Re: Boolean searches

Re: Boolean searches G’day, John et al Welcome to Nisus Writer. There is no Boolean AND operator in the Find system. The Find system essentially looks for strings. If you wish to find something containing both “this” and “that”, you would search for a string containing those words separated by appro...

Re: Word underline

G’day, Yohanan et al First, quit and relaunch Nisus Writer Pro. In fact, although it shouldn’t be necessary, why not restart the entire computer and then launch NWP, just to be sure. Next, select Philip’s macro from the hierarchical folder system in Nisus Writer’s Macro menu and see whether it works...

Re: Theming or using Dark Mode

G’day, Vanceone al OK. I followed the White Rabbit (aka Martin) down the rabbit hole and deep in the Warren of Wonderland I came across the Mad Hacker waving a piece of paper in his hand. Mirabile dictu , it was a script! — Script name: Toggle Day and Night — This script toggles the Preferences file...

Re: Theming or using Dark Mode

G'day, Vanceone et al I thought I'd write a short AppleScript script to do the job of swapping the plist files for different color preferences. (You need to go outside Nisus Writer because you need to quit NWP as part of the process.) But I'm afraid it didn't work. So I tried Martin's method manuall...

Re: Keyboard Shortcut for Special Characters?

G’day, Vanceone et al On the subject of inadvertent capitalization of the second letter in a word or sentence, I think the simplest solution is to select the offending word(s) and convert To Capitalized (ie, Edit > Transform Text > To Capitalized). I can’t remember whether the following keyboard sho...

Re: Macros not working in Mojave

G’day, mikecass et al

I think the default location for the Macros folder is:–

~/Documents/Nisus Documents/Macros

According to P. 624 of the Nisus Writer Pro User Guide, it should be in one of your Libraries, but this no longer seems to be the case.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Keyboard Shortcut for Special Characters?

G’day, Michael et al First make sure your special character appears somewhere in NWP’s Special Characters Palette:– Insert > Special Character > Customize Special Characters… Next, Nisus Writer Pro > Preferences > Menu Keys > Insert > Special Character > etc (until you arrive at the desired characte...

Re: character recognition

G'day, Yohanan et al It might be helpful if you posted a very short document (in Word format) that includes problematic material, so we can see what happens when we open it at our end. If the text is too sensitive, just replace the non-ideograph characters with an "x", say. Also post a Nisus Writer ...

Re: Word underline

G’day, Philip et al Your macro works brilliantly, Philip! I deliberately included a few tricky situations in that “Lorem ipsum” text, and your macro negotiated them perfectly. So thanks for that. All you need to do, Yohanan, is:– (1) Copy Philip’s macro code (2) Macro > New Macro (3) Paste (4) Save ...

Re: Word underline

G'day, Philip et al I agree with you, Philip. I myself rarely use underlining and never use "word underlining" in Yohanan's sense. But the question was posed and I thought I'd have a little play. And the choice between a "quick-and-dirty" specific-situation solution and a solution applicable in the ...

Re: Word underline

G'day, Philip et al Thanks for that, Philip. It’s very naughty of regex to treat “|” in this way. It’s somewhat akin to an “exclusive or”, I guess. A few observations: I’m not so sure that currency symbols are the problem here, as the expressions I gave find and treat them as expected. We don’t want...

Re: Word underline

G’day, Yohanan et al I think you are right, Yohanan. There appears to be no such command. But it is easy enough to create a simple macro that does the job for you. However, in my opinion anyway, one needs to be a bit more subtle than one might at first think. I would like all hyphenated words to hav...

Re: manual

G’day, Yohanan et al

See those three dots to the right of the title bar in the Character Palette? If you click on them, you are presented with a little drop-down menu that (among other things) allows you to choose between Condensed Mode and Expanded Mode.

Adrian

Re: manual

Re: manual G’day, Philip et al Thanks for explicating the font situation, Philip. I had in fact looked at both the Condensed and Expanded Modes but for some reason missed the fact that, although the fontname field appears as a drop-down menu in the former, one can still overtype the name there. (Tha...
