Re: Move Files Within Document Manager

Ah - thanks Philip - I thought I was doing something wrong. But your sandboxing error makes perfect sense.

Have a great day.

Move Files Within Document Manager

Hi there

I never thought to move files between folders in the Document Manager, so I tried today and got a permissions error. The files are being moved between folder groups.

Is there a way to give the DM permission to allow me to move files?

Thanks
Lou

Re: Import Style via Macro

Hi Philip,

It seems to work either way, but I went with your second suggestion, it looks more complete to me from a code perspective.

Woo hoo. :D

Thank you!

Re: Import Style via Macro

Thank you very much Philip. Below is what I ended up with, which works super well. The additional code that you see was taken from one of your responses to another question. So thank you for that as well. What this does is allow me to write with a stylesheet that works best visually for the screen, ...

Import Style via Macro

Hi there,

Is there a way to import a style sheet from my Style Library and have it replace the existing styles? I have tried the following but it didn't work.

Code: Select all

$doc = Document.active
$doc.addStyles 'Manuscript Draft', 'replace'
Thank you.

Re: Macro to create new file from a template

Hi Philip,

You were correct, the hash did need to be a pair with @true. You fixed my macro, and I learned something new so this is actually a double thanks to you. Also, it did not need sandbox permission.

have a great day,
Lou

Macro to create new file from a template

Hi there - tried below to get Nisus to create a new untitled document based on the name template, but all it does is open the dot file for editing. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks Lou $templatePath = "~/Documents/Nisus/Templates/Manuscript.dot" $opt = Hash.new('NewFile') Document.openWithOption...

Re: Future viability of Nisus

I used my iPad for a few articles last year. It wasn't bad, but every time that I sat down to my laptop I moved through my assignment much more quickly, mostly because there's no cutting and pasting frustration. Additionally, I had no idea how much I rely on using comments for notes, sort of an adva...

Re: Future viability of Nisus

…plus the popularity of plain text, minimalist editors… Nisus really outpaces a lot of other writing software because it is spectacularly extensible and adaptable. This is why Nisus will soldier on and continue to grow. Ultimately we writers will need the ability to do many, as yet unknown things w...

Re: clip selection as plain text

Hi there, to add to the great work that dmorgan did, I'm posting a macro that will copy the entire document as plain text to the system clipboard. It will also put in double carriage returns between paragraphs if necessary.

Thanks

Page breaks for chapters.

I don't insert page breaks while I'm writing. For me it's just one more thing to think about while editing text and moving things around. But when I'm done, this macro inserts a page break and three carraiage returns before all Heading 1 styles (which is assumed to be your chapter titles) except for...

Easy Navigator Access

I am forever toggling the navigator panel, especially in full screen mode. This macro opens the Navigator panel to the Table of Contents view, when activated again it changes the view to the Bookmarks view, and finally when activated again it closes the Navigator. It makes life easier by having one ...
