Re: Create array from word list?

Martin and Philip,

Thank you for stepping in with the help with my learning curve managing and manipulating objects. Delighted to see how fast the .appendValue builds an array when moving through a single body of .text.find.

A foundation and a springboard!

Re: Help, after clean install of Bug Sir [sic]

Bit of a blow out, yesterday, apologies. I'd had my second Moderna vaccination on the 7th and was a bit ruff around the edges. I think the problem I encountered involved a collision of new and old settings by running the Nisus installer to install as new on top of all my migrated user data on the fr...

Re: Help, after clean install of Bug Sir [sic]

No files lost. Thanks for you question. But those last suggested steps left Nisus with multiple locations for templates, styles. Not clean. Mangaged it. Saved the file "keyboard shortcuts.plist", as well as styles, etc. AppCleanered Nisus entirely. Reinstalled. Replaced "keyboard shortcuts.plist" an...

Help, after clean install of Bug Sir [sic]

So, clean install of Big Sur 11.2.3, then migration of User but not Applications. After installing Nisus 3.2.1, mostly ok but one issue I can't resolve. Nisus asked me to point it to my nisus root folder, forgetting the exact language, which I did. Now, whenever I Show Document Manager, I get this e...

Re: Create array from word list?

Just a question: Could this have been achieved by using the Edit:Transform Paragraphs:Randomize (shuffle) command? Yup, turns out you sure can. And it produces a different random order with iterations from the original text. Thank you for pointing this out. BUT, Philip picked up on where I was at a...

Re: Create array from word list?

Ok, I've worked out at least one possibly tedious solution, which is to search each word from top to bottom of document and build array, one wrod at a time. I'm sure there's a cleaner, maybe faster, solution. I can then randomize the array. Ok. What I then want to do is to either replace the existin...

Create array from word list?

Greetings,

I have a text document with a word list, one word per line. I'm looking for recommendations for macro text to create an array with each word as a separate element of an array.

Thanks,
Brad

Re: Initials

Still in learning mode with Nisus here; had to try this. Really, once you get a handle on the variables you can tweak, to do this for 20 chapters should not be onerous, especially relative to what you've invested in writing 20 chapters, I would imagine. The attached screenshot compares a Nisus drop ...

runaway Nisus File Converter

I'm relatively new to NWP, running on macOS 11.2.1. Twice now, after opening Nisus and one or more "basic" RTF files, I've noticed the fans running and seen the Nisus File Convertor not responding and running at 99.8%, I think this is per thread? Both times, no file conversion was knowingly initiate...

Since I was asked about this, I'm posting here the macros that I use for syntax coloring in my macros. They require the use of appropriately named styles in the document.
Nice.

Re: using characterCase attribute

Good morning, Phil, and another "Thank you." I'm going to school on your code. Liked your use of .split, .push, and .join. And this time some helpful examples of objects, selection and range. These have helped me to get a feel for the language and where to look. Like the section named "Text Object -...
