have you tried opening one in textedit and making a change and seeing if that works?
Do this on a backup for if you save from TextEdit it will wipe out all of the document's style sheets.

Re: Applying style to paragraphs below found text until next style

What it seems you are doing is inserting the PB before the CR. Nisus is not 'inserting' a CR, it's just moving it to the next line. Got it. So you're suggesting the PB be on its own line. Unfortunately I can't always do that (that extra CR can sometimes force it to the next page). It'd be nice to h...

Re: Applying style to paragraphs below found text until next style

When you write: It missed every "Heading 1" after the page breaks. In fact, those paragraphs were not in the array created by $doc.text.find('^.+\n','Ea'). It wasn't until I put a CR in front of those header 1 paragraphs (after the page breaks) that text.find actually included them in the array. Di...

Re: "Save As" bug?

Philip is right, this is not a bug, but a "feature" of the OS, and many apps (especially Apple's) behave this way. While I suppose this "versioning" feature is useful for many, I prefer to do my version control manually. You can prevent the autosave feature from writing to the file by checking "Ask ...

Re: Applying style to paragraphs below found text until next style

Think I am seeing a bug here... not in your Macro but in NWP. I realized I had some text after the result codes with a 'Heading 1' style as well. Each one was after an inserted page break. No problem I figure... so in your 'as you go' method I just changed: if $attr.paragraphStyleName == "Heading 2"...

Re: Applying style to paragraphs below found text until next style

If you don't need the style for anything else and don't want to 'waste' a variable for it... Can I safely assume variables are released when the macro is finished? And regarding the object model in play here, it would be nice to write that data to files on disk (to aid my learning curve here). As w...

Re: Applying style to paragraphs below found text until next style

Philip... First I want to thank you for your time and expertise! So let's try the procedural approach. Good... as it is the most readable (to me), even though the second method may be more efficient. $doc = Document.active $paras = $doc.text.find('^.+\n','Ea') It appears this is one very granular la...

Applying style to paragraphs below found text until next style

Hi everybody... So I now need to grok the Macro thing in order to do some long document formatting, and I must admit I am finding it a little obtuse (at least compared to the Classic Mac days of Nisus). I want to find each occurence of the string "Result Codes" in the document; then change the style...

Re: How to move Style library, glossaries, macro file direct

Not sure what you mean by EVERYTHING. I have set Doc Manager to use a directory in my user folder and the only items there are style library, glossaries, macros, and templates.

Re: THEASUARUS CRASHING IN HIGH SIERRA

Is Nisus Thesaurus just a standalone version of the thesaurus built in to NWP. Is there any additional functionality other than the ability to use with other apps?

Thanks,

Re: Where did my styles go

You would have had to save styles from a document to your style library in order to have anything to import into another document.

Re: Intermittent Tab Key

One factor: do you have "full keyboard access" enabled in your system preferences? Actually, I have tried both options with no joy. In any case, I think it would be best if InfoClick simply focussed the first search field automatically after launch. Agreed. Oh, but I do have one tip: after launch p...
