first word of sentence not being capitalized

I saw the thread on editing the list of words that aren't capitalized, but this is different. I don't know whether it is a bug, feature, or by-product of multilingual support, but... If you type "This is a sentence. the " or "See FIG. 6. the " "the" is correctly capitalized. If you type "See FIG. 6D...

Re: calling macro within macro broke in 1.3

There must be even more going on somewhere. With additional fiddling, not changing how macro2 is called and variously turning extensions on and off in the Finder and DM, the problem comes and goes. Right now it's gone and extensions aren't shown in Finder or DM. This is before and after rebooting NW...

Re: calling macro within macro broke in 1.3

Ah, so some mystery is cleared up. However, it seems more complicated than just 1. Turning on "show file extensions" for your Document Manager (DM). I turned this on by unchecking the checkbox in the DM preference panel, and the problem repeated. Looking at the files in the Finder, the extension was...

Re: calling macro within macro broke in 1.3

I just tried them again, and the same problem occurs whether the macro is called from the menu using the mouse or using a keyboard shortcut as usual.

I just sent the four macro files in a .zip to feedback.

This is on a 2-mth old MBPro with 10.5.7.

Re: calling macro within macro broke in 1.3

Further to my previous post, it seems that calling macro2 from macro1 causes macro2 to open for editing and not execute . Now obviated by the new operation of the Select Paragraph command, I used the Select Current Paragraph macro: Select Previous Paragraph Select Next Paragraph in a macro such as S...

calling macro within macro broke in 1.3

First, thanks for v1.3. I've already noticed some nice improvements. As part of my suite of glossary related macros, one I called "Load List of Glossary Files" is long and is called from several other macros. Basically all it does is get and filter all glossary files in the glossary folder and eithe...

Spell checker quits checking

For reasons unknown and with no pattern I can discern, NWP stops checking spelling as I type, even though "Check Spelling as You Type" remains enabled as usual. The only indication that this has happened is that the red dots under misspelled works stop appearing. NWP has not crashed, and everything ...

Expand Glossary problem

...which seems to be a bug. Glossary entries expand differently when triggered automatically (such as by the space bar) and when Edit:Expand Glossary is invoked. Assume the glossary entry "em" expanding to "embodiment". Type "em[space]" and you get "embodiment." Perfect. Type "eem[space]" and the gl...

Prompt dialog & keyboard selection

When a prompt dialog is displayed with multiple radio buttons, such as by $numbers = Array.new $i = 10 while $i $numbers.appendValue $i $i -= 1 end Prompt Options 'from 10 to 1', '', '', $numbers on a MacBook Pro purchased last fall (model "MacBookPro4,1" from the system profiler), the options can b...

Re: Glossary file bug

re: reversed

Thank you for pointing that out. It makes sense since deleting an item changes the index.

Also thanks for the note about the limit on the prompt. It's not the cause of the problem, and should never be a problem because there are only 5 - 10 files in the glossary folder.

Re: Glossary file bug

Martin, Thanks for the reply, and for doing your magic. This is the second time I've written about something not working, you being unable to reproduce it, and the problem then vanishing on this end without changing anything. I decided to write after several weeks of noticing the problem, and this m...

Glossary file bug

which should be reproducible. I frequently recycle glossaries between jobs. The following problem occurs regularly and should be reproducible. I just verified it again. 1. Create a new glossary file in the QuickFix panel and edit to add at least one entry. 2. Create or open a file and try the glossa...

Re: drag-drop-type bug?

re: did all this happen only with old Classic files?

I'm not sure. I cannot reproduce it at will, and drag-drop works fine in the documents I've been working on since I posted. I'll try the redact macro the next time the problem occurs.
