Re: Content in table row to continue next page?

It looks like you want content in a single table cell to flow between pages, so that the cell's text appears on multiple pages. That's only possible if the table cell spans multiple table rows. A single table row in Nisus Writer is limited to a single page. To configure a spanning table cell, which ...

Re: Corrupt RTF-files

The problem with that gibberish text is almost certainly due to its font, and has nothing to do with RTF. I expect at least one of your fonts is an old pre-Unicode font from the "classic" Mac days of OS 9. That font probably uses non-standard text encodings. Your font might display an Arabic ن chara...

Re: Numbered table-rows

The easiest solution (and the one with the most amount of control) is to add a table column with list numbers. Each row in this column would have a single list item number, where the numbering increases as you move down the table. The only trick is to make sure the applied list style has the option ...

Re: Space before footnote references

Using find and replace for this task isn't too easy because normally Nisus Writer skips note references during find. But it isn't hard to accomplish with a macro. Here's macro code that should do what you like, to delete any space characters in front of footnote/endnote references in your main body ...

Re: How to Find All Non-ASCII Characters

I just want to REMOVE all non-ascii characters. So should I use the [^\x00-\xFF“”‘’] expression in the Regex PowerFind? That's probably a good place to start. So you want to: 1. Open the Find panel. 2. Set the "Using" popup button to "PowerFind Pro (regex)" 3. Paste the expression [^\x00-\xFF“”‘’] ...

Re: Find return characters in footnotes and replace with pilcrow

Ah great, then this is a relatively straightforward task. You want to change your Find dialog "where" setting to "Footnotes & Endnotes". Once that's done just insert what you want to find (returns) and replace (pilcrows), and then click "Replace All". It should look like this:

Re: Find return characters in footnotes and replace with pilcrow

As an example, you want to turn document text that looks like this: This is the main body[1]. Another sentence with another footnote afterwards[2]. End of main text. --------------------- 1. First paragraph in the first footnote. Second paragraph in the first footnote. 2. First paragraph in the seco...

Re: Find return characters in footnotes and replace with pilcrow

Just to make sure I understand this correctly before giving any advice: you want to process each footnote in your document to remove internal returns, so each single footnote is a single paragraph. You do not want to change the document's main text, footnote references/numbering, or the total number...

Re: Quick find of any tables in a file?

Hamid's suggestion to use the Select Next Table menu command is best. Also, once you have selected any table, you can open a listing of all tables in a document using the Formatting Examiner palette: 1. Select just the entry for the table in the palette's listing. 2. Right click that entry to show t...

Re: How to Find All Non-ASCII Characters

Thanks for posting the file. There's nothing exotic about it after all. You have normal "f" and "i" characters, and not any pre-composed ligatures. If you ever need to check yourself, you can always select a character and use the menu Edit > Transform Text > Convert Character Codes > To Unicode Code...

Re: How to Find All Non-ASCII Characters

Thanks for the video– the fist is indeed fierce! 👊🏻🦁 However, what I mentioned above about pre-composed ligature characters may still be true. I don't recognize your active keyboard layout. It's conceivable that it's generating pre-composed ligature characters as you type. That seems like undesirabl...

Re: How to Find All Non-ASCII Characters

I suspect that, in the font you are using, those character pairs are ligatures and not distinct ASCII characters. That's basically right, although the font is not a relevant factor. If an "fi" is matched in your text by the regex [^x00-xFF] it means that your text does not contain the characters "f"...

Re: How to Find All Non-ASCII Characters

Hi Ray! Nisus Writer can definitely help you with this task. You can use PowerFind Pro (aka: regular expressions / regex) to find all the characters you don't want and replace them with nothing, effectively deleting them. The trick will be in identifying the characters you do want to keep. The basic...
