Re: Can anyone tell me how to Find and Replace a Font?

Using Find/Replace: In the Find panel put: “AnyText” Apply Arial to “AnyText” You will see that “Attribute Sensitive” gets checked In the Replace panel put: “Found” (via “Match” in dropdown menu from the cog wheel) Apply Courier to "Found" You will see that “Replace Attributes” gets checked Then cli...

Re: Unicode Code Points in Find/Replace

Ha!
Yes, of course. That works.

I am indeed an idiot, but I prefer to think that you are brilliant ;-)


Thanks

Unicode Code Points in Find/Replace

I have a number of documents in Greek in which many omegas (ω) have been displaced by a little-used form of the letter pi (ϖ) that happens to look a bit like omega. So of course I want to replace all occurrences of ϖ with ω. These should be omega, after all, not pi. If I copy/paste the character ϖ i...

Re: A “Convert Text to Notes.nwm” macro?

Hi, It works for me so I’m not sure what problem you’re having. Did you define the opening and closing delimiters in the text of the macro? You can define them to be pretty much anything you like. In your case, edit the text of the macro at the beginning to look like this: $prefix{'footnotes'} = '((...

Re: Feature req: "find & show in context" to appear in Navig

I, too, remember and miss this feature.
Would be great to get it back.
Thanks, Martin.

Re: Living Dangerously...with Bibliography

Hi, There’s nothing to show in Bookends, really. You just use the temporary citation markers it generates in a somewhat unconventional manner. This is the way Bookends temporary citation markers ‘normally’ appear: Wackernagel has shown the difference ({&Wackernagel 1998 #46773@77-89}). But since I d...

Re: Move Comments to Marked Text (in one swell foop)—Solved

@Martin Thanks for this, too. But you give me too much credit ;-) I intended to indicate only my ignorance. My presumption that I could invoke a command to act on the Comment Object ‘directly’ was just a sign of how little I understand. Approaching the Comment Object as part of the text makes perfec...

Re: Move Comments to Marked Text (in one swell foop)—Solved

Thank you, Martin. That’s very helpful. And yes it makes sense! I saw the .markedText property for Comment Objects, so I thought that I should be able simply to ‘replace’ $comment.markedText with $comment.text. But apparently the only way to do that is with the .replaceInRange command, since there i...

Re: Move Comments to Marked Text (in one swell foop)—Solved

Philip, This is really helpful. I made a silly experiment concerning sing/pl to see that, as you wrote, you can use any name you like for the loop variable. I changed ‘$comment’ to ‘$pear’ and it works just as well: $doc = Document.active $comments = $doc.allComments $docText = $doc.text foreach $pe...

Re: Move Comments to Marked Text (in one swell foop)—Solved

Hi Philip, Thanks for the explanation. ‘Reversed’ is very clever. Not so long ago someone asked on the forum how to learn the Nisus macro language, and Martin replied that there’s not really a good way, aside from asking (!). So I'm hoping that you—or Martin—will indulge me in asking a couple of bas...

Re: Move Comments to Marked Text (in one swell foop)—Solved

Thank you two times, Philip.

It was this that I was trying to arrive at:

while $doc.allComments.count > 0

I'll see if I can figure out your more terse version, particularly 'in reversed'

Thanks again for your help.

Move Comments to Marked Text (in one swell foop)—Solved

Hi, I have a simple macro like this: Go to Next Comment Copy Go to Marked Text Paste This works fine, but of course it works for only one Comment at a time. Edit: I had asked how to make this work for all Comments at once. By stealing from http://www.nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=3955 I got w...

Living Dangerously...with Bibliography

I’m not the only Nisus user who has flirted with Mellel. Like others, I used it for a time when Nisus was reinventing itself for OSX, and have kept my eye on it over the years. One of the attractions of Mellel (aside from multiple footnote streams, ahem) is what they call ‘Live Bibliography’ with Bo...
