Re: Power Find(regex) quote meta characters

Hi Martin: yes you can use \Q...\E to escape meta characters in a regex find pattern. That works in both the regular Find panel and Nisus Writer Pro macros. Here's a quick example Nisus Writer macro: $sub = @string<\d+ \w+> Find All @String<T\w+ \Q$sub\E \w+>, 'E' That will match the text: Test \d+ ...

Re: Sort bug in glossary files

In case you need a workaround, you can use find/replace to remove the errant newlines. Here's a find pattern that will match the unwanted newlines:

Code: Select all

(?<=\f)\n
You can leave the replace expression empty to just deleted the found newlines. I hope that helps.

Re: After revert to 'last opened' no edits possible

I've been able to reproduce what you described, and it's definitely unexpected behavior. You should be able to save additional edits after you restore a prior version of a document. I'll file this as a bug, thank you for the report! In the meantime I'm afraid you'll have to close and reopen any docu...

Re: language interface

Nisus Writer Express 4 currently only has an English interface (GUI). However, non-English localizations (like French) will be updated and restored in a future software update. I'm sorry for the trouble.

Re: Spell Catcher problem in Nisus

Does your document text use any languages that are not shown in the preferences? Settings for any such languages could still influence Nisus Writer's behavior, even if those languages are not listed amongst your preferred languages. Please check the languages applied to your text and make sure you d...

Re: Spell Catcher problem in Nisus

The most likely cause of the unwanted keyboard change is your language preferences in Nisus Writer. We let the user optionally associate separate keyboard layouts for each language. For example, you can have Nisus Writer automatically activate the French keyboard layout every time you enter some Fre...

How do I change the size of comment text?

You can change the font size of comments in your document by adjusting the Comment paragraph style. This is a special style that Nisus Writer automatically applies to all comments by default. If you edit this style to change its formatting (eg: font size), your comment text will be updated automatic...

Re: Query about why 'wrong' date is showing

After reviewing privately submitted sample emails, they confirm what I suspected: these emails are not standard. Specifically they are missing a date header entirely. This is why InfoClick falls back to using the email file modification time (as cached by Apple Mail), which doesn't necessarily have ...

Why can't my file be saved?

In rare circumstances you might see an alert that says you do not have permission to save your document: alert.png This alert may suggest you should fix the file's permissions in the Finder; this is most likely misleading. The problem is more likely caused by a macOS security feature called sandboxi...

Re: Query about why 'wrong' date is showing

Thank you for the screenshots and possible bug report. That certainly doesn't look correct. If Apple Mail is showing the date as Nov 2015, then InfoClick should not show Oct 2019. My first suspicion is that the email is malformed, or perhaps the date is encoded in a non-standard format. In that situ...

Why do images in old documents fail to appear properly?

If your old Nisus Writer document has an image that appears incorrectly on screen the most likely problem is that the image is using the legacy Mac PICT image data format. PICT images are a very old Apple technology (originally from "classic" OS 9) that has fallen into disrepair and should be consid...
