Re: How to change default glyph variant

How to change default glyph variant To avoid the necessity of invoking a macro, and even of creating one, you could include the required character in the Special Characters Palette and assign a keyboard shortcut (perhaps Cmd-hyphen) to it via Preferences > Menu Keys > Insert > Special Character > …...

Re: Hoefler text font - soft hyphen is visible when line ker

One thing I noticed is that Hoefler does not have the soft hyphen character; when a soft hyphen is used, it is substituted by Times. Right, mine did that and substituted Lucida Bright, I noticed. Thanks Hamid. I've also noticed that Hoefler letter-spaces in justified lines more than my other fonts ...

Re: Hoefler text font - soft hyphen is visible when line ker

[...]when the soft hyphen falls within a line (ie, not at the end) -- then the soft hyphen is usually visible as a space between the letters. I cannot reproduce this particular problem on the latest Mac OS X with any of the hyphenation settings in NWP; Hoefler text font version I have is 8.0d2e1. H...

Hoefler text font - soft hyphen is visible when line kerns

soft-hyphen-in-Hoefler-text.png Hi, I'm having a problem with Hoefler text font, the system version. I'm using Mac OS 10.6.8. What happens is actually two things: a) the soft hyphen doesn't insert as often as with other fonts -- I often have to add it manually. That's no big deal. But... b) This is...

How to change default glyph variant

Hi, I can't find this in OS X documentation, online, or in this forum, but it seems like it should be simple. Q: Hoefler text (for example) has several glyph variants for many characters. How do I get it to default to a different variant for a given glyph? More detail: Dash, for example. My Hoefler ...

Re: Justification, Tracking, Kerning - available tools?

Thank you adryan and ptram for comments and suggestions. I had already begun a workaround, which seems to solve much of my problem, and which I'll describe at the bottom after addressing your comments. @adryan I should have said that I'm not new at this (used PageMaker, Quark twenty years ago in lay...

Justification, Tracking, Kerning - available tools?

Greetings, I'm a long-time Nisus Pro user and I'm attempting to clean up the justification word and letter spacing -- tracking, kerning -- of a 500 page book of prose before publication. I'm having some trouble getting word and letter spacing to look polished, so before I do the whole book I want to...

Centered graphics become off-center when gutter added?

Hi, Summary: Starting with a book containing some large graphics "Positioned on Page" and left-right centered, then after changing to facing pages and adding a gutter, the graphics do not move and are now off-center relative to the text, which has all shifted because of the gutter (both indents and ...

How To Find Next Instance of Style (not all of them)

Hi, Briefly: Macro "Select by Style" doesn't work for me because it selects all of them. What I need is a way to select the next instance of a style. Why I need this: I've got a 500 page book with Style A sprinkled throughout that is used occasionally. When I 'update by style' from one instance of S...

Re: TOC bug -- rebuilds as all paragraphs, Level 3, on openi

The most obvious idea would be that you are working with styles that are based on each other. So if the first style has an attribute to be included in TOC (level 1) and the other styles are based on that, then of course everything will be TOC level 1. But the way you describe it with turning things...

TOC bug -- rebuilds as all paragraphs, Level 3, on opening

HI, I had made a Level 1 & 2 Outline for navigation, and then noticed today that the Outline now shows every single paragraph in the document (about 500 of them) as a separate level 3 entry -- and everything is at the same level. My level 1 and 2 Outline has disappeared. I tried various things, and ...

Disabling Prevent Hyphenation in Dependent Style Fails

Hi, I'm finding that attempting to toggle 'Prevent Hyphenation' in a dependent style seems inconsistent and buggy. It's complex because of the dependency and hence triple negative situation (I think that's what I'll call it :roll: ), but I find that sometimes it appears to hold onscreen and then doe...

Re: shape moves to previous page on print

Update: Alas, my clue didn't pan out, and cutting down is proving impossible; bug disappears if I cut down by more than a few pages either before or after the shape in question. For example, speaking roughly from memory of the tests I did yesterday, I can get the problem to fix by: --Cutting first t...
