Re: decimal tab problem, chosing character with which to align.

Hi Martin, it was the problem where I click (and hold) below the bar in the scrollbar and the pages scroll upwards (or click above, and they scroll down)... It's been doing it through several versions of NWP, several OS and even two different laptops. This was years ago and we gave up on it. It must...

Re: decimal tab problem, chosing character with which to align.

What's curious about this is that, having set the system preferences to the decimal separator as a comma, Nisus seems to be ambivalent about the whole thing. The decimal tab still sets to a period and not a comma, and in the character panel my font size is"12.0". But line spacing is "1,3 lin", and m...

Re: decimal tab problem, chosing character with which to align.

Hi, yes, thanks, I tried that, although I'm still on High Sierra, it doesn't make any difference. Not sure why. Perhaps I need to reboot?

Re: decimal tab problem, chosing character with which to align.

Hi Martin, How are we getting on with this? (You've had ten years... :wink: ) I'm trying to do the opposite of the OP, I want decimal tabs to align with a comma since I'm writing in German. I can't even see how to do this using OS system preferences - language and region doesn't seem to have any eff...

Re: "Facing Columns"

Yes, I used to do this with PageMaker...

Oh well, not something I can't live without.

Re: "Facing Columns"

I don't suppose there's been any progress on this? Facing columns anybody?

Re: Drag and drop gone

(It's only in NWP, still works fine in TextEdit. Curious.)

Drag and drop gone

Hi all, I've just upgraded to High Sierra and amongst all the things that have gone wrong, in NWP I can no longer highlight a piece of text and then drag and drop it somewhere else. I can't find a preference to adjust this, and I suspect it's at the system level since it's only since I upgraded. Any...

Re: auto page numbers in body of text

Thanks for that. It certainly sounds like a more professional way of doing it (although for me, way slower. :) )

Re: auto page numbers in body of text

Ok, I've sort of answered my own question: yes and no (if anyone's interested). Since my form was a table, and perfectly sized for the page, I inserted an auto page no. in the appropriate place, copied the whole table and pasted 200 copies. So the page number has to be manually inserted, but holding...

auto page numbers in body of text

Yes: is it possible to have auto page numbers in the body of a text or just in the headers/footers? Inserting a page number only inserts to the current page and I want a page number on every page (without having to manually insert into every page). (Background: I'm clunkily trying to print out 200 c...

automatic new document

I've just upgraded to 2.1.4 and notice that NWP automatically opens a new document based on my template if there are no files open. This happens both if I tab though to NWP and if I double-click on a file to open it (if there are no files already open). Can I stop this? I generally don't want it, pa...
