want spellchecking turned on has a lot more ...

Ok, thanks.

And so presumably the commands (in NWP) in Preferences > New File "Reveal in Finder", or in Macros "Show Macros Folder in Finder" will also still work as a way to access (the Nisus specific part of) the Library…

Re: Check Spelling Hell

… requires you to save a file named "Nisus New File.dot" in your Library folder. But in OS X Lion, users are not allowed access to that folder. Hmmm. Is that true? Does OSX Lion bar users from accessing their own Library folders? I haven't tried Lion yet, but every time I hear something about it, i...

Re: macro to print all open documents?

The following macro should do it. Since I don't really want to print out a lot of stuff, I haven't really tested this.

Code: Select all

$openDocs = Document.openDocuments
foreach $doc in $openDocs
$doc.show
File:Print
Press Default Button
end

Re: Can you move tables "free form" instead of rigit alignme

This is almost certainly a bug. I am pretty sure that earlier versions of NWP allowed moving tables on the page (though I think there were problems.) Currently I get a "hand cursor" when hovering over the edge of a table, and I can drag the table vertically (!) but not horizontally. Also tables are ...

Re: A macro to do macros

Hello Pat here is one more version of a macro. This one is actually considerably simpler. This one works as follows: Assuming you have a file named "database.rtf" which contains individually formatted words, the macro will look for all instances of those words in the current file and apply the same ...
