Re: Create array from word list?

Note that the result of this command will be an array of TextSelection objects. You can get the actual selected text from such an object using the property 'substring'. And you can do this for a whole array of such objects using the command with the elegant :P name 'arrayByMakingValuesDoCommand'. T...

Re: Anti-aliasing

Nisus Writer uses a heavily modified version of the macOS text layout engine. This is provided by Apple as part of the system and ultimately it handles fundamental aspects of text display on screen. Microsoft Word and Apple Pages likely use different layout engines. I believe Pages uses WebKit, the ...

Re: How to create a variable for "Any digit"?

A foreign ambassador to Germany visits the German Chancellor Bismarck. Bismarck gives a speech. He speaks loud and is obviously full of emotion. The interpreter remains silent. After five minutes the ambassador whispers to the interpreter: "What's he saying?" The interpreter leans towards to the am...

Re: Choice of colour for StrikeThrough, &c

The very simplest way to highlight your editing changes is to turn on tracked changes . This is an all encompassing feature that tracks text deletions, additions, and replacements, as well as any formatting changes. You'll see each change automatically marked on screen using the current author's col...

Re: How to create a variable for "Any digit"?

I need to find out whether the character that precedes the insertion point is a number or not. In case it's a number, the macro will do some stuff. In case it's not, the macro will do some other stuff. How can I do that? I tried $theFoundCharacter = Find @Text<\X>, 'rE' I think we're a bit beyond t...

Re: How to create a variable for "Any digit"?

I tried this, and although a number was found, it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong this time? $number = Find @Text<\X>, 'E' if $number == "1||2||3||4||5||6||7||8||9||0" prompt "It's a number!!" end The double pipe "or" operator is covered only briefly in the Nisus Writer macro language reference...

Re: How to create a variable for "Any digit"?

$searchRange = Range.new(0, $selection.location) $foundSelection = $selection.text.find('\d+', 'Er', $searchRange ) That's been one of those features that I have been looking for for some time now. Seems it was introduced in NW 3.0 but it slipped by me for some reason. :drunk: I'm glad you'll get s...

Re: How to create a variable for "Any digit"?

There are many ways to skin this cat 🙀 I'd probably want to ask myself: how can I leverage the power of regular expressions (regex). Philip already provided a nice solution that lets you use \d to match any digit. However, I'd prefer to generalize this so your code doesn't have to care about the len...

Re: Table header repeating on multiple pages

I'm afraid not. There is currently no way to automatically repeat table headers on each page. You'll need to manually repeat such table rows, sorry!

I'm sorry to say that our Spanish translator won't be able to finish the job of updating the Spanish interface for Nisus Writer Pro 3. If you (or anyone else) would like to help us finish updating the Spanish localization please let me know. We'd love to restore it for our Spanish users.

Re: NWP 3 High CPU useage File Converter

I'm sorry that the Nisus File Converter is using high CPU on your Mac. That's a bug in Nisus Writer that we're tracking down. We'll need to fix it for a software update. In the meantime you can simply "force quit" the converter. That's completely safe and Nisus Writer will restart it automatically i...

Re: No License key for App Store, so how to I get out of demo mode?

Hi just bought Pro after using the Demo. When I clicked on startup to register, it told me that people who bought on the app store (for 8000 yen) don't have licenses. That it is linked to my account. But it seems the message to register still pops up. What is the solution? Thanks If you purchased N...

Re: Auto-fix option for double-caps

Nisus Writer has such an option (in our QuickFix preferences), but only for text that occurs at the start of a sentence. I can see how this correction might be useful elsewhere. Thanks for the suggestion.
