Re: NWP 3 Document Properties Feature Requests

Thank you, Martin. That does work. It seems that the key is having the "Replace Formatting" box checked in the find/replace window. If you don't have that box checked (and I did not) the replace does not work. With the box checked it works just fine -- and works across all open docs, which is what I...

Re: NWP 3 Document Properties Feature Requests

Custom properties have been working very well for us but there is one thing I can’t figure out. I would like to be able to do a find and then replace with a custom property. Let’s say I have a date string in 10 different documents. Same date string. Each document also has the same custom property “d...

Re: NWP 3 Document Properties Feature Requests

Thanks Martin. I am not sure that I would have ever found that despite having spent some time with the manual.

NWP 3 Document Properties Feature Requests

I am starting to leverage document properties, both standard and custom, into our workflow. Right now we are only using NWP for one specific task, which is writing and editing architectural specifications. It is very handy to set up a bunch of document properties that I can push to a set of files us...

Re: Automating PDF export with multiple files

Thanks for the response. That did not work but hopefully it is pointing me in the correct direction. I have the pdf export macro working from within NW but the integration with AppleScript & Automator is not quite on.

Automating PDF export with multiple files

I am looking for a little help with adapting our old workflows using Pages to Nisus Writer Express/Pro. I have a few questions but the first involves some automation. Our main use for NW will be in writing architectural specifications. It is typical for us to have a folder with 20+ individual files ...

Sure I have. Great program. The problem is that while it is a great outliner it is not a great word processor. Headers, footers, output, paragraph formatting, etc. is not what it was designed for. I have not tried OO Pro and the named styles feature sounds like it might help, but the OO is not reall...

Lists or Outlines

I have been following the various mac wps out there for a few years as we struggle to find an effective replacement for our workhorse of the past decade: AppleWorks. We have very specific and niche word processing needs. We write plenty of general correspondence and various kinds of reports and all ...
