Re: Double click selecting super- or sub- script as part of word

Try using a character style for the subscripts. If you do it that way you should notice a change. And as a bonus you can easily redefine the look of the subscripts (e.g. you can reduce the baseline without making the typesize so much smaller.)

Re: Numbered Outline/Report Template

Hi Geoff, there is actually one more typical feature of a true outliner that is missing here. That is demotion/promotion of headings etc. In a true outliner you could choose to move a heading of level 2 (and its attached subtext) to heading level 1, with a simple "promote" command. In fact the "Incr...

Re: Numbered Outline/Report Template

1.2.1. Body Print Text When it is time to print, I use a Character Style, Body Print Text, to change from Verdana to something a normal person can read on the page — in my case, I use Adobe Caslon. You might prefer something different. The quick way to apply it is to place your cursor in the text i...

1.3. Moving heads and text around The text follows on from the heads when you are typing, but is not attached to the heads as it is in MORE. Geoff, have you ever tried dragging things around in the Navigator pane? If you did it that way you would find that the text is indeed attached to the heads.

Re: Aplying bold, italic, normal without using menu

Also, some of the translatable phrases take an unexpected form, eg: instead of finding "Red" one must use "_Red". This last peculiarity should be removed, I'll file it as an issue for fixing, but it's something to be aware of. Indeed, I just had a look a this file. Is there some kind of logic behin...

Re: Aplying bold, italic, normal without using menu

I think macros should refer to menu commands as they are in English, no matter what localization you are using. Nisus might then provide a table with English commands and their localized names. Do you means "…should be able to refer to …?" The ability to refer to menu commands in the local language...

Re: Aplying bold, italic, normal without using menu

Hi again. Here is an example of what I meant by trying to write the macro to Nisus' strengths. Instead of searching for each letter one at a time and then doing something, this macro looks at the letters one by one and then applies what is needed. This macro works by first defining a hash, which ass...

Re: Aplying bold, italic, normal without using menu

At some point it might be good to know what you are trying to do with your macro. I generally try to write my macros so they work with the kinds of things that Nisus can do easily. Previously Henry suggested using Find and Replace to apply the formatting directly. Note that when you do it that way y...

Re: how to separate tasks?

Hi Pat, you can prevent the problem if you make the code conditional on the actual finding of the text. You can modify your code like this: If Find all 'a', 'Eam' $color = Color.newWithHexTriplet 'FFCC00' Set Text Color $color end Note that I put an "if" on the line with the find, and and "end" afte...

Re: Find/Replace Strings don't work!

Matze, why are you placing parentheses around the "(one)" etc. ? You don't need those. Just make it ^(one|two|three)(\n\n)(four) But since you don't want to touch the (one|two|three) and (four) you could also use "look ahead" and "look behind" (in the select menu). Then you can rewrite the whole thi...

Re: Macro for font convert.

No, you'll need to write the find expression exactly as Martin said with '.+' etc., and then you need to apply the actual font to the relevant bits of the expression. May I however suggest a different approach to this problem? Try going to the macro repository and download Kino's "Select by font" ma...

Re: Problem converting footnotes to endnotes

On second thought I realize something. You might have a file that has no endnote style. In that case you need to add the endnote style. (The easiest way to do that that I can see, is to copy it out of some other document.)

Re: Problem converting footnotes to endnotes

But you do also see the other form "Endnote", don't you?
Just select that, and then the footnote becomes an endnote.

Re: Feature request: split screen/window

Just note one thing though. The macro creates a copy of the document. As you edit the original the two windows will diverge. So this is quite different from a split screen.
