Re: Changing starting page number

G’day, writerhoward et al In the Section Palette, go to the Page Numbering bit and change the number in the “Restart At” field, then hit Return. This seems to work even though “Restart At” and the checkbox are greyed out. That field would probably be better named “Start At” because it’s clear from t...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G’day, Þorvarður et al If I’ve understood you correctly, Þorvarður, essentially what you’re doing is getting the paragraphs immediately preceding and following the block (consisting of one or more paragraphs which could represent a quotation or a list or whatever) to do the work of space-setting abo...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, chronodm et al Full marks for creativity! However, as I think has been discussed in another thread, Tables become problematic when they straddle page breaks (virtual or otherwise). In the case of a single-row Table — which is what is required for simplicity in the present context — the entire...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

G'day, Vanceone et al I usually do the manual override thing too, but I thought I'd have a play with a quick-and-dirty macro approach. The following seems to work, for lists anyway. But note that it takes advantage of what I consider to be a bug; viz, that the Select Next in Style command, when used...

Re: different first page header height

G’day, Vanceone et al My investigation into this reveals a bug! First, just to clarify a few things…. In the Margins Palette, the Header Height is the vertical height of the rectangle allocated to the Header. The Top Margin is the vertical distance from the top of the page (sheet of paper) to the bo...

Re: Find/Replace Dialog

G'day, Martin et al

Thanks for that, Martin.

No, I tried the inline button, but it would only place the image at the beginning or the end of the posting.

But at least it’s there now for people to comment on.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Find/Replace Dialog

G’day, Martin et al Sorry about the image’s failing to display. It did when I originally posted it. I have had a lot of difficulty trying to re-post it now. Hard to get it to appear only once, and in the correct position. I tried drag-and-drop, inline button, img tag, URL with and without attachment...

Re: Find/Replace Dialog

G'day, Martin et al Thanks for considering this, Martin. I had thought of having the Find/Replace window move out of the way of the found term, but things might get too distracting when (for example) rapidly repeating “Find Next” in some situations. Autoscrolling might work, but problems will arise ...

Find/Replace Dialog

G’day, all I often find that the Find/Replace window obscures the view of a found result in the original document, necessitating movement and/or resizing of the Find/Replace window or of the actual document window. It’s a nuisance. It occurs to me that a relatively simple solution (at least, I hope ...

Re: Automatic numbers lost in sort Table

G’day, all For those (like myself) who may baulk at using the full Macro Language for such things, an easy and straightforward way to preserve selections during complicated Find/Replace operations is to use one or more Clipboards. Select your chunk of text (eg, tab-delimited columns) in the original...

I can confirm your observed behavior. It appears to be a bug.

Re: Automatic numbers lost in sort Table

G’day, Þorvarður et al I see that you are using the “S” option in the expectation that (as the Macro Language Reference implies) you will have something selected that the Sort command can work with. That doesn’t work for me, so I don’t know whether that’s a Nisus bug or just something I don’t unders...

Re: Automatic numbers lost in sort Table

G’day, wF et al And when you’ve finished all your sorting, you can, if you wish, reinstate the “Scene” appellation. On occasions, it can be useful to employ a little sorting trick that Nisus Writer makes very easy. The idea is to permute the order of substrings in a string, perform the sorting opera...
