Re: Macro issues …

Martin, Thank you for coming in on this. I've been away from my computer, so couldn't reply earlier. Your version of the footnote macro has solved one of my problems in that the code I was using worked for footnotes, but I couldn't get it to work on endnotes, leave alone in a document which had both...

Re: Macro issues …

I can sort the notes out—it is the ruler in the notes that is not being respected—by selecting a note and choosing "All in this style" from the status bar in the window-foot and changing the ruler which is not too onerous, but it would be nice to automate it so they follow the style sheet. Why do s...

Re: Macro issues …

Worse and worse … I'm running NWP on my last model 17" MBP—i7, 16GB RAM, 2TB SSID, MacOS 10.13.6, the last compatible OS version—and I'm beginning to wonder if that is not fully compatible with NWP 3.1. I have just discovered that PowerFind and PowerFind Pro, when set to find "Any digit", will only ...

Re: Macro issues …

Thanks Philip, I had come to the conclusion that there must be some sort of default text or code in the notes and markers that was not being found. I can sort the notes out—it is the ruler in the notes that is not being respected—by selecting a note and choosing "All in this style" from the status b...

Macro issues …

I know I have the reputation of being negative about macros :lol: , but … I have been looking into my macros, as the one I have always used is highly complex and is beginning to prove slightly ineffective — it was created for Scrivener v. 2, which didn't have styles. What I want macros to do is work...

Re: Macro command to Import from Style Library…

I am trying to use a modified version of the macro code provided by Philip as follows: CODE: SELECT ALL $folder = "~/Dropbox/nisus/Nisus Writer Settings/Style Library" File.requireAccessAtPath($folder) $editDoc = Document.active $styleLibDoc = Document.open "~/Dropbox/nisus/Nisus Writer Settings/St...

Re: Section breaks

Thanks Martin. I blush to say I found this by accident a few minutes ago. My cursor must have been in Section 1 all the time before, even though I was looking at lower sections. So all is good from that point of view. I've had to send in a couple of crash reports, but said I would send the file I wa...

Section breaks

When I compile a document from Scrivener, chapters are separated by section breaks. That is fine, because I have two streams of notes, one of which I want as Endnotes at the end of each section, the others as footnotes at the bottom of the page. However, NWP seems to have "This section has different...

Re: Two Languages at the same time

Hello Michael: when you say "check for both languages" I assume that you mean spellchecking? If so, then yes, Nisus Writer can automatically switch between spelling dictionaries as you write in multiple languages. The key to understanding this feature is Nisus Writer's language system . To state it...

Re: Strikethrough

Mark, forever the sceptic about macros :wink: Well, he's got a point. If all you are trying to do is apply strikethrough to the current selection, then there isn't much point to a macro. And depending on the task you may be better off using any combination of: a keyboard shortcut, using a character...

Re: Strikethrough

Why do you need a macro? Why not just set a shortcut (Preferences > Menu Keys > Format > Strikethrough, where you can set shortcuts for different types of strikethrough, including colour)?

Just wondering.

Re: Beware Catalina

Thanks Martin, I'll install NWP 3.1 on my 2015 5K iMac, which is running 10.15.5, and see how I get on. Have to say, however, that as I've been shielding all this time so haven't been able to take the computer in, but I'm going to have to get it reverted to !0.14 Mojave. As it is, it crashes several...

Re: Space around lists, quotations, etc.

I have always done the same as @ToddO for quotes. I also have a "First" style with no indent which follows from any heading or title, and is itself followed by "Normal", so my "Quote last" is also followed by "First".

:)

Re: catalina and Nisus Pro

Otherwise I’m sure you could use Graphic Converter to batch convert all your picts to jpeg or png.
