Distance between footnote separator line and first footnote

Thanks for the replies about how to change distance between footnotes. Is there an easy way to increase the distance between the line that separates the text from the footnotes so that the first footnote isn't so close to the line separator? Thanks!

Footnote Questions

1. Occasionally a footnote will begin at the bottom of one page, but then run over to the bottom of the next. Is there a way I can make sure that this doesn't happen? 2. I like a bit more space between footnotes on a page then the default. I know I can "add/decrease line" when I'm in a set of footno...

Odd Footnote Refs when importing from Word

Sometimes -- not always, but frequently enough -- when I import a Word for Mac document into Nisus, the footnote reference in the text is fine, but there is occasionally a "double" number (e.g., "7" "7") in the footnote itself; i.e., two separate references. One can be deleted without affecting the ...

Some .dot files are different from others

All my template files have the .dot extension. However, some have what looks like a different icon in the finder window than others. In fact, when I do a "sort by kind" search, the .dot templates with a funny icon appear at the top, the others -- which look like ordinary .rtf or .doc files, appear a...

Change line spacing/height in footnotes?

While I'm happy with the single spacing in the body of the text (which adds an additional line of the 'normal' height), I'd like to reduce that a bit in my footnotes. I'm using this very message as an example. The space between the preceding line and this one is fine in the text, but can someone giv...

Re: Can't turn off Paragraph Shading Palette

I figured this one out! In Preferences under General, when "selection changes to 'Main document body', "Take this Action" had "Paragraph shading" selected. I've changed it to "do nothing".

Can't Turn off Paragraph Shading

When I turn off Paragraph Shading on the Palette menu OR in the document, it very soon pops back on. When I set a template with Paragraph Shading "unchecked" it nevertheless appears when I open the template. I imagine this is a glitch with this particular item on the Palette menu, because the others...

Can't turn off Paragraph Shading Palette & other Qns.

Nisus is coming along nicely, but questions/problems pop up, and this site is wonderful in answering them so promptly and accurately: thanks especially to Martin! Despite turning off "Paragraph Shading" in the palettes menu, as soon as I start typing, it pops back on. I never use it, so it is partic...

Re: Edit/View multiple pages on a large monitor

Thanks, Martin! I would suggest that this addition would greatly add to Nisus Pro's attractiveness. After all, most people who aren't using a laptop will be using a monitor these days that is at least 21", so there is a lot of room for several pages. Best, Hans

Edit/View multiple pages on a large monitor

How can I, if I can, view (say) pages 12 and 13 (and perhaps even 14!) on a 27" monitor? thanks

Moving Text Boxes & Inserting Text Boxes within Text Boxes

Is there a way to move an "anchored" text box to a far distant place in a document? Or is there a way to make a non-anchored text box that "floats" wherever he wishes to put it? Example: Text box is made in the middle of p. 3 and then author wishes to put it in the middle of p. 5. I have had trouble...

Turn off shading of footnote references and page numbers

The manual says that the default of page number shading can be turned off in the Preferences...but I can't find where! Also, I'd like to change the shading -- or, better, change the shading color-- of footnote refs so they are easy to spot!
Thanks!

Re: Footnote Number Size

Thanks, Martin.... I have a friend who is converting to Macintosh from PC, where he uses WordPerfect (and is happy with it). Nisus nicely reads WordPerfect -- with one glaring exception: when importing footnotes it adds another superscript. So foot note 7 becomes 77. The 'extra' number can be delete...

Footnote Number Size

How do I change the footnote number to superscript. The default seems to be an ordinary sized number.
Thanks!

British English Dictionary?

Is there one? How do I get it if there is?

Also, where do I find the icon of a finger pointing?

Thanks!
