Re: NOT numbering blank lines?

I'm using NWP to write programming manuals, and there are languages, like Python, that do require blank lines as part of the syntax: obviously, changing the AB spacing is not an option, since those blank lines have to be numbered like the rest.

Re: images and html rendition

I'm not sure how many people use such a feature Probably the people who, like me, have to compensate for Nisus' pdf-rendition shortcomings, as mentionned earlier in this thread. I don't mean to be aggressive, nor offensive, but it's such a pain on the user's side that these problems have to be solv...

Re: images and html rendition

iCab, Omniweb and Safari all use Apple's web kit and can display pdf images hyperlinked with standard img tags.

Camino and Opera can't: they're based on Netscape API.

Re: images and html rendition

Again: if anyone had a suggestion for a linux browser that can display embedded pdf graphics, I'd gladly pass it on to my students.

Re: images and html rendition

Will the hard working Nisus bods [...] solve this one? Yes, of course: that would obviously be a radical cure, eschewing the need for html rendition. If Acrobat can do it, anybody could do the same. The proof is in the pudding: NeoOffice does it by default... As you said, it's probably not rocket s...

Re: images and html rendition

Ah, greenmorpher, thank you for your reflections, but how convoluted your suggestion is... Look: it implies my Nisus documents would then link or contain bitmap images instead of vector graphics, and that rendering the documents to pdf would indeed yield embedded bitmapped graphics — which, for a nu...

Re: index using word list

Neat, Hamid: this tip definitely solves my problem! The documentation is rather terse on that particular subject.

Re: images and html rendition

Thanks; greenmorpher: I could have asked the OmniGroup first — but I'm afraid they cannot cope with such a request, precisely because OmniGraffle needs a pdf data structure to linkback while preserving the ability to edit those distinct objects that make up the graph. So, while I'm happy with that s...

Re: index using word list

Thanks, Hamid, but even if I built such a concordance table by hand — and of course, I did — it wouldn't solve the basic problem: how do I use that data to invoke the index as menu command? The best solution would indeed be an extension of the index using word list command that would work as the ind...

index using word list

I need to index a number of Nisus documents, using the index as scheme, where the words to be indexed are variants of some French words, like homogène , homogénéité , hétérogène , hétérogénéité , along with their plural form and their capitalized form as well, and sometimes their masculine and femin...

images and html rendition

In my Nisus documents, most of my images are linked back to OmniGraffle. The problem is those images are converted to pdf when rendering the document as html : unfortunately, outside the Macintosh world, no browser that I know of can display pdf images inside html documents, and none of my clients u...

rendering to html

I just spent several hours fixing the html rendered from my Nisus document: bulletted or numbered lists: left margin of subsequent lines of paragraph items doesn't honor initial offset from bullet — the text-indent value is never right and conflicts with some of the margin values graphics: they get ...

page numbers on left in ToCs

Is there a way I can alter the ToC styles so I get the page number first, then the heading text, instead of the other way around? When editing a ToC style there's no way to insert the page number into the line; at least, not from any menu: there's a number, 24, that can be selected and moved to the ...
