I was not able to reproduce this behavior.
Same here. Reopening the document shows no additional characters.
Must have something to do with the new operating system(s).

Re: hyperlink reference to bibliography

All of this talk about numbered bibliographic entries makes me nostalgic for LaTeX. LaTeX bibliographies allow you to use symbolic link names and resolves them to numbers when it typesets the article or book. … and will a click on the reference symbol in the PDF then take you directly to the corres...

Re: Citation Cross-reference problem

Thank you Philip for the step-by-step instruction of how to join the two parts. If I come across any errors I'll let you know. I'll have to study this carefully. You are using commands that I'm not yet familiar with (substring, deleteInRange, insertAtIndex), and I have forgotten why you always do th...

Re: hyperlink reference to bibliography

It's quicker than doing it manually, but still not fully automatic Oops! In my test I used the Vancouver style which is similar to the AIAA style, but it has a slightly different bibliography format. Sorry about this mistake. Find All should look like this: 2.png # Ensure the bibliography is select...

Re: hyperlink reference to bibliography

Hello David, Assuming you are still using a style based on the AIAA citation style where every reference in the reference list (= bibliography) begins with a number enclosed in brackets <https://www.aiaa.org/publications/journals/reference-style-and-format> you should be able to do this if you selec...

Re: Incremental margin numbers in legal texts / Randnummern

Thank you Philip for your thoughts and suggestions regarding how to refine the macro. One problem with inserting temporary markers into the paragraph is that the macro would presumably remove these when run. In that case running the macro a second time wouldn't be possible I think they should indeed...

Re: Incremental margin numbers in legal texts / Randnummern

This seems to work very well if the sample box is set to "float with paragraph." Is it possible to add something to the macro in order to prevent numbers to appear where empty paragraphs are? 1.png Apparently, not all paragraphs should have a number. If the user inserts a place holder at the beginni...

Incremental margin numbers in legal texts / Randnummern

German legal texts often require marginalia in the form of the so called Randnummern (margin numbers.) Randnummern are serial numbers that are cited and allow people to refer to exact places in the text. They are used in textbooks, legal commentaries, administrative regulations, court decisions, etc...

Re: How to move the insertion point into a header?

Hello credneb, wouldn't it be easier to manually select the desired header and then run the macro? Whatever text is to be pasted would have already been copied/generated anyway for the macro to work even if the desired header could be easily selected by the macro. You are quite right. As I explained...

Re: How to move the insertion point into a header?

Hello Philip, Yes, of course. There is the menu command "Go To Header" in the "View" menu. I overlooked that too! This menu command is the right thing for my purpose; and with the defined command you show us once again that there are few things one can not do with Nisus macros. :–) The macro was act...

Re: Footnote/Endnote References issue

Welcome to Nisus. I'm not sure I fully understand what you mean. Do you want to reference a footnote in many different parts of the document? Something like this: (see footnote 5.) If yes, then you can easily do this by inserting cross-references. Insert Reference To should be set to "Footnote" and ...

Re: Feature request  : Placeholder the the endnotes section

When testing the endnotes and the bibliography, I first created a Lorem ipsum document with 5 sections, then inserted the endnotes, and finally the temporary citations from Bookends. By my second test I inserted the endnotes and citations parallel and got a slightly different result. If you want the...

How to move the insertion point into a header?

Is there a way to move the insertion point into a header or a footer with a macro?

Obviously, this is supposed to be a part of a longer macro where something is pasted or automatically typed into the header.

Re: Feature request  : Placeholder the the endnotes section

I had other requests, such as automatic integration of titles in the headers, that would be helpful Are you referring to "running headers" or Mentions as it's called in Mellel? You can do this with cross-referencing. Bookmark the title, a heading or whatever text you want to appear in the header. T...
