Re: Outline lists - missing the obvious

G'day, Amontillado et al

Oh dear! It looks like you're in for one of those days, Amontillado. Enjoy your walk.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Outline lists - missing the obvious

G'day, Philip et al Thanks for your comprehensive procedure for dealing with outlines in NWP, Philip. Nevertheless, the fact remains that NWP includes "Outline" among the List Style options, which encourages the expectation that Outline will behave pretty much as other List Styles do. And indeed thi...

Re: Outline lists - missing the obvious

G'day, Philip, Amontillado et al I've looked at this a bit more. I think the problem lies with a conflict in the Style hierarchy. If the initial (or probably any) text on a page already has a Paragraph Style assigned to it that specifies that the next paragraph is to have a different Style, applicat...

Re: Outline lists - missing the obvious

G'day, Amontillado et al I think there might be a bug here, possibly introduced in NWP 3.2. I can confirm the behavior you observe, with Number Lists as well. The List Style is not continued to the next paragraph, at least not unless you start the List four or five lines down the page. If you select...

Re: Insert footnote in Table?

G'day, Frank et al No — and yes. It could be regarded as a — ahem! — anticipated feature. Pending that glorious day, Philip has written a Macro called "Table Footnote". I found a copy in the Editing set of the Macros folder, but I'm not sure how it got there. I can't find it on the Nisus sites, so m...

Re: Problem with dark mode

G’day, Martin et al

Thanks for explaining the situation, Martin. I’m glad it’s not a Nisus bug!

Re: Problem with dark mode

Re: Problem with dark mode G'day, dumiya et al I don't use System-wide Dark Mode, and I take it from your comments that you don't either. If I use Nisus Writer's Dark Mode, text is displayed in the color I choose, with the exception that text is displayed as white when I choose either white or black...

Re: macro to open new file for editing

G'day, Martin et al Thanks for that, too, Martin. Just so it's clear to others… The first of Martin's two Macros opens Nisus New File as a Template. When you Save this file, your amendments become part of Nisus New File and will be available in any new (Untitled) document you create using the New co...

Re: macro to open new file for editing

G'day, Martin et al

I had actually tried to use that User Property statement, but with the final line syntax:–

Open $path

I'm not quite sure why it didn't work, but at least now I see a way to use that property. So thanks for that.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: macro to open new file for editing

G'day, ronald et al The problem here is that, as far as I can tell, the only way to open the Nisus New File template for editing is via Preferences > New File > Advanced > Open For Editing…. Any attempt to open it otherwise treats it as a stationery pad and just opens a new Untitled file, albeit one...

Re: how do you move items up and down lists with keyboard shortcuts ?

Re: File Kind “Nisus Writer Glossary"

G'day, Þorvarður et al Yes, I would have been using NWP 3.0.4 at the time. I haven't had a problem with NWP 3.1. I don't use DEVONthink, but Þorvarður's concluding remarks embody a salutary caution in a broader context. I would never delete the original file of an important document in the expectati...

Re: don't understand how to type header shortcuts

G'day, ronald et al For a start, what you are referring to are Paragraph Styles for headings, not a Header. For me, both ⌘H and ⌘H1 work as expected, each doing their own thing. Despite a concerted effort, I cannot find the ⌘H command anywhere in Keyboard Shortcuts, so I am not sure how one would al...

Re: how do you move items up and down lists with keyboard shortcuts ?
