Hmm, this isn't as easy as you think, because I want the overstriking to be the place that the reader realizes that the particular piece was done on a typewriter -- and this varies throughout the work, some are, some aren't -- but...this got me thinking. My solution above should work, but yes, it might be best to do something like you suggested. I could for instance put in a single note early in the book to the effect that sections that were typewriter overstruck will be with normal strikethrough but with a single solidus at beginning and end to indicate that a typewriter was used there. Then I can use the solidus combination for those two letters (start, and end), with regular strikethrough in between. Everything will be searchable, and no graphics will be required.Elbrecht wrote:Hi Steven -
The Mac is no typewriter - I was told in times of old. The up to date way to handle your input is using FORMAT/STRIKETHROUGH in Nisus - then the text stays intact and is searchable - and you can import it to any other application. Give the text a note why you replaced with good reason and everyone will love you for your choice of replacing!
The Mac is no scanner - as well…
Thanks, I'll try that.
