Re: Serious bug with Keep Paragraph Together

I never heard back as to whether this was a bug or something strange with my document. If it was a bug, is it fixed in the latest release?

Thank you very much.

A macro for a playwright

I have no idea whether this can be done, but I thought I would ask. Suppose I am writing in the Style "Character." I can set it so if I press enter, it goes to Style" Dialogue." My question is: is there anyway to set it so that if I hit Tab at the end of the line, it would go to the style Parenthesi...

Serious bug with Keep Paragraph Together

Suppose you have a style where you have chose to keep the paragraph together. If you make changes to the document, this will not automatically update and you end up with paragraphs that are, in fact, not kept together. You instead have to close the document and then reopen it for the formatting to u...

Thanks for that suggestion, but I couldn't quite get it to work. The macro below sort of works, but it isn't able to handle any kind of punctuation, i.e. when it gets to a comma or apostraphe, it doesn't delete the word, just the punctuation or a bit of the word. Thanks as always for the help. $selL...

After some labor, I fixed the problem.


The problem was that some text was being indicated as styled one way, when it really wasn't. When I restyled it the same way, everything worked out okay.

Strane Save as PDF Problems

I have a formatted rtf Nisus document, which I then save to PDF. The PDF has a few pages that don't look anything like the rtf docuemtn. In addition, page breaks appear in different places in the pdf doc. Anyone know why this is happening?

Thanks.

Deleting a word

I want to write a macro that deletes the word where the cursor is. So the macro would first select the word, then delete it, and then move the cursor one character to the right so if I invoke the macro right away again, the next word is deleted. This is what I've written, but it doesn't do anything....

Replacing an Existing Style

Perhaps there is a way to do this, but I don't see how. Suppose you have a style called "Footnote" and you modify it. I know how to save the modified style as a new style, but not how to replace or update the existing style. Is there a way to do this? A macro that might do it?

Thanks.

This macro has been very helpful. The one limitation is that I have to go to the mouse to choose the colors.

Is there any way to make it so I can tab between the options? Alternatively, I could type g for green or r for red—something like that.

Thanks.

Small Glitch with Quickfix

I am a playwright and it's my practice to assign a single letter as an abbreviation for a character's name. So for example typing the letter d will cause DAVID to be typed out. Here's the problem: if I type "I'd" it appears as "I'DAVID." In other words, the program is interpreting the apostraphe as ...

Macro to Choose Highlighting Color

So I use various highlighting colors throughout a document, and was wondering if there was a way to build a macro where you could call up a menu that listed each color and then, by selecting a number, you would be able to choose a specific color.

Any help would be much appreciated.

This doesn't check to see if there is a character to the right, but it runs a lot quicker:

$selLoc = Selection Location
$selLen = Selection Length

Select Start
$selLen = 1
Set Selection $selLoc, $selLen
Edit:Convert:To lowercase
Select End

How do you use Clipboards

I am intrigued by having multiple clipboards, but have no idea why you might use them. Just to stash away a few phrases? Why not use glossary instead? What I really wish is that Nisus had the capacity to remember, say, the last five bits of text you cut or copied from a document. You could then brin...
