Re: Switch to secondary font

Bottom line, whatever method works for you, works. The method I presented has nothing to do with Nisus specifically. It is an Apple System preference panel, and works globally (insofar as your globe is the Apple OS). You can switch languages (fonts and input method) in any application by the same me...

Re: Switch to secondary font

If I understand correctly, you are writing an English (or other Western) language document using, e.g., Courier, and now and then you need to type and display ひらがな hiragana. I don't know anything about 'alternate fonts', but to get Japanese (hiragana, katakana, kanji) in a document, you only need to...

Re: Macro to insert inputted string before digit(s):digit(s)

If understood correctly, you want to: (1) type "12:3 and some text and then 13:4 15:123 and some text and then maybe 45:3." (2) select "12:3 and some text and then 13:4 15:123" and apply the macro, which must prompt you for the book ref, to get (3) Gen 12:3 and some text and then...

Re: Glossary item executed inside a Macro?

Don't know what you are trying to do with your macro, but this might help. You can select any block of text (including multiple paragraphs) and trigger the Expand Glossary command, manually or by macro, to expand all abbreviations within the selected text. Depending on how your glossary expansions a...

glossary expansion shortcut in 3.22 on OSX12.s

For many years up to and including NWP3.22 on my mid-2014 MBPro now running OSX 11.6.4 (Big Sur), glossary expansions have been enabled by a single SPACE (or punctuation) character. For example, if the glossary entry is mm = millimeter, typing mm(space) gets "millimeter(space)" with the cu...

Re: Turning the clock back… (The Russo-Ukrainian War)

Dear Sir Þorvarður,

Don't know if you created this, but well done!

Nisus is not about politics, so no more from me.

Using function keys on OS11.6

Using os11.6 on my 2014 MacBook Pro, how can I re-enable the function keys to function as I want on MY computer? For years I have used F8 to compare two documents by running Kino's old macro. Hitting F8 now starts the Music application, which I do not want. I'd like to delete that, and other Apple a...

Hi, Adrian. I knew nothing about sparse disk images, so diddled a google and up popped https://computing.sas.upenn.edu/natsci/sparse Item 4 says "You should now choose the type of encryption, the recommended 128-bit AES encryption should be fine." so there should be no loss of data upon de...

Re: Password protect a file?

Wouldn't that require both parties using Nisus? None of my clients ever did.

Alternatively, you could encrypt the file with pgp/gpg, zip, or other encryptable format.

Re: Citation Cross-reference problem

I always find Philip's tutorials educating. As to [quote]I have forgotten why you always do things in reversed order.[/quote] unless memory fails, it is because making changes in the text from top-down can change the location of text below where the change is made, and that can create problems.

Re: Macro for French typography?

Nisus let's you create macros in many ways. If what you want to do is basically create a macro with three consecutive find-replace operations, you can let Nisus do most of the work for you. Under the Replace with: gear wheel in the F/R dialog, you will find a Macroize... item at the bottom. Select M...

Re: How to move the insertion point into a header?

Mostly just curious, but since identifying/selecting a specific header seems to be difficult in the macro language, wouldn't it be easier to manually select the desired header and then run the macro? Whatever text is to be pasted would have already been copied/generated anyway for the macro to work ...
