Re: Move Comments to Marked Text (in one swell foop)—Solved

Yes, your version is a big improvement (of course). So: Thank you! I wondered why $listDoc = is in the final line $listDoc = Document.newWithText $commentList.join("\n") Of course it was in the macro I put up recently, but I didn’t really understand it. It came along for the ride when I copied/paste...

Re: Move Comments to Marked Text (in one swell foop)—Solved

Thanks, Philip.
Of course I was thinking of you when I mentioned the macro guru, but it's been five years (!).
I'm traveling now so can't try out your improved version.
Will do so next week when I'm back in town and thank you properly then.

Cheers,
James

Re: Move Comments to Marked Text (in one swell foop)—Solved

I wanted something a bit simpler: just a list of all comments in a document. This macro will do just that. It leaves some cleaning up to do via Find/Replace, which could be written into the macro no doubt. As is, the macro retrieves not only the Comments but also the name of the creator of the Comme...

Re: 2.1.8 in-app update

Have you tried downloading the installer, rather than doing it in-app?
That worked for me.

2.1.8 in-app update

Updating to 2.1.8 from within NWP (2.1.5 on OSX 10.13.1) fails at the last moment here. Update downloads fine and gets extracted; the error message comes only when I click on 'Install and Restart' Tried four times. Worked fine downloading installer and doing it that way. See screenshot. I'll hope it...

Re: NW for iPad?

Maybe you're right, Geoff.
I'd like to think not, but can't make a good case for doing so.

Would love to have a good reason to give Nisus more money, if you know what I mean.

Re: Better interaction with Bookends

Aside from your suggestion to include a palette or live list of Bookends references in NWP, do you have any other desires? We'd certainly love to hear them, and consider them as possible future enhancements. Thanks for your feedback! Rob is not alone. I would also second his request. As for your ki...

Live Biblio....(again)

I've confessed my trysts elsewhere ( https://nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=5458&hilit=Live+bibliography ). Here I want simply to ask: If Mellel can do it, why can't Nisus? I'm pretty sure that our friends in Solana Beach are busy cooking up something special, but maybe, just maybe, they could...

Re: Manage styles list?

You might want to have a look at the User Guide (under menu item 'Help'), especially what it says about Styles. But two things will help right away. 1. To remove a style from a document, go to View > Style Sheet. On the left you'll see all the styles in your document. Highlight any style you want to...

Re: Find Terms with Line Numbers

Thank you, Philip. This is perfect, and of course the second macro is what I really want. So an extra Thank You for that. I keep telling myself that one day I will study some of the macros you've made (for me) and learn to make them myself, but it seems that there is always just enough mysterious ma...

Find Terms with Line Numbers

I’ve got several documents, each with about 1000 lines (poetry). I also have a list of about 25 words I’m interested in finding and listing with corresponding line numbers. I do know how to find those words, and for the time being I’ve styled them (Bold) so that they stand out to the eye. But I'd li...

Re: Powerfind Q - Contains a semicolon in dialog

Glad you got it working and that the PowerFind version is helpful.
I know (?) there are things regular expressions can do that PowerFind can't, but I have no idea how to know what those things might be.

I should have said that Adrian's solution is more elegant ;-)

Re: Powerfind Q - Contains a semicolon in dialog

Adrian’s solution is the best. But since I don’t know how to write regex very well, I amused myself by trying to accomplish the same thing with mere PowerFind. This seems to work: “(AnyTextCharacter)(CharacterNotInSet[)“(])(1+ Shortest); (AnyTextCharacter)(CharacterNotInSet[)“(])(1+ Shortest)” As fo...

Re: Powerfind Q - Contains a semicolon in dialog

This works for me, but I got tripped up because I had plain quotes in the text being searched and smart quotes in my Find expression... Note Semicolon with space following. I checked by copying/pasting what's below into the search box. The bubbles get rendered here as parentheses. I put period, ques...
