Re: Preferences for selecting text, strike-through, &c

The text selection color in Nisus Writer can indeed be customized: 1. Open your Nisus Writer preferences. 2. Switch to the Appearance pane. 3. Look at the bottom of the pane for the label "Colors". 4. Choose the "Selection" category, inside which you'll see a host of colors you can customize. The co...

Re: Cannot increase number of VISIBLE table-rows beyond 24

Tables in Nisus Writer can have any number of rows. If you have a lot of rows in a table they will automatically flow between pages. What you described with some rows not showing is unusual. It's hard to know from just the screenshot you posted, but I suspect that you accidentally placed the table i...

Re: how move items up / down a list?

Thank you for the updated macros Philip! Coincidentally a customer just wrote us privately about this and your new macros should help.

One final improvement: allow the macros to move non-list paragraphs. I'm attaching versions of your macros that add this feature, which the customer also requested.

Re: 2nd-level TOC entries as a single paragraph

Considering this problem: I was first wondering if one could mix TOC styles, e.g., have one style for Level 1 and another for Level 2, so that only Level 1 would get leaders and page numbers. This does not seem to be possible either. This is partially possible, using a single TOC style. If you use ...

Re: 2nd-level TOC entries as a single paragraph

Firstly, the feature I'm looking for doesn't currently exist in NWP (I was wondering if there was simply some bit of the manual or some forum message I'd missed). That's correct. Nisus Writer has no built-in way to format a generated TOC so that entries are not on a separate line. You'd need to use...

Re: Content in table row to continue next page?

It looks like you want content in a single table cell to flow between pages, so that the cell's text appears on multiple pages. That's only possible if the table cell spans multiple table rows. A single table row in Nisus Writer is limited to a single page. To configure a spanning table cell, which ...

Re: Corrupt RTF-files

The problem with that gibberish text is almost certainly due to its font, and has nothing to do with RTF. I expect at least one of your fonts is an old pre-Unicode font from the "classic" Mac days of OS 9. That font probably uses non-standard text encodings. Your font might display an Arabic ن chara...

Re: Numbered table-rows

The easiest solution (and the one with the most amount of control) is to add a table column with list numbers. Each row in this column would have a single list item number, where the numbering increases as you move down the table. The only trick is to make sure the applied list style has the option ...

Re: Space before footnote references

Using find and replace for this task isn't too easy because normally Nisus Writer skips note references during find. But it isn't hard to accomplish with a macro. Here's macro code that should do what you like, to delete any space characters in front of footnote/endnote references in your main body ...

Re: How to Find All Non-ASCII Characters

I just want to REMOVE all non-ascii characters. So should I use the [^\x00-\xFF“”‘’] expression in the Regex PowerFind? That's probably a good place to start. So you want to: 1. Open the Find panel. 2. Set the "Using" popup button to "PowerFind Pro (regex)" 3. Paste the expression [^\x00-\xFF“”‘’] ...

Re: Find return characters in footnotes and replace with pilcrow

Ah great, then this is a relatively straightforward task. You want to change your Find dialog "where" setting to "Footnotes & Endnotes". Once that's done just insert what you want to find (returns) and replace (pilcrows), and then click "Replace All". It should look like this:

Re: Find return characters in footnotes and replace with pilcrow

As an example, you want to turn document text that looks like this: This is the main body[1]. Another sentence with another footnote afterwards[2]. End of main text. --------------------- 1. First paragraph in the first footnote. Second paragraph in the first footnote. 2. First paragraph in the seco...

Re: Find return characters in footnotes and replace with pilcrow

Just to make sure I understand this correctly before giving any advice: you want to process each footnote in your document to remove internal returns, so each single footnote is a single paragraph. You do not want to change the document's main text, footnote references/numbering, or the total number...

Re: Quick find of any tables in a file?

Hamid's suggestion to use the Select Next Table menu command is best. Also, once you have selected any table, you can open a listing of all tables in a document using the Formatting Examiner palette: 1. Select just the entry for the table in the palette's listing. 2. Right click that entry to show t...
