Re: Urgent help needed

G'day, Yohanan et al

It sounds like an inadvertently inserted text box.

Single-click on the number to select the box and the line tethering it to the anchor, then hit the Delete key.

Does that work for you?

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Martin et al Sorry, Martin, it was meant as a joke, playing on your "One Macro to Rule Them All" appellation and the fact that you were second-guessing the user's intention on the basis of how many paragraphs they selected in a List. A compliment, really, on the macro’s wide-ranging utility. ...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Martin et al Seems to work well. A worthwhile addition to the macro collection, Martin. Thanks for that. While you’re in the business of second-guessing the user’s intentions, though, I don’t suppose you could tweak the macro just that teensy-weensy little bit more so it automatically and con...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Martin et al That’s good, Martin, except that it only works for Lists, by which I mean lists that employ a List Style. I myself frequently use lists that are not subject to a List Style. And it won’t work for quotation blocks and the like. However, I think that removing the first “^” from the...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Martin et al Thanks heaps for that, Martin. As far as I can tell, this pretty much solves chronodm's original problem. The only caveat is that the selection must commence with a Paragraph Start. (But it can finish anywhere within a paragraph, with or without a paragraph return.) I had a look ...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G’day, Philip et al Thanks for getting involved in this topic, Philip. I understand your philosophical objection to the (albeit temporary) document modification I propose, but I don’t mind using such tactics if all else fails. One of my philosophical approaches to programming is to strive for genera...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Martin et al It should be possible to achieve differential spacing before, within and after a block of text without the need to create more Styles. Part of my difficulty in trying to automate that spacing was that I could find no quick way of navigating to the first and last paragraphs in a l...

Re: Changing starting page number

G’day, writerhoward et al In the Section Palette, go to the Page Numbering bit and change the number in the “Restart At” field, then hit Return. This seems to work even though “Restart At” and the checkbox are greyed out. That field would probably be better named “Start At” because it’s clear from t...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G’day, Þorvarður et al If I’ve understood you correctly, Þorvarður, essentially what you’re doing is getting the paragraphs immediately preceding and following the block (consisting of one or more paragraphs which could represent a quotation or a list or whatever) to do the work of space-setting abo...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, chronodm et al Full marks for creativity! However, as I think has been discussed in another thread, Tables become problematic when they straddle page breaks (virtual or otherwise). In the case of a single-row Table — which is what is required for simplicity in the present context — the entire...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Vanceone et al I usually do the manual override thing too, but I thought I'd have a play with a quick-and-dirty macro approach. The following seems to work, for lists anyway. But note that it takes advantage of what I consider to be a bug; viz, that the Select Next in Style command, when used...

Re: different first page header height

G’day, Vanceone et al My investigation into this reveals a bug! First, just to clarify a few things…. In the Margins Palette, the Header Height is the vertical height of the rectangle allocated to the Header. The Top Margin is the vertical distance from the top of the page (sheet of paper) to the bo...

Re: Find/Replace Dialog

G'day, Martin et al

Thanks for that, Martin.

No, I tried the inline button, but it would only place the image at the beginning or the end of the posting.

But at least it’s there now for people to comment on.

Cheers,

Re: Find/Replace Dialog

G’day, Martin et al Sorry about the image’s failing to display. It did when I originally posted it. I have had a lot of difficulty trying to re-post it now. Hard to get it to appear only once, and in the correct position. I tried drag-and-drop, inline button, img tag, URL with and without attachment...
