Re: Nisus Default Template

I work with a MBPro connected to a large external monitor, and found this thread curious. On my setup, how the windows stack, or not, depends on the arrangement of the displays in the display prefs. Looking at the screens, the MBP screen is on the left side of the external monitor. I always move Nis...

Re: How to paste 500 pg .book & maintain orig pages and for

I suspect the answer will depend on knowing the format of the text you want to paste (or open) (doc, docx, rtf, some electronic publishing format, etc), and whether or not that format enables detecting where the pages break.

mail merge

I find this hard to believe, but is NWP actually lacking a mail merge capability? Pretty sure NW Classic had it, which doesn't mean much. Never needed it before in NWP, and cannot find any reference in the help file. "mail merge" finds nothing, and all "mail" finds refer to e-mail. Basically, I want...

Re: Type Text vs Type Attributed Text

Hello, Philip. Thank you for your help. I was not aware that $sel.text.transliterateInRange($sel.range, $map) was valid, and have changed my macro. In the process, (prompted by .textSelection) I learned I was using a deprecated command. And I have been re-reading the lang ref in the process about li...

Greetings. The macro reference states: Type Text text Replaces the currently selected text with the text provided. The inserted text uses the attributes that were applied to the selected text. Type Attributed Text text ....The inserted text will have the attributes that are applied to the argument i...

Re: Expand glossary in current font and size

[quote]Assuming you have a file where each abbreviation is paired with its cuneiform counterpart (separated by a tab, for example), you can just insert glossary separators between the entries (perhaps with Find/Replace, otherwise with a macro), and then save the whole thing as glossary.[/quote] Beca...

NWP and new MBPro with touch bar

While Apple has decreed that function keys are a thing of the past, some people use the function keys with Nisus extensively. I'm one of them. I also use an external keyboard, and teh laptop keyboard is barely within reach. As I understand it, you have to press the FN key on the laptop to access the...

Re: Toggle Paragraph Spacing...

Hi, Þorvarður.

In the macro language reference go to
Objects : Registry Object: Registry Type Commands

or faster, search for "user registry" and you'll go straight there.

Re: underline to italic?

You can also use the find expressions already described and just Find All. Then dismiss the F/R dialog, and manually apply the changes you want while all of the found selections are still selected (highlighted). So if you want to remove the underline and apply italic, simply cmd-U and then cmd-I -- ...

Re: Glossary issues, again

Thank you for your interest and comments, which sent me looking more. I discovered that the problem was the hyphen in 長さ−長. Somewhere in the trip from the original document in Nisus to Excel and back to Nisus glossary, that character was converted from U+30FC to U+2212 in the glossary. So it would n...

Re: Glossary issues, again

re: OmegaT

Thank you for the suggestion. Yes, I have tried it. But it suffers from the same readability problems (for me, anyway) as the others on Windows.
