Re: add line number to a selected text

Limiting such macros to selections is actually a pain, since those selections exist only in the GUI. For that kind of macro, it might make more sense to go with variant 1. But I have adjusted it anyway :D Of course the results will only be as sensible as the selection you run them on. (Should work f...

Re: add line number to a selected text

Hello Nobumi, It's been a while :wink: The first thing to do for this problem is to decide on a reasonable algorithm for how to do this. There is one problem though. Humans would just proceed from front to back, but as I'm sure you know, adding such numbers works best in reverse. That can only be do...

Re: Selecting cels in a table

I guess I don't see the difficulty. But then I've never consulted the manual on this :P Click in one cell. Then hold <Shift> and click in another cell. This will select the span including those two cells. You can extend using shift with the arrow keys. Shift-Command-A and Option-Command-A work to se...

Re: Library of styles

You should drag the style to the actual document window, not the palette. If you hover over the document it should give you a green "+". That will let you know that the style is being added. :P :drunk: :P Okay. And I stand corrected. First, apparently you need to drag onto the palette after all. Ei...

Re: Library of styles

Not quite there. How do I drag from Library to the current list of style in the new document I have opened? Note attached screen shot of what happens to me when I try to do that. Hi Ray, Wow that screen shot is a work of art 8) I guess my explanation was not that great after all. You should drag th...

Re: Is this possible?

Okay. Well you can try the following, and see if it excludes the right bits from your collection.

Re: Is this possible?

Your earlier example was (5min, 15min). Can a time parentheses have several times separated by comma-space like that? The basic pattern for (5 min) etc. will be like this: Find '\(\d+ min\)', 'Ea' If multiple times are allowed, as described, it will be like this: Find '\(\d+ min(?:, \d+ min)*\)', 'E...

Re: Is this possible?

Hello again MacH, I am glad the macro worked for you. As far as the text bits you want removed; if you can describe the relevant patterns, or give samples of the relevant phrases, I'm sure that part could be added to the current macro. As to the general question of writing macros: I am, as I'm sure ...

Hello MacH, Anything is possible :D I have a number of questions about what your are trying to do. It might help to explain what your file looks like and what you are trying to achieve. Generally if you want to combine a set of editing steps into one "action" you will use what is called a macro . A ...

Re: Library of styles

Hello ray, If you want your style "Bullet" to appear automatically in every new document you make from now on you shouldn't save it in the Style Library. You should add it to your Nisus New File. You can get access to that file in Preferences > New File > Advanced. The Style Library is more like a r...

Re: how move items up / down a list?

Hello Axbax,
The problem you are seeing has nothing to do with upgrading. It comes about because the last item in your list does not have a return. But now that you mention it, I can provide a fix for that.

Re: 2nd-level TOC entries as a single paragraph

I also just wanted to ask: this way of formatting a TOC, is this still a thing? I mean, it was very popular in the 19th century. I'm getting flashbacks of Twain and Dickens. Is this maybe something that Nisus should consider as a feature? Considering this problem: I was first wondering if one could ...

Re: 2nd-level TOC entries as a single paragraph

Hamid is basically suggesting that you create the TOC "by hand" :? Of course he is correct in that the thing you want to achieve can't be done with any built-in feature. He also points out one good feature here: You can tamper with the created TOC and still have it continue to work, sort of. Adoptin...

Re: Numbered table-rows

Add the column on the left (You've already done that.) Place your selection in this column and select the column. (You can do this with <shift><command>A ) Choose New List Style… Choose the "Numbered" option and check that "Continue through Document" is checked. Give it a name like "Table Numbering...
