Re: Diacritics bizzare behaviour

G'day, Marco et al A couple of other thoughts…. Depending on the number of possible rogue character combinations, it may not be too onerous to incorporate them into the spell checker system and thus have the corrections attended to automatically. If you have a file that you simply want to view frequ...

Re: Diacritics bizzare behaviour

G'day, Marco et al It looks as though Martin is working on a fix for you. If you can't wait, it might be worth seeing whether Find & Replace can correct the situation for you. Obviously, you would test this on a copy of a file rather than on the original. You would probably have to do the replacemen...

Re: Diacritics bizzare behaviour

G'day, Marco, Hamid et al I was not able to reproduce this behavior. I copied the characters (one at a time) from the Forum and pasted them into a new Nisus document before saving and closing the document. Reopening the document showed no additional characters. Same behavior whether I did a plain Pa...

Re: Align on a character other than a decimal point

G'day, jfrench1@flash.net et al You can create the illusion that a hyphen (or any other character) is aligned to a tab by preceding the character with a decimal point of minimal size (eg, 1 pt) and using a decimal tab. The decimal point will be invisible at all but very large page zoom settings. If ...

Re: Password protect a file?

G'day, Cliff et al Thanks for that. > "secure as far as any normal wombat is concerned" Your brute force allusion is very apt. Given that Australian folklore has it that hitting a wombat with a car does far more damage to the car than the size of the animal would suggest, it is indeed reassuring. (A...

Re: Password protect a file?

G'day, Amontillado et al The idea of using a sparse image here is interesting. As I understand it, one of the problems with sparse images is that they don't automatically shrink in size when contained data is deleted. However, there is a Terminal command that can accomplish this. I confess, though, ...

Re: Password protect a file?

G'day, Martin et al Thanks for the tip about compressing files, Martin. I hadn't realized that setting a password was an option there. It will suit my purpose. Compatibility with other applications was not a problem for me. Apple's Pages application doesn't seem to worry about this either, as it off...

G'day, editor10 et al

Not as far as I am aware. It would be top of my list for feature requests.

Re: How to immediately drop a selection

G'day, birnie et al Welcome to Nisus Writer. I haven't experienced this, so I agree with Vanceone that some Accessibility setting would be a good place to start; however, I can find no relevant setting amongst the Accessibility settings in my operating system. So I'm afraid I have no solution here, ...

Re: Automatic Ordinals?

G'day, Vanceone et al This is a really interesting problem, but I'm afraid I only have time at present for some remarks and hints. The Custom Date & Time command does not allow for conditional text which ordinal suffixes require. I always use ISO 8601 formatting for dates and times; it has many adva...

Re: Powerfind for Near?

G'day, wF et al 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...

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

G'day, UsableThought02 et al Vanceone's suggestion of a "New from Template…" command is a good one. Remember, too, that you can always save a document that has all the characteristics you want as a stationery pad in the Finder. Just tick the relevant checkbox in the file's Get Info window.
