Re: Opening Perl (.pl) files

Hi Fox,
the reason you are getting that message is because you are trying to upload that file here. You can either:
  1. Send it to Martin with the "feedback" button in Nisus
  2. zip the file first before uploading it here

Re: Latex cite and bibliography

Thanks for putting that macro together Philip! It's quite nice. You even restore the user's prior document view if the macro has to create a Citation style- such a polite macro 8) Hopefully Daniel and others put your efforts to good use! Thanks, Martin. Of course, restoring the view would be easier...

Re: Latex cite and bibliography

Sorry, discovered another small error. Line 72 should have $bibnameNoExt changed to $bibname, so it should look like this:

Code: Select all

prompt “No \\bibliography command found.”, “Shall I insert one for $bibname at the end of the document?”
Here the corrected macro:

Re: Latex cite and bibliography

Here is a slightly improved version of the macro. This removes the problem of leaving the temporary file open at the end. It also cleans up some of the unused variables. BibNisusFormat.nwm One point that I failed to explain in my previous post: When this macro inserts citation numbers in the text it...

Re: Latex cite and bibliography

Hello again Daniel, I have here something of a bare bones version of the script: BibNisusFormat.scpt.zip There are number of things to say. The original BibFuseFormat script uses a construct called "fields" in Word, which as far as I can make out seem to allow hiding things in a file. Essentially th...

Re: Latex cite and bibliography

Hello Daniel, let me just say the obvious first. The applescript won't work with Nisus because it says tell application "Microsoft Word" But more specifically it relies on the specific applescript hooks that MS Word has, so changing this will require some rewriting. I'll take a look at this, but it ...

Re: Latex cite and bibliography

Hello again. I don't use BibDesk myself. If you do still want help with this problem, could you post the script (or a link to where you got it)? Generally since Nisus has real grep (unlike Word) it is really easy to grab all the \cite{} strings from a Nisus file. But a quick look at BibDesk did not ...

Re: Latex cite and bibliography

When you say "I have a script" this is what? An apple script, something else? And where/when do you run it? On a saved Nisus file?

Re: 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 d...

Nisus Writer Pro comes through again

Just thought I'd mention again what a great application Nisus Writer Pro is. I have been working with svgs a lot recently. And so I was faced with the prospect of editing hundreds of files. Since svg is a text format however, it was a snap to write a macro to load the files as data, do some find and...

Re: Error in "Justify fully Arabic"

Hello ameddo, It seems that Nisus has forgotten to update their macro for the current menu arrangement of NWP. Line 17 looks like this: Menu 'Paragraph Alignment:Justify' # in case the user forgot It should look like this Menu 'Paragraph:Align Justified' # in case the user forgot However, since I do...

Re: Urgetn questions

Disfasia, I think there is a bit of confusion on your part. I suspect that you have never used "Nisus Writer Pro". There are three products: Nisus Writer (now called "Nisus Writer Classic"): This is what you would have been using 15 years ago. Nisus Writer Express: This is the "lightweight" version ...

Re: Not so "read only"

Oh, and here is a smarter macro to do this kind of thing. Even though the width/height are linked, changing the width in this manner does not change the linked height, so it is necessary to do it by hand. $wid = 200 Select Document Start while Select Next Image $img = Image.selectedImage $ratio = $w...

Not so "read only"

According to the Macro Reference the properties of the Image Object are all "read only". In defiance of this advice I wrote the following macro: Select Document Start while Select Next Image $img = Image.selectedImage $img.width = 200 end Nothing seemed to happen, but when I checked the metrics of t...
