Re: Bold word leads to bold underline?

The only time it's a problem is when I have a multi-line heading. I don't really care about th the thickness, just that it's consistent. When you have a 3 line heading and the middle line has a thicker underlining than the other two lines it looks off. But know that I know this is what happens, I ca...

Re: Bold word leads to bold underline?

Well now, that's interesting. Using Helvetica it does not happen, but in Times New Roman it does. I usually use Timees New Roman, so that's why I noticed it, I'm sure. I checked and it happens on my Big Sur version of Nisus as well. Again, Helvetica and other fonts are not affected. Not sure why Tim...

Bold word leads to bold underline?

So I don't know if this is a bug or not. Running Mojave and Nisus Writer 3.2.2. If I underline a phrase, sentence, etc. Multiple words underlined. Then I bold one or more words, but not all of those words, it bolds the underline for that line, including the underline under the non-bolded words. . If...

Re: Using function keys on OS11.6

Have you tried https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204436 which discusses how to turn the Function Keys off and on? There's a setting in System Preferences to handle this for apple keyboards. They suggest that if you are using a non apple keyboard then there should be a utility to do it. Hope this hel...

Re: Old files are mojibake

For other types of these issues, it is possible using Sheepsaver or Basilisk to run an old "virtual" System 9, 8, or 7 machine, which can install classic Nisus. I frequently do this to access the very old WordPerfect Mac 3.5e, which allows me to open, sometimes, PC wordperfect files colleagues send ...

Re: Black on black formatting error

Something I've noticed is that I have a black app setting for Safari. It provides dark mode for Safari in Mojave, where it actually rerenderes the page as if dark mode applied to the webpage instead of just the menus. If I copy text from a webpage and then paste into Nisus, it carries the "white tex...

Re: Black on black formatting error

I too would suspect something with dark mode, somehow. I see that your appearance settings are set to mirror the system preferences. One the one hand, your menu bar is light which suggests "light" mode. On the other hand, if something is corrupted a bit with the system dark mode, maybe that is impac...

Re: Powerfind Browser doesn't work.

I have an early 15 MacBook Pro running Sierra and the latest Nisus; Powerfind works there. Sierra is 10.12, so I think whatever Apple did happened around then.

Re: hyperlink reference to bibliography

That kind of file size could happen with embedded images or PDFs. I know that I have a 133 page document, which, unfortunately, has about 80 of those pages as inserted PEFS (a sort of appendix). File size is about 24 MB (a pain to email!) and it takes about 10 seconds for an autosave. Maybe 15. It's...

Re: Continued footnotes

I wondered if the divider line was it. Related question: I frequently see court opinions where footnote 5, say, starts on the page. It's long. Has the [continued...] symbol at the bottom to show it's on the next page. The page again has the footnote reference number 5, with [...continued] as the fir...

Continued footnotes

So I'm perhaps missing something. I work in a field with lengthy footnotes that very frequently span more than one page. Is there a way to have some sort of [continued...] symbol or other way of marking a footnote that easily lets the reader know that the note spills over onto the next page? I could...

Re: Indesign problem

Could you just export the table of contents and index as separate files, import them separately, and place the 180 odd pages left? So import 3 files?

Re: Indesign problem

Try saving it as an "RTFD" file and importing it. If you don't need to edit the text in InDesign, you could export a PDF from Nisus and place that. Or, try selecting everything in your Nisus Document, including the table of contents and index, and then copying it to the clipboard, then pasting it in...

Any way to listen in the Macro language?

So I was wondering if there is a way to essentially register an observer or listener to listen for events and then run code. In particular, I'm thinking of asynchronous functions that run a long time... is there a way to essentially call a long running piece of code, and then get notified when its d...

Re: Create array from word list?

I'd love a version of Map, Reduce, and a few other functional programming concepts! And Lambdas. Recursion? Maybe not... a for loop should do most of that.
