"Space before" at top of page, again

So more than seven years after I first complained about this [1], more than a decade after other people made the same complaint [2], there's still no good, simple, sensible way to achieve the standard manuscript format guideline of starting a new chapter one-third to halfway down the page. I'm still...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

Thanks for trying. I came up with another hack: if you don't need more than 8 points of space before or after, you can fake it with a white table border.

Space around lists, quotations, etc.

I'd like to format lists, block quotations, and various other things such that there's no space between the list items (or between paragraphs in a block quotation), but there is a space between the list (or block) and the paragraphs before and after. text.png So far I have two solutions, but they bo...

Re: NWPro 3.0 macro ref

For what it's worth, I think Mojave has a bug in the OS global grammar/spellcheck, where grammar checking can't be disabled. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8569002 I'm not sure how NWP interacts with the global OS checks, but I only started seeing some of these false flags after I upgraded to ...

Re: Best way to add space at top of page (e.g. chapter title

When you say 'redefining the style', you mean, just living with not having space above your chapter titles?

Re: Best way to add space at top of page (e.g. chapter title

Lovely. It seems like a long-standing issue -- are there just not many users in the Nisus community that lay things out this way?

The table solution seems like even more of a hassle than the blank line, though since I'm not fully up on NWP tables yet, maybe there's some trick to it I'm not seeing.

Best way to add space at top of page (e.g. chapter titles)

So, I want my chapter titles to be (for instance) three inches down from the top margin. Coming from the MS Word world, I'm used to just setting "page break before" and "space before = 3 inches" on my chapter-title styles. This doesn't work in NWP, because NWP ignores space before at the top of the ...
