Re: incorrect soft-wrap position

Just a thought. Turn on invisibles, and examine the spaces between the words that follow. As you say it's come from a web page, my guess would be that they are non-breaking spaces, rather than standard spaces. The editor on the website I'm involved with regularly does that.

Re: What's happened to …

Thanks, Martin.

Though :drunk: (Not that I can imagine ever needing that!) in the original list seems to be missing ... it's no loss, however.

What's happened to …

… the emojis? Suddenly half of them are missing, and some of the others have suddenly grown bigger or changed.

Re: InfoClick to index achieves

First of all, because I use GyazMail not Apple Mail, I can't use InfoClick, but I do use MailSteward. I have been using MailSteward—in fact the 'Pro' version—since 2011 or 2012. At the beginning of a year, I archive all my mails from the previous year in separate year-named archives which I keep on ...

Re: Print issue with NWP 2.1.8 on MacOS 10.13.3

Installing that "macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 Supplemental Update" screwed up the keychain on my MacBook Pro completely and I had to spend an afternoon sorting the mess out and getting it to work again, partially with help from Apple; a friend's brand new iMac broke completely following installing it ....

Re: Import Table data from browser as text?

How about paste table then menu Table > Convert Table to Text?

Re: Splitting a page horizontally

I don’t normally approve of referring to different software on a forum for an app, but I’m going to break my rule here. What is being described here is done perfectly by Scrivener. It also works beautifully in partnership with NWP, indeed I believe NWP is the word processor of choice for Keith, the ...

Re: Trying to create index with imported PDF - page numbers

Hi, Celeste, I hope I'm following your chapter/section right. Also, if you've just moved to Mac and are therefore new to NWP, welcome, though it must mean learning a new application. NWP is great and a great companion to Scrivener. My immediate reaction to your two 'sticklers' would be, in NWP, to i...

Re: Trying to create index with imported PDF - page numbers

Hi Celeste, First of all, if Garamond—of whatever flavour ... I have both Adobe Garamond Pro and EB Garamond—is on your Mac, which you can check by opening FontBook and seeing if it's there, then it should be available to NWP. Or did you produce your PDF on a different machine which has Garamond and...

Re: NWP and iOS: About Back&Forth-ing

Further comment: NWP and Pages-via-.docx calculate line spacing on headings—and maybe paragraphs, but it's not so obvious there—differently. So when you first open a .docx in Pages, you have to enter each one of your different headings and adjust the spacing, so that in Pages, Spacing = Font Size + ...

Re: NWP and iOS: About Back&Forth-ing

Hi @pbasswil, I've sent you a private message on the Scrivener forum thread. I guess it will get through to you there sometime. In the meantime, the best I can come up with for you is to export your document from NWP as a .docx and open that in Pages. It does preserve all the heading and paragraph s...

Re: NWP and iOS: About Back&Forth-ing

Mellel for iPad, whenever I've looked, will only open Mellel-native format files. So you'd need to open your RTF in Mellel on your Mac and save it in Mellel format, open that in Mellel on your iPad, then open it again in Mellel on your Mac, save it as RTF or Docx and open that in NWP. Not worth the ...

Re: how assign Nisus Writer Pro as external editor in Scrive

As a long term Scrivener and NWP user, I don't think its possible to assign NWP or anything other WP directly as external editor for text files. If you are really desperate, you could try using the 'File > Sync > with External Folder…' route, but I don't know what would happen to the extra features ...

Re: Page breaking oddly

I would guess this is the result of "Prevent Widows and Orphans" and/or "Keep with Next". I'm on my iPad at the moment, so I can't check the exact terminology.

Re: Export to RTF issues

Ah, this is one of those rare cases where file format is important. RTF does not save images. RTFD, however, does. You cannot use the File|Export command to save as RTFD, but if you just Save As and save it as a RTFD document, you can send that document (it's actually a directory) and all your imag...
