Re: Copy disabled

Every now and then Nisus also stops responding to any keyboard input for me. I have never been able to correlate this to any specific action I have taken, but the problem has been resolved by quitting and restarting Nisus. I have usually been able to quit using the mouse, and when not, cmd-escape to...

Re: Japanese top>bottom, right>left

I pasted the text in Word, which makes it very simple to format with a couple of clicks. Alas.

Re: Japanese top>bottom, right>left

Thank you. Unfortunately it is not a solution. As the instructions say: "The vertical text boxes are not a solution for full-page vertical text layout, but rather an extra feature to embellish your default horizontal text layout." I needed a full solution for a document written in Japanese, not an e...

Japanese top>bottom, right>left

The reason I started using Nisus many years ago was for its Japanese support. Until now, I have never had a need for J other than left>right, top>bottom as in English. Nisus supports right>left for Hebrew and other languages in horizontal lines from top to bottom. Is there a way to get Japanese in t...

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

Have you installed the 3.01 update?
Spelling problems were one of the fixes, and 3.01 fixed the problem for me.

Re: character recognition

Perhaps the problem is with Libre Office. Like Philip, opening the untitled1.doc directly in Nisus shows no problem. When I open the untitled1.doc in LO, everything appears fine. But when the document is then saved in LO as rtf, and Nisus opens that rtf file, the second line appears in Greek charact...

Re: Stopping Cro Magnon man

I hadn't opened the New File file itself, but doing so and making the settings worked.
Thanks.

Re: Stopping Cro Magnon man

Martin, Thank you for the reply. I was referring to the icons that appear down the left side of the window at the first line of each paragraph where formatting changed. The icon in the status bar makes it simple to turn displaying the icons on/off. I was hoping there is a way to change the default f...

Stopping Cro Magnon man

I found how to turn the palletes off in a New Document. How can I stop Cro Magnon man and his children from showing up automatically in the left border with every new document into which I paste text from another document? Show Changes Icons in Margin toggles it in an open document. How can I change...

Re: Quirky behavior in 3.0

Martin, Thank you. The absolute path bit is helpful and made the changes. Is there a more concise way to write the line that finds the next 2-byte Japanese character -- including hiragana, katakana, and kanji, not including numbers and punctuation? Regarding execution of this and similar macros, it ...

Re: Quirky behavior in 3.0

is the problem that the macro is slow and thus takes effect later than you expect? Yes. Here is one: Find '(?:\\p{Hiragana}|(?<=\\p{Hiragana})\\u30FC)|(?:\\p{Katakana}|(?<=\\p{Katakana})\\u30FC)|(?:\\p{Han})', 'E' Macro:editing macros:SetEnglishFont where SetEnglishFont is # SetEnglishFont Format:La...

Slower menu macros in Pro 3.0

While different from Simeon's problem, I have found a different one of delayed response = slowed work. I use glossary entries extensively, and numerous macros that are as simple as deleting text from the current cursor position to various positions in the text below. Glossary expansions are not grea...

Re: NWPro 3.0 macro ref

Indeed. After starting up this morning, it all looks normal.
It may have been from upgrading from within Pro2 and not then quitting and rebooting Nisus.

NWPro 3.0 macro ref

Just upgraded, and 3.0 looks great. Opened the macro reference to see what might be new there, and found that just about everything has a red dotted underline.

Is this just here, or is there a reason?

Re: How do I apply a template to an existing document (RTF)

I wrote "These files used to be in the (hidden) system Library folder, but no longer. "

That should be "These _folders_ used to be...."
