Hiya rallx Nice to see you here, by the way. You don't have to mouse to the macro menu, you can assign keyboard shortcuts to macros through Fil > Preferences > Menu Keys > Macros. Use the modifiers you want (command [apple/splat] will always be one, but you can add to that if you wish with one or mo...

Hiya bigcaat You're making no allowance for the fact that you have had several years' use out of NWE -- and not only that, you've received free upgrades/updates and maintenance so it is acvtually a better program than the one you bought. If you had paid $59.95 some years ago for a pair of shoes inst...

FIX NEEDED -- CONTRADICTORY MEASUREMENTS FOR INDENTS

A number of us raised this matter during beta testing and it still needs to be fixed. It is hangover from Express. To illustrate the situation, I am talking about working in English, conventional left-right. In Style Sheet View double click one of the little indent blue marker thingies. A dialog box...

I see what you mean. But let's clarify exactly what we want. I can remember us workign through thsi years ago on the Dartmouth list or perhaps one of the other forums. 1. We want dates that are static. You enter them and ther it is, unalterable. 2. We want dates that will be entered on cue when a te...

Hiya Greg Check the Macros file. I have three date macros which I can invoke with a keyboard short cut I have assigned to them. One was written by Kino of the Dartmouth lsit, I am pretty sure; I am not sure about the others -- I think they might have come with NWE. Cheers Geoff MarketNOW with Geoffr...

Suffice to say you have your POV, dshan, and I have mine. I find your statements on writers, software bloat and business simplistic and inaccurate. Before talking about "code bloat", I suggest you fish around on a DTP hard disk and compare app sizes. You might also consider the question of why the n...

Many (writers) still use word processors as glorified typewriters ... Consequently, when I get the files of others to typeset, I'm resigned to the task of first stripping everything unnecessary (and potentially disruptive) out of them before reformating the whole thing to work for me. (I've tried t...

Re: I dunno...

The question is, of course, what word processing represents. :o I would contend very strongly indeed, that outlining is very much word processing. Many authors write their books on an outliner You may write your books using an outliner but don't assume everyone else does. Particularly novelists... ...

True, but it is not quite so bloated if you have Reader 7 and I may be quite wrong here (I NEARLY made quite a bad mistake in 1959, aND I definitely made a HUGE one in 1963) but it seems to me that its "find" works very well, which is important in a Help. I actually launch this and other PDFed Helps...

Hi Jon You might like to use the last bit of the process I use with my books which I set up in chapters in Canvas. Canvas has no book assembly facility, but I get around that by saving off all my chapters as PDFs, then use a very nice program called PDFpen to assemble them, then save the final file ...

Actually, Kim, it seems to me that what you are seeing at the foot of the window IS the ACTUAL page number. Blanks are actual pages. And so long as you have your blanks in your document, then the page number in the document and the page number at the foot of the window, will be in agreement. Alterna...

You can link your graphic to a paragraph -- and you can make that paragraph your caption -- so the picture and the paragraph move together if you remove or add text ahead of them in the document. The other alternative, which I haven't tried, would be to add a caption in your graphics program and mak...

I've had NWE running on the family machines for ages, and now we're switching over to Pro. I found it rock solid during the two betas. I can't speak for a time when all three of our machines are running -- I've been left alone for the last couple of weeks while others go on holiday, a Knight journal...

Good one, Bob. Obviously it CAN be done because it HAS been done! Further, the "Insert Images" already has in place "stuck to the page" and siting images behind the text. Probably no need to have a specifically "generate watermark" typ thing (like we had with the old Canvas through the drawing layer...
