Re: Multiple footnote streams?

Six years ago some dreamed of more than one stream of footnotes/endnotes in Nisus.

Maybe now that Nisus is more 'mature' this could be dreamt of again?

Thank you.

Re: Dates in Sequence

Thanks, Martin.  I did have a look at the macro reference and wasn't able to see how this might be done. So I'm not too surprised to hear that pearl is required. This macro will be useful for me in the future as well, and I don't know how many dates/pages I might want at another time. So some abilit...

Dates in Sequence

I’m sure this would be simple for those who know something about coding macros, but it’s beyond my abilities. I need to make a document each page of which (50-100 pages, say) has a date at the top, whether as header or simply as the first line of text, including day of the week in this form: Mon 30 ...

Software Husbandry

Often often I find myself working on several or even many documents at one time. In this case I usually turn to Bean because it now has a sidebar that can hold all the open documents. (Yeah, I know about Document Manager and the Window menu item and even CMD-Apostrophe.) But of course I end up missi...

Re: Lucida Grande and Italics

Thanks, Henry. I didn't realize Nisus could do such faking. It looks fine when printed and also in PDF, so it's certainly of some value. I realized later I should just check to see what happens on export. I don't have Word, which of course is usually what we have to deal with, but I see that a file ...

Lucida Grande and Italics

Well I’ve never understood much about fonts. I’ve been happily using Lucida Grande, believing (wrongly?) that I was getting italics when I press CMD-I (or Format>Font Face> Italic). But I see that elsewhere—in other software contexts, such as in TextEdit—Lucida Grande has no italics. So what do I ha...

Re: Needed: a "Go Back" button

I realized that it was the void between my ears that caused the trouble. I'm the one who had remapped the shortcut in the 'old days' before Nisus 2.x.
Please ignore me.

Re: coloring page view screen

As one who ‘complained’ about this for years, I’m happy to be able to say:

Preferences>Appearance>Document Views>Page color

Is this not what you’re after?

Re: footnotes and blank space

I'm working on a project and suddenly this big blank space shows up and takes up half of one page. I've tried deleting it and everything else I know to do (which isn't much), but no results. I didn't do a page or section break, so I don't know what's going on. FWIW, I've seen this too. But closing ...

Re: Page Zoom

I can live with that. In fact it's even easier to use the macro+keyboard shortcut than to fiddle with the trackpad.

Page Zoom

What are the chances Nisus could allow us to add some ‘favorites’ to the page zoom menu? I’m often wanting a number that isn’t an option - - just a quirk of my own preferred font size, etc. No problem with a new file as the template can manage it, but otherwise a few extra steps are required to get ...

Style Libraries

I prefer to write using quirky fonts and sizes that need to be replaced before printing or sending out. I have two style libraries (’Writing’ & ’Printing’) with identically named styles, so switching between them does the job: it keeps all formatting while changing only the fonts and sizes appropria...
