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...

Save to / Save as to a particular file format

I would like to use in a Nisus macro command to save to a particular file format. Looking at the Macro Reference document the Save To and Save To commands to not appear to have a parameter which allows the setting of a file format. Is this possible, or is there an equivalent way of doing this? Using...

Search for (and optionally, replace styles).

I would know whether it is possible to search for styles (and optionally replace them with others)?

I cannot see any way of doing so with Nisus Writer Pro (2.1.8).

Some other word processors can do this (WordPerfect, Word, LibreOffice).

I am new to Nisus (and the macro language). Is it is possible to control the size of a document window? I would like to open a particular file, turn off toolbars and set the zoom to a particular percentage. All of which I see the right commands in Nisus. But also I would to position the document win...
