Index Formatting Issues

Hello, I'm working on creating my first index with Nisus (an index of names) and I'm running into a strange result when the index is inserted and displayed, and I just can't figure out what's going on. Let's say I have a name in the text such as "Saussure", and adjectives such as "saussurien" & "sau...

Re: Strange TOC Behaviour

Thanks, Hamid, for looking into the issue and for replying quickly. I'm using the same version of the font as the one you indicated. So I guess it's just bad luck for me that you can't reproduce the problem. As for me, I can't do anything but reproduce it: on my system, the only way to make the prob...

Strange TOC Behaviour

Hello, Nisus is doing strange, unwanted things when it inserts a Table of Contents in a document I'm working on, and I just can't figure out what's going wrong. Nisus does the following: for certain titles in the TOC it jumps to a new line before inserting the dots and the page number, so that the d...

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 Mu...

Re: White-space issues at bottom of page

Thanks again, Hamid. I didn't think that changing the measurement units in the general Ruler settings would affect the "Multi-page Threshold" measurement units, because the "Paragraph Spacing" measurement units appear in "points" even when the Ruler measurement units are set to cm. Anyway, this is g...

Re: White-space issues at bottom of page

Thanks once again, Þorvarður. That's all very clear. But what about when you say this: III. You can also change the Multi-page Threshold Go to Style Sheet View and select the Note Style "Footnote" in the left column. Change the Multi-page Threshold. If you enter, for example, 35 pt or 1 pt (instead ...

Re: White-space issues at bottom of page

A very big thanks to both Þorvarður and Hamid for taking the time to provide these very detailed, and very helpful, answers! Please know that it's appreciated. I've been following Þorvarður's indications and tweaking some of the settings indicated. I'm currently working with paragraphs with "Fixed" ...

Re: White-space issues at bottom of page

Thanks again, Hamid, for your reply. Indeed, the document you provide shows up as it should on my machine, without extra (and ugly) white space below the body text and above the footnote divider line. I've looked at the document you uploaded, and I can't tell how you made the changes, i.e., how you ...

Re: Footnote formatting issues

In particular this one: The 'free' formatting is easily recognisable as such in the status bar, where is shows up in the form of icons: an [a] for font and other character attributes It helped me find th...

Re: Footnote formatting issues

Thanks, Hamid, for your quick reply. Indeed, the examples in the document you kindly posted, as well as your instructions (especially steps 5–6), fix the issues. I'm new to Nisus (though not to word processors), and I must admit that this idea of formatting attributes which "override" a style, and m...

Footnote formatting issues

Hello, Here's the Issue: I have a question about two specific macros related to fixing problems with footnotes, and why they're not working. To cut a long story short, I learned the hard way that, in Nisus, certain elements present in the style palette for the style called "Footnote"—such as the del...

White-space issues at bottom of page

Hello, I have a question about the way Nisus fills up the page with text—or, rather, the way it sometimes doesn't. I'm working on a document of approximately 150 pages, with lots of footnotes, which are typeset at the bottom of each page. I'm finding that Nisus quite often leaves a lot of white spac...

Re: Using PowerFind

Thanks, Philip and Adrian, for your quick replies, and for your suggestions. They are very helpful. That little Find/Replace dialogue box certainly has a great deal of power. The way the "Find All" button functions, providing the ability to work on all of the selected text at once, is indeed an extr...

Using PowerFind

I have a long typescript in which all the family names have been entered in uppercase letters (eg., Donald DUCK). I have to get all the family names into small capitals (with, of course, the first letter being capitalised). Manually, and taking one name at a time, you can use the menus to (1) Transf...

Re: French typography / Non-breaking spaces

Thanks, Hamid, for taking the time to reply, and for confirming that Nisus does indeed support the automatic insertion of non-breaking spaces with punctuation when typing in French. It seemed to me that Nisus would support this, given the qualities of the program, but it just wasn't clear if it actu...
