Re: How to modify Quote Selection macro to strip white space

Macro works perfectly. Thanks Kino and Martin. You have saved me a lot of time trying to figure this out for myself and have taught me a little in the process. Thanks again for the comments. I mentioned before that I was a Nisus user pre OSX. I didn’t realize how much I missed the Nisus community. T...

Re: How to modify Quote Selection macro to strip white space

Martin, thanks for your help. As I said, I'm very new at this (yesterday & today) so it will take me a while to figure out what you've given me and the difference between the two. If you could point me to any resources (in addition to the Macro Reference Guide & the User Guide) to help get up to spe...

Re: How to modify Quote Selection macro to strip white space

Perhaps I am going at this from the wrong angle. I have been trying to find a way to trim the white space, because that is what I had to do to work around Word's limitations. What dawned on me is that I have no idea what the limitations of Nisus/regular expressions are. Perhaps there is a more elega...

Re: Page Guides Problem

Good enough. Sorry if that had been answered before. I tried to search for it, but may not have been thorough enough.

Re: Page Guides Problem

I second Matze's complaint. I am a new returnee to Nisus. I sadly left Nisus Classic for Word. I now find myself clicking the (invisible) page guide non-stop. Very irritating. I realize this is a feature many may like (though I'd personally prefer to do this in the ruler, rather than on the page), b...

Re: How to modify Quote Selection macro to strip white space

Hi Kino, thank you for your generosity and quick response. The macro worked as expected when the selected text was at the end of a paragraph. It did not work so well otherwise. These are my results: The appreciative writer said, “Thank you for the excellent macro.” “But it does not work in this situ...

How to modify Quote Selection macro to strip white space

Hi, I'm trying out NW Pro demo. I'd like to modify the Quote Selection macro to strip out trailing space in selection before enclosing it with quotation marks. I'm new to regex. Did a quick google and found: Search for ^[ \t]+ and Replace with nothing to remove trailing white space. It does not work...
