Re: Toggle Paragraph Spacing...

Hi Philip, Thank you very much — that was an exceptionally clear and thoughtful explanation! I can now see what I was doing wrong trying to read the attributes, and where I would likely have further gone wrong by not distinguishing the 'display' and non-display TypingAttributes. The macro works grea...

Toggle Paragraph Spacing...

Hello All, I need a macro that can toggle the paragraph spacing before in the paragraph where the caret is. E.g, if the paragraph spacing before is currently set to 0 pt, running the macro will set it to 14 pt and vice versa. The part I cannot quite figure out is how to read the current "paragraph s...

Re: Autosave

After some very helpful behinds the scenes emails, Martin figured out the problem. It was indeed caused by my copying preference files from one computer to another. The location for the autosave was then incorrect and needed to changed. The place to change it is: Preferences > Doc Manager and then c...

Re: Autosave

Hello All, I hate to bump an 8 year old thread, but I've just started to get the 'Disabling Autosave' message as well. I've begun using NWP2 on a new computer recently and get this message the first time a file goes to autosave. Although it is a bit of a clunky work-around, here is a solution: go to...

Re: Large document drag

Hello Soliphint, A bunch of us who regularly use NWP2 for writing (especially academic writing) have experienced this problem (see http://nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=3689&hilit=slow ). I'm not convinced that the problem has as much to do with the length of file but with some peculiarity wit...

Re: TOC dot leader style not sticking . . .

Hi Martin,
Thanks for the quick diagnosis of the problem! Not too hard to work around the bug, but glad it will be squashed in the next update!

TOC dot leader style not sticking . . .

Hi All, I have encountered a problem with the Table of Contents (TOC) styles. The default dot leader style for the right tab is underline. When I change the style to dotted that change is then rightly reflected in the TOC in the document. However, when the file is closed and then reopened (and somet...

Re: BUG: track changes and footnotes

Hi Derick, I don't have a solution but, coincidentally, I had exactly this same problem occur to me while finishing up an article. I haven't tried to reproduce the problem (got side tracked by other things I need to do), but I'm also sure that I've had files where accept all tracking changes works a...

Re: Problem with right tab in footer

Hi Apuleius, I have exactly the same problem. I have no solution, but the work around (that I use anyway) is to move the right-align tab to the left very slightly so that it does not quite sit on the right margin but a fraction in. In most situations, you cannot tell that the page numbers (or whatev...

Re: Why is NWP so painfully slow? *Bump*

Hi All, I hate to bump a thread, but as much as I really like NPW2 I've just been struggling with its (periodic) unbearable slowness when it comes to editing documents with footnotes (i.e., going back into the document from the beginning to rewrite, add and delete text). Nothing different to report ...

Re: "Look up " strangeness . . .

Hi Martin, I think you have hit the nail on the head with the table causing the problem. Although I was testing the "Look Up" feature on a paragraph of text that was not in a table, the document does have a table in it above that paragraph. So, I just now tried starting a new file and typing in some...
