Nisus unresponsive from Dock

Sometimes after putting the computer to sleep and then waking it up again, Nisus is completely unresponsive when selected from the Dock or by cmd-tabbing. Nisus _seems_ to come to the front because the Nisus menu bar appears across the top, but typing cmd-Open (or selecting Open) simply gets a burp ...

Re: macro menu updating, and F1 key

Would have sworn I'd tried selecting a different menu in that pane, but it works as advertised now.

Thanks.

macro menu updating, and F1 key

Needed a quick little macro, so selected New Macro, wrote, and saved it. It appears at the bottom of the Macro menu and works. Great. Want to assign a key combination to it, so open preferences and get to where you select the menu item. Problem: the new macro shown at the bottom of the Macro menu do...

attributes OFF in find/replace

If you expand a glossary abbreviation in the find/replace dialog, Nisus ohhh-so-kindly automatically checks the Attribute Sensitive box -- EVEN IF Remove styles and attributes has been applied to the entire glossary file (all entries) so that there are no attributes to be sensitive about. This is re...

Re: Save as PDF

Ah. I see.

The manual certainly is much easier to navigate now. Glad I don't have to create PDFs.

Re: Save as PDF

Caveat the caveat... If you format as described by Hamid and then Print... and Save as PDF from there, Nisus prints a PDF with the page numbers as desired. Never needed this in Nisus before, so I followed the directions and created a page 1 with Hidden Footer. Page 2 followed a section break with fo...

OSX10.6 and Nisus crashes

Nisus rarely crashed under 10.5, but since recently upgrading from 10.5 to 10.6 Nisus seems to crash every couple of days. I would click the Report button as Martin (?) has suggested to send a report to Nisus, but the dlg box says the report goes to Apple. After recent reports of Apple collecting lo...

Re: enabling glossaries

$array = Glossary Names # filenames without extension
$array = Enabled Glossary Names
Enable Glossary name
Disable Glossary name

I suppose that would be a good idea. But it still doesn't answer the original question.

Martin, can we request these commands? ;)

Re: enabling glossaries

[quote]From a computer program’s point of view, that has exactly the same effect as saving a file with another name.

Re: enabling glossaries

The macro doesn't save it. I save the glossary file manually with cmd-S. The glossary file in this case is typically one that I've moved (and possibly renamed) at the Finder level into the glossary folder while or before Nisus is running (it doesn't matter which). In Nisus, I then run my macro, and ...

enabling glossaries

I have a group of macros for manipulating glossary files, particularly adding entries without going to the preference pane and adding them manually. They use a common procedure that presents a list of glossaries and automatically selects the one corresponding to the current job while letting me sele...

shoulder as in "should"

Hello. I looked up "shoulder" in Nisus Thesaurus just now and was surprised to find such entries as shoulder (as in "should") v. : be expected to: "Parties should be fun" What gives? How does the thesaurus work if it returns such results? I even checked two paper dictionaries to see if this was an a...

Re: first word of sentence not being capitalized

I figured something like that might be going on. For now I'll leave it as is, because the solution might be worse than the problem. Thank you. Ah, a follow-up question. If one changes the configuration inside the Nisus package as described, does that mean that the same change would need to be made m...
