Re: Indents

G'day, Amontillado et al

> "The play's the thing."

Very potent with such spirits.

(From a couple of lines back, for those up there in the back row.)

Cheers,

Re: Indents

G'day, Martin et al > "The left/head indent should be used as a tabbing location." I guess this is where we disagree, but I'm not about to ditch NWP on this account! I don't have Microsoft Word, for second opinions or otherwise. With respect to Styles, I frequently use them, but I don't feel obliged...

Re: Indents

G'day, Amontillado, Martin et al Thanks for looking at this. As I said, I'm fully aware that beginning a paragraph with a tab character is not exactly ideal, but I confess I sometimes resort to this quick-and-dirty ploy, only to be confronted with what I consider aberrant behavior. I demonstrate it ...

Indents

G'day, all The situation with paragraph indents has long bugged me. I know it's not usually a great idea to begin a paragraph with a tab character, but even so, hanging indents should produce an expected result regardless, which they don't. Start with the first line indent and the left indent aligne...

Re: line thickness of an underline

G'day, fbloom et al No need to be sorry: the only way to change the thickness of an underline in NWP is by changing the font size — or the window magnification! An alternative would be to use a Shape, because you can change the thickness of a line. However, Shapes can't be attached to characters, so...

Re: Nisus Writer Pro open Pages document as blank

G'day, jlentini et al

Same thing happens with Mojave.

I think native Pages documents are a special format. If you export a Pages document to RTF format, you can then open it in Nisus Writer Pro.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: NWP documents don't remember Apple Dock status

G'day, wF et al I haven't tested what happens to Nisus files in the Dock after a computer Restart, but they do survive there on my computer after a Quit and relaunch of NWP. They will, of course, have to be relaunched in order for subsequent calls to the Dock to open their windows almost immediately...

Re: Powerfind ninja needed for search question

G'day, Philip et al Thanks for the detailed explanation, Philip. Even so, something was not gelling for me. So I looked really hard at your post and again at the Find & Replace dialog box. It finally dawned on me that it's a colon, not a period, that follows the question mark. Just not obvious with ...

Re: Powerfind ninja needed for search question

G'day, Philip et al

I had noted the PowerFind Pro expression, but I confess I don't quite understand why it doesn't just begin with the caret. Enlightenment is sought.

Re: Powerfind ninja needed for search question

G'day, sethgodin et al It's probably worth pointing out here that, regardless of whether there is a concluding punctuation mark or not, not everything that looks like a paragraph is in fact a paragraph (in the sense recognized by the Find & Replace system). A line that is shorter than others may end...

Re: Powerfind ninja needed for search question

G'day, sethgodin et al Another thought… If a document such as this comes from the Web, it’s worth looking at the source code to see if it contains features that could be useful in formulating the Find string. I’m thinking here about such things as link anchors. One paragraph in each pair may have th...

Re: Powerfind ninja needed for search question

G'day, sethgodin et al Philip has provided excellent solutions for you. Another would be to delete the first paragraph following each Section Break — if blog posts were separated by Section Breaks. Yet another would be to make use of any date stamping that might be associated with a post. But allow ...

Re: Missing Footnote divider line?

G'day, vanceone et al I use NWP 3.2 with Mojave. For me, the footnote dividing line shows both on the screen and in PDFs created by Nisus's Export As PDF command, as well as in PDFs created via the Print dialog box. I've only had a quick look at where your problem might lie. The only place I can see...
