Re: Way Off Topic: Android is Not Open

Looks like open has become a catchword.

Re: Italian hyphenation

I did just that, last year. NWP has improved, but there still are a few glitches here and there. The s-thing is obnoxious. I published a book some four months ago. 200 pages. Hyphenation was OK except for the s-thing. There were horrors like s-tare and s-poradico, which could be swept aside by squas...

Re: Italian hyphenation

I downloaded Tex hyphenation file and made a comparison with the one that comes with Nisus. The two are slightly different. There are definitions in the latter that are not in the former, extra coding aside. In my opinion, Nisus’s seems better. That said, substituting a cleaned-up version of Tex hyp...

Re: Italian hyphenation

The hyphenation dictionaries are editable, if you're industrious enough to learn the TeX hyphenation patterns. The system actually isn't too complicated, and there are web pages that explain it. To explain briefly, the patterns look like this: 2s2t1c 2s2t1d 2s2t1f An odd number (1,3,5) indicates a ...

Re: Italian hyphenation

Are you sure you have your hyphenation options set properly? I just tried and it seems to be hyphenating properly. For example, the word "primavera" was hyphenated as "prima-vera" instead of "pri-mavera". The thing has improved but there are still a few glitches in the hyphenation engine. Words lik...

Re: What is this rubbish that Zapf Dingbats won’t work in NW

HI, Geoff. Old type 1 fonts can be tricky on recent software. I experienced this a few years ago with a book. The kerning got dramatically changed in all occurrences of diacritics, like é, ñ and ô. For example, José appeared as if it was Jos é. I spotted the "glitch" only when the book was on print....

Yes, yes, the sloths, but what about my Micho? In this here picture you can see him showing me what it’s like to sit on the dentist’s chair.

You can reset the font cache, and do much more, running Onyx. It’s free.

Re: HELP! MORE Weird Behavior with Fonts — This One Disastro

SS6 shows that there are two Din typefaces displayed in the character palette: Din Pro and DinPro Maybe you have two versions of the same font in two different places: root library and home library. You can check with FontBook. In Collection pane, click on Computer and then on User . Do you see the...

Re: Adding section break via macro

Great help, Martin, thanks. About the menu path, that was something I tried to do but I lacked the skills. I will change the macro.

Re: Adding section break via macro

Hello, Mark.

I wrote this macro years ago. It still works nicely. Last time I used it was yesterday. You can substitute any kind of section break for any placeholder text. Just run it.

Greetings, Henry.
