Re: unwanted changes

Reading this I am suddenly wondering whether artful really wanted to insert so many section breaks. Perhaps the trouble with headers/footers stems from having used Section breaks where there really only should be page breaks?

Why are you using section breaks?

Re: How to calculate a date

As far as I know, Nisus Macro language is still case sensitive, so you'll need to write: $today = Date.now To get the next day you have basically two methods, simpler: $nextDay = $today.dateByAddingSeconds 86400 …and fancier: $y = $today.year $m = $today.month $d = $today.day + 1 $nextDay = Date.new...

Re: Template not showing in Document Manager

Actually checking some more, I now see that the Templates group in the Document Manager has an "Add Files to Group" command (using the control key). My set-up is actually that I have the "Nisus New File", "Macro Template" and the "Plain Text Template" in a folder on my Dropbox. And presumably I have...

Re: Template not showing in Document Manager

I don't know that "expected" is the word I would use, but you have hit on the problem I was trying to describe above. It seems that Nisus only allows templates to be picked up by the Document Manager via the "Save (As)…" method, which in turn means that your synchronized macs won't/can't pick them u...

Re: How to create new file using a template

I'm not sure what your question is. Using "New $templatePath" is the way to do this. What else are you looking for?

Re: Template not showing in Document Manager

Yeah, that't the wrong way to go about it. But I totally understand. I tried the same and couldn't get it to work. I think you'll have to remove that one by hand. Instead use the "Save in Document Manager > Templates" command directly to create the template and save it. I must say however that I thi...

Re: Title Case macro

Hello Howard, There are actually a lot of macros floating around by now. I did check the last one I posted, and I do see that there is a problem with that one. So I am posting an update here. Note that this is also a package of 3 macros: the one called "Title Case Capitalization" is the one that doe...

Re: Deleting a cross reference

I'm at a little bit of a loss understanding your problem. A cross-reference is a single character, which will display as some automatically generated text (usually a page number or the like, but maybe a longer bit of marked text). Since it's only a single character I'm not sure why you are so reluct...

Re: character recognition

Dear Yohanan,
I honestly cannot say why you are having such problems. If I open your "Untitled 1.doc" in Nisus, it goes through the Libre Office translator and appears in French/Roman letters. It does not get transliterated into Greek for me.

You can assign Keyboard Shortcuts to your Styles:–

Nisus Writer Pro > Preferences > Menu Keys > Format > Paragraph Style > Sub-heading (say)
You can also assign keyboard shortcuts to styles directly in the style sheet.

Re: Title Case macro

I assume you are looking for something that will capitalize only the "content" words in the selected text, avoiding prepositions etc. Have a look here.

Wait a second! You are the same writerhoward who started that discussion too. Did you forget, or are you fishing for a different solution?

Re: Boolean searches

Hello John, "Boolean" searches is one of those terms… The point is that Find is not a search engine looking through a database, it's a pattern matching algorithm. So an "AND" search in this case would be a search for string1 followed by string2 . In the simplest case you just type them both into the...

Re: Upgrading Files

Hello Daniel, NWP's file format is .rtf which originally was a MS format, I believe. In my (limited) experience, Word opens rtf files just fine, and most Word users click on the rtf files I send them and are none the wiser, though Apple users might see the file open in TextEdit instead. Personally I...

Re: GREP

Hello levelbest, first let me make one important fix to Vance's basic idea. You shouldn't use the AnyTextCharacter wildcard. Spaces count as text characters and you are seeking to eliminate periods not followed by space. So you should probably use AnyWordCharacter instead. Now let's talk about the w...

Well, all of this quickly runs into the usual problem: should I write a quick-and-dirty macro that works for me, or try to create a new feature that works in the general case. I tend to find the latter to be something with diminishing returns. I personally believe one should avoid underline altogeth...
