Re: Extract digits from a text object

Thanks to Philip for covering this topic and giving some nice examples. I'll only reply to add a few technical terms and links. $text = 'Lesson 11' $text.find '\d+', 'E¢' Prompt $0 This works because of the ¢ option specific to the Nisus macro language. It converts the standard regular-expression (r...

Re: Diacritics bizzare behaviour

It looks as though Martin is working on a fix for you. If you can't wait, it might be worth seeing whether Find & Replace can correct the situation for you. We are indeed working on a fix for affected users. I'm sorry for the heartache in the meantime. As I mentioned earlier, please contact us if y...

Re: Interrupted database indexing: must it always start over again?

Thank you for the feedback Kevin. Your suggestions seem like good ideas to me. It would be nice if you could pause indexing, and at the least it should be more clear what's going on if you close the progress window without explicitly cancelling. Thanks again, and sorry for the confusion.

Re: Diacritics bizzare behaviour

This appears to be an issue that's new to macOS Big Sur, at least for some users of Nisus Writer Pro. It does not always occur. We're not sure what exactly triggers the bug on some systems but not others. The fonts installed on your system may be a factor, but that's not conclusive. We're looking in...

Re: how to Move Prefs from NWP2 to NWP3?

I realized that the steps I gave in my prior post aren't exactly right. Nisus Writer Pro version 2 won't run on your new partition using Big Sur. Your systems are just too far apart (~7 years). There's no single version of Nisus Writer that will run on both to bridge the gap. You should still be abl...

Re: Align on a character other than a decimal point

Unfortunately Nisus Writer Pro does not have this capability. Currently the app is limited to using decimal points (periods) to tab-align text. We do have an open feature request in our issue tracker for what you described. I'll be sure to add your vote. Hopefully we can add this feature for some fu...

Re: how to Move Prefs from NWP2 to NWP3?

I'm sorry, I didn't realize that you are using such an old system version (OS X 10.10). You're going to have a harder time with this process. No version of Nisus Writer Pro 3 will run on your old partition still using OS X 10.10. So you'll have to come at the process from the other end, using your n...

Re: Powerfind Browser doesn't work.

This is a problem with the PowerFind browser on older system versions like Mac OS X 10.11. I'm sorry, but we won't be able to work around the issue, which is ultimately caused by Apple's developer's tools. At this point 10.11 is a very old system (in Apple terms). Your options are: 1. Upgrade your M...

Re: how to Move Prefs from NWP2 to NWP3?

I guess Apple's signature for the installer can't be validated on Yosemite. I have no idea why. It's something handled by macOS.

I'd skip the installer and instead download the zip archive of Nisus Writer Pro.

Re: Center and Right Alignment Buttons

Are you using the version of Nisus Writer Pro from the Mac App Store? That would explain why you are still seeing the icon reversal. Apparently only the direct release (from nisus.com) included this last minute fix. The App Store version had already been approved for release by Apple and so wasn't r...

Re: how to Move Prefs from NWP2 to NWP3?

Hi Cris! Nisus Writer Pro version 3 will automatically detect and import settings from version 2. I recommend that you use it to help you carry forward your settings to your new partition: 1. Install version 3 on your current partition (where you are currently using version 2). 2. Run version 3 and ...

Re: Password protect a file?

Wouldn't that require both parties using Nisus? None of my clients ever did. Password protection has been a popular request from our users over the years, but credneb is exactly right: there's no way for us to add such a feature that will remain compatible with other apps. RTF does have password pr...

Re: hyperlink reference to bibliography

One of my files has grown to 1.8 GB despite having only 310,615 words. This is highly unusual. I suspect that you have inserted very large images in your file, you have inadvertently enabled tracked changes, or both. As a first step I would use the menu File > Image Analysis . From there you can cl...

Re: Advice sought: merge documents including images

Although Nisus Writer Pro does include a Document Merge feature that handles CSV files, it can't handle your particular situation because of the customized images. You could have a merge template document with a single non-variable image, but you won't be able to customize the image based on each CS...

Re: Continued footnotes

This is an interesting request, thank you for bringing it up. I think any continuation symbols or text would need to be fully customizable, both at the end of the page and start of the next page. I'll made a note that we should consider adding this feature to our note styles. Thanks!
