Edit > Convert > From Unicode Code Points

Thanks for the clarification, Martin.

FYI, I just used the Feedback reporter to report as a bug that fact that "Edit > Convert > From Unicode Code Points" is always greyed out.

Unicode

Perfect! Thanks! Another question: How could I have figured out that \xC2 means non-breaking space? I typed c2 or C2 or \xC2 in a NWP document, selected it, and attempted to use the menu command Edit > Convert > From Unicode Code Points, but the command was grayed out. I cannot figure out how to mak...

Error msg

Thanks, Martin!

However, when I run the macro, NWP produces the following error msg:

Title Case

Searching the web for an algorithm to convert text to Title Case, I discovered a Perl script written by John Gruber and Aristotle Pagaltzis: https://github.com/ap/titlecase/blob/master/titlecase I would like to embed this Perl script into a NWP macro so I can apply it to the current selection in a d...

RTF instead of DOC?

Purpendicular: Instead of saving as DOC, can you simply send your Nisus RTF file to your colleagues who use Word? RTF is one of Word's native document formats, so Word can edit and save RTF documents without converting them to DOC. When I send Nisus RTF documents to Word users, they always accept th...

California Pleading format

Use Page Borders, not a text box. See user guide pages 281-282. Here are some additional tips that I provided in response to questions on a listserv for lawyers who use Macs: I don't see a way to create the double-line on the left and single line on the right? In the Page Borders palette, the 4 icon...

Creation Date same for original and fixed versions

I was confused trying to distinguish the original and fixed versions. Perhaps the following will prevent others from being similarly confused. I discovered that the original version and the fixed version of Nisus Writer Pro.app are indistinguishable by their creation and modification dates. Apparent...

List numbers inadvertently restarted when copy & paste

If I copy & paste paragraphs that have list numbers, I find that sometimes the pasted paragraph retains the original list number rather than being renumbered in sequence, and that paragraphs subsequent to the pasted paragraph then are renumbered sequentially. For example, if I insert a copy of parag...

Feature request: Warning before save formatted text as .txt

Erik Richard Sørensen and I both would like to request this feature: Both of us have made the mistake of opening a plain text file (.txt extension) in NWP, then adding formatting to it, and then saved it under the same filename with the same .txt extension. Of course, this saves it as a plain text d...

Alternative script using Copy & Paste

The following script also seems to work. Like Geoff, I have a list style associated with the paragraph style. However, for some reason, pasting plain text seems to change the list style to None without the "Menu 'Lists:Use None' command in Martin's script. Is Martin's last script a more reliable app...

Strikethrough with Color

Is it possible for a macro to apply the strikethrough attribute to selected text so that the strikethrough has a desired color such as red? I know I can define a character style that includes a red strikethrough, but I'd prefer to apply it as a text attribute so that I will not override the existing...

Re: .nwm opening in TextEdit?

Sometimes the global "Open With" setting in "Get Info" works more reliably if you first apply it to just the selected document, close the Get Info window, then re-open Get Info and then click the button to "Change All".

Re: Pleading paper problems

One solution would be for Nisus to implement a "watermark" or "background" feature: a page that is superimposed on every page in the document. Meanwhile, a possible workaround would be to save a Nisus document to PDF, then use Acrobat Pro (or another PDF utility such as PDF Pen or PDF Clerk) to supe...
