This is just a trick on how to make use of one of Nisus’ finest facilities: The small formatting buttons on the lower bar of each window.
Let's say you wanted a list of all lines (paragraphs) of a text containing a particular word, or number, or chunk of text written in a particular format. Certainly, you can write a find expression searching for the whole paragraphs. But there is an easier way to achieve the same result, like so:
1. Do an ordinary "find all" for the word or format you are looking for.
2. Insert a tab on any part of the ruler where you would normally not insert a tab, f.e. near the end of the line.
3. You fill find that a ruler symbol now shows on the lower bar. Click on it for a "select all" and copy / paste into a new window. (If you don’t like the inserted tab: select all and take it away).
