Re: Bulk change of ligature setting in fonts?

If you really want to have a macro go through a whole folder of documents, it's possible to automate that as well. Please let me know if you're interested in such a thing. That may be the best thing to do. Should the macro specify which font? Seems based on the other comment here, that it's not nor...

Re: Bulk change of ligature setting in fonts?

regarding ligatures - you can switch ligatures (if offered by a font) ON/OFF. "Select All" in a document - FORMAT/FONT/SHOW TYPOGRAPHICAL PANEL – de/activate ligatures… But when I do that I get a message saying, "Multiple fonts are currently selected". So it lets me do nothing. Is it that way for y...

Bulk change of ligature setting in fonts?

Background: I installed a new version of a font on my computer. I use this font all the time. Apparently one of the improvements of the new version is that it supports ligatures. I do not want the ligatures; in fact, I should not use them for most of my documents. The bad thing for me is that I've u...

Re: Search help for precise phrase

By the way, the string "open type" doesn't seem to appear in NWP's Help. I tried the quotation marks with "open type" and didn't get anywhere, then being not-so-creative, I decided that it just couldn't find it – not realizing that it really was not there! So it's all my fault. Seems like I've seen...

Search help for precise phrase

This issue is not unique to NWP, but it seems I often want to refer to NWP's help which is in PDF form, and I run into a problem. How can I search in Preview (or any other popular PDF reader) for a precise phrase or for a phrase and a certain word? E.g., I wanted to know if NWP has special treatment...

Keyboard switching anomaly

I have both US and British English listed in my NWP 2.1.1 Preferences > Language settings pane (along with other languages). Both the US and British English ones are set up so that they use the US keyboard (last drop down box at the bottom). The reason I've assigned keyboards is that I want NWP to s...

Re: Table Styles

Hi Paolo: I can well understand the need for this feature [table styles]. It would be super useful, and a natural fit for Nisus Writer. It's something that's been requested before, and is filed as a possible enhancement. I'll add your vote, thank you! +1 for me. I have decided to use InDesign for o...

Re: Autosave

I would be happy if I could turn autosave off, I don't need it. That's a simple solution which does not confuse the users. Just a clickable box in the preferences "autosave off". +1 I think a user option would also be good for this. Because I knew NWP/OS X are now making backups, I didn't do so tod...

Re: White-space issues at bottom of page

Once again, Hamid, thank you indeed. Your answer is very clear and very helpful. I think it could even be added to the User's Guide, because the explanations provided by the User's Guide are a little light on detail concerning this particular point (p. 192). In particular, I was puzzling over the M...

Re: Flush left, center, and flush right on a single line

Welcome to the forums. I think that to do that I'd use tabs and a left justified or fully justified paragraph. Click on the ruler bar at the top to insert a tab. Then click on the tab to open a dialog box. Then you can change it to left, right or centered.

Re: Export NWP styles to InDesign?

Let's just say I'm exceedingly embarrassed! :) Oh, well. I even searched the forums thinking I'd asked that before, but didn't see it. Well, maybe it wasn't the Nisus forums! :)
