copy and pasting styles doesn't always work

I know I was able to copy and paste styles from one document to another, following the NWP Beta forum workaround on the "import styles" thread. But it hasn't worked today (with NWP v1.0) - here's what's been happening: I open a document, go to Style Sheet View, click and drag to select all the style...

Help menu launches Adobe Reader...

...a slow-loading, bloated & ugly PDF reader, imho.

I managed to change this to Preview by looking inside the NWP package > Resources & changing help.pdf to open with Preview.

I've set up a pair of macros to emulate the Quickmark behavior in WordPerfect (previously discussed here: http://www.nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2387) 1) Set Quickmark -- consisting of the following two lines: Find “.”, “Er” Bookmark As “Quickmark" 2) Goto Quickmark -- consisting of the followin...

User Guide page numbering

The NWP User Guide begins with a bunch of unnumbered pages (the T of C) then 6 pages with Roman numerals. While this is appropriate for a paper document, it's kind of a pain with a PDF. If I open the user guide and search for a phrase, the first hit is usually in the Table of Contents, but the page ...

Macro to flash when finding bookmarks?

When you double-click a bookmark in the Navigator pane, the line where the bookmark is located flashes with a yellow highlight, which I find really helpful.

Is there a way to get this behavior when using a macro to locate a bookmark?

another curly quotes issue / x-posted from NWP Beta forum

With curly quotes enabled, when I type a double quote followed by a single quote, the single quote comes out as a closing quote rather than an opening quote. e.g. “’hello’ he said” when the desired result should be “‘hello’ he said” Adding a space between the double and single quote leads the single...

Another alternative might be what WP calls a "quickmark" - I had posted on this in the beta forum shortly before it was archived...

How can I change spacing after paragraph with a macro?

To clean up some imported documents, I’m trying to write a macro that will set the spacing after a paragraph to 0 pt (they’re getting imported with it set to 12 pt). But as far as I can tell, this setting can only be changed from the Paragraph palette in the Tooldrawer, not from a menu. Does this me...
