Re: Character Styles and Attribute Problems (Linux Libertine

Thanks again, Hamid. You appear to have cracked it. The problem—once again—appears to be the Linux Libertine font. Here's what I've understood this time: by changing the version of the font used— that is, by changing from the True Type version to the Open Type version of the font—the problem is reso...

Re: Character Styles and Attribute Problems (Linux Libertine

Thanks, Hamid, for your quick reply. In my file, within the Character Style dialogue box, I’ve pulled up the “Typography Options” dialogue you’ve mentioned, and the option “No change” for Number Case is in fact already selected. But when I click the “No change” option again, a “Baseline: +4pt” optio...

Character Styles and Attribute Problems (Linux Libertine)

Hello, All, I’m writing with a question about character styles and formatting that I just haven’t been able to figure out. The example document attached (RTF & PDF) is a truncated version of a much, much longer typescript, where the problem is shown. In this document, the footnote reference marks—or...

Re: Merged Documents & Empty Lines

Thanks once again, Martin. As mentioned, I have no knowledge of Pearl code, but you've helped make things clear. And, in the meantime, the work-around you suggested is getting the job done.
Your follow-up is appreciated!

Re: Footnote Issues with Section Breaks

Thanks once again, Martin, for your input. I agree entirely that all content from a section, including footnotes, should appear before the next section starts. In order to answer your question, then, I think that the best solution to the problem noted above would avoid an otherwise blank page with o...

Re: Merged Documents & Empty Lines

Thanks indeed, Martin, for your helpful comments and advice. And thanks for filing a request for this feature. An easily accessible option to have Nisus skip empty merge placeholders and, consequently, not include blank lines in merged documents would be a very useful (to my mind, even essential) fe...

Merged Documents & Empty Lines

Hello, When doing a mail merge, some entries will not contain information for all "merge placeholders" and sometimes this will result in an empty line. For example, some addresses require a line for a "PO Box", while others don't: "First Name" "Surname" "Institution Name" "PO Box" "Address Line 1" "...

Re: Footnote Issues with Section Breaks

Thanks for your suggestion, Þorvarður. Although the manually inserted page break does stop the notes from one section overflowing into the next section, I'm still wondering if Nisus can do better. A page with no main text and only a few lines of footnotes at the bottom is less than ideal. Also, this...

Footnote Issues with Section Breaks

Hello, I've been noticing what I think is an anomaly with the way Nisus handles footnotes, and I was wondering if I was correct and if there's a way to fix it, or if I was missing something entirely. Here's the issue. Sometimes, at the end of a section, right before a section break which will start ...

Re: Strange TOC Behaviour

Thanks, exegete77, you're right. Elbrechet pointed this out, too, and the TrueType version of the font does work better. Using the .ttf fonts actually solves the formatting problem in the TOC. However, even with the .ttf version the very same formatting problem remains in the Index. Go figure…

Re: Strange TOC Behaviour

Yes, I tried that, thanks. I also tried deleting the Index and re-inserting it. But, unfortunately, neither of these things worked.
It's so strange that the solution you suggested works for the TOC but not for the Index.
Stef.

Re: Strange TOC Behaviour

Thanks again, Elbrecht, your comments are helpful. I followed your advice and installed the TrueType version of Linux Libertine, and it solves the problem in the TOC. In other words, when using Linux Libertine (TrueType), there are no anomalies in the formatting of the TOC, as described above, and t...

Re: Strange TOC Behaviour

Thanks, exegete77. Your comments reassure me somewhat. Hamid couldn't reproduce the problem, and so I was wondering if it was just my machine/setup. It thus seems that there can be issues with the Linux Libertine fonts in certain situations, which is really unfortunate, because, as you say, the font...

Re: Strange TOC Behaviour

Thank you, Elbrecht, for taking the time to comment. I followed your advice, checking that the fonts were validated, and I cleaned out the font caches. Unfortunately, it didn't make any difference. This really is an odd problem which seems to occur with the "Linux Libertine O" font. In fact, in orde...

Re: Index Formatting Issues

Thanks, Hamid, for your quick reply and for suggesting the word list & concordance file solution. I've done a few quick tests and, in short, the method you suggest works: the index entries are formatted as they should be. I can't figure out why using the Power Find method, with the Tools > Index > I...
