Re: Simple footnote formatting question

G'day, Frank et al

View > Style Sheet > Note Styles > Footnote

Replace "xxx" in the attached screenshot with whatever you want to precede the footnote content. In the present case, it would be a period followed by a space.

Re: Delete page breaks

G'day, Amontillado et al Have you tried using the Formatting Examiner? Select one Section Break, then click on the cogwheel in the Formatting Examiner Palette and choose "Select All". If you want to replace them with something, choose "Find All in New Window" instead of "Select All", enter your repl...

Re: Equation numbering methods.

G'day, Martin et al Thanks for that, Martin. The subtlety of accounting for the text height is a nice little touch. Strictly speaking, of course, the macro only aligns a list item number , not an entire list item, with an image. Aligning all tab-separated text elements in a list item would obviate t...

Re: Equation numbering methods.

G'day, all While Martin's approach works well enough, it is perhaps not ideal for those unaccustomed to working with right-to-left languages, particularly when it comes to placement of the insertion point for new paragraphs. So I think my earlier suggestion of allowing a choice between leading and t...

Re: Equation numbering methods.

G'day, johseb et al If you select an image, its dimensions are shown in the Shape Metrics Palette. Choose the Units to be Points, so you see the Height of the image in points. Now select the list item number and raise the baseline (via the Format menu) by half the number of points in the image's hei...

Re: Equation numbering methods.

G'day, Martin et al

Perhaps an option in the Lists Palette to choose between leading and trailing list item numbers (with following and preceding tabs respectively) could be of use in this and other contexts.

Re: Mysterious Control Character

G'day, Philip et al Yes, you're quite right, Philip. With that hint about the font size, I now see that it was set at 256 pt in Ulrich's document. As the font size is reduced, progressively more of the code string appears. At 256 pt, anything beyond the "\x" extended beyond the right margin and henc...

Re: Mysterious Control Character

G'day, Philip et al

When I do that, the character is replaced by "\x".

However, once the aptly named "mysterious" character is selected, its Unicode code is revealed in the Formatting Examiner Palette, which is easier than using the Character Viewer.

Re: Mysterious Control Character

G'day, Ulrich et al Yeah, it's all a bit crazy. The Character Viewer is the tool you want, but (inexplicably) pasting into its search field does not give the correct character code, at least in this instance. However, if the character is selected in the Nisus document, it will automatically appear a...

Re: Mysterious Control Character

G’day, Ulrich, Philip et al Strange characters like this often seem to arise when you copy something (generally a complete entity such as a telephone number) from an email message or a Webpage and then paste it into a text document. As Philip says, it's usually safe to delete them. Deleting all occu...

Re: New MacBookPro, error messages

G’day, jrochest et al Not sure about the other stuff, but a bit of “education” of your new computer may fix the document opening problem. Select a .rtf file (or whatever format you usually save NWP files in) in the Finder, then File > Get Info (Cmd-I). In the window that opens, set the “Open with” a...

Style Superimposition

G'day, all Feature request: Allow Styles to be superimposed on one another. This would avoid the need to create multiple versions of a Style via the "Based on" facility to suit as many underlying Styles as are required in a document. Perhaps it could be achieved by adding "Existing Paragraph Style" ...

Re: Paragraphs Starts Odd Page?

G’day, fde101 et al This is a bit trickier than it may at first appear because subsequent addition or removal of text prior to the designated paragraph may need to effect the insertion or deletion of a blank page immediately before the paragraph. This means that any Style would need to have a dynami...

Re: Macro and Powerfind

G'day, dougelrsystems et al

Nisus Writer will create the macro for you. See "Create a macro from Find and Replace expressions" on Page 449 of the Nisus Writer User Guide (under the Help menu). Once you have your macro document, you can edit it as you see fit.

Hope this helps.
