Hi again - 1) just found a NWX posting concerning non-breaking hyphen entered via macro - what about entering soft hyphen this way too? I did customize my keyboard with SIL's Ukelele directly... 2) soft hyphen displays an uggly en-dash wherever entered, and when actually breaking the line a hyphen g...

I really don't know about MS formats - but Word seems to save as: 1) WIN Word 97 -> 2003 and MAC Word 98 -> 2004 as RTF 2) Win/Mac? Word 4 -> 6/95 as compatible RTF, i.e. an older RTF 3) WIN Word 2007 & Mac Word 2008 as DOCX, i.e. a still newer RTF ...as far as I know. I wonder how to open 2) - text...

topic: softhyphen

Hi again - I still wonder about the "how-to" of softhyphen [SHY] under Unicode. Are there apps still doing the job? And how? - any app doing it, though using the OS X text engine? The Unicode Technical Report #14 has this: "The action of a hyphenation algorithm is equivalent to the insertion of a [s...

Hi - looks like the SoftHyphen is definitely dead with Unicode - I just added one to my font and created a keyboard shortcut as well, i.e. I definitely can enter a SoftHyphen, and UnicodeChecker indeed finds a SoftHyphen - but the text engine knows better: instead of my zero-width SoftHyphen I get a...

Hi Derick - just tried for myself: 1) multiple Columns & single Row Table with Text pre-styled 2) setting up the precise width for each column once and for all 3) then Copy and Paste this Master Table for each set via 4) special Clipboard or maybe Macro would do for a start. But you are right, speci...

multiple wrapped sets?

It's a table thing you are looking for - to wrapp side heads - isn't it?

A friend of mine who is documentary asked me for this feature once: to handle two or even more columns - with synchronized headings for each set.

Does anyone know how to? - anyone actually doing it already? Stylish? ToC?

Martin again - I sent screenshots via Feedback to look for yourself. The display/redraw problem must be connected with the cursor differing in multiple/fixed line spacing mode. It is just because of the cursor missing the descent area in fixed line spacing for some reason, that the descender of my P...

Well Martin you are right with Tiger Futura -

but the problem is with all state of art Monotype PS fonts I am using, so may be that's why... MT Joanna, MT Gill Sans, MT Perpetua all behave the way I described - best to be viewed enlarged: 60pt/75pt fixed line spacing: g-j-p-q-y-d-d-d

Well -

it is actually difficult to know about LinkBack even from the very Nisus site - I can't seem to find any open link to the project, besides diggin' Forum, Blogs or News archives...

...fixed line display bug

Again - 1) with line spacing there are 2 options: multiple and fixed - 2) the cursor behaves different as do the characters displayed: 3) cursor height in multiple mode: descent+ascent+/-leading 4) cursor height in fixed mode: ascent+/-leading only, that's why 5) letters with lower descent get cut o...

Hi -
here it goes, new license constellation: Nisus Pro running on Tiger run LaCie Mobile Drive USB 20 GB. I.e. I just take this small drive with me and can usurp any Intel Mac around. I will check the practicability next - but it works great right now here at home - quod erat demonstrandum!
