Re: hyperlink reference to bibliography

That kind of file size could happen with embedded images or PDFs. I know that I have a 133 page document, which, unfortunately, has about 80 of those pages as inserted PEFS (a sort of appendix). File size is about 24 MB (a pain to email!) and it takes about 10 seconds for an autosave. Maybe 15. It's...

Re: Continued footnotes

I wondered if the divider line was it. Related question: I frequently see court opinions where footnote 5, say, starts on the page. It's long. Has the [continued...] symbol at the bottom to show it's on the next page. The page again has the footnote reference number 5, with [...continued] as the fir...

Continued footnotes

So I'm perhaps missing something. I work in a field with lengthy footnotes that very frequently span more than one page. Is there a way to have some sort of [continued...] symbol or other way of marking a footnote that easily lets the reader know that the note spills over onto the next page? I could...

Re: Indesign problem

Could you just export the table of contents and index as separate files, import them separately, and place the 180 odd pages left? So import 3 files?

Re: Indesign problem

Try saving it as an "RTFD" file and importing it. If you don't need to edit the text in InDesign, you could export a PDF from Nisus and place that. Or, try selecting everything in your Nisus Document, including the table of contents and index, and then copying it to the clipboard, then pasting it in...

Any way to listen in the Macro language?

So I was wondering if there is a way to essentially register an observer or listener to listen for events and then run code. In particular, I'm thinking of asynchronous functions that run a long time... is there a way to essentially call a long running piece of code, and then get notified when its d...

Re: Create array from word list?

I'd love a version of Map, Reduce, and a few other functional programming concepts! And Lambdas. Recursion? Maybe not... a for loop should do most of that.

Highlinting Indexed text

So I'm not sure, but is there a way to highlight indexed text or otherwise mark it so by just looking at some text I can see at a glance whether it has been marked for indexing? Something akin to "Show invisibles" that will show indexing? I realize that if the indexing palette is open, putting the c...

Re: Removing Periods after Footnote Numerals

When you say "Sample footnote window" are you talking about the text in the preview pane of the style sheet? Because in the footnote style sheet, there is an option under "note References" where you can control the period; it appears in the "after text" box. Delete that period and it should delete it.

Re: Table header repeating on multiple pages

A very hacky method could be to stick a one row table in your page header. That will repeat over all the pages (I suggest making this a section, so the header only goes over the pages that have your table on it).

Not ideal, but if you have 200 pages of table might be worth looking into.

Re: Automatic Ordinals?

Thank you Porvadur! Tiny tweak on my part (oddly enough, superscripting the ordinal is not really a good thing--but then, legal document formatting is persnickety) and it works wonderfully! Thanks again! I do agree with Adryan that this is a hard problem, moving towards a more generic case than my s...

Automatic Ordinals?

So I frequently use a custom time string in my documents: "Dated this 3rd day of March, 2021". It's tedious, of course, to type that in every time, and luckily Nisus has a custom date/time format in the Insert menu. Questions, though: can I save my custom automatic date/time command so it can be eas...

Re: No License key for App Store, so how to I get out of demo mode?

One of the FAQ's suggests that after opening Nisus, go to the Nisus Writer Pro menu and click on "purchase Nisus Writer". At hat point, Nisus will detect the App Store purchase and, presumably, no longer be in demo mode. Worth a shot! Also, if you do have further issues I know Martin can straighten ...

Re: How to make a new document from a DIFFERENT template?!

There is two kinds of templates: the "default" template that is the Nisus New File template (and it's associated New Text File and New Macro file templates) that are used when you click the "new document command. Those are special templates and extensive instructions for modifying those are found in...
