Keep on Same Line

Post by Brooke6 » 2007-08-21 15:26:22

I have just upgraded from Nisus Writer 6.5 (Classic) to NWP.

One feature that I already miss terribly is the formatting style "Keep on Same Line." You could select a few words in a row, and apply that style; then, no matter how you went on to edit the paragraph around that text, those words would stay together on the same line.

Are their any known workarounds for this missing feature? Would anybody else hope to see it in a future release?

I'll also ask in the Macro forum if anybody can conceive of a macro solution, though I tend to doubt it.

The only work around I can see is to use non-breaking spaces instead of normal spaces. The problem is of course that this doesn't cover all the reasons a line break could occur (eg: hyphenation or tabs) but might be good enough depending on your use.

As for a macro, you could use this:

Code: Select all

Find and Replace “\u0020”, “\u00A0”, ‘as’
It replaces all normal spaces in the current selection with non-breaking spaces.
