Re: “Split Document” macro to respect New File settings

G’day, Philip et al Thank you very much for that. I now see how to save the new document appropriately. It seems I hadn’t appreciated the “.setActive” command sufficiently. The "light show" doesn’t bother me unduly. After all, the content of my documents is just so interesting, and I can speed-read....

Re: “Split Document” macro to respect New File settings

G'day, Philip et al Thanks for looking at this for me. The macro on the Web site you cited is dated 2009-06-27. The version I have is dated 2009-07-02. The differences are fairly trivial, but I attach the version I have. I was using code very similar to the fragment you gave — slightly different syn...

“Split Document” macro to respect New File settings

G’day, all I want to modify Kino’s “Split Document” macro so that the destination files respect my Nisus New File settings. For example, as it stands at the moment, the macro produces documents whose Page Setup settings (such as paper size) differ from those in my Nisus New File. I have tried insert...

Re: Make a row of a table an exact height

G’day, billmounce et al Apart from using the “.setUserHeightAtRow” Table object command in the macro language, there is no facility to enter a table row height directly. You can, however, select a table, position the cursor over a row’s lower border and drag it up or down. As you do so, the correspo...

Re: Delete empty page (no text field)

G’day, billmounce et al

View > Show Invisibles

This should reveal a Page Break or a Section Break that you can delete.

Cheers,

Re: Export to epub problem

G’day, Kadah et al I am sure someone would help you if they could. A quick search for “EPUB” on the Forum shows that many questions on the subject have never received answers, so I suspect few people here use this feature. I myself have had no experience with EPUB files or iBooks, but I did a quick ...

Re: Nidus Writer Pro file in Application Support

G’day, msebban et al There are 3 Libraries, two of which have Application Support folders. Only one of these has a Nisus Writer Pro folder, and the only thing in mine is a LibreImporter folder. I suspect the Nisus plist files you seek are lurking in the Preferences folder of your user Library, where...

Re: Underline

G’day, Iain et al I’m not quite sure what you want here, Iain. To my eye, the line inserted by the Paragraph Borders palette is as close as one would like to the text above, if the purpose is to set off a (sub-) heading. The only thing closer would be an actual underline character. Paragraph Borders...

Re: Is there a way to strip "Track Changes" from the documen

G’day, Vanceone et al The topic title refers to “Track Changes”, but I don’t think Nisus tracks changes (apart from the number of Undo locations you set in Preferences) if you have the “Track Changes” feature turned off. If you turn the feature on and Show Changes Pane, and see that changes appear t...

Re: Special Characters: Mixed Fonts

G’day, Þorvarður et al

After a 10-hour download, I’ve updated to Yosemite 10.10.5 on my mid-2014 MacBook Pro Retina. The Character Viewer works as it should, Font Variation linkage in Favorites having survived the ordeal.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Special Characters: Mixed Fonts

G’day, Þorvarður et al Yes, I am referring to the Font Variation. The characters in my Character Viewer Favorites retain their distinguishing features. When they are inserted into a NWP document, the correct fonts are recognized in the NWP Character Palette. I have now done my tests on a MacBook Pro...

Re: Special Characters: Mixed Fonts

G’day, Þorvarður et al On my computer, the font association in Character Viewer Favorites survives each of the following operations: closing of the Character Viewer window, shutting down and relaunching Nisus Writer, and restarting the computer. I tested this with right arrows and with N-ary circled...

Re: Special Characters: Mixed Fonts

G’day, salv0 et al To my mind, the problem here is why font variations are not preserved over time in the Favorites set in the OS X Character Viewer. Is this a problem that only salv0 is experiencing? I can add three right arrows (say) to the Favorites set, each in a different font, and then have th...

Re: Maximum space between paragraphs

G’day, Alex et al Contextual formatting like this can indeed lead to headaches, especially in a long document with many headings. In such a case, I would not bother defining yet another style. Rather, when I had finished with the document, I would run a macro that adjusted the paragraph spacing arou...
