Re: Languagetool integration?

The thing is: LanguageTool is much more than a spell checker. It looks for mistakes in concordance (singular-plural, masculine-feminine, verbal tenses…). And it gives stylistic suggestions: repeated words, better words for a specific context… I even pay for its Pro version. Now, in MacOS, it is comp...

Account on Mastodon?

I’m hoping that some day Nisus will have a Mastodon account. I haven’t found any instances dedicated to typesetting or page layout. Maybe a fitting instance would be typo.social.

Express included in Pro?

I haven't found this on both FAQ pages: does a NW Pro license serve as a NW Express license? I was thinking that it could be nice to have two different customisations. It's not that I don't want to buy NW Express. I'm just checking, in case the Pro license were to make it.

Best wishes to you all.

Re: Character styles, lost during 'Find and replace' macro

Many thanks for your help. Certainly, the properties 'u' and 'U' are not the best approach. Moreover, I should have guessed that the formatting of the first character in the selection was key. Let's say I have a citation in French between guillemets as follows: “citacion-in-French”. I want to change...

Character styles, lost during 'Find and replace' macro

Hello, I'm using a macro to change guillemets for «» and viceversa. It works well, but any character style applied inside the selected text is erased. I tried using the u and U options in the 'Find and Replace' commands, but the macro stopped working. The first part of my macro is as follows: $findq...

Yes, you're right. The Save To command works perfectly well.

Re: 'Save Copy As…' in a macro

Thanks, but I had already tried the 'File:Save Copy As…' line, and the macro stopped there as well. Now I have just tried the "Save As…" command and it has worked. Here is the macro that works: $docActive = Document.active If ! $docActive New Else $docActive File:Save As… End Conclusion: t...

'Save Copy As…' in a macro

After opening a document, I want to run the actions File:Save Copy As… However, the macro stops at 'File'. What am I missing?

Code: Select all

$docActive = Document.active
If $docActive

Thesaurus - other languages than english

I've recently installed the spelling and hyphenation Catalan dictionaries, which are good, constantly updated. It'd be nice to be able to do the same with the thesaurus files. If this was possible, maybe the thesaurus files from the LibreOffice installation would work. I've found them in the install...

A trick with the hyphenation dictionary

A particular case in hyphenation ======================== I installed the Catalan hyphenation *.dic* file in the appropriate folder and it worked well, either in the "Automatic - Normal" mode or in the "Automatic - More Often" one. I had to change the file name, from *ca_ANY.dic*...
