Re: A “Convert Text to Notes.nwm” macro?

Philip,
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all you do with macros in the forums and even off-forum. I use some that you have made many times a week. I really appreciate your generosity.

Re: Will Stedman's Medical Dictionary work with NWP 2.1.8?

Thanks once again, Þorvarður. We were able to get it all set up, and it seems to be working. The only problem was that in NWP Preferences, somehow, the settings were that for U.S. English, the dictionary was set to a mere "English." Any new words were going into a file called "Local Dictionary" (~Li...

Will Stedman's Medical Dictionary work with NWP 2.1.8?

Hi, all, Someone else is wondering if this dictionary is compatible with Nisus Writer Pro, and I get to post the question. http://store.dictran.com/stedmansplusmedicalpharmaceuticalspellcheckerstandardedition.aspx or https://www.amazon.com/Stedmans-Medical-Pharmaceutical-Spellchecker-Standard/produc...

Re: "Time Machine can't find your backup disk."

Martin, this is strange. When I went into Preferences > Time Machine, I was proven wrong. (I guess that's not so strange, but I don't like it!) The disk NWP's message says it can't access is an obsolete partition of a 1TB disk that is being populated with data from a Carbon Copy Cloner backup. So … ...

"Time Machine can't find your backup disk."

Files > Revert To > Browse All Versions When I did that I get the message that "Time Machine can't find your backup disk." What might cause that? I don't think I've ever used Time Machine, but I know I've used the Revert capability in NWP before and found older versions to revert to. I'm on Yosemite...

Re: 2.1.7 Can't get speech boxes to work

Philip,

Thanks for jogging my memory! I think I was just confused about which was what. I wanted the "Callout, Rounded Speech Box", but was selecting something else (and maybe stroke was set to zero, which further confused me). I think I get it now :)

2.1.7 Can't get speech boxes to work

I used to be able to get callouts to work, but now (I suppose since going to 2.1.7), they just look similar to regular text boxes. I'm using the icon for Text Box and then the item "Callout - Speech Box". Maybe someone could see if they can get it to work and let me know. If it works for you, it mus...

Re: Name Index and Scripture Index

Considering all these problems, in the end it might be best to write a macro to do the whole scripture index and not bother with the Nisus index feature. Rod, Philip has very unselfishly helped me a lot with similar macros. Kudos to him! I agree with Philip that probably the best thing is to do a s...

Re: Retain italics in Table of Contents?

There's room for improvement here, and I'll file a feature request, thank you. The problem will be in deciding which formatting to preserve and which to discard. The formatting you've all mentioned like italics, superscript and capitalization makes good sense, but it makes much less sense to preser...

Re: Yosemite forever

If it's any comfort to you, I'm still using Yosemite. I think the Mac OS is much too insensitive to backward compatibility.

Re: Cannot remove custom item on toolbar NWP 2.1.6

Thanks!

It actually worked. When I dragged the item out (when the screen was up allowing changes to the toolbar), then I got the question about deleting it permanently. I did. It's gone.

All's well with this issue! Thank you!

Cannot remove custom item on toolbar NWP 2.1.6

For whatever reason, Control + click or a two finger click on the trackpad does not bring up the contextual menu allowing me to delete the item. Below is a screen capture of the instructions in the manual at p. 414. Are others able to get this to work? I have a macro that I want to delete and replac...

Re: Retain italics in Table of Contents?

Thanks for your evaluation of the situation, Phillip.

Martin, do you think italics and other basic formatting should be carried over into the TOC? Are you willing to put it on the list for inclusion in a future update? Thank you.
