Re: Transform to Toggled Case not working?

G'day, Cristiano et al Ah, you are operating under a misconception regarding case, possibly due to a semantic issue. The word "capitalize" is ambiguous. In the context of Nisus Writer, a capitalized word is one whose initial letter is uppercase and subsequent letters are lowercase: it is not one wit...

Re: Delete all paragraph symbols within a paragraph but not at the end of it

G'day, CrisRich58 et al Reading between the lines, as it were, I wonder whether you were selecting your lines without selecting the unwanted paragraph returns at the ends of them, before invoking the Remove Line Breaks command. Selecting everything as one continuous slab of text should feed the comm...

Re: Transform to Toggled Case not working?

G'day, CrisRich58 et al

It works OK for me in NWP 3.0.3.

Re: Delete all paragraph symbols within a paragraph but not at the end of it

G'day, CrisRich58 et al

I created a NWP document with the characteristics you describe, selected all the relevant text (lines) as one slab, then applied the Remove Line Breaks command. It worked fine for me.

For reference, see P. 659 of the Nisus Writer Pro User Guide.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Import CSV file to table in Nisus?

G'day, wF et al If you replace all the commas in your comma-separated text file with tabs, then select everything and Convert Text to Table, you will get a proper Table. This may not be the complete solution in every circumstance. For example, I started with a Numbers spreadsheet which had commas in...

Re: Table Format for Sort by date?

G'day, wF et al I was referring to the command, Edit:Transform Paragraphs:Sort Ascending (A-Z), which your version of NWP baulked at. If you open my Sort by Date US macro, you will see that it uses two Sort commands from the main hierarchical menu: one from the Edit menu and one from the Table menu....

Re: How to construct search word which is in bold

G'day, all Oh, and be aware that there is a bug in Replace All in NWP 3.0.3, such that the replacement is not necessarily immediately reflected in the document. You need to click on the document once in order to return to it from the F/R dialog box and then click on it again to force a refresh. I've...

Re: How to construct search word which is in bold

G'day, vwnisus et al I suggest you copy an instance of the boldfaced word in the document and paste it into the Find field of the Find & Replace dialog box, and also into the Replace field there. Select the word in the Replace field and "unbold" it. Tick the following checkboxes: Formatting Sensitiv...

Re: Table Format for Sort by date?

G'day, wF et al

It sorts Tables for me, without any error messages.

Are you using NWP 3.0.3? That command is definitely there in the Edit hierarchical menu.

Re: Table Format for Sort by date?

G'day, wF et al All eight of those most recently uploaded macros are new versions. Version numbers would be a good idea. Next time! You don't need to test them all if you don't want to. The Sort by Date macros are standalone macros, incorporating the code from the Date macros rather than merely refe...

Re: Table Format for Sort by date?

G’day, all My aim all along in this project has been to devise a sorting routine that would work in a variety of situations, not just in Tables. In these broader contexts, things that look a bit like dates or parts thereof may not necessarily be the appropriate sort targets. I think I’ve now address...

Re: Table Format for Sort by date?

G'day, wF et al

How about this one? As long as the date comes first, it will operate on a selection to sort ordinary paragraphs, list items and tables. The day of the month is allowed to be expressed as an ordinal.
