Me again, just thought I'd summarize the process, FYI: 1. Received a "doc" file, couldn't open it with NWE. 2. Friend saved it as an rtf and sent again. 2. Opened it with NWE, but still couldn't find the problem - the invisibles didn't appear when switched on but, looking at it again now, I see ther...

Wasn't there a "remove gremlins" facility in Classic? Or I am thinking of some other piece of software?

Re: Removing invisibles

You actually should be able to copy-paste one of these gremlins to the Find window. I know you won't believe this, but it didn't work the first time I tried... honest! (But I have done a bit of format switching and save-as-text since I received it.) Convert > To Unicode Code Points. U+0000. Now tha...

Removing invisibles

A friend has sent me a Microsot Word document (I know, I told him) which has some serious problems. It took me forever to open, is 1.7Mb, has 400,000 characters and 163,000 words and runs to 70 pages. Hmm. I turned on invisibles and it appears every second character is something I haven't seen befor...

copy and paste to find

I frequently have trouble copying from a doc to the find dialogue box when I want to remove hidden characters from a document. At the moment, for example, I have a document that was emailed to me as text with hidden carriage returns of some sort. I want to remove these, but when I copy the relevant ...

spellcheck gripe

In the old NW Classic when doing a spell check (or indeed a Find), the dialog box moved and/or text scrolled when a word was highlighted so that it could be seen. It would be nice if that could come back, it's very tiring constantly shifting the dialog box around the screen to see what's been found/...

Footnote divider

In NW classic I seem to recall that it was possible to set the distance between the horizontal line above the footnotes and the text above. Is this no longer possible? I have some text that is pretty much sitting on the line and it looks terrible.

Endnotes

Thanks for the suggestion but... When I clicked on "endnote" in the lime green whatever, all my footnotes disappeared completely and permanently and without trace. No sign of them at all, no endnotes, nothing. Even "undo" doesn't bring them back. Fortunately I have a backup... do you think rmark is ...

Footnotes to endnotes

I can't find any instructions in online help or the user manual on how to change footnotes to endnotes. I've written an article and included quite a number of footnotes - the journal now wants me to format them as endnotes instead and I can't see how to change this.

Suggestions? Thanks!

Bug in Arabic script

Does anyone else use Arabic script in NWE 2.1.1? Is this a bug - I can't write a damma over a mim if the mim is the first letter of the word and I'm trying to follow it with another mim. The damma moves onto the second mim. Try writing mumarrida... مُمَرِّضة (Firefox does it ok, but if I cut and pas...

Highlight colour in Find function

Can anyone tell me how to change the highlight colour in the Find function. It's currently set at a drab grey, which makes it very hard to spot on the screen if I'm searching for an apostrophe (for example). I can't find anything in the manual. My default highlight is already set to fluo green, so t...

Keyboard shortcuts

I've had several unsuccessful attempts to change keyboard shortcuts. I also had this from Nisus: "Try this: 1. Choose Style Sheets from the View menu. 2. Select the Normal Style. 3. Select the Shortcut field. 4. Press the Delete key. That should do the trick." But it didn't work either. I've also no...
