Re: check active doc

Thanks for taking time to help Philip. What I actually wrote (here replacing actual home and actual doc name for “home” and “myDoc”) was this: $docPath = "User/home/Documents/myDoc.rtf" $actDoc = Document.active $actDocPath = $actDoc.filePath if $actDocPath != $docPath Document.open $docPath else ex...

Re: check active doc

Thank you Philip I tried to consider what you kindly explained. But now if the macro attempts to open myDoc to compare it with the active doc, Nisus answers with a message I don't understand: Could not access the file "Users/home/Documents/myDoc" because _the file does not exist: ~/Library/Container...

check active doc

I would like to check if the actually open doc is "~/Documents/mydoc". And if not do suchandsuch. Unfortunately I don‘t know how to solve this simple task. What is wrong with: $docPath = "~/Documents/mydoc" $actDoc = Document.active $actDocPath = $actDoc.filePath if ! $actDocPath = $docPath Document...

paragraph style as a condition

This works fine like so: Document.open "~/Documents/myfile" $doc = Document.active $sel = $doc.textSelection $parStyle = $sel.paragraphStyle prompt $parStyle Now let‘s say the prompt says Paragraph Style "Normal" How mu...

Re: permissions to open files in macros

Something had gone wrong in a first attempt with migrating my macros back to the Documents/Nisus Folder. I could correct that manually and most macros under 2.1.1. now work as expected. Sorry for the earlier message.

Re: permissions to open files in macros

This does not work with me so far. After first downloading and opening 2.1.1 the macros were not loaded. After showing them the original place in the Library / Application support the were loaded after putting and reopening, but without the shortcuts. After manually using a macro the shortcuts for a...

My Nisus mess is quite complete now

My Nisus mess is quite complete now. The individual steps were these: 1. Discovered that what Manage Macro File Access says about File Access to me as a user is completely irrelevant. The only means to be sure to NOT be constantly annoyed by inaccessible files is to add to each and every macro that ...

Re: permissions to open files in macros

Martin, I though I had understood, but it looks as if I didn‘t. To put it short: After following your instructions the Menu „Manage Macro file access“ indicates that Nisus „has stored access to the following list“ followed by „/Users/HOME/Documents“. Does this mean that I, the owner of my software, ...

Re: permissions to open files in macros

Using Nisus I rely on about 400 macros. About half of them uses the open file command. If I understood you well your were telling me to do this: • If one of those 50 percent of my macros does not work, open it. Manually copy the line open „path“ with the command File.requireAccessAtPath in front of ...

permissions to open files in macros

Great and welcome update, thank you.
Unfortunately a number of my macros don't work any more. The worst problem is those that open files within the macros.
It's the permissions. But how to change permission so that Nisus can get access?

Re: Long Documents that Self-Destruct

If the main reason for slow-down is the footnotes: How about taking the footnotes out with a macro, indicating their place with a marker. Then edit the text and the footnotes in separate documents until you are ready for printing, and in a final step placing the footnotes back with a second macro. B...

Re: CJK and roman script font pairing

You can switch languages quickly by assigning each language a custom keyboard command, eg: Command + DE switches to German, Command + CN switches to Chinese, etc. Once you have your language preferences configured as desired, activating the language via its shortcut can also switch the keyboard lay...
