Re: Follow-Up Question to My Post "Text Variables": How Do I Attach a Character Style to a Custom Property?

Martin,

Thank you very much for the trouble you took creating the really refined macro. I'll look into it over the weekend in order to decide what works best for me and get back to you.

Best,

ninjagame (Detlef)

Re: Follow-Up Question to My Post "Text Variables": How Do I Attach a Character Style to a Custom Property?

G'day, adryan Thank you so very much for your "quick'n'dirty" solution! It works like a charm! So I have to give up on the Document Property features. But, as you wrote, it might not be a good idea to have Document Properties tied to particular formatting anyway. Well, can't be helped. But that's a ...

Re: Follow-Up Question to My Post "Text Variables": How Do I Attach a Character Style to a Custom Property?

G'day, adryan Thanks again for the quick answer. On second thought, and being familiar with Adobe InDesign's handling of text variables, I figured as much. Here's why I asked the question in the first place: If memory serves right, with Nisus Classic I could achieve the desired result using macros t...

Re: Text Variables in NWP 3?

G’day, adryan, Thank you very much for your truly comprehensive reply! As a native speaker of German and a part-time teacher of German as foreign language I know exactly what you mean. But rest assured - my intention using Custom Properties is primarily saving time typing recurrent character strings...

Re: Text Variables in NWP 3?

Does that make sense to you? As a matter of fact, it does. From what you are describing, I reckon that "Custom properties" would be the means of choice for what I have in mind. Question is now: How do I create a "Custom property?" BTW Where did you get the Donaudampfschiffahrtsgesellschaftskapitän ...

Re: Text Variables in NWP 3?

sn't that called Document Properties in Nisus?
Isn't that what the Glossary-Feature is for?
Well, I'll have to look into that. For now, it looks like some kind of workaround to me. But I'll be the first to admit that I'm wrong or have overlooked something.

Text Variables in NWP 3?

I've got another question. Is there anything in the way of text variables in NWP 3 like e.g. in Adobe InDesign? Example: In an SF novel I'm currently writing I have several names, terms, and sometimes phrases that always recur. Always typing them out in full length tends to be somewhat typo-prone. S...

"Autosave" Issue

There's another thing I've got the feeling that I'm looking at it but not seeing it: When I open a document and edit it, the "Autosave" function kicks in after a few moments. Now, let's say I want to try something out but at the end of the day decide that I don't want it. How do I go back to the un-...

"Print" Issue

Some tine ago, I've created a template for "official" letters, with letterhead and dummy spaces for address, date, and subject heading. For purely esthetic reasons, I've set the scale in the "Page setup" menu to 80%. This allows me to retain the main font size at 12pt and still have a more "nice" ch...

Re: Gylphs and paragraph styles in InDesign CS4

I'm not familiar with Minion Pro but it seems that the glyph you're trying to insert isn't part of Minion Pro. If your paragraph style requires Minion Pro as designated font, the glyph will be taken and displayed from a replacement font - which in turn triggers the plus sign.

Mike,

Thank you very much for the advice! Changing the alignment of the divider from bottom to top did it.
Have a nice day!
