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...

Re: How to create new file using a template

Philip, Thank you for the reply. After some more testing I think I got it: Path: /Users/victor/Dropbox/Nisus/Nisus Writer Settings/Templates/ Template: notary - basic template.dot means: $template = ‘/Users/victor/Dropbox/Nisus/Nisus Writer Settings/Templates/notary - basic template.dot’ new $templa...

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).

Permissions error in running macro

I am using Nisus Writer Pro 3.0 on macOS 10.14.1. On running the macro I am getting the following error message (which previously ran without problem): There was an error on line 2 in the macro "test import" Could not access the file "/Users/victor/Dropbox/Nisus/Nisus Writer Settings/Style Library/L...

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 ...

Re: Macro command to Import from Style Library…

Philip, Thank you for providing working code. I was able to implement it successfully (although I can understand how individual element work, but how you constructed the macro is beyond me). My final macro: $editDoc = Document.active $styleLibDoc = Document.open "/Users/victor/Dropbox/Nisus/Nisus Wr...

Macro command to Import from Style Library…

I am new to Nisus Writer Pro Macros (upgraded to version 3.0). I need open rtf files provided to me and wish to then carry out some formatting to which I wish to apply some styles which I have saved in style library. Is there a macro command to import a specific style collection from the style libra...

Re: Hiding/remove headers and footers

Thank you for the replies and suggestions.

It is unfortunate that there are these 'holes' in the macro language as they prevent creating a macro to automate some formatting changes.

Re: Hiding/remove headers and footers

Thank you for the reply. I should have added to my original post, is that I wish to print the document (either to a printer, or to a PDF) and do not wish to have the headers/footers showing at all. Something which draft view will not help with. Is it simply not possible to achieve with macro command...

Hiding/remove headers and footers

Nisus Writer Pro 2.1.8 / macOS 10.13.4 In the simple formatting macro I am creating I would like to include a command that hides any/all headers/footers. (I can see how to manually hide them.) My search through the macro reference guide does not appear to provide a command for this. I understand it ...
