Re: Content in table row to continue next page?

+1 for this feature request. It would be also very useful to have 1. An option to repeat table header on each page (for tables spanning multiple pages). 2. Ability to add text with vertical baseline; I don't know if the description wording is correct so here's an example: Screen Shot 2020-03-24 at 0...

Re: Line spacing when using Combining Diacritical Marks

Please try selecting the character fully. If there's no selection and you just have an insertion point (caret) the palette won't show that any font substitution has occurred, because no character is actually selected. Selecting the character inside a table gives the correct result for me as well bu...

Re: Line spacing when using Combining Diacritical Marks

Martin,
in regards to Formatting Examiner's ability to detect font substitution I made a quick test (using OP's document).
It seems that FE is detecting the substituted font for main text but not for text inside the table.
Am I missing something?

Re: Find/replace in each paragraph of the selection

Philip,
thanks again for all your detailed and clear explanations!

I'm sure they'll be useful for other beginners taking their first steps in NWP macro syntax.

Re: Find/replace in each paragraph of the selection

Hi Philip, I'm making slow progresses thanks to your help. 1. Find in Selection - Method 1. I'm afraid I don't understand your hint. Could you please give a worked out example? - Method 2: I agree with you it's a bit convoluted - Method 3: that worked perfectly so it's presently my go-to method. I j...

Re: Find/replace in each paragraph of the selection

Hi Philip, thanks for the thorough expalanation and step-by-step construction of the macro; really helpful (especially the tip about processign the array in reverse order). I have a couple of remarks: 1. The macro acts on the entire file and modify all bits of text matching the regex. I would like t...

Re: Find/replace in each paragraph of the selection

Hello Philip, thanks for your reply. The code I posted is just the first step in building a macro that should perform a replace with a variable string based on user input (i.e. the macro should check user input against the number at the end of each line). For the time being it would be enough to und...

Find/replace in each paragraph of the selection

A document of mine contains some text like the following (there's a tab between the text and the number; apparently forum sw doesn't allow it): Some text 12 Other text 43 Some more text 62 etc I would like to select all that lines and run a macro that adds a prefix and suffix to each line—two fixed ...

Re: Table Format for Sort by date?

A different approach probably better suited for the specific OP need could be: 1. Develop your table in NWP as you did using ISO dates (YYYY-MM-DD) that allows sorting 2. At the end of the work select and copy the date column of NWP table 3. Paste in a spreadsheet and change the format to something ...

Re: Table Format for Sort by date?

A viable solution is to use a spreadsheet to create the table content (maybe copying form an external source), manipulate it as needed and then copy to NWP. It works quite well using Excel; a table is automatically created on pasting in NWP (even though with invisible edges that you then need to mod...

Re: Print specific pages

Martin, Adrian, thank you for the effort put into solving the prolem! Martin's final macro will go straight into my Macro folder in NWP3. Remark: will all the valuable macros posted in topics like the present one be added to the official macro repository? I'm asking because I went through the reposi...

Re: Print specific pages

I "solved" the problem with a Keybboard Maestro macro (as it often happens). I put solved in quotes because it is simply a macro faking the user interactions in the NWP3 print dialog (you know, flashing panels, cursor magically jumping here and there; a kludge). It somehow works but it's not nice. I...

Re: Print specific pages

Good suggestion, thank you. The print dialog only has the "From" and "To" fields available for user input and both of them only accept a number (no commas or hyphens). P.S. Reading again your post maybe you interpreted my request as the need to print a range es 12-15. This can be done. What I'm miss...

Re: Print specific pages

Hi Adrian, sorry for not being clear in my post; yes, that option is supplied by Word and it will not be available in NWP unless it is included as a new feature. As for the macro, I didn't find any existing macro for a print task to take as a starting point and, honestly, starting from scratch is ab...
