As for the forum's list tag, it does work, but the syntax is a little awkward. For a bulleted list you should use:

So the "1" (or some other number) was the trick. Thanks, I got it to work now.

Nisus and MobileMe

As a MobileMe user I recently began using the sync "Preferences" setting. Little did I know that this would not only synch my Mac's system preferences, but also the preferences for applications. The result is that if I make changes to the "Nisus New File" on one machine the same changes will later s...

Re: I think I found a bug

Here's is where I think the problem lies. When I open the macro and check the color of the find string, for "normal" colors the format menu will show the correct color checked. So if the find expression has the text color "Red" then "Red" will be checked. But with "Gray" even if apply and save "Gray...

Re: I think I found a bug

I can confirm Lou's problem, and whatever the value of Martin's remedy, it isn't applicable here. Here are the steps for reproducing the problem. Let's first try a case that works: 1. Open the find box 2. Enter '.+' as the find expression 3. Apply a text color (let's use "Red") 4. Test the find --->...

Re: Fixed line spacing is hiding in-line equations.

I don't use MathEq myself, but the equation is basically a graphic, isn't it? And the graphic is inline, isn't it? so you are trying to put a graphic that is too large on a line of fixed height. Obviously it isn't going to fit so what do you want Nisus to do? Overwrite the line above? Something is g...

In the non-styled-text mode, it runs 100 times faster (!) on my test file of 22000 lines.
So that does it.
That's a nice trick. It works like a charn. Thanks!

Re: Sort lines and kill duplicates

You can make it far faster if you don't take care of style attributes at all. Actually I was wondering about this too. But what part of the macro takes care of the style attributes? The slow part of the macro is the loop which assembles the $output string. Timing individual bits of the macro, the "...

Re: Sort lines and kill duplicates

Err... if we were competing in a car race... Actually my point is that if we were competing we (apparently) shouldn't bother with all this hash business. The "bullet count" version I posted earlier is much faster. Your version timed to 292 seconds on my machine on the 6000 line file. The "bullet co...

Re: Sort lines and kill duplicates

Now I see it. Of course the keys of the hash are an array. So they can be sorted.
You're version does have some improvements over the version that I was experimenting with. But testing it on a file with a bit less than 6000 lines, this approach is markedly slower than the Find and Replace version.

Re: Sort lines and kill duplicates

Kino's approach is the one that I would have used too, but there is one important difference between js's macro and Kino's. js's macro counts the number of lines as well. Here is one way to extend Kino's approach to counting lines. Select All :Edit:Sort Paragraphs:Ascending (A-Z) Find and Replace ‘^...

Re: Table Selection

Thanks Martin, Kino, for the comments. I deduced that this was the behavior, but now I have peace of mind as well! As far as the description goes, since it is a technical reference I think precision trumps verbosity, but if you're worried about verbosity you could drop the either making it: If range...

Table Selection

The macro reference says the following: TableSelection.new tableObject, [rowRangeObject], [columnRangeObject] v1.1 Returns a new selection describing a cell region within the given table. Both Range objects must be in-bounds for the table or an error will be displayed. If either range is not provide...

Yes, this seems to be broken under Leopard. The switching seems to work only for each "script". So Roman forms one group (English, German, French, …) Unicode one group (Hebrew, Greek, etc.), and there are other groups.

Nisus Classic did not have automatic capitalization. However Nisus Classic spell checker did give you the option to flag words which were not capitalized.

average column macro

The macro to average columns states that "empty cells are not counted so they do not affect the average, but cells with a zero in them are counted and they do affect the average". My tests show me that if the cell contains contains "0." or "0 " the behavior is as specified (i.e., the 0 is included) ...
