adding colours to highlight menu

I can't find anything in the manual - how do I add a colour to the Format>Highlight menu (or change one that's there, eg "Highlight Colour #1")?

Thx

Iain.

Re: Adding a bibliography after the endnotes

Thanks Hamid.

And if I send it off as an rtf to someone who then opens it with Word?

Re: Adding a bibliography after the endnotes

A little slow, perhaps, but a follow up to this - is this formatting maintained in Word? ie, if I put my notes at the end of the section and the bibliography after it, will this still be the case if someone opens the document in Word and (yikes!) perhaps even saves it as a .doc file?

But I've got another. Am I missing something here? (Sent via feedback).

Re: blank space at foot of page

Thanks Martin, I hadn't spotted the footnote. :oops: I guess I need glasses.

blank space at foot of page

I'm getting chunks of blank space at the bottom of several pages in a document opened in NWP but created in Word (presumably - it was a doc file). I've fiddled with all sorts of thing - setting spacings to 1 line and before and after at 0, got rid of the widows/orphan options, but no good. Doesn't m...

Re: WORD DOCS OPEN IN NISUS!

I just tell my friends not to bother sending me Word files. :)

But seriously, zamzar does a pretty good job with the .docx files.

Re: WORD DOCS OPEN IN NISUS!

Perhaps I misunderstood the OP: does "correct this" mean "get the documents to open in Nisus" or "get the documents to open in Word"?

I assumed (given the forum) the former - if the latter, can't help. Sorry. :)

Re: WORD DOCS OPEN IN NISUS!

Much as I love NWP, I have to say it still can't deal with Word docs (.docx - if you're having problems with .doc files you may have other issues) properly, esp. if there are tables or whatever. Try opening from the File>open, otherwise send it off to http://www.zamzar.com/ and let them do it for you.

Re: Spellcheck reverts to US English

Of course, it's not doing it any more... :)

I must have added the word to the US dictionary. Do you still want the doc? Is there any way of editing the dictionary to remove the offending word?

Re: Spellcheck reverts to US English

I think so...

In the languages panel I have "English (Australia)" selected in the left menu and I have spelling "Australian English" - is that it?

Spellcheck reverts to US English

A bit baffled here - and I've read the previous discussions on the topic and they don't seem to help. I use Australian English, settings in preferences are AU, my NWP icon in the bottom right is AU, my Apple keyboard icon is AU, etc. I'm spellchecking a document using Australian English dictionary, ...

tracking changes

Someone has sent me a document that they'd like me to revise (I mean really, as if it wasn't already perfect :D ) with tracking changes activated. This is gates-speak, I believe: can NWP do something similar? I can't find anything in the manual...

Thanks.
