Re: Indented Paragraph Text Flow Around Images

G’day, weiphotoarts et al Positions of margins, indents and tabs on rulers are absolute, not relative. Image insertion is not going to alter the ruler settings, so it is not to be expected that your Pic 2 look other than it does. I think your solution in Pic 3 is the easiest for non-technical people...

Re: Split window of same document

G’day, lramosgomez et al If you mean, can one simultaneously have two independently scrollable views of the one document, the answer is: unfortunately, no. This was a feature of Nisus Writer which did not survive the transition from Classic to OS X. It has long been top of my list of things I would ...

Re: Is there an easy way to create multi-paragraph list item

G’day, gfhill et al Despite a premonition of derision from the gallery, who I am sure have a more elegant solution, I offer the following approach. Instead of a Return, use Shift-Return to separate paragraphs constituting the one list item. Everything will then be as you wish, except for one small p...

Re: Table not continuing onto the next page

G’day, qbrc et al The subject characterization is not quite right. It seems the table does continue onto the next page, but a section/page break is inserted prematurely. You may need to post an appropriate portion of the table for us to examine what is going on. Replace any sensitive data with “lore...

Re: Alternative Mail-apps

G’day, alange et al Acknowledging that this thread is not really appropriate in this particular forum, I will nevertheless add to it because it may help to clarify something. Firefox and iCab allow you to set your preferred email client in Preferences, but Safari does not. I haven’t checked any othe...

Re: A couple cross-reference questions

G’day, Barbara et al Welcome to the forum, Barbara. Nisus Writer has two manuals, both accessible from the Help menu: Nisus Writer Pro Help and the Macro Language Reference. I have never had occasion to use cross-references myself, but I observe that the Macro Language Reference (see “CrossReference...

Re: Mystery retention of text in preview mode in Finder when

G’day, Mike et al I can’t replicate this behavior with the simplest of documents. Just to be clear, what I did is:– (1) Create a new Nisus document and type text "Mike's Guide to Nisus Writer Pro". (2) Save the file as an RTF file with filename "Mike's Guide to Nisus Writer Pro". (3) Finder preview ...

Re: How to change default glyph variant

How to change default glyph variant G’day, WF et al This question has remained unanswered for some time, so I thought I might venture some thoughts. The easiest thing would be to choose a different font that acts in the desired manner. Alternatively, one might use Hack-a-Font (fictitious name) softw...

Re: Header page numbers aligned on margin with centered head

G’day, Dan et al Welcome to the Forum, Dan. I see Mark has just beaten me to the reply. Same idea, but I’ve spelt it out a bit more, step-by-step fashion, so I’ll post it just in case it helps. First of all, we (almost!) never use spaces for formatting. It is easy (and more elegant!) to achieve what...

Re: Saving a Nisus file as a csv file to import into Filemak

G’day, dumiya et al

Try saving the file as Plain Text, with .txt file extension. Then, in the Finder, change the .txt extension to .csv. Numbers opens such a file as a spreadsheet table in the manner you would expect.

Re: Character Attribute Colors

G’day, foster13 et al

Format > Underline > Show Underline Colors
Format > Strikethrough > Show Strikethrough Colors
Format > Highlight > Show Highlight Colors

The macro language has commands for setting such colors.

Hope this helps.

Re: Add Remove Blank Lines

G’day, exegete77 et al On my system, the current version of the Add or Remove Blank Lines macro is a .nwm file rather than a .pl one:– $count = Find and Replace ‘\n\n+’, ‘\n’, ‘Eas’ If 0 == $count Find and Replace ‘\n’, ‘\n\n’, ‘Eas’ End It works fine when adding or removing blank lines, but one has...
