Re: Footnotes within Body Text

Hello Þorvarður. Thanks for the comprehensive reply. If I understand you correctly, you seem to be inserting inline citations with Bookends into a Scrivener document, and then – after you have compiled and exported it as a Rich Text File document – you want to convert the inline citations to footnot...

Re: Footnotes within Body Text

Thanks for this. After posting on the forum I discovered a couple of similar macros in the Macro repository, but for some reason the text -> footnotes one only partially works. Your 'new' macro works fine and does exactly as it should so thank you very much. Nonetheless there are still some oddities...

Footnotes within Body Text

Some years back Kino, or possibly Phillip Spaelti produced a macro that would convert footnote text within the body of a document to 'proper' footnotes. An example: .... policy at the point where it becomes an officially endorsed course of action{Stephen V Ward, Planning and Urban Change (London: Pa...

Re: Prefs and New File

I think this probably goes back to deficiencies in the Apple text engine rather than anything Nisus has done. I agree that New File.dot has been used since way back when, but after editing the file, despite any new file created having the *new* 16pt line spacings, they don't appear in subsequent edi...

Prefs and New File

In the prefs there is an option under New File -> Format to set the line spacing in multiples and fractions of a line. For example I set this at 1 line using 12 pt Helvetica. I then edit Nisus New File and set the spacing to 16 pt and the default style to Normal - which also uses Helvetica and 16 pt...

Thanks Hamid. I thought that was the case. :)

Thesaurus

I currently have a copy of the Nisus Thesaurus in my Applications/Utilities folder. Given that with NWP 2.1 this is incorporated into the application, is it safe to remove this, or does 2.1 simply link to it?

Re: Future viability of Nisus

2.1 from 2.07 doesn’t sound like a big upgrade -- maybe just an update to keep up with Apple;s OS changes. [...SNIP...] But heavens, that was private beta 5 months ago! Is Nisus down to one engineer working part-time or something? cheers, geoff I think you're underestimating the changes to Nisus wh...

Re: What is Nisus doing when it is "typesetting text"?

If it's just a simple diary/journal type app you want then DayOne is also worth considering. iPad/iPhone versions are also available. All via the appropriate app store.

Re: Pointless Article

It's all about page hits……

Anything on that site that can shoehorn in a mention of Apple however tenuous the connection, is guaranteed masses of page hits from the Apple haters.

Re: Nisus Express to Scrivener?

What's the best way to move a document created in Nisus Express into Scrivener? Thanks. You will probably get a more detailed reply if you hop over to the Scriv forums. http://literatureandlatte.com/forum/ That said, since NWE native format is .rtf I doubt you will experience any serious problems.

Possible Nisus Macros Book

I've recently had to delve into using VBA Macros with Word and whilst surfing Amazon for information on VBA and macro construction, I realised that no such manual exists for Nisus. I know you can get stuff from the Help menu, but has anyone thought of doing a manual devoted solely to the Nisus macro...

Re: Possible feature Request(s)

Thanks again Hamid - not sure what I'd been doing wrong but for some reason I couldn't get it to 'stick'. I thought I knew my way round Nisus by now, but there's always something new you can learn.

Re: Possible feature Request(s)

Not a big deal but is there any way to make this automatic? IE make this permanent for all new files.

Anybody any thoughts on the David Hewson link?
