Getting paths of files slected in the Document Manager

Is there anyway to get the file path of a selected item in the document manager. I love the document manager and want to try to create a macro that will delete or move files with a keyboard short cut when I'm browsing in the document manager window.

Thanks
Lou

Re: How to apply color properties

Thank you all for your replies. After some tooling around, my solution distilled down to some very simple steps which uses the :Format:Text Color command.

How to apply color properties

Sorry to bother, but the Macro Reference is a little light on examples and I'm not a programmer. If I have a variable $value and I want to make all the text in that variable black, how to I apply the Color.black command.

Thank you

How do I get this Blog converter in the permanent collection

I figured out how to use NWP for all my writing now. I have a macro that converts bold, italic and bullet lists to HTML format for blogs. It puts RED text between blockquote tags and stops and prompts you for a URL at every section of BLUE text converting it to a link. Copies the whole thing to the ...

Re: I think I found a bug

Hi Martin,

I followed your post to the letter and the macro still did not find the gray color. I also re-did phspaelti's method and got the same result as he did.

I think I found a bug

When I type the follwing on my macro

Find All ‘.+’, 'EuaW'

And use any of the Gray colors for the attribute, it fails to find it. All the other colors are fine and it works in the Find window, juts not in a macro.

Re: Please help me decide

Hi there. I'm speaking from the experience of almost nine months of trying out different writing software used almost daily to write magazine articles, blog posts and a second book.

Holy [CENSORED], was the reaction I had to active thesaurus spell checker. That was after only my first five minutes of using Nisus. Found a little reproducible bug with the full screen mode. If I write in full screen mode, then ESC to Draft Mode and do a little more typing, then go back to Full Scr...
