Re: Weird paragraph style behavior with TOC

By 'TOC' do you mean the navigator pane? In that case I am pretty sure I have experienced the same thing.

Re: Headings and Content - Automation

Yes, what you want is definitely possible. There are a number of ways to do it. One method is as follows: Define a heading style which has a list style as part of its definition. That way your headings will automatically be numbered in sequence. Make sure the list style you use is set to "continue n...

Re: arab numerals - roman numerals

And here also a version for the reverse conversion. Again I used the input/output of Kino's macro, and just 'simplified' the conversion. I also 'loosened' the types of numerals the macro accepts. ### Roman Numeral to Arabic Numeral ### # Convert Roman numeral(s) in selection(s) to Arabic numeral(s)....

Re: arab numerals - roman numerals

Well I think it is probably wrong to think that Roman numerals are numbers in any sense that we know. They really just an abbreviatory way to write out numbers as words. One thing though is that Roman numerals reflect pretty directly the numbers as represented on an abacus. Presumably Romans would n...

Re: arab numerals - roman numerals

I know Kino is a very clever person, and excellent macro writer. So Roman numerals are much too stupid a technology for him. I think his approach to this problem is way too obscure. Sometimes less is more. So here is my approach. I have stolen Kino's excellent approach to handling the input, but I r...

Re: How to make Macros?

Actually, Nisus Writer Pro is a bit more capable than phspaelti suggests. If you add a bookmark to your document and then insert a cross-reference to that bookmark you can jump to the bookmarked text by double-clicking the cross-reference. This is explained in the User's Guide. I hope that helps. M...

Re: How to make Macros?

Actually, no. This is not what macros are at all. A macro is the ability to combine simple commands into a larger, complex command. What you are looking for is the ability to create a link within a document and this is unfortunately something that Nisus can't do. Nisus allows the following: - to cre...

Re: Borderless printing of images

It sounds like you are putting the images in-line. I would make the images float. This allows you to have the images in the margin, and even overlapping the edge of the page.

Yes, Section Break (Same Page) works as if it were Section Break (Next Page) for a page having a footnote. I hope this oddity will be fixed in a near future.
Well, there you go. I guess people like me, who never use footnotes, don't know about these things :)

Re: Headings in the header

But you can insert a section break "same page". Then there will be no page break. If you want the text of the header to change, you will need to insert a section break in NWP. As far as I know there is no other way. Anyhow to recapitulate: what you are looking for is the ability to insert automatic ...

Re: printing Comments in Nisus Pro

I'm not sure why Martin is so quick to dismiss a macro solution. The following is a 'quick and dirty' macro that would seem to do the job, but it has not been really battle tested. Use at your own risk (Place the cursor at the top of your file to start.) $selRange = TextSelection.activeRange :Insert...

Re: Changing text size by the Size:Increase By menu option

Hello Paul, there are at least two ways you can chain macros together. Let's assume you have 3 macros: Macro_A, Macro_B, Macro_C. You could write another macro like this: Macro_A Macro_B Macro_C That should work fine. From your comments I am thinking maybe you tried pasting the actual macro code of ...

Re: Splash Screen & Text Box

I just keep Nisus open and running 24/7. So I guess I don't see the splash screen too often, or worry about how long it takes to load.

Re: How to customize header ?

Have you tried using styles? You can adjust the styles to your liking using the Style sheet view. Or perhaps you are talking about a separator line (to separate the header from the document)? The following methods can be used: Use a leader tab Insert a line graphic (You'll have to make the graphic i...

Re: soft hyphen macro

Just to flog a dead horse (and beat my own drum 8) ) replace the Nisus repository macro with the macro I provided a few comments ago in this thread. That macro will check and make sure you have hyphenation on.
