Re: Overstrike possible in Nisus?

Hi Steven - The Mac is no typewriter - I was told in times of old. The up to date way to handle your input is using FORMAT/STRIKETHROUGH in Nisus - then the text stays intact and is searchable - and you can import it to any other application. Give the text a note why you replaced with good reason an...

Re: Multipart selection

Howard -

how about "Apple" instead of "A" - the one next to "Space"…

Re: Overstrike possible in Nisus?

Hi Steven - with Unicode fonts I would definitely prefer entering U+0337 and/or U+0338 after the character concerned. Have a look at Apple's Character Viewer in Unicode View - there you can add both Strike Through Characters to your Favorites - for ease of use later. This is NO layout special as wit...

Re: Overstrike possible in Nisus?

Hi -

not sure understanding you - but try U+0337 or U+0338 after the character: a̷ A̸ This seems even to work right here – but depends on the font used, so try a comprehensive Unicode one…

Re: Urgent! Index in Arabic alphabetical order

Well -

Sorting is a Language feature and should work correct. Nisus Writer depends on Apple's Text Engine for that matter. Adobe is a different beast - isn't it!?

Well -

you are right: sh#! happens! But the "al-"thing is not Nisus' - let Apple know about it. Nisus just uses Apple's text engine…

Re: Urgent! Index in Arabic alphabetical order

Hi -

make sure your list is in Arabic "language" - should show in your "language" menu at the bottom. Not sure about RTL vs LTR writing direction - but RTL should work. Sorry I have no list to try…

Re: Urgent! Index in Arabic alphabetical order

Hi -

not knowing Arabic myself - I would guess: you have to have a list in Arabic Language with paragraphs for each list item. Then apply "Edit/Sort Paragraphs/…" for the selected list items. Sorting is Language specific, that's why Arabic Sorting works in Arabic Language only…

Re: esreveR

Hi Windsor - your screenshot is TOO small in size - but I guess the trouble is with entering "invisible code points" in the first/left column. I did it from "PopChar" - but "Character Viewer" will do as well. Problem is, you have to click in the field of the "Nisus Menu to enter" first and to double...

Re: esreveR

Hi Windsor - Unicode is strictly plain text - for tricks as esreveR you place invisible code points within the text to get the text engine do the job. My screen shot has seemingly EMPTY "boxes" in the first column, but there I entered the invisible code points, so no wonder. In the "boxes" of the se...

Re: esreveR

Hi Windsor - it is more like tagging - enter: Nisus "RLO"Writer"PDF" Pro - then you will get "Nisus retirW Pro". I.e. you enter the "RLO" code point as start tag and the "PDF" code point as end tag and will get the "esreveR" effect displayed between the tags. Hope this helps somehow. HE BTW: one sur...

Re: esreveR

Hi Windsor - here is what I did: 1) In the NWP Menu "Insert/Special Character/Customize Special Characters…" I choose to edit "Group: Writing" 2) Under "Character" I then added from "Character Viewer: Unicode: General Punctuation: 202e + 202c + 202d" each separately and gave each one a "Name" the wa...

Re: esreveR

Hi - "esreveR" is just two Unicode points away - adding "RLO" and "PDF" will do in plain US language… http://elbrecht.com/NISUS_ESREVER_PRO.png I could add Unicode points "RLO" & "PDF" by "Customize Special Characters" under "Insert/Special Character" Even better Nisus could add them under "Insert/D...
