Re: Compare Documents macro: suggestion to preload Find dia

Thank you very much for the excellent suggestion. Yes, it would be hard to find all changed texts when the target document is large. To make the task easier, using the attribute sensitive search would be a nice idea. However, personally, I’d like to use the Find panel for something else. So I wrote ...

Re: Making and index of first lines?

I just had an idea. Macro is not necessary. Switch to the Style sheet and add a TOC level to the paragraph style for normal text. First portion of every paragraph in that style will show up in the Navigator.

Re: Making and index of first lines?

How about adding bookmark to all the first lines of paragraph? The macro below will do the job. ### Bookmark First Lines ### Require Pro Version '2.1' $prefix = @S'_' /* • $prefix above defined will make it easier to distinguish bookmarks added by this macro from other bookmarks. • If your document ...

Re: hyphenation fails when importing from Pages 4.1

When I import it by "select all" and "copy" in Pages 4.1, then "paste" in Nisus, everything imports and the words will hyphenate properly. As I’m not using Pages, I may be wrong. But, from your description above quoted, I tend to think the issue to be a pseudo-problem. Please make sure that… 1. The...

Re: Save as PDF macro

$outputDir=$doc.filePath.filePathByRemovingLastComponent & '/' Save as PDF $outputDir As Save As PDF command is not clever enough, you have to give it a full path of the pdf to be generated. Something like this would work. $doc = Document.active $docPath = $doc.filePath # The next three line is unn...

Re: Create Index for Japanese Documents

With those macros (not exactly the same because of the necessity for applying special formatting), I created 索引 (index) for every volume of『井筒俊彦全集』( The Complete Works of Toshihiko IZUTSU , 12 vols and 1 supplement) http://www.keio-up.co.jp/kup/izutsu/cw.html https://www.keio-up.co.jp/np/search_resu...

Re: Create Index for Japanese Documents

It is tedious to type yomi (pronunciation of Kanji word represented by Hiragana or Katakana letters) for each Index entry. Here is a macro which inserts “yomi<space>” before selected Japanese word(s). ### Prepend Yomi ### # This macro add yomi before selected Japanese word(s) in Kanji, Katakana, or ...

Create Index for Japanese Documents

Here is a macro which [1] indexes Japanese words in the frontmost document as “yomi<space>word”, [2] inserts Index, and [3] remove “yomi” necessary only for sorting Index entries. ### Generate Index ### # This is a sample NWP macro to generate Index for Japanese documents. # Run against “kusabana.rt...

Hello Ulrich, Imagine that you have to write an English text from right to left and then take it with a macro in the correct order. Is that practical? For new Hatra texts, I think it would be easier to [1] create a short right-to-left paragraph “CBA” by running the macro with “ABC” selected, [2] sel...

Re: esreveR

There seems to be some confusion… Who in the world is supporting "esreveR" Unicode does support the esreveR style or what can be called so. The macros above just insert or remove Unicode formatting codes available since Unicode 3.0 at least, for over 10 years now. See “Unicode Bidirectional Algorith...
