Re: sections, headers and columns

G’day, Ulrich et al When you choose “Same Page” for the Section Break, it just means that the new Section starts on the same page as the previous Section: it doesn’t necessarily affect the Header on that page. The Header at the top of the page is that associated with the Section whose text appears f...

Re: Top to bottom Japanese writing

G'day, all One of the Japanese-speaking members will probably answer this question, but I tried an experiment, just out of curiosity. New document, multiple columns, choose “Right to Left” from Sections palette. It does what you want! To get a single character in each row of a column, you will proba...

Re: Tall characters getting cut off

G’day, all I looked at "Lorem ipsum” text in Hoefler Text with line spacing of 1 line and before and after paragraph spacing of 0 pt.

G’day, Tom et al In very brief outline, one way to do this is to modify the “Number List” List Style in the Styles Library.

Re: Search Parenthesis

G’day! Searching for "(AnyCharacter)" will only find occurrences of a single character delimited by parentheses. If you are using PowerFind, try "(AnyCharacter 1+Shortest)” instead, where I have included a space merely to separate the two wildcards here, for legibility. If you are using PowerFind Pr...

Re: What is Nisus doing when it is "typesetting text"?

G'day, all Yes, after many years' absence from Nisus forums (but not from Nisus products — I'm still in mourning from the demise of Nisus Email), I'm back. The easiest way to circumvent the text typesetting problem is to keep the file open! Save it after use and Minimize it to the Dock where it is e...
