rangeOfAttributesAtIndex

Hello, In Nisus Macro Reference, I find in the explanation for "text.rangeOfAttributesAtIndex" a sentence saying: This range is not necessarily the longest (maximal) range over which attributes are equal, eg: text adjacent to the returned range could have the same attributes. What does this mean in ...

Hello, When installing 1.1 Beta, it asked whether I wanted to allow changes to the macros. I naturally said "no" -- this was a beta after all. A second installation did not offer the option. You said you would try to get this fix to happen with 1.1 when it came out. Did it happen? No dialog came up....

Hello Kino and Martin, Thanks for your replies and your consideration. I too am very much surprised and impressed by the richness of the new commands introduced in NW Pro 1.1. beta; the documentation is still to be improved, but it has the essential. I think we, users, should also work to make some ...

Re: Perl output messed up

Hello Kino, Thank you for your reply. That is not a NW Pro problem but what you always get even from a script run in Terminal, when backticks are used to receive something from an external program. As perl does not know the encoding of the output, the UTF-8 flag is not turned on automatically. I don...

Hello Martin, Thank you for your reply. This is exactly how embedded perl blocks work. However, it is necessary for the correct functioning of the NWP macro system, which requires that the perl output be encoded using UTF-8. .... Honestly I would consider this a bug in perl. The identity of the char...

Perl output messed up

Hello,

I want to write a macro like the following:

Code: Select all

$res = ""
Begin Perl
   $res = `/usr/bin/perl ~/Desktop/myPerlScript.pl`;
End

New
Insert Text $res
If the perl script "~/Desktop/myPerlScript.pl" has a code like the following:

Code: Select all

#!/usr/bin/perl
binmode (STDOUT, ":utf8");
print "あいうえお";
the result will be a mess (something like "ãÂ￾‚ãÂ￾„ãÂ￾†ãÂ￾ˆãÂ￾Š").

Even if I remove the line 'binmode (STDOUT, ":utf8")', I get an even worse result.

How can I get the expected result?

Thank you in advance.

Hello Martin, I tried to write a conversion map for the font "Norman" using your "NSAramian to Unicode.nwm" as template. It seems to work more or less -- I have not yet checked the result very closely. Anyway, I will re-write this macro when you will update the command "transliterateInRange", and th...

Hello Martin, I am trying to make a mapping table for a transliteration font for East Asian languages, but found a problem: that is, there are many glyphs that can be only obtained using combining characters. For example, U+0072 + U+0325 + U+0304, etc. I think with the new "$text.transliterateInRang...

Yes, the new macro Attributes object should provide useful. It is however not complete- there is still formatting information that needs to be made available. If there's any particular piece of information you find more critical than another, let us know so we can prioritize it for future enhanceme...

Hello capvideo, Although I have not yet tried or understood your scripts, I am very impressed by them. They seem really very good. I will try them, and try to study them. You write in your web page: it’d be a whole lot nicer (and likely more reliable) if I could get the style names directly from Nis...
