Dear Martin and Steve, Thanks so much. This provides me with a great template for building all sorts of global scope macros. I made really heavy use of global options in NWC for sorting and maintaining my correspondence. I'm getting a lot of them back, now. Two last (I hope) questions: 1) What's the...

Dear Martin, Thanks! I can divine the general form from your two examples, if they don't do everything I need. I've been a satisfied Nisus user since the days of the Powerbook 100. What is that; fifteen years? Something like that. I actually stopped at v6.0; I ran into some sort of init conflict whi...

Dear Martin,

Hah! That was it! Used shift-splat-R instead of option-splat-R and the macro behaves as I'd expect it to. Thanks!

Dear Martin, Thanks! If I assign a hot key to that macro, it'll work well enough. Save All and Save All Changed really need to be built into the next version, though. I'm less interested in simple searches than search and replaces. I work on multiple documents at one time and I'm frequently doing ga...

Dear Martin, Thanks for the quick response. That script you pointed me at is a lot uglier than even my way of handling it. I think I'll stick with the cut-and-paste approach. But... I've hit an oddity. The folllowing macro works fine when I invoke it from the menus. But if I assign a key combo to it...

Repeating a selection?

Dear Folks, I'm new to NWP, long-time user of NW Classic; I'm not used to writing in NWP. Here's my problem: I want to do repeated search/replaces on a body of selected text. The problem I'm running into is that after one search/replace, the selection changes from the original one to the material re...

Working on multiple documents

Dear Folks, I'm new to NWP, long-time user of NW Classic. I made heavy use of multiple-document operations in NW Classic, such as search/replace on all open docs, save-all, and save-all-changed. I can't find similar functionality in NWP. Am I missing something, or does NWP lack these seriously-usefu...

2/8/05 Dear Folks, Oh, never mind. Booted up my PowerBook to check messages this morning, launched Nisus, and guess what? Yeah, the catalog's back. I swear I did nothing between yesterday and today. And I've spent three days jiggering settings, reloading old versions, reinstalling system components,...

Nisus 6 Catalog Window is blank grey!?

Dear folks, I'm sure this will turn out to be one of those "is it plugged in?" problems, but ... I'm running Nisus 6 under OS 9. Suddenly, for no reason that I can discern, I'm getting a blank gray window where the catalog window should be. I've tried the following: 1) Throwing away the four Nisus p...
