Re: Powerfind for Near?

G'day, wF et al It looks like it was bundled with NWP. Find Nearby Words.nwm Thanks! As you said, it's preset to work within a single paragraph as the neighbourhood. And also it doesn't distinguish lower and upper case, which is somewhat surprising. Anyway, not what I'm needing here (compared to th...

Re: Powerfind for Near?

BTW, I subsequently discovered that there is a Find Nearby Words Macro in the Find set of Macros. It looks at paragraphs rather than the user-specified string neighborhoods you had in mind. That's odd; I don't have that under menu: Macro->Find-> I had looked for that before, expecting to see a Macr...

Re: Powerfind for Near?

This is probably best done using a Macro. But here are some Find expressions you could try, where "gamma" and "delta" are the two words in question. PowerFind, where the square brackets indicate inbuilt PowerFind expressions available via the cogwheel drop-down menu:– [Capture(]gamma[AnyCharacter][...

Powerfind for Near?

Hi, I'm hoping Powerfind can help me with a basic NEAR search, but after studying the examples and manual I need someone to give me a shove in the right direction. Example: I'd like to find all the "Alice" within 20 characters of "Bob". (Or 5, or 50 characters, in different searches.) Is there some ...

Re: Bug? Nisus 3 seemingly randomly "Typesetting Text..." and sluggish, 50% CPU use, in long doc already open for hours

Yes, both of those could help the situation to reduce the amount of background processing. Thanks Martin. Today I looked closely at the CPU usage, and still I feel something is not right about this background processing. Short version: I tested, and changed a comma to a semi-colon in Doc A. With no...

Re: Bug? Nisus 3 seemingly randomly "Typesetting Text..." and sluggish, 50% CPU use, in long doc already open for hours

If Nisus makes any change, it will trigger an autosave at some point. You can watch your window title, where it has the name of your document. If it has (edited)" after your document name, an autosave is in your near future. Some things like scrolling or moving the window don't add an edit, but som...

Re: Bug? Nisus 3 seemingly randomly "Typesetting Text..." and sluggish, 50% CPU use, in long doc already open for hours

If you have a long document, autosave may be one reason why things feel sluggish if Nisus is taking more time than normal to save your document. Thanks Vanceone. And in my context, this would mean repeated autosaves in all the other open documents, maybe? Even if I don't edit in them? I'm not sure ...

Re: Bug? Nisus 3 seemingly randomly "Typesetting Text..." and sluggish, 50% CPU use, in long doc already open for hours

If I edit, say, in the first thousand words of a 400K document, does that mean that all the typesetting from that point onwards is being done over again, every time I make a change? That's more or less correct. If you make an edit somewhere in a document, all the downstream content must be re-types...

Re: Large selections—like 20k words—showing no word, par., or char. counts (bug?)

You should be able to force an update by clicking the stats area (eg: the label that says "1 selection"). That action tells Nisus Writer that you want to recalculate the current stats, even if it takes longer to process. Got it! Works! Thanks Martin. My only regret, on behalf of myself and adryan, ...

G'day, wF et al Short answer: I'm not 100% sure. Longer answer:... Thank you, that's all very helpful. I'll use it when I replace. Since I have a good workaround, I may instead wait until the next update is released before replacing the app. It might not be a corruption, just a quirk in my OS/Nisus...

G’day, wF et al Simply relaunching a problematic application may not be enough. It might be worthwhile reinstalling it. Cheers, Adrian Aha. Good idea. Do you know if I can merely download another one, move the old one into a backup folder, put the new one where it was, and open it? And have all my ...

Large selections—like 20k words—showing no word, par., or char. counts (bug?)

Hi, Brief description: When I select large amounts of text, characteristically over 20,000 words, nothing shows in the Stats pallette, and the bottom of the page just says "1 Selection" instead of showing the number of words. Details: 1. This happens in three different documents (that I've tried so ...

Re: Bug? Nisus 3 seemingly randomly "Typesetting Text..." and sluggish, 50% CPU use, in long doc already open for hours

There's one explanation for the behavior you observed. Is your large document set to Draft View, but the search results can only be displayed in Page View? For example, if the find matches are in the headers/footers. That will force Nisus Writer to paginate your document, to show you the matching t...
