Re: Normal to Body Text

Thanks to you both. It works, but there are some areas I'm still researching in the Macro reference to figure out how. The Final result looked much like Philip's code: # Select First Paragraph of Each Selection Block $doc = Document.active $sels = $doc.text.find $doc.styleWithName('Normal'), 'a' $fi...

Thanks Martin. You are correct, it’s only in page view.

Normal to Body Text

I have a few documents where the main body text is in Normal style. I need to convert them to a Body Text Indent style, which is easy enough to make a macro for. Where I'm stuck is that the first paragraph of each section of body text should not be indented. (It should be in a style called Body Text...

Typewriter Scrolling

Maybe I just didn't notice before, but when using typewriter scrolling, the line seems to shift up when I get about 75% of the way across the page. I thought it always shifted when I hit the end of the line. Is anybody else seeing the same thing, and is that the behavior intended? (Or did I screw up...

Re: Applying a template to an existing document

I use the Styles Library for this. Insert > New Style > Import From Style Library . . . Rather than using templates, I save all my styles there to different sets with different looks. Then can just overwrite the styles in my current document with the look I select. Much better than jostling all thos...

The word was "than" or "then" if I remember correctly.
Yep -- saw that one, too.

Someone in Apple it seems decided it would be a good idea to integrate a degree of grammar checking into the spell-check system in 10.14 … which has screwed it up.

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

It’s pretty much like you mentioned. Certain words in certain places seem to set it off — were at the end of a sentence (though not in the first paragraph), the word to in different forms. It seems to be more frequent on words that have homonyms or that are part of easily mistaken forms (were, we’re...

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

Not seeing this in other apps like mail or textedit, and the switching dictionaries trick doesn't seem to affect it.

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

Was this one ever figured out? I get *certain* correctly spelled words flagged as incorrect at the end of sentences. One example: > They never knew where they were. Were is flagged as incorrect. This also happens with some versions of the word to/too at the last word position. Sometimes quitting and...

Re: Theming or using Dark Mode

A theme capability would be great. It would probably allow more flexibility than only complying with light/dark mode. In the meantime, I have a sort of work around for this that I use that may help. I theme the "Full Screen" to be a very dark gray with very light gray text. I leave the page view whi...

You should also just be able to drag the image file into your document.

Have you tried Insert > Image..., then select the image from your disk?
