Re: Desired NWP1.2 Features

I read all your wishes in one go (I've been so busy lately, I had no time for forums and blogs), and was impressed. My one and ever-present wish is the possibility of an automatic back-up copy in another location, just in case I forget to do one myself. It was the feature in Nisus Classic that saved...

Re: thinking of switching from Mellel

Samuelas I notice that this Mellel-Nisus debate generally comes back to a retroactive justification of a purchase decision, or of a decision to use a word processor that no one else does, despite the fact that no one else does. There may be some for which it is as you say. As for myself, I bought b...

Thanks for NWP 1.1 Perfect… Well, almost perfect. This ungrateful forever unsatisfied user still misses «her» back-up copy in another location (by the way, the Macro Martin suggested does not work, it says there is a mistake in Line 1) - not to mention (to what would no doubt be popular acclaim) the...

Nisus still crashes a fair amount I read this often enough. I have been writing everything with Nisus Writer Express from 2.0 on. Including a 800'000 characters book with footnotes, tables, superscript with no problems about line spacing, etc. I have had a few glitches, but it never ever crashed, I...

I don't know whether I am missing something here, but I do this all the time: I take huge documents from home to the office (in case there is a lull and I can work with them), and if I'm lucky and have had free time to work on them I take them back home. At home, I don't have Word on my computer, on...

Did you save it as a Nisus Macro? As for example: Number Lines.nwm Saved as a Perl Macro it gave that error with me too. Dirk: Brilliant! I'm going to try. Of course, I saved it as Pearl Macro… I'll keep you posted. Nisus Macros are supposed to treat straight quotes the same as curly quotes, but it...

Thanks, Dirk Barends.
Before I use it: what is this “number renumber” section?
In between I have noticed line numbering is part of Nisus: I just never needed to use it until now.

It worked, thanks. I'm grateful. Unfortunately, it creates a new document in which all styles are lost. It does not matter for the original, but it does matter for the translation I'm working on! I suppose I'll give up for this time. I should have thought of this earlier. But I keep the macro for a ...

Thanks for the suggestion, Hamid. Unfortunately, it does not really work, as the source (the original script) is a given, and the paragraph number is fixed, it's quicker to number them by hand… I looked through the macros and realized then the isn't one for line numbering - in fact I cannot find lin...

Numbering paragraphs: possible?

I am sure someone asked this before, but I can't find it and I need it; is there a way of numbering paragraphs? I am doing the translation of film dialogues, and it sure would help me, because it would alert me if I missed a paragraph, which, I notice, is so easy to do.
Thanks to the helpful friends…

by the way i may have seen your name re: some Apple/Mac stuff come to think of it - maybe an apple forum? Not sure. That is possible: I am co-responsible for a Mac-forum called www.cuk.ch (in French) For the icons, I shouldn't worry. I don't use the PB 12" any longer, so I can't test it just now...

I had never paid attention to this, but I did today. It does happen, but does not interfere with the contents in any way, and then when you restart the computer all icons are OK. At least it is so on my computer (MacBook, Intel 10.4.9).
