How to get the file path of a converted file

Post by Nobumi Iyanaga » 2011-07-11 22:12:28

Hello,

How would it be possible to get the file path of a file (for example a Classic Nisus Writer file, or a .doc file) which is "temporarily" open as "xxx (converted)".

In fact, I already asked this question to the Nisus mailing list, and I was answered that there is no command for that, and there is no temporary file created for the converted document (so all is done in RAM).

In that case, I think this is impossible for now; but there may be situations in which such an information is needed (for example, I want to save the content of a converted file as a Unicode text file). So this is rather a feature request now.

Thank you very much in advance.
Best regards,

Hello Martin,

I had not received any reply to this request, but I discovered that in the new 2.0.1 public beta 1, the feature is already implemented:

* Added: macros: added Document object property convertedFilePath.

Thank you very much! You are really very smart!
Best regards,

You're too kind Nobumi. This enhancement was quite easy to add- about as quick as filing it away in our database for later, so we just added it! Glad you found it.
