Re: Textexpander and NW3

Typinator always works perfectly for me in NWP and every other program. However, I don’t use the field feature of Typinator. In your case, it seems you are not actually using the field to retrieve a predefined or stored value, but you merely want to move the insertion point to a position within your...

Re: multiplication

P.S. Bob, all the files I open are mine. Most of them were created in Word and have either .doc or .docx specification. I open them first in LibreOffice where the data is best preserved than opening directly with NW Pro, then I close and reopen them with NWP. Everything I said about documents creat...

Re: multiplication

I lose styles from one doc to the next (some of them are opened from a converted to RTF format from DOCX through LibreOffice.app When you open in NWP a document that you did not create yourself — regardless of whether it was created in NWP, Word, LibreOffice, etc — it will include all the styles em...

Re: Nisus Pro opens with Text edit logo

This happens to me about once a year. First solution to try is to restart the Mac in "safe" mode, which deletes various MacOS caches. Follow these instructions: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201262 After it finishes booting in safe mode, you need not follow any troubleshooting steps from the App...

Re: Insert paragraph numbers at the beginning of paragraphs

Thanks, Philip, for your excellent method of padding the number to 4 digits! I use paragraph numbering rather than line numbering, but I have the same requirement to pad with zeros. For years I've been using the awkward solution of 3 different paragraph styles for paragraph numbers in the range of 1...

Re: InfoClick to index achieves

Instead of removing your old mail from Apple Mail, you might consider moving it to one or more "On My Mac" mailboxes in Apple Mail. That will prevent it from slowing down your IMAP account, but it will continue to be indexed by Apple Mail and InfoClick. I do not think there is any downside: I have n...

Re: Deleting emails

You can double-click an email in the hit list, which opens it in Apple Mail, then delete it there using the command-delete shortcut.

Re: Macro request: the last day of the year 2017

Martin uploaded just such a macro a few years ago, but I can’t seem to find it anymore.

Re: Line numbers and tables.

@Vanceone:

Do you need line numbers for the blank lines, too, as in California?

If so, see the User Guide topic Number lines for legal documents (“Pleading Pages” or “Pleading Paper”), beginning on page 288.

Compare Documents macro: suggestion to preload Find dialog

I have a suggestion for improving the excellent Compare Documents macro that's preinstalled with NWP (originally written by Kino). Append the following two steps to the macro: Find ' (AnyText) (Or) (AnyText) ', 'euW!' Menu 'Find:Show Find…' This opens a Find dialog pre-loaded with criteria to find a...

Re: Error during imprt / rebuilding database

In OS X 10.12 (Sierra), the mail folder is ~/Library/Mail/V4/. V2 is from a much older version of OS X. Also, you should select the V4 folder itself, not the MailData folder inside the V4 folder. The mailboxes with your messages are in the top level of V4, not the MailData folder. MailData contains ...
