Yes, I can! Yes, I can! I downloaded the Nisus Writer Pro zip version from the Nisus website, and it installed perfectly! 5;55 pm, Sydney time, Wednesday 31 August. Many thanks! PS: Did you know that San Diego was where they invented WD40, way back in the fifties? It's even famous in Sydney! So give...

Cannot install Nisus Writer Pro v 2.1.5

I have downloaded this version from two sources, and nothing happens. When I ask to "reinstall" the box goes away and nothing (nothing) happens. Please?

Quark Express and Nisus Writer Pro, instead of Quark + Word?

Any chance of stepping in and taking over Quark's automatic XML formatting of documents in Microsoft Word?

Re: Macro: convert superscript digits to plain digits, endno

Sorry for my long absence. I plan to convert RTF files to HTML for a WordPress blogging platform which I use for an issue-based magazine, appearing twice a year. I would like to be able to convert a Word document with footnotes (indicated by superscript numerals) (automatically converted to RTF by N...

Macro: convert superscript digits to plain digits, endnotes.

Can anyone provide a Macro to change
endnotes (and in-text references) designated by superscript digits to
endnotes (and in-text references) designated by plain digits?

Many thanks, if so. JT

Re: "Keep with following" not available when I need it.

The kindly computer engineering folk at Nisus have provided a way of turning on Paragraph Numbering that seems to solve the problem: hint: it's hidden under View > Line Numbers > Show paragraph numbers this section.

Preamble: I run a small literary magazine, the Journal of Poetics Research, at poeticsresearch.com I supply articles in HTML form on a WordPress site there. Each article is also supplied as a downloadable PDF file -- academics seem to like and demand that. Because quotes from articles can't be refer...

Re: Auto increment applescript to number paragraphs in BBEdi

Thanks, kindly, phspaelti, but I tried to run your macro and received this message:

There was an error on line 1 in the macro "Number Paragraphs with Carets".
Unknown menu item path:

Auto increment applescript to number paragraphs in BBEdit

The BBEdit people kindly supplied me with a piece of AppleScript that auto-increments paragraph numbers in a document, where I have previously numbered all paragraphs with a caret: ^ The script changes the caret to 1, 2, 3, ...1,000, 1,001, 1,002, etc with no limit, sequentially incrementing the num...
