Re: multi-file search

In this case, a much better approach is therefore to use the Document Manager . Add a Folder Group and choose 'Document Content' or 'Advanced Search'. This is how you can fast search hundreds, perhaps thousands of Nisus files without opening them! And the search is lightning fast. This is a nice ti...

Re: multi-file search

I'm glad you found out how to natively search all open documents in Nisus Writer. For anyone else wondering how to do it: in the Find panel set the "Where" popup to "All Open Files". I understand the desire to search multiple files in a folder without opening them. Unfortunately ...

Re: Mailsuite Integration?

Do you know what formats Mailsuite uses to store emails and tags? Hopefully both are a standard technology like mbox and OpenMeta.

Re: what is the real extension of old Nisus Writer 6.5 ?

Old "classic" Nisus Writer 6.5 files from the days circa Mac OS 9 have no official file extension. There actually was no such concept on the Mac at the time. The Mac used file creator/type codes like NISX that were hidden from the user. The concept of file extensions (which intertwine the ...

Re: Help with Macro sentence spacing

Which brings up the question how one might write such a macro that avoided doing that. My first reaction to this problem was that one could use Find to find footnote markers. But this doesn't seem to be possible. If you convert a footnote marker to a its Unicode points, it just gives you the Unicod...

Re: Help with Macro sentence spacing

Hi Julie! The good news is that this shouldn't be too hard. I'm attaching a macro that takes a stab at doing what you want. It should eliminate all space characters in front of footnote references in the main body text, no matter how many spaces occur. The macro uses the term "footnotes" b...

Re: Preferences - Doc Manager Visible columns

I'm sorry you're having trouble with the Document Manager. The column settings you described are stored in a file called "Document Manager Window Settings". Nisus Writer keeps the file in the standard macOS Application Support folder. Under sandboxing it has a rather ugly path: ~/Library/C...

Re: Typinator expands slowly?

Have you contacted Typinator about this? They are the ones who are most likely to be able to provide an explanation for this, and hopefully suggest a solution. We could try to investigate this from the Nisus Writer side of things. You might capture an Activity Monitor sample during a slow expansion....

Re: Word Wrap and Plain-Text Paste

Non-breaking spaces can be a nuisance. I can't imagine the intentions behind all the non-breaking spaces in the sample text that was posted. It's out of control! But non-breaking spaces are also quite useful if deployed intelligently. Especially as they are actual character codes instead of formatti...

Re: Automatic Figure Titles

Philip's advice is spot on. You definitely want to use a list style to automatically number your figures, and then insert cross-references to those list items to ensure the referential number is always accurate. This also creates nice clickable links in exported PDFs. The one other tip I'll add is t...

Re: Align tables

Adrian is correct: tables are not shapes and cannot be arbitrarily moved and positioned. Tables behave like paragraphs; they are placed inline in the normal text flow. Aside from Adrian's suggestion of using a 2-column document section, here are a few other ideas: 1. If your table structures are com...

Re: NWP Bookends link does not work

I'm sorry that you're having trouble. I'm not aware of any current Bookends incompatibility. Once your document is sent to Bookends for processing/scanning, it's in the hands of Bookends to complete the process and return the formatted document to Nisus Writer. So please follow up with Sonny Softwar...
