Re: multi-file search

I'm going to break a habit of (roughly a third) of a lifetime! I don't like to discuss alternative software on a forum like this, but ThosGreen's problem pushes me to do it. This is precisely the situation that Scrivener is designed around. All those sidecar files, notes to self, and written-uo sect...

Re: Help with Macro sentence spacing

The interesting question is: How did Julie end up with the situation she found herself in? I suspect that she typed a sentence, concluded it with a period, followed that with a couple of spaces, and only then used the Insert Footnote command. I think we'd need to see the macro Julie found. The way ...

Re: Help with Macro sentence spacing

In the spirit of stable door shutting… I didn't know about that macro, but my solution would simply have been to use Find & Replace. You set it to find all double spaces and replace them with single spaces. Not only would it replace those you typed deliberately after full stops, but it would als...

Re: Word Wrap and Plain-Text Paste

Absolutely agree, Martin. But why Word and many other editors like JCE (in Joomla) chuck them in all over the place mystifies me.

:D

Re: Word Wrap and Plain-Text Paste

Thanks Adrian for pointing that out… I failed to pay attention to what \u160 is! I get a lot of documents sent to me in DOCX format which are also peppered with those No-Break Spaces. I just replace them as I see them, though a quick macro might be useful. I also replace them ( ) on the web...

Re: Word Wrap and Plain-Text Paste

Does the "Zap Gremlins" macro not remove them?

Re: Replace character style

Hi Tacitus, I'm really glad to help. I've been using NW(P) since it was first available on OS-X I didn't use Nisus Claasic, though I had it, as I was using Word 5.1a (the last good version of Word in my opinion!), but I did get Nisus installed on 24 Macs at the School of Languages where I was workin...

Re: Replace character style

To continue… :) I've been playing around with a project that has Section breaks, using two different Compile formats to RTF, and in neither of them is there any difference in the footers in the different sections. I tried it with both the default 1 inch margins all round, and also with the footer ma...

Re: Replace character style

Hi @Tacitus, I wrote a reply earlier in the thread, but it took me so long to write it that it was redundant by the time I'd posted it. I don't think I've ever encountered your footer problem with Scrivener --> NWP, but I'll have a shufti. Any information you can give me about your Scriv project and...

Re: Narrow No Break Space and footnote marker

On the other hand, I'm not sure why I'm so fussy. My favorite work environment in Nisus is draft view without palettes and with the toolbar hidden. I want all the features behind those things. When it's time to write, I just want me and the words in a simple view. And that is more or less precisely...

Re: Narrow No Break Space and footnote marker

Ditto on NWP's styles. Most what you do in Scrivener's compile, at least when compiling to word processing formats, is easier and quicker with Nisus style sets. If I were to wish for a change, it would be to have page styles included in the style set. That would make documents complete chameleons. ...

Re: Change identical style in several files

I have been using a macro to apply a style collection to an existing document for many, many years now. The code was almost entirely written for me by Martin. I recently created a simplified version of it for another NWP user. It starts by asking you to select the style collection you wish to import...

Re: Narrow No Break Space and footnote marker

Hi Martin, Thanks for coming in. My problem was when editing my style collection directly — e.g. ~/iCloud Drive/Nisus Documents/Style Library/Standard.rtf — by opening it in NWP. When I modified the Footnote style in another (normal) document and exported it to the style collection to replace the ex...

Re: Narrow No Break Space and footnote marker

24 views but no suggestions. On the other hand I have solved the problem. As I found, modifying the style in an actual, content-containing document seemed to preserve the space on saving, closing and reopening, where modifying the style collection—an RTF document with no content but with a styleshee...

Narrow No Break Space and footnote marker

Does anyone know how to insert the 'Narrow No Break Space', Unicode U+202F/UTF-8 E2 80 AF, into the 'Before Text' space in the Footnote pane of the stylesheet in such a way that it will be saved. Screenshot 2022-07-09 at 15.16.08.png I wish to use it in at least one of my style collections that I ap...
