Re: invalid paper size

When you go to print, what is the Presets selection in the print dialog? I wonder if that might be overriding your selection. (E.g. Last used settings might override what you have selected to go with the template.) Martin or others will have to weigh in on the relationship between the page set up in...

Re: invalid paper size

What is the custom paper size you're attempting to use? Yes, I've done a lot of custom sizes with that printer as well, but the only times I've encountered this error it was when I had tried to do a size the printer itself ruled out of bounds. (There certainly might be other reasons, but I thought t...

Re: invalid paper size

That error is usually a printer restriction. What printer model are you trying to use?

Escape from Footnote change request

Hi, I love being able to hit escape and leave a footnote to return to the main text. What I don't love is that the footnote reference is selected. If I begin typing immediately, I delete the very footnote I just wrote! With this behavior I have to leave typing position to arrow right off of the note...

Could you use a glossary entry for each of the recurring items?

Re: Alt text for tables

Thanks. I'll try those suggestions. The tagging is like alt tagging in HTML. These will be PDFs posted on a course management website for students. Federal education regs require that they be readable by screen readers for the visually impaired. For tables the tag is comparable to a title for the ta...

Re: Image alt-tags

Adrian,

That's an ingenious solution. I'll have to see if that passes. I've also considered captions, but I'm waiting to hear back to see if that will pass ADA.

Re: Image alt-tags

Thanks, Adrian. My use case is a bit different. I need to produce documents, convert them to PDFs and then post them in a learning management system. Due to ADA requirements the PDFs themselves must include readability features like alt text / tags for images. MS Word has the capability to add these...

Alt text for tables

One more accessibility question. Current requirements for universities include tagging tables in documents with a description or alt text. Is this possible in NWP?

Thanks

Image alt-tags

Hi, For accessibility purposes I need to be able to add alt tags to images for screen readers. I couldn't find anything in the user guide on alt tags. Right clicking I can see the image description, but don't see a means to edit the image description. Is it possible to add alt tags to images? If so,...

Re: Footnote: question re. divider line

A small change can be made by changing the alignment of the divider line from bottom to center or top in the style. You could also create a larger gutter and then change the alignment to create more space if the alignment alone is not sufficient.

Re: Setting paragraph style within a text box

That's odd. When I increase the padding, it alters the distance between the space between the box line and the first line of text. I find these sorts of settings can be quite different from user to user, or probably more precisely document to document, though often I can't spot why. Hopefully one of...

Re: Setting paragraph style within a text box

I believe if you increase the vertical padding on the text box itself, that will give you the spacing you're looking for.

Re: English lit. doctoral dissertation workflow: Ulysses + N

I wrote my dissertation in Palatino and liked it's readability. When it was published it was done in Garamond, which also turned out very nicely. I know that many journals use Century Schoolbook.
