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.

Re: drag-drop-type bug?

Thank you for the reply, which is both encouraging and disconcerting. Encouraging because I created a new file, opened and edited a Classic file, and opened a different old NWP rtf file and had no problem dragging, dropping, and editing as expected in any of them. Disconcerting because the problem h...

drag-drop-type bug?

Perhaps I'm not dragging and dropping correctly, but... When I drag and drop text from A to B, and then proceed to type, the keyboard is dead and the system simply burps. To bring the keyboard back to life, it is necessary to click somewhere (anywhere). The procedure is double-click to select text, ...

bug? report: importing classic glossaries

Perhaps this has already been reported, perhaps it doesn't qualify as a bug, and it is easy to deal with, but... When importing classic glossaries, a glossary entry break is not added after the last entry. The abbreviation still expands, which is good. But this means that the first step in adding a ...

Split windows

is one feature I'd very much like to see. By split windows I mean a la Classic's ability to split the document window vertically into two separately scrollable parts so that you can, for example, view and edit one part of the document (say the beginning) in the top, another part (say the end) in the...

Re: Get Paragraph number

Thanks for confirming that there is no way to get the paragraph number in a macro. I guess that there is likewise no way to get the number of the other objects used by the various Select (object) [i]number[/i] commands. If you can't get the number, I can't see a use for these commands -- but I'm sur...

This can be done using: Select Previous Paragraph Select Next Paragaph I tried Select Relative Paragraph 0 but this doesn't work. Or, it could be done using Select Paragraph (num...

Re: retain format of prev paragraph

Thank you for the macros. Setting up a style sheet or paragraph formatting with an autoindent is in many ways the preferred solution, but tabbed indentation is preferable because of how the documents will be used downstream, as basically straight text documents. Hard tabs preserve what little format...

retain format of prev paragraph

Classic has a feature that keeps the formatting from one paragraph to the next so that, e.g., if the first line in a paragraph starts with a tabbed indent, typing a return at the end of the paragraph starts the next paragraph with the insertion point after a leading tab. is this possible in Pro? I h...

registry problem (syntax?)

So I'm making progress learning the new macro language and have several macros that work well, thanks to Martin and others. Among those are a couple that save values using the registry objects. Starting small to big, my macro for adding single glossary entries works as desired, including opening the...
