Re: Problem with Section Break (No page break)

Does the paragraph following the section break have "Keep with next" and the following one "Keep together" implemented? if so, is there enough space remaining on the page for the two paragraphs? Just a thought ...

Re: Missing Style Sheets

Yes, I had this problem — if you mean templates. My solution was to click to add a custom folder to the document manager and set it to my Templates folder. My Document Manager points to a "Nisus Documents" folder in my Dropbox and the Templates folder is in that. By doing it that way, its contents a...

Re: Soft Hyphen

……I don't know wether the Soft-hyphen glyph is contained in the font. It's an old one, perhaps not (?) Maybe I should try another font ... but Adobe Jenson is soooo beautiful. I have Adobe Jenson Pro and it does include the soft hyphen (I checked using the "Show Emoji and Symbols" in the flag menu)...

Re: Soft Hyphen

Yes, the red AJenson means another font is being substituted. That's weird, because Adobe Jenson Pro includes soft-hyphens among its glyphs, so why is a substitute being called for? I have no idea. But I'd simply try highlighting that soft-hyphen, maybe including a bit of the surrounding text, then ...

Re: Best site(s) for more-or-less objective info on Macs?

I too say emphatically, "Stay clear of MacKeeper!" When it first came out, I thought it sounded useful and installed it. I ran it and it created absolute havoc on my system, Being a sensible sort of bloke, I had made a bootable back-up of the system before I installed MacKeeper, so I immediately wip...

Re: LibreOfficeImporter hanging

I tested LibreOfficeImporter to import a Word file. After the import was done, LibreOfficeImporter CPU returned to zero. Then I let the computer sleep; upon wake up, LibreOfficeImporter CPU was 0.0%. Same thing here. I too tested it like that, importing .doc's and .docx's of several pages of mixed ...

Re: Facelift?

I too see no point in changing the interface for the sake of changing the interface. As it happens, I use a mixture of drawer and floating palettes. I have the styles palette on the desktop together with the Special Characters palette, and the drawer open for anything else. I prefer the display at 1...

Re: Opening a .Pages file

Not directly; .pages is a proprietary format that Apple won't release to developers. From Pages, export your file to .doc/.docx and open that in Nisus, or if it's the previous version of Pages, export to .rtf and open that.

Re: Prevent table splitting?

Thanks, Mark. What I am looking for, which I will request, is a feature similar to Framemaker in which you can (I don't remember exactly) either set a row to keep with next/previous, or set a table to not split (in which case it splits only if it is too large to fit on a single page IIRC) or set nu...

Re: Prevent table splitting?

Hi Barbara, You have a situation that, in my perception, basically, Nisus are not going to be able to solve. NWP is page-based in its output and pages have finite dimensions, as do lines in whatever font size and interline spacing you have chosen, and paragraphs have finite dimensions including spac...

Re: Alternative Mail-apps

Þorvarður, thanks so much. I thought I had done it, but checked anyway, and no, it was set to Mail.app in the Mail preferences. I've switched it to GyazMail, so I'll see if that works.

Re: Block Quotes and Spacing Before/After

<snip> Generally I too follow Mark's approach, except that two styles might not be enough. In the worst case you would need four styles: one for the first paragraph in a block, one for the last in a block, one for the middle paragraph(s) in a block, and one for paragraphs that form a block on their...

Re: Block Quotes and Spacing Before/After

I've always done it by setting up different paragraph styles for the first paragraph in a block quote and for subsequent paragraphs. For instance, on the simple example you give, I'd set up a "Block quote Greek" or whatever you want to call it, with the required amount of spacing before, none after ...

I don't understand why you're posting this here in the Nisus Writer Pro forum.

Re: Header page numbers aligned on margin with centered head

I'd think I'd do it by putting a centre-tab point in the middle of the ruler for the header, then a right-tab point on the right margin. Then centre your main header text by putting a tab before it, followed by a tab then the page number. If you're using left-right pages, set odd-and-even headers, f...
