Re: New MacBookPro, error messages

G’day, jrochest et al Not sure about the other stuff, but a bit of “education” of your new computer may fix the document opening problem. Select a .rtf file (or whatever format you usually save NWP files in) in the Finder, then File > Get Info (Cmd-I). In the window that opens, set the “Open with” a...

Style Superimposition

G'day, all Feature request: Allow Styles to be superimposed on one another. This would avoid the need to create multiple versions of a Style via the "Based on" facility to suit as many underlying Styles as are required in a document. Perhaps it could be achieved by adding "Existing Paragraph Style" ...

Re: Paragraphs Starts Odd Page?

G’day, fde101 et al This is a bit trickier than it may at first appear because subsequent addition or removal of text prior to the designated paragraph may need to effect the insertion or deletion of a blank page immediately before the paragraph. This means that any Style would need to have a dynami...

Re: Macro and Powerfind

G'day, dougelrsystems et al

Nisus Writer will create the macro for you. See "Create a macro from Find and Replace expressions" on Page 449 of the Nisus Writer User Guide (under the Help menu). Once you have your macro document, you can edit it as you see fit.

Hope this helps.

Re: Separate file into sections and then recombine

G'day, Philip et al I was referring to Nisus's technical Sections, hence my capitalization of the word. Besides the example I gave, multi-column Sections are also ones that would not necessarily have a heading attached (as indicated in a previous post by Philip). The fact that the class of Section b...

Re: Separate file into sections and then recombine

G'day, Philip et al Your "Split Document by Section Breaks" macro works well, thank you. The observation that one may wish to exclude certain Sections from such a document split is an astute one. Your "Split Document by Section Headings" macro is interesting. I was pleased to learn how one might pre...

Re: Separate file into sections and then recombine

G'day, Þorvarður et al Yes, I had a look at that Split Documents macro again, in relation to Frank's query. However, it treats page breaks and section breaks in the same way, so it will probably not give the desired result if a section spans several page breaks. I could not see how to make the requi...

Re: Sentence capitalization

G’day, Martin et al I submit that the current name of that command is somewhat misleading, especially in the absence of any documented description of the intended behavior. Global application could be disastrous if all other text were demoted to lowercase save for the initial letter of each sentence...

Re: Sentence capitalization

G’day, frazman10 et al

I don’t have Express to check this, but I get the same result in Nisus Writer Pro. The command appears not to be documented in the User Guide for either application. I think its current implementation represents a bug.

Re: Combine 1 Column & 2 Columns in Same Document?

G’day, Matt et al

Yes. See P. 175 of the Nisus Writer User Guide where it details information about Columns, including the fact that “Columns are set on a per-section basis”. Information about Sections is on P. 258.

Re: converting Pages documents?

G’day, Philip, Myron et al I have both NWP and Pages on my MBP, but my experience is the same as yours, Myron. Pages will not export what it considers to be a “layout” document to RTF. If you Convert to Word Processing (via Page’s File menu) and then export to RTF, you end up wth a blank document. I...

Re: How to create a solid line?

G’day, ameddo et al I confess to doing that too sometimes, but it is as well to be aware that with that technique solidity is a function of the font. Compare, for example, Lucida Grande and Palatino. Other peculiarities of this technique are that it admits of shadows and that the baseline can be cha...

Then the Copy commands in the Edit menu should no longer be grayed out. If this isn’t the solution, I’m not sure what ...

Re: one to two columns

G’day, Ulrich et al

I would put the whole thing in two Sections. “HEADLINE” would be centrally aligned in one single-column Section. The list would appear in a separate two-column Section.

Hope this helps.
