Re: Finding superscript ordinal numbers

G’day, Frank et al I suspect you have just copied and pasted the Find expression from my Forum posting. But the Forum superimposes additional formatting which will be sought by the Formatting Sensitive stipulation but is unlikely to be present in your document. If you type in the expression afresh y...

Re: Finding superscript ordinal numbers

G’day, johseb et al Let me restate the problem: You would prefer that one or more results in the Results window did not appear there. Right? As far as I can see, you can’t just delete an item in the Results list and have it deselected in the main document. You can do a Cut (not a Delete) operation i...

Re: Finding superscript ordinal numbers

G'day, Philip et al Indeed. Not because it's at all likely, but just to emphasize (yet again!) the importance of knowing what's in your document before you attack it with the powerful tools Nisus places in your hands, those in the back row need to be very careful that an exponent expression in a mat...

Re: Finding superscript ordinal numbers

G'day, Mark et al

The caveat with that approach is that it will de-superscript all superscripts, not just those associated with ordinal numbers. Know your document!

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Finding superscript ordinal numbers

G’day, Frank et al Using PowerFind Pro, put the following expression in the Find field: (\d)(st|nd|rd|th) Select the second parenthesized expression and superscript it by choosing Format > Baseline > Superscript. Also tick the Formatting Sensitive checkbox there. Put the following expression in the ...

Re: Is "Find Next" possible by attribute (text colour)

G'day, Philip et al All these methods are fine, but there is a caveat: it depends on how the color was applied in the first place. By this I mean that they will only work if the chosen color is exactly the same in each instance. In all probability it is, but one way in which things could be otherwis...

Happy New Year

G'day, all Given our relative proximity to the Date Line, Australia is among the first to see the New Year in. So allow me to take this opportunity to thank the entire Nisus community for their collaborative support over the past year, with special thanks to Martin for being such a frequent contribu...

Very potent with such spirits.

(From a couple of lines back, for those up there in the back row.)

Re: Indents

G'day, Martin et al > "The left/head indent should be used as a tabbing location." I guess this is where we disagree, but I'm not about to ditch NWP on this account! I don't have Microsoft Word, for second opinions or otherwise. With respect to Styles, I frequently use them, but I don't feel obliged...

Re: Indents

G'day, Amontillado, Martin et al Thanks for looking at this. As I said, I'm fully aware that beginning a paragraph with a tab character is not exactly ideal, but I confess I sometimes resort to this quick-and-dirty ploy, only to be confronted with what I consider aberrant behavior. I demonstrate it ...

Indents

G'day, all The situation with paragraph indents has long bugged me. I know it's not usually a great idea to begin a paragraph with a tab character, but even so, hanging indents should produce an expected result regardless, which they don't. Start with the first line indent and the left indent aligne...

Re: line thickness of an underline

G'day, fbloom et al No need to be sorry: the only way to change the thickness of an underline in NWP is by changing the font size — or the window magnification! An alternative would be to use a Shape, because you can change the thickness of a line. However, Shapes can't be attached to characters, so...

Re: Nisus Writer Pro open Pages document as blank

G'day, jlentini et al

Same thing happens with Mojave.

I think native Pages documents are a special format. If you export a Pages document to RTF format, you can then open it in Nisus Writer Pro.

Re: NWP documents don't remember Apple Dock status

G'day, wF et al I haven't tested what happens to Nisus files in the Dock after a computer Restart, but they do survive there on my computer after a Quit and relaunch of NWP. They will, of course, have to be relaunched in order for subsequent calls to the Dock to open their windows almost immediately...

Re: Powerfind ninja needed for search question

G'day, Philip et al Thanks for the detailed explanation, Philip. Even so, something was not gelling for me. So I looked really hard at your post and again at the Find & Replace dialog box. It finally dawned on me that it's a colon, not a period, that follows the question mark. Just not obvious with ...
