Adjust color in palette

I frequently find that I cannot really tell which Style is selected in the Styles Palette as the highlighting is too light. I looked in the preferences and did a quick scan of potentially relevant threads but did not see a way to change the color scheme. Is this possible? If not I'd like to request ...

Re: Search for highlighted text

Agreed. The contextual menu was the second option I tried to introduce highlighting to the find expression. When that failed, I performed the copy and paste that sent me down the wrong path. It would be a great addition to have highlighting available in the contextual menu.

Re: Search for highlighted text

Thanks, Hamid and Martin. I finally figured out what went wrong. I had originally copied and pasted a selection into the find window. I then selected the text and replaced the text with the Anything wild card bubble. (At first I was unsure how to highlight the text in the find box, so I had used thi...

Re: Search for highlighted text

Thanks. This got me started, but I found that my search does not capture all the text that is highlighted. I've tried all of the various wild card options for "underneath" the highlighting, but none of them captures all of the various highlighted elements. I think between them all I should be able t...

Search for highlighted text

Is is possible to search for text that has been highlighted? If so, what expression is used?

Thanks!

Re: Odd spelling errors not marked

I believe Martin is referring to the class that is used in the code to indicate that the spelling service is available. The class is referred to as a 'spelling server'. Applications look for services that are made available and then call for them when needed. So, this isn't a web server or connectio...

Re: Turning Off Unwanted Capitalisation

The issue is that whatever you type there, you've asked NW to capitalize that text. The solution, then, is to ask NW to not apply the case change attribute to those selected items, or to apply a different case change attribute such as lower case. So, select the individual words that you wish to chan...

Re: how to turn off field shading for footnotes?

In Preferences select Appearance at the top. Then in the Customizable Colors box select Automatic Text. Then in the Automatic Text box select Note References. Finally, select the Hide this highlighting checkbox.

This should turn off the automatic highlighting of the note references,

Re: Hebrew font problem

I've had good success using New Peninim MT with the unicode pastes from Accordance. For some reason, many of the standard fonts, Ezra SIL, etc. do not work properly. The problem with Apple's text engine is even more pronounced if you attempt to do anything with cantillation marks.

The menu option to Paste Text Only is found in the Edit menu and the Clipboard Tag on the status bar, but the option to Paste Text Only is NOT found if you use the contextual menu option by right clicking on the page. There only the basic Cut, Copy, and Paste options are found. It would be great if ...
