Simple Question: how to add a file to another

Post by Frank Einstein »

I have a book-length manuscript divided into several separate files. How do I add Part II to the end of Part I? I have done this before, but I can't remember how I did it.

Thanks in advance.

There's a couple of ways for you to accomplish this:

1. If you need to join several documents together, you're probably best served by the menu Macro > Document > Join Files. It can stitch together multiple files from disk all at once.

2. You can drag a file icon into the text area of any open Nisus Writer document window. That will insert the contents of the dragged file wherever you drop it (ie: at the insertion point). You can drag these file icons from the Finder or other sources, eg: document proxy icons in window titlebars.

3. And of course there's good old copy-paste, though that's going to be the slowest method.

Thanks! I think I used method #2 in the past, but I didn't remember it today.
