Topic: breaking a big document into chunks
Replies: 12

Hi, Kevin. Like you, many times I happen to work in chunks. That's because frequently I get a file for each single chapter, or so. Then I assemble them by dragging the file icons in due order (chapter one, chapter two, and so on). No trouble so far. Notes are rearranged OK, that is they flow uninter...

You can do this through PowerFind Pro.

In the Find field, type \t [backslash t]
In the Replace field, type , [comma space]

Batch-change breaks

A proposal: Batch-set breaks and headers/footers. You select a two or more sections (e. g. through the TOC navigator), and set where you want them to start, whether next, left, odd or same page, via the Section palette. Same for headers and footers. You select a bunch of sections and set header and ...

I just gave it a try. Single and double quotes curl perfectly while I type and with several fonts.

Thanks for your answer, Martin.
I admit I didn't go deep into the grep's folds. Grep is great. Sometimes it comes easy, others it takes some doing.
Cheers, Henry.

Thanks Martin Anyway there are time you cannot tell exactly which part of text you want to change. Yes, most times I perform a Find All and then narrow the search within selected text. But it doesn't always work, as you seem to state. If, for example, my search yields three words, namely \1, \2 and ...

But what if the text you are to capitalize occurs in the middle of a search? You will hilite the whole found text and then… what?
I think there's a lack.

Regexp for ALL CAPS or Word Capitalization

When using TextWrangler for my oldest (early 70's) ASCII files I can capitalize the first or all the characters of a word by putting \u or \U right before \n, where it stands for the text found.
I can't actually get the same behavior in NWP.
Any suggestions?
Cheers, Henry.

Why don't you have a look at Media Convert (http://media-convert.com/). It's free.

Blank return is OK, that is what I have been doing so far. But it is a workaround nonetheless. I hope people at Nisus will follow my suggestion and add that tiny checkbox.

The DTP approach to get changes in the level at which pages start, e.g. on the first page of a new chapter, is to start a new section for a new chapter and have a different top margin for that page. You can do that in NWPro. I quite agree with you as for the ruler issue. Now if you show me how do I...
