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.

Re: Styles in new file created by macro

I see what you are saying. But it happens in saved macros too, if the text used to create the new document comes from a string as opposed to text. So the following macro shows the problem if even it is saved and run from the menu: $doc = Document.active $sel = $doc.selectedSubstrings Document.newWit...

portability of (perl) macros

I am trying to write a macro to transform a file. Since I would like this macro to have some degree of portability (i.e. be usable independent of Nisus Writer) I have chosen to write the macro in perl. This works fine for me since perl macros run in Nisus as well. However the following issues have c...

Re: Styles in new file created by macro

But what is your $newDoc? Well you can try it like this: Document.newWithText “Hello World” So Nisus will create a new document containing the the text "Hello World". The style sheet for that document (for me) looks like this with the drawer open. As you can see on the left there are 3 styles, and ...

Styles in new file created by macro

In a macro I am creating a new file using the following code Document.newWithText $newDoc When the macro finishes it gives me an untitled file. The drawer shows a complete set of styles, which are clearly the styles from my "Nisus New File". But when I switch to the style sheet, there are only 3 sty...

Re: No soft hyphen???

Well the one advantage that a macro has over HE's keyboard solution is that it can make sure that hyphenation is "on". Unfortunately it seems that the macro posted in the depository does not do that. (It just has a single line "Type…"). Here is a macro that does: if Menu State "Allow Hyphenation" el...

Re: No soft hyphen???

I figured it out.
In order to make the soft hyphen visible one needs to choose "Allow Hyphenation" from the "View" menu. If "Allow Hyphenation" is unchecked the soft-hyphen allows breaking of words, but itself stays invisible. :?

Re: No soft hyphen???

I have pretty much the same problem as Geoff. I get a break but no visible hyphen, when I insert U+00AD.
However the file that Elbrecht posted works fine. And if I add more soft-hyphens to that file they work like his. So I can't quite figure what is going on.
