Re: LibreOfficeImporter hanging

Do either of you use Default Folder? The last time I experienced LibreOfficeImporter using 100% CPU, Activity Monitor said Default Folder X Agent was "not responding". Another clue is that I always seem to be using Safari when LibreOfficeImporter uses 100% CPU, but this may be a coincidence. How ab...

Re: "Go to Next Comment" fails with nested comments

Well, it's due to the difference in how they are handled. Footnotes all live together inside a single text object (and Nisus "cleverly" uses tabs, returns and page breaks to separate them, much to Kino's chagrin). But Comments and Table cells each form their own text object. Thank you -- that makes...

Re: "Go to Next Comment" fails with nested comments

Philip already provided some elegant ways to do that with a macro, but here's another: Find All '(?:.|\n)+', 'E', '-ac' Menu 'Paragraph Style:Comment' That leverages the Find's "where" argument to only match text in the comment areas. Thank you (and Philip for the previous simplification). That's v...

Re: "Go to Next Comment" fails with nested comments

I'd consider this a bug, especially as the "Go to Previous Comment" command has no troubles. I'll file it, thanks. I hadn't noticed that "Go to Previous Comment" behaves differently. But the definitions of "previous" and "next" are also quite strange. I've just placed five successive comments on th...

Re: Can a macro address tracked changes?

That sounds like a bug to me. You should report it (using Feedback.) I think it's a bug in my document after too many exchanges with Word users. I tried it on a clean document and it's fine. Looking more closely at what happens when I run the macro on my working document: some of the language chang...

Re: "Go to Next Comment" fails with nested comments

Anyhow just one more comment to the "Go to Next Comment" you mentioned and used in Martin's macro. That command does work for nested comments. I just tested it. However Martin's macro doesn't find them, since it uses the expedient of placing the selection after the comment to look for the next one....

Re: "Go to Next Comment" fails with nested comments

$doc = Document.active foreach $comment in $doc.allComments … end or something to that effect. Thank you. After some fiddling: ForEach $comment in $doc.allComments $range = Range.new(0, $comment.text.length) $selection = TextSelection.new($comment.text, $range) $doc.setSelection($selection) Menu 'P...

Re: Can a macro address tracked changes?

Help > Macro Language Reference I feel pretty stupid now, but thank you. What do you mean by "Text Language Changed"? Are you talking about the language attribute? In that case you would have to get the attributes using ".originalTextAttributes". This is itself another object. But all of this is do...

"Go to Next Comment" fails with nested comments

The "Go to Next Comment" command doesn't seem to work as I would expect when comments are nested (i.e. when more than one separate comment is applied to the same piece of text). The first such comment is selected OK, but subsequent ones are ignored. Is this a bug or a feature? I'm posting here becau...

Re: Can a macro address tracked changes?

This macro would seem to do the trick Philip, you are a genius. That works perfectly, except for changes to the language. Is there a corresponding property for this? I tried "isTextLanguageChanged" and "isLanguageChanged", but neither of these works. Background: I'm exchanging an RTF document with ...

Can a macro address tracked changes?

I'm working on a long document containing many tracked changes. I'd like to accept the 95 percent of the changes that relate to formatting, and keep the rest. Could a macro parse tracked changes and distinguish between the different types?

Thanks
