Re: Applying a template to an existing document

Philip,

Thank you for confirming that it is not possible to directly apply an existing file.

Importing a document into a new file does have the same effect (and saving over the original file), but does not a few extra steps.

I am sure a Nisus Writer Pro macro would solve the problem...

Applying a template to an existing document

Is it still the case there is no direct way of apply a template to an existing document, as it appears from the posting: https://nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=5631#p25668 . What I wish to do: 1. open a Nisus Writer Pro file; 2. apply an existing template to that open file (not only paragraph ...

Re: How to search for a 1 cell table

Thank you for the replies.

I will try the macros you have provided.

The intention is to remove the text and the table.

Doing a search just for the text and replacing it with nothing, leaves the table.

How to search for a 1 cell table

I have to download a number of rtf files - each of them appear to contain a number of 1 cell tables with a boarder, and containing the same text ("Document Information"). Is it possible to search for this. I have tried copying the table into the Search box but doing so only copies the text and not t...

Re: Losing styles after rtf being edited by another program

Thank you for posting this information about how to stop DevonThink Pro affecting the formatting of a RTF file.

To open a RTF file in Nisus with the use of the keyboard it is also possible to use Shift + Command + O.

How to calculate a date

I would like to know whether it is possible to have a macro where I am able to add (or go back)1 day to today's date.

I understand to get today's date:

Code: Select all

$today = date.now
so $today = date. now + 1 day

Is there a(n easy) way to do this in Nisus Writer Pro?

Re: Template not showing in Document Manager

Thank you for the reply. Using: Instead use the "Save in Document Manager > Templates" command directly to create the template and save it. solves the issue. But leads to another: 1. I synchronise settings between 3 Macs (Preferences / General / Sycnchronised setings location). 2. On the 2 other Mac...

Template not showing in Document Manager

I have created my first template. I created an ordinary file and set up the formats I needed (margins and added some text). I saved it then as a template and in the folder where the other templates are stored by Nisus Writer Pro. This folder is /Users/victor/Dropbox/Nisus/Nisus Writer Settings/Templ...

How to create new file using a template

I would like to know how to create a new file using a stored template as part of a macro.

Templates are stored in /Users/victor/Dropbox/Nisus/Nisus Writer Settings/Templates.

I know it is possible to create a new file with a macro command (eg File:New).

Re: Selecting paragraph and formatting

Philip, Adrian, Thank you for the detailed responses. I did not realise it was possible to select paragraphs with a Nisus Writer Pro macro. I have only follow-up question regarding AppleScript and the Do Menu Macro with macro command. This only permits the running of a successive Nisus Writer Pro co...

Selecting paragraph and formatting

I realise that using the Nisus Writer Pro macro language is the preferred approach, but since I am first trying to learn AppleScript I would like to know if/how the following is possible: 1. In AppleScript select successive paragraphs (eg the first paragraph, the second paragraph); then 2. with Do M...

Changing the numbering scheme for footnotes

For some files I receive from another, the numbering scheme for footnotes is a, b, c, etc rather than 1, 2, 3. A brief look at the Nisus manual indicates that it is necessary to change this in the Footnote style, which is easy to do manually. But is it possible to change a the Footnote style with a ...
