Re: Deleting a cross reference

Well, the problem was that it wasn't a "small piece" of text, it was quite large. I was cross referencing a citation. So I had bookmarked some text; the citation, which I was going to reference elsewhere. The cross reference was the "name of the bookmark." So it inserted a lengthy string. But I deci...

Deleting a cross reference

So I just found out I don't know how to delete a cross reference from text. There doesn't appear to be a "remove cross reference" command, either in menu or in the Macro language. To be clear, I'm talking about a text that cross references another piece of text. You can change the crux reference, bu...

Re: Keyboard Shortcut for Special Characters?

While you've mentioned QuickFix's Martin, can I ask about a feature from Word I miss? THat's an automatic fix for two capitals at the beginning of a word or sentence; I've accidentally typed one in this sentence and left it as a demonstration. Right now I'm not sure I see how an automatic fix could ...

Re: Theming or using Dark Mode

Yes, official support for "Dark Mode" would be nice. That being said, a way to load a theme would also be nice. For instance, right now I am writing this at 11:30 at night, and frankly, I'd like things to be a bit darker; maybe even black background and white text. Of course, I might want to change ...

Re: How Do I Copy-Paste a "Screenshot File" That Pastes The Photo?

For your information, copying and pasting images, PDFs, etc into Nisus Writer Pro does work.... sometimes. It's a problem with Apple, really. They sometimes decide that a link to the picture is what is wanted instead of the actual image. I've noticed this in particular with pages of a PDF I am tryin...

Re: GREP

You don't need to use GREP, thankfully. You can use Powerfind instead. The key concept is capturing the text you want. So, try this "Find" expression: (Capture((AnyTextCharacter))).(Capture()(AnyTextCharacter)()) What I did what insert a "Capture" block from the "match" submenu. I then put the AnyTe...

Re: Scrolling leaks to other windows (sometimes)

Hmm, interesting. There is a setting to scroll splits simultaneously; to keep things in sync. It sounds like the first scenario you described was that one, and thus working as intended. But scrolling in one window shouldn't scroll a different window on a different document. This was a separate docum...

Theming or using Dark Mode

So I see all the appearance options in the Preferences, but I was curious: is there a way to save a "theme" or a set of colors, and apply them all at once? More specifically, I am trying out Dark Mode on Mojave, and was hoping to skin Nisus Writer Pro to match it better. But making each change one a...

Re: How to cleanup a history stored file

The interesting thing here is that I see the original point fairly often: Nisus documents with embedded images, PDFs, etc can balloon to large sizes that, when saved as a PDF is much, much smaller--even if the inserted images are PDF's themselves and presumably don't get downsampled or anything. I w...

Re: To Bold all text between parentheses

Yes, Regex is nice.... though to be honest, if you have a problem and resort to Regex, it's almost certain that now you have two problems, as the saying goes....

Nice to have, but best avoided!

Re: Complete Table of Content/Outline text visualization

I'm afraid the only thing you can do besides changing the width of the Navigator sidebar is to change the font and font size of the text inside it. In Preferences->Appearance, there's a preference for the Navigator sidebar font. Making the text smaller will allow more of it to show up. But if you ha...

Window objects

So while researching an answer for a question about palettes not fully on the screen I discovered that there appears to be no way to access the window positions in the macro language. You can show and hide the window but moving it appears to not be possible? You have to use applescript, I think, to ...

Re: Help needed: palette out of reach

Interesting little problem. There appears to be no way to programmically grab it. So: 1) try minimizing and unminimizing Nisus Writer Pro to the dock. Upon bringing it back it may redraw in a valid position. 2) Close all of your other floating palettes. Then, in the Window:Palettes menu, click off "...

Re: Paste does not work same in 3.0

If a different keyboard doesn't fix this, and Mellel, etc also do not appear to register the keyboard sequence, then it is likely that the system itself is messing around with it. Does System Preferences: Keyboard : Shortcuts show anything? Does Command V do anything--regular paste? Or perhaps Contr...

Re: Where Is the Upgrade Package?

The old Nisus Writer icon is still in the about box, mostly for nostalgia's sake--the "Nisus Man" logo has been there since the Classic days, and Martin has said they left it in the About box and somewhere else, just to keep him around a bit. If it says version 3.0 though, you have version 3.0. Like...
