Re: Include default black font color in style definition

First let me say that I agree with your basic point: NWP should really allow users to define black as a color. But now a question about the procedure as you describe it. Why do you "scroll through" your document? You should be able to just use the Select All (with color) feature. If you place your c...

Re: turntable

Well I figured a way around the problem. So here now an updated version of the macro for swapping rows and columns of a table, that works even for tables with merged cells.

Re: Title Case

Bob. a string has to have the form U+xxxx for the "Edit > Convert > From Unicode Code Points" to work.

Of course I agree that they could make it more user-friendly.

Re: Rectangular selection and edit

The classic Nisus used to be able to do this. But NWP can't … (yet… I hope).

Re: turntable

Well I don't know when this happened. But the guys in Solana Beach "fixed a bug" (as Colbert would say). Apparently they felt a need to change the behavior for selecting merged table cells. Previously if you tried to select the "hidden" cell (using the macro command) you would end up with the "visib...

Re: A macro to do macros

Hello again, I'm not really sure what you are aiming for now. This "database" do you want to do this in Nisus? (Not that Nisus can't do it. You could probably write a C-compiler in the Nisus macro language. It just wouldn't be a good idea :lol: ) So I am going to return here one more time to the pre...

Re: A macro to do macros

Hello Pat, well it helps to know what you are trying to achieve. Here are some comments: You ask whether there is a limit to the number of macros that Nisus can load. Martin probably should answer that question, but I am pretty sure that the only limit is the amount of memory your computer has. Howe...

Re: A macro to do macros

After yesterday's macro writing lesson here a different approach. The following macro will create a "Find and Replace" macro for each word in the selection. It isn't really "one click" though. The user will be prompted to give a replacement for each unique word in the selection. So don't try it on y...

Re: A macro to do macros

Hello Pat, what you want is not really too difficult, but the way you state your request is still underspecified. Here first a hint at how one can make such a macro. You can do it using the macroize function :o Open the Find box, switch to Powerfind Write "hello" in the find box and "bye" in the rep...

Re: Find problem

Did you check under "Character Case" > "Display as Small Caps"?
Alternatively there is also under Edit > Convert > "To Small Caps".

The two varieties find different things.

Re: Setting heading numbering font different from heading fo

Ok, I see that I was too dismissive. Indeed one can apply style attributes to the List levels individually, and they carry through. That's nice :love: . There are two limitiations that I see however, one in particular is likely to be a problem for blakers. First one can only apply attributes, but no...

Re: More clipboard tools - smart cut, smart copy.

Hi Lou, congratulations on your cool macros! :) I did find one issue however. For users (like me) who have some clipboards that are not named according to the schema "Clipboard n" this can lead to an infinite loop which generates a never-ending list of clipboards. The problem is that as the Nisus Ma...

Re: Tiered numbered headings problems

OK, the problem seems to be something very technical, but here it is. Even though your Heading styles have the "Headings" List style attached, you seem to have fiddled with the List Style definition independently. This seems to mean that the List Style of the Heading Style is not really the right Li...

Re: Tiered numbered headings problems

Well just to be clear I have: Heading 1 defined including Tiered List Style Heading 2 based on Heading 1 with List level increased Heading 3 based on Heading 2 with List level increased And the result works for me. I am attaching my sample. If you want you can post your file and I (or somebody) will...
