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 ...

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 ...

Re: Save to / Save as to a particular file format

Thank you for the response. The situation is as follows: 1. I download legal case reports from a supplier of legal information. They have a .doc extension. 2. They reports are really .rtf files, but the software they use creates slightly odd rtf files (odd in the sense there is something in the rtf ...

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...
