Re: I can not open document

First of all, it sounds like a damaged file. Try opening Nisus so it is in the dock, running. Going back to the finder, locate the document. Hold down the command and option keys on the keyboard, and while holding them down, drag the document to the Nisus Writer icon in the dock. The Nisus icon shou...

Re: Accessing Applescript Script Libraries?

Thanks phspaelti. I kind of thought that was the case. Transferring information back and forth between Applescript and Nisus seems harder than it should be. Also, the "Send Selector" command is very limited, correct? We cannot send any arguments with our selector or use multiple argument selectors? ...

Re: Accessing Applescript Script Libraries?

Also, how can you pass information to your applescript? Like, say, an array or dictionary?

Accessing Applescript Script Libraries?

Is there a way to access Applescript Script Libraries from Nisus? I have a Script Library that installed in ~/Library/Script Libraries/ and an applescript file that uses it. One neat thing about Nisus is that it runs Applescript sctp files directly. But while my script runs fine outside of Nisus, in...

Re: Dynamic word processor documents

I'll add in something more: Nisus does not have, as far as I know, the capability to run a macro on document open or program open. So any malicious document with a Macro in it would not run automatically, which would be in my opinion the biggest threat.

Re: Autosave minutes -- from my last save, or absolute?

Can it be changed? Almost certainly not. Which is unfortunate. I frequently have to add a multiple page PDF file as an appendix, for instance. The only way I've found to do that is to open the PDF in preview and laboriously copy one page at a time and paste it. Every time I switch to Preview to copy...

Re: Yosemite forever

El Capitan is pretty stable, as Apple has sort of adopted a "tick tock" strategy of "big release" then "Bug fix release." Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion, (Mavericks sort of is the odd one out), then El Capitan. Yosemite has bugs, and I think El Capitan is regarded for the most part as more stable. Sier...

Possible Font bug

So I may have dug up a bug. When you have a document open to the Character palette, where you can change the font of selected: if you install a new font and then try to change text via the dropdown menu, Nisus goes, well, broke, I guess is the appropriate word. Redrawing stops working, and ultimatel...

Re: Run a specific macro whenever a specific file is opened?

Application installed services are actually coded inside the application itself and registered with the system. It's dead certain that in this case, the Nisus services are actually written in Objective-C as part of the main application. It's all keyed to the clipboard when an application provides th...

Re: Margins

Good list, phspaelti. I would note that I think I've figured out how to create a textbox, and once you have a textbox you can duplicate it and add it to text. The solution that I'm thinking of is to issue the menu command to do a new textbox, then drop into Applescript and issue a couple of mouse co...

Margins

So I was looking into a macro to write annotations on the left side of a page, in the margin area. Which meant I needed to know the page dimensions, the "writeable" box, etc. Turns out there is no way to get that info or manipulate the margins? In truth, there appears to be no way to manipulate marg...

Re: Nisus hangs on export

Interesting. I was able to replicate the hang with your document. So looking deeper, it appears that the very last thing in the document is a tracked change of a deletion of a table of contents thing. a chapter 16 about a fingerbone or something. This of course explains why the document is hanging; ...

Re: Printing comments as annotations in NWP 2.1.3 not workin

I just checked, and PDFPenPro can indeed turn the boxes transparent, also it can append an "Annotation summary" at the end of the document. However, instead of along the left side, it places the note content at the bottom, as a footnote. PDFPenPro is pricy though. If you have lots of PDF work to do,...

Re: Change embedded TIFFs to JPEGs in rtf document

You do not need to use Photoshop; the built-in "Automator" program can batch convert an entire set of files. What I would do is save your Nisus document as file type "RTFD". This will generate a file that actually has all of your images inside a folder inside the file. You can then batch process all...

Re: Printing comments as annotations in NWP 2.1.3 not workin

At least in my copy of Preview, the annotations printed on the side point to the corresponding square icon in the text. Move the icon where you want the comment to be and Preview draws a line connecting the comment to its icon. Yes, when you select "open in preview" in the Nisus Print dialog it does...
