Re: Weird Text Analysis Bug: possessive+.

I can confirm that this was a bug in version 2 that is now working correctly in version 3. Both of the examples you gave are reported as 2 sentences by version 3, whether I use curly quotes or straight quotes.

Re: Active Selection: Text Color

That sounds very strange! But just to confirm, you are saying that merely selecting text will change the text's color, as if you had chosen the menu Format > Text Color > White . Is that correct? If so then there's certainly no setting to control it, as it's a totally crazy behavior that indicates s...

Re: Fles Save in Glossary Format

Thanks for the additional information Daniel. It sounds like the underlying cause of the problem is the same for you and your wife, despite the different error messages. Both messages seem misleading. They're not generated by Nisus Writer but come from the system (macOS) in situations where the save...

Re: Fles Save in Glossary Format

Hello Daniel, I'm sorry your wife is having trouble saving files. What you've described sounds strange, but let's go over a few things and see what we can do to help. First, could I trouble you to please capture a screenshot of the actual error message on screen? Or at least maybe you could copy-pas...

Re: Drag and drop gone

Again, drag + Drop works fine in all other applications, but in Nisus, I get a 3d gray button with a white downward pointing carat-arrow, which provides sharing menu options. These are all things from the system, not Nisus. It sounds like you're taking about this menu: share.png Is that the menu? I...

Re: localization of the interface in german

Hello Gerd:

Nisus Writer Pro version 3.0 does not have any non-English localizations, sorry about that. There wasn't time for us to update the localizations before version 3 was finalized. We intend to update the localizations later (including German), for a future software update to version 3.

Re: Boolean Operation Evaluation

If it's in the manual, I couldn't find it -- and this should be in the manual. (To the manual writer, hint hint :-) Quite right! Thank you for the post on this topic. The behavior you're asking about is called short-circuit evaluation . The macro reference should make it explicit whether or not Nis...

Re: Page/text margins color

One small clarification: you can have page guides visible on screen (ie: checkmarked on the View menu), but still prevent them from appearing in printouts and PDFs. The latter is controlled separately by a "print page guides" option in the Print dialog.

Re: Select Header Text

Hi Al- it looks like your problem is not activating PowerFind (or PowerFind Pro) mode in the Find command options. The macro command for PowerFind Pro (regex) should look like this:

Code: Select all

Find All '.+', 'E-i', '-ah'
If you want to use PowerFind then it looks like this:

Re: Cross-references to tailored fourth level list style

In case this come up for anyone else: the problem was that Stephen wanted a single cross-reference to display information about multiple list paragraphs. He wanted to show not only the target paragraph's list number, but also the list number of the relevant enclosing list paragraph. For example cons...

Re: excluding levels from the document TOC

Philip is correct that there's no built-in support for this, but as he mentioned there are ways to workaround it if you really want. All the same I'll consider your post here as a feature request, thanks Shmuel!

Re: "_text_" to italic

It's not at all obvious why you wouldn't use "AnyText" as the wildcard. [...and at the moment I have no idea what "1+shortest" is/does. Time for some reading.] If you're willing to do a good amount of reading then you might check out information on regular expressions (aka: regex), which Nisus Writ...

Re: Macro to inventory Floating Contents

Philip just linked to this thread, and while his macro is neat and useful, there's a built-in way to do this now. Version 3 can show you a list of all floating shapes, where you're free to click through them at your leisure. Just use these two menus in succession: Tools > Shapes > Select All Shapes ...

Re: Two instances (windows) of the same file

Thank you for letting us know this feature is important to you. Split View does indeed already allow similar types of editing and workflows, but we can understand why some users might prefer to have multiple windows open for the same document.

Re: Cross-references to tailored fourth level list style

Hello again Stephen. I'd like to help you, but let me first clarify exactly what you mean. When you're talking about cross-references, do you mean those created via the menu Insert > Cross-references ? If so, then I assume the insert cross-reference window option "Insert Reference To" is set to "Lis...
