Absolutely perfect. Thank you Philip.

Re: URL list (plain text) to list of hyperlinks

Hello Philip, I have a document with URLs. Everything is written in Verdana. When I run the macro the URLs will be transformed to Times 13 which isn't what I want. I found out that a Character Style named "Hyperlink" in the source document is responsible for this. The URLs will adopt the attributes ...

Re: How to find italic, but not italic bold

The thing I've always wanted in a word processor is a way of showing what attributes are applied in the text. I imagine this would use bubble-like indicators in the text which could be viewed or not viewed with a button. There would be a bubble for where the attribute started and one for where it f...

Re: How to find italic, but not italic bold

I'm not sure this is helping to solve the problem at issue. The problem is the (in)visibility of certain features (such as unbold ). Think about the case where you want to search for a space that does not have italic applied to it but happens to be between two stretches of italic. In your notation ...

Re: How to find italic, but not italic bold

Excellent! Thank you Martin. Is the step 4 documented somewhere in the Nisus help manual? It would be better if the menus gave clearer feedback on what's happening exactly, or allow some other way to more explicitly choose these options Since Nisus has already an "Or" bubble (see screen shot), AnyTe...

Re: Default zoom setting for newly converted files?

Is there a way to select a zoom setting other than 100% for newly converted files when they open in NWP? If I open a .docx file, it defaults to 100%. Yes, you can do that with a macro. Before you use the macro below, make sure that the Open dialog-box (the dialog box that you are presented with whe...

Re: Styling tables

I'm working on a document that uses a lot of tables with different colour backgrounds and borders to mean specific things... 'error', 'warning' and 'no problem'. While I can get the result I want by setting each one up and then copy/pasting as required, it gets to be a chore in a long document with...

Re: Are your ToC entries all or part of a heading/paragraph?

Hi Cris, Sorry if I misunderstood. -- I use TOC entries in the Navigator pane extensively in documents longer than two pages. If the document was not created by me, for example text documents downloaded from Gutenberg, I use the original structure in the document. I would then use Chapter 1, Chapter...

Re: Are your ToC entries all or part of a heading/paragraph?

Since the Navigator/ToC panel on the left of the window is usually far too narrow to show any more than a couple of words, see attached image, my ToC entries are mostly only a few words from a heading or paragraph. To enlarge the Navigator Pane, drag the vertical line to the right (see the 2 screen...

Re: How to select text without color?

Try Kino's Select by Color macro: http://www.nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=4151 Here is another much better macro by Kino that does exactly what the OP asked for. I'm not sure whether it belongs to the macros that originally come with NWP. I hope it is not redundant. Therefore I post it here...

Re: Split Document View: Feature Request

My wholehearted support for split document view in combination with *parallel scrolling*. Plus parallel scrolling of two or more independent document windows (like in old Nisus Writer 6.5, where you could additionally hold the Shift key while you were scrolling). Parallel scrolling is especially imp...

Re: Urgent! Index in Arabic alphabetical order

Many names in Arabic have an "al-" at the beginning. So the name al-Qāsim will appear at the beginning of the list (because a - Alif - is the first letter in the Arabic alphabet) and not under Q (in Arabic letters, of course) as it should be. So I have to delete "al-" and after finishing the list I...
