NWP3 & Word files

From time to time I edit Word text files (.doc & .docx) of technical reports. As I have never got on well with Word, I tried NWP3 in the hope that it might do better than NWP2 does. Unfortunately it does not. I can live with the inability, that both have, to render graphics that are derived from Exc...

Re: Wawati SC

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately the Font Book that comes with Sierra (10.12.6 - v 7.0) does not include the suggested choice in its Preferences. By the way no other text processor on my machine behaves like this either nor did I have the problem before installing Sierra.

Wawati SC

Every launch I'm asked to download Wawati SC. How do I stop this happening? It is not a font that I want and being asked all the time is exceptionally irritating.

Re: A Problem with Case

Thanks, I'm afraid that I've been severely challenged by macro languages and Apple Script. If I've understood what has been written here, some software understands an RTF command to 'display as small caps' while other RTF-aware programmes do not. Checking this idea, I loaded an OCR generated RTF of ...

Re: A Problem with Case

You're right - my apologies. I mixed up the menus. To get the effect that I was writing about, the sequence is indeed Edit > Convert > To Small Caps. Curiously perhaps, when I highlight the Small Caps in Format > Character Case > Display as Small Caps, I find it ticked AND get exactly the same resul...

Re: A Problem with Case

Very interesting and helpful, thanks. I've done a quick & dirty test. I'm working with Goudy Old Style (don't know if my test applies to all font families). If I convert lower case to Small Caps using the button in the Tools drawer, there's no visible change in the size shown in the Font Family sect...
