Re: Character Palette

I had actually tried that even before I first posted my question. It didn't help and I just tried it again and the sliding is still there. I too, obviously, am intrigued by this. I don't remember it even happening before, because it drew my attention as something unfamiliar. But I also have no expla...

Re: Character Palette

Hi Martin I'm back where I started. The palette list slides to the left (and right), but apparently only in this one document. As long as that's the case, I'll just live with it since it's a minor inconvenience which will end when I finish the document. If this returns later in other files, I'll ask...

Re: Character Palette

It's become even stranger all of a sudden. I'm using Mojave10.14.6 since I decided to bypass Catalina. I can't tell any more when it happens. It now seems that is has become stable and I can't make it happen when I want to, but I noticed it primarily when working on a document originally done in wor...

Re: Character Palette

Thanks for the quick reply, Martin.
Yes, I am thinking of the character palette and here, I hope are two screen shots.

Character Palette

I'm editing a document which requires that I change the font on a regular basis. But when I go to the character palette, the font names often slide to the left and out of sight. I don't remember this happening before and wonder if anyone know why and whether there is a way to freeze it in place.

Re: Fles Save in Glossary Format

Thanks again, Martin. I also can't generate the problem consistently and we both had been using the Save As option as a workaround when needed. What is still curious is why her files were saved as Glossary file, which is what it says when I open Get Info or look at it in the finder. But that doesn't...

Re: Fles Save in Glossary Format

Thanks for your response, Martin and I think you've identified the problem. I opened a new document just now in NWPro, saved it, added some text and moved the file to another location before saving. I didn't get the same message, but I did get one that said I don't have permission to write to that f...

Fles Save in Glossary Format

For reasons I haven't been able to understand, files that my wife is creating won't save. The message is that the file exists on a device that doesn't allow storage. When I checked the file in the finder, I saw that it seems to be a Nisus Glossary file, which is why I'm assuming it won't accept any ...

Re: direction of writing

The only time I can remember something like this happening, Yohanan, was in the early days of Hebrew fonts when they weren’t automatically set to go right to left and had to be entered in reverse order. Drogulin comes to mind as one example. So maybe that’s the issue with Yehudit?

Re: Hebrew font issue

See if you have New Peninim in the Font Book.

As I said, I now think the issue is not with Times New Roman but with Narkisim, which I think is a PC font, so the placement of nekudot may be different from the way it is in a Mac.

Re: Hebrew font issue

One more thing: In the file you sent me, the last line was in a font call Narkisim, which is not in the list of fonts. When I changed that to Times New Roman, the nekudot no longer worked, as they didn't for you. But when I changed it to New Peninim, the nekudot were restored. When I tried Raanana, ...

Re: Hebrew font issue

I downloaded the document. When I removed your underlines from the text, indeed the nekudot were missing or inaccurate. However, when I changed the font to New Peninim, all the nekudot were in their right places. I have had this issue myself. For whatever reasons, Times New Roman doesn't seem to rec...

Re: Hebrew font issue

Are diacritics the same as nekudot?
Since I'm a heavy user of Hebrew, I would like to try and help.
Are you using the most recent version of NW?
Where is the Zohar text from which you are copying?

I'm happy to try and duplicate the problem if you can give me enough detail so I know how.

Re: Hebrew font issue

So I thought the font is Times New Roman which is what is listed under the screenshot. I made a mistake: the quote as msebban had it doesn't have an extra word. Rather, one of the words is split in half. So what is after the period should be before it. This looks to me either like a right to left is...
