Re: Can't make the dictionary remember words

I am trying to add words to the US English dictionary. This is your custom dictionary. It can be found here: /Users/YOU/Library/Spelling/en My English custom dictionary is just called "en". Perhaps yours has the same name too. Anyway, select the file in Finder and choose Get Info from Fin...

Re: Can't seem to create a new template

The thing is, when I attempt to save something as a template, using "Save As" and "Document template" as the file type, the file does not automatically go to my Templates directory within the Document Manager. The Templates folder you highlighted in your screenshot is not an ord...

Re: Sample-Files?

Macros are not necessarily needed. You are right, Amontillado. I was just going to correct myself, but you were faster. :–) However, there are some very good style macros available that help automate things. My favorite is "Remove Unused Styles & add My Styles". This is good for clean...

Re: Sample-Files?

(Applying style sets) -> Do I understand right? There is a possibilty to apply a whole style set to a file to change all of the formatting at once - and switch all at once back? Yes, you can do that with macros. You should discuss that in the Macros Forum. How do I proceed? You can use different me...

Re: Sample-Files?

I'm not aware of any official sample files, so I support Amontillado's suggestion to provide the User Manual, or at least a part of it, as a sample file in RTF format. There is a video by James Tummins available which introduces Nisus to new users. It covers (1) Working Environment, (2) Using Styles...

This can also be done directly in Nisus, thus allowing us to bypass the Font Book. Just press Command + T, or Format > Font > Show Fonts

Re: FR: Have font search string look for matches in entire font name, not merely from the beginning

I want a mono-spaced font, but I can never remember the names of the ones I have, except that they have “mono” in the names. Have you considered a new customized font collection? You can create your own font-collections and have them appear in the Font menu. This can be done in two ways, either in ...

Re: Abbreviations by Typeit4Me

Why doesn’t Nisus accept the abbreviations by Typeit4Me I don't know the exact reason, but because of this incompatibility I switched to Typinator which works flawlessly with Nisus. However, TypeIt4Me works on my old MacBook Pro 2010 if I press the fn key each time after the trigger. I don't know w...

Re: Select All in Highlight

that command (actually a property, but who's keeping track) I'm all for using the right terminology, so thanks for reminding me, and thanks for the examples. I think one difference to Kino's macro is that his macro enables one to find and select any Highlighted and any Background color as well as c...

Re: Select All in Highlight

[Is it] possible to create a macro that selects All in Highlight. I think Kino's macro "SelectByColor" does exactly that. The ugly bit is that it prompts the user with color objects which are hard to read. I think Kino has a nice solution to this problem. He offers the option "Show S...

Re: Search/find any Hebrew characters

Another easy way is to use AnyHebrew from the Scripts/Blocks menu.
You can also use "\p{Hebrew}" (without quotation marks) if you are comfortable with PowerFind Pro.
