Re: Finding superscript ordinal numbers

Here's a macro of Philip's find all PowerFind pattern. If you run the macro it will select all of the desired numeric ordinals so you can reformat them en-masse. The macro also opens a find results list, so you can skim the results or adjust the matches beforehand.

Re: MS Word putting blank lines between table rows

Thank you for sending your file paieye! I've taken a look and the quick evaluation seems to be that this is a bug in Nisus Writer. The table in the RTF file is being loaded incorrectly. We'll have to investigate further to know more. I'm sorry for the trouble.

Re: MS Word putting blank lines between table rows

Probably the best way to identify the problem is for us to see the problematic document. Could you please send me a copy of the file you received from your correspondent? It's important that you send the file as saved by Microsoft Word, before it's reopened and resaved by Nisus Writer. It's best if ...

Re: Is "Find Next" possible by attribute (text colour)

Could the macro be amended so that the default red can always be found? That is a bug. Please download the Find Color Groups macro again. It should be fixed now so it also matches the default red color. It will also match grays now, which the prior macro also skipped. Happy New Year to you too Þorv...

Re: Is "Find Next" possible by attribute (text colour)

That's potentially useful, but I'm having a problem with it in the Results List, which I ran into a few weeks ago also in some other search. It's that the Results List chops the text up as if there are hundreds of different instances, even where the colour is contiguous (continuous). ... Can this b...

Re: Problem with Bookends

Sherman communicated with us privately about his troubles and we learned two things: 1. Resetting Nisus Writer's sandbox helped alleviate some (but not all) of the problems in using Bookends to scan Nisus documents. This fixed issues where some scans would do basically nothing, with Nisus Writer and...

Re: Is "Find Next" possible by attribute (text colour)

Thanks to everyone for all the advice that's been shared. It's probably superfluous now, but our FAQ on searching for text formatting goes over a lot of the methods discussed here. So it would be possible to walk through 'Find Next' for all the 'colored' (any color that's not black) at once, using y...

Re: uneven line spacing

There are many reasons why line spacing can be uneven. Usually the culprit is non-uniform text formatting like fonts, but special characters may also cause uneven spacing. That can occur if a special character (eg: thin space) is taller than the surrounding regular text, or if font substitution has ...

Re: Default text editor

You can definitely set Nisus Writer Express as the default app to reopen its document files. Please see this FAQ on how to change the Finder "open with" settings. Let us know if you have any questions.

Re: Simple Question: how to add a file to another

There's a couple of ways for you to accomplish this: 1. If you need to join several documents together, you're probably best served by the menu Macro > Document > Join Files . It can stitch together multiple files from disk all at once. 2. You can drag a file icon into the text area of any open Nisu...

Re: Problem with Bookends

Since both Bookends and Nisus Writer remain responsive to you, I might guess that this is perhaps a problem with inter-app communications as facilitated by macOS. Though it doesn't make too much sense for that to be affected by one particular citation or another. Please let us know if you learn anyt...

Re: Indents

Thanks for the sample document Adrian. It shows the situation clearly and I now understand your complaint. You don't like that a paragraph's left/head indent is used as a tabbing location. In other words: a tab character in the text advances horizontal text placement to the left/head indent location...

Re: Thesaurus pane doesn't show

Thanks for the updates, and I'm sorry nothing worked for you. After testing this myself it appears to be a problem that's specific to macOS 10.14 Mojave, and perhaps other older system versions. The problem does not occur on 10.15 Catalina or later. I think the best practical advice is to simply rev...
