You can do this with Find/Replace using PowerFind Pro

1) Enable PowerFind Pro
2) In the Search box, type: ([0-9])ñ([0-9])
3) In the Replace box, type: \1-\2

This should work OK.

Cheers,
Henry

I suppose 1.0.2 and 1.0.3 version of the help file are one and the same thing, as NWP 1.0.3 was just a maintenance update, without any functional change. If you want the help file to be summoned by Help menu, put it into the application package. Control-click NWP icon in the finder and choose Show P...

Nope. Substituted fonts do not have a reproducible formatting. It looks like the hilite is something NWP uses to make substituted font obvious. It is a fake hilite, in other words. And, yep, I can select multiple substituted fonts via the character attribute tag, but then I cannot tell wherever in a...

Thanks.
I never thought of doing like that. I suppose substituted fonts have some attribute of their own, then. If so, I think a search macro could be written.

E. G. when you import some Greek text and format it with a font that doesn't have Greek characters. Usually NWP substitutes a near guess for the text and highlights it red, so you can see the font was changed.

Click on the third tab, at the left end of the toolbar to enter Style Sheet view. Styles are summoned by clicking on the Character Style tab (for character styles) or the Paragra...

I think it is high time Apple thinks more about computers and less about pods and phones. Or split company.
Not going to shift to Leopard very soon, that's for sure. Can do without for now, and keep on riding the tiger.

Click by the end of your second page, where you want the document to be split, and select Insert>Section Break>Next Page. If you are in Page View, all of the text that comes after is moved to the next page and so on. If you are in Draft View, a colored line appears with the writing "Section Break (N...

Hi, Lellius

Change 'aE' into 'saE'

s standing for 'search in selection only'

Also, see Nisus Help and Nisus Macro Reference that is shipped with the last two versions of NWP.

I posted two related macros to do this at: http://www.nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=7826&highlight=#7826 Although I wrote them for NWX, they appear to work in NWP. I tried your macro. As it is, the code skips all-caps words, such as TOGETHER or FRONT, and any two-character word, like TO and IF. I...

Oh my!

I didn't preview before posting, so html turned the text into a mess.
Below is the original:

Open Find/Replace.
Enable PowerFind Pro.
Uncheck Ignore Case.
In the Search box, type: \<[A-Z][A-Z]+
Click on Find All
Select Edit > Convert > To Capitalized.

Here is a workaround. Open Find/Replace. Enable PowerFind Pro. Uncheck Ignore Case. In the Search box, type: \<A> Convert > To Capitalized. But, mind, this changes uppercase words too (that is "CHAPTER FIRST" becomes "Chapter First"). If so, try to narrow the search by specifying the formatting. Hop...

That's it, Martin. It is the way Apple's drag-and-drop works, and has been doing so for years.
