Re: Macro to insert inputted string before digit(s):digit(s)

G’day, NisusUser et al Thanks for clarifying that. Here’s a Macro that I hope does the trick for you. Insert Book Designation.nwm It assumes that the selection includes the (soft or hard) return immediately preceding the first verse reference you wish to amplify. It also assumes you want a space bet...

Re: Macro to insert inputted string before digit(s):digit(s)

G'day, NisusUser et al There is a big problem here, in that the second verse reference in your example (viz, "10:15") is not preceded by either a paragraph return or a soft return, and yet it seems from the transformed text you cite that you still wanted it preceded by your chosen text str...

Re: Help with Macro sentence spacing

G'day, Philip et al Mark is quite right when he says we really need to see the Macro that Julie used. Pending such enlightenment, and perhaps more out of pursuit of the intellectual exercise than anything, I still think it likely that she failed to insert the footnote reference immediately after the...

Re: Help with Macro sentence spacing

G'day, Mark et al Just so. I usually have Show Invisibles activated all the time, and it is quite irritating to see all the extraneous junk people have in their text. Leading and trailing paragraph spaces are very common. One has to be a little bit careful about replacing each string of spaces with ...

Re: Help with Macro sentence spacing

G'day, Julie et al Double spacing after concluding sentence punctuation was common practice in the days of typewriters because they used monospaced fonts. Although there are some computer fonts that are monospaced (eg, Courier), most are proportional and with them it's best to use single spacing and...

Re: Loop through open documents

G'day, Ted et al Regular visitors will know that I have only rudimentary knowledge of the Nisus Macro Language, but I felt sure the answer would lie in at least one of the supplied Macros. And indeed there is a snippet of code for looping through all open documents in the Macro titled "Save All...

Re: Word Wrap and Plain-Text Paste

G'day, Mark, Al et al No, it doesn't. And I think the reason this thing persists with Al's pasting is that it is a No Break Space (U+00A0) which is treated pretty much like any other character and not part of formatting per se . All occurrences can easily be replaced with ordinary Spaces using Find ...

Re: what is the real extension of old Nisus Writer 6.5 ?

G'day, JD et al The file extension is probably just hidden. Click on the file to select it in the Finder, then File > Get Info. About halfway down the columnar window that opens, you should see a section titled "Name & Extension". That should provide the information you want, as well a...

Re: Align tables

G'day, Geoff et al As far as I can see, there is nothing in the NWP documentation that specifically describes what sort of object Tables are. They don't function in quite the same way as most Shapes do. In a way, they seem to be akin to a single-character paragraph. The only way I could think of to ...

Re: Closing Quotation Marks

Re: Result message after Find & Replace

G'day, Xuanying et al

You're probably right. To be consistently pedantic, though, the message would have to cater for various possibilities with "Replace & Find", such as "Replaced 1 occurrence, found no other occurrences".

Cheers,
Adrian
