Re: Initials

G'day, all It's important to be aware that text within a Text Box is not considered as a substring of any "adjacent" string when it comes to Find & Replace. This means that a whole word with one or more initial characters displayed as drop caps by means of a graphic device will not be found in a sea...

Re: Creating a document that can be imported into WordPress

G'day, Simon et al That sounds like too much hard work! Which suggests that an entirely different strategy might be worth considering. I've never used WordPress, and it's not entirely clear to me whether it acts as a blog host or merely as a blog construction kit. If the latter doesn't seem to be wo...

Re: Compare and Remove Duplicates — 2 Lists

G'day, jb et al No doubt someone will supply an elegant Macro to accomplish what you want, but other approaches are possible, among them use of the supplied "Compare Documents" Macro. Assuming the two documents are constructed similarly, here's another (non-Macro) method you could try:– (1) Duplicat...

Re: Large selections—like 20k words—showing no word, par., or char. counts (bug?)

G'day, wF et al Short answer: I'm not 100% sure. Longer answer: If you already have Nisus Writer Pro on your computer, things like Preferences, Styles and such generally remain intact when you install updates or upgrades of the application. So I don't anticipate there would be a problem. I think Nis...

G’day, wF et al

Simply relaunching a problematic application may not be enough. It might be worthwhile reinstalling it.

Cheers,

Re: Large selections—like 20k words—showing no word, par., or char. counts (bug?)

G'day, wF et al

No problem evident here with partial (>73,000 words) or complete selection in a Lorem ipsum document (NWP 3.2.1) containing more than 76,000 words.

G'day, wF et al

No problem evident here with non-contiguous selections totalling more than 25,000 words in a Lorem ipsum document (NWP 3.2.1) containing almost 27,000 words.

Re: Bug? Nisus 3 seemingly randomly "Typesetting Text..." and sluggish, 50% CPU use, in long doc already open for hours

G'day, wF et al I haven't dealt with such long documents for a long time, but I too have observed sluggish typesetting behavior with NWP — for example, even on short A6 documents of less than 1,000 words. I can't recall whether it only began with NWP 3 or whether it happened with previous versions. ...

Re: using characterCase attribute

G'day, Philip et al

Thanks for another useful addition to the Macro collection, Philip.

One tiny little tweak, though, if you could: at present, it only seems to work on the first of a set of non-contiguous selections.

Cheers,

Re: How to use the command 'Scan Document' in a longer macro

G'day, Þorvarður, Philip et al

It's sometimes helpful in an AppleScript script to interpose a "delay" command (with an appropriate duration) to ensure that execution of code pertaining to one application is completed before code pertaining to another application is dealt with.

Re: Joining Files

G'day, Martin et al That'd be great. Thanks, Martin. Perhaps another (additional?) way of going about things would be to have commands from the Section-related Palettes (such as "Different First Page") available in a Section set in the Format menu (analogous to the Paragraph set there).

Imagine printing a 100-page document, only to discover after the event that the page number is displayed as zero on 91...
