Re: how move items up / down a list?

Hi. In what way has it not worked well? I'm not aware of anything having changed in NWP 3.0 that would affect the functioning. So if you could let me know how the outcome of the macro is different from what you expect…

Re: Different headers/Different footers

Hello Armando, and welcome to Nisus. You are correct. If you want to have one header run from page 1 - 20, and then a different header from page 21 - 40, then you will need to insert a section break at the bottom of page 20. This will give you a new section and those buttons will become active. A si...

Re: PDF Page Numbering Retention

With all due respect, Adrian, your "cure" sounds worse than the disease. I would have thought that Guru would want to index and generate the index from his rtf original, not try to painfully restore the pagination from the pdf sent to them by their editor. Surely the editor's pdf is just for referen...

Re: PDF Page Numbering Retention

Let me get this straight, you are talking about a pdf that was generated by someone else (using Word or other) from your original file, and you want to know if there are any deviations in pagination? There is obviously no built-in command in Nisus (or any other program) to synch pagination with a pd...

Re: Changing default margins

You should change the margins in your Nisus New File. Look in Preferences > New File > Advanced and open the file for editing.

Re: Selecting all tables

The Formatting Examiner Palette sure has a lot of superpowers 8) But I'm not sure that this will work for what Kadah is trying to do, though it may depend on the formatting. Here is a simple macro solution which will select just the tables, i.e., all table cells. $doc = Document.active $doc.setSelec...

Re: Really really strange behavior editing PowerFind Pro string

I'd like to reconfirm that I know this problem, and have seen it many times, though not recently. When it starts, it is very annoying, and it's not possible to get rid of it easily. It is very confusing, but ultimately simple: the insertion point in the Find dialog is "off by 1". This makes it very ...

Re: Really really strange behavior editing PowerFind Pro string

I can confirm that I have seen this behavior as well. When this starts to happen, the cursor appears to be one character to the right of where the insertion point actually is. The only way to edit the find expression is to move the cursor with the cursor keys and keep the offset in mind. I'm really ...

Re: unwanted changes

Reading this I am suddenly wondering whether artful really wanted to insert so many section breaks. Perhaps the trouble with headers/footers stems from having used Section breaks where there really only should be page breaks?

Why are you using section breaks?

Re: How to calculate a date

As far as I know, Nisus Macro language is still case sensitive, so you'll need to write: $today = Date.now To get the next day you have basically two methods, simpler: $nextDay = $today.dateByAddingSeconds 86400 …and fancier: $y = $today.year $m = $today.month $d = $today.day + 1 $nextDay = Date.new...

Re: Template not showing in Document Manager

Actually checking some more, I now see that the Templates group in the Document Manager has an "Add Files to Group" command (using the control key). My set-up is actually that I have the "Nisus New File", "Macro Template" and the "Plain Text Template" in a folder on my Dropbox. And presumably I have...

Re: Template not showing in Document Manager

I don't know that "expected" is the word I would use, but you have hit on the problem I was trying to describe above. It seems that Nisus only allows templates to be picked up by the Document Manager via the "Save (As)…" method, which in turn means that your synchronized macs won't/can't pick them u...

Re: How to create new file using a template

I'm not sure what your question is. Using "New $templatePath" is the way to do this. What else are you looking for?

Re: Template not showing in Document Manager

Yeah, that't the wrong way to go about it. But I totally understand. I tried the same and couldn't get it to work. I think you'll have to remove that one by hand. Instead use the "Save in Document Manager > Templates" command directly to create the template and save it. I must say however that I thi...
