Re: Print specific pages

G'day, johseb et al

It's a problem with AppleScript, at least under Mojave. The AppleScript Dictionary for BBEdit has similar commands to NWP, but attempting to print closes all open documents and the editing window, with no dialog box in sight.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Print specific pages

G'day, johseb et al Thanks for your input on this, johseb. I am assuming you would have altered the target printer parameter in the code to reflect your own printer. Not that it matters much, if the dialog box is opening but other parameters are not entered correctly. It would just need to be change...

Re: Print specific pages

G’day, johseb et al I thought I’d look into this a bit more: we need a script of some sort. We can’t use a macro that relies only on commands available in the NWP hierarchical menu structure because you can’t set the page numbers in the Print dialog box other than manually. As far as I could determi...

Re: Print specific pages

G'day, johseb et al I currently use a Brother MFC-J5730DW Printer. I looked at the Print dialog box for documents in several applications: in none of them was there a Page Range option such as that depicted in your screenshot — just "All" and From… to". So it would appear that that Page Range option...

Re: Printing Issue with NWP 3.0.3 and WF-3540 Epson Inkjet Printer

G'day, Bill et al As you know, print settings for a document are made in the drop-down window (dialog box) that appears when you choose File > Print…. Halfway down that window is a drop-down menu that by default shows the active application. Other options available in that menu depend on the Printer...

Re: Printing Issue with NWP 3.0.3 and WF-3540 Epson Inkjet Printer

G'day, Bill et al Not sure I can offer much here except perhaps some troubleshooting maneuvers. Things I would suggest:– (1) Ensure you have the latest version of the operating system you are using. (2) Ensure you have the latest version of your printer driver. (3) Restart both computer and printer,...

Re: Non breaking Paragraph Marker

G'day, Vanceone et al Rather than use a Heading Style of the Paragraph Style variety, I think I'd be inclined to use a macro that simultaneously altered the appearance of the initial content of each List Item and marked it for inclusion in the Table of Contents. For example, the following code could...

Re: Urgent help needed

G'day, Yohanan et al

It sounds like an inadvertently inserted text box.

Single-click on the number to select the box and the line tethering it to the anchor, then hit the Delete key.

Does that work for you?

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Martin et al Sorry, Martin, it was meant as a joke, playing on your "One Macro to Rule Them All" appellation and the fact that you were second-guessing the user's intention on the basis of how many paragraphs they selected in a List. A compliment, really, on the macro’s wide-ranging utility. ...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Martin et al Seems to work well. A worthwhile addition to the macro collection, Martin. Thanks for that. While you’re in the business of second-guessing the user’s intentions, though, I don’t suppose you could tweak the macro just that teensy-weensy little bit more so it automatically and con...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Martin et al That’s good, Martin, except that it only works for Lists, by which I mean lists that employ a List Style. I myself frequently use lists that are not subject to a List Style. And it won’t work for quotation blocks and the like. However, I think that removing the first “^” from the...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Martin et al Thanks heaps for that, Martin. As far as I can tell, this pretty much solves chronodm's original problem. The only caveat is that the selection must commence with a Paragraph Start. (But it can finish anywhere within a paragraph, with or without a paragraph return.) I had a look ...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Martin et al It should be possible to achieve differential spacing before, within and after a block of text without the need to create more Styles. Part of my difficulty in trying to automate that spacing was that I could find no quick way of navigating to the first and last paragraphs in a l...
