Re: How do I apply a template to an existing document (RTF)

I wrote "These files used to be in the (hidden) system Library folder, but no longer. "

That should be "These _folders_ used to be...."

Re: How do I apply a template to an existing document (RTF)

For my work I basically do not use/need styles or templates at all, but your mention of glossaries caught my eye. I use those _a lot_. So I looked at your second to last post, and the solution may be quite simple. I let Nisus install what it wants to install where it wants to find whatever it needs....

Re: Forum issue: Macro attachments?

I'm glad there was another reply, but that seems to bring up another problem. I'm pretty sure I'm "subscribed" to this forum, which should mean I get an email when there is a new post. But I did not receive an email in response to my reply to Philip or my own post (that does does not surprise), but ...

I experienced the same problem.
But this message is really just a test of the ability to respond via email.

Re: Default Zoom % List

meant to say that if you put the most frequently used ratio, say 175, first, no navigation is required to select it.

Re: Default Zoom % List

Here's a little macro that might help. Change the zoom ratios to whatever values you want. If you order them in the order of frequency (say you use 175 most of the time), put that value first. You can navigate the prompt with the cursor keys. Hmm. Can't seem to attach a .nwm file. Copy and save a ma...

Re: Print issue with NWP 2.1.8 on MacOS 10.13.3

I'm not on Sierra, and can only guess at the problem, but your print sample does not look skewed (meaning that it is printed on an angle to the page, such that the printed lines are at an angle to the edge of the paper, which is more likely a paper feed problem that would not appear in your print pr...

Re: Autofixing two spaces after a period.

Hi, Þorvarður. Yes, I understood that, but there is more than one way to skin a cat (although I have never actually skinned a cat). Another way should be for the glossary entry to trigger by any two consecutive spaces, converting to one. But there can also be complications with this. Being more inte...

Re: Autofixing two spaces after a period.

Never noticed this thread before. All of the responses focus on finding some character (period, other punctuation mark) followed by more than one space, or Þorvarður's glossary solution. Long past the Precambrian period of typewriters, and in the work I do, I can't think of any normal instance where...

Perhaps I should add that the new document window is whatever the Nisus default window dimensions are. Don't know if it's relevant.

Re: Nisus Default Template

I work with a MBPro connected to a large external monitor, and found this thread curious. On my setup, how the windows stack, or not, depends on the arrangement of the displays in the display prefs. Looking at the screens, the MBP screen is on the left side of the external monitor. I always move Nis...

Re: How to paste 500 pg .book & maintain orig pages and for

I suspect the answer will depend on knowing the format of the text you want to paste (or open) (doc, docx, rtf, some electronic publishing format, etc), and whether or not that format enables detecting where the pages break.
