I want to write in a document, which is full of text (an imported database) and while writing I'd like to let NWP show me, if there is already any text like it. (like Infoclick does, when typing names, adresses or content in the to:, from:, content: fields)

I guess Nisus Writer needs an indexing process for this. Any chances to realize that in the near future?

Or is there any app out there, that does what I need?

Best, Matze

BBEdit text completion uses the current words in the document along with dictionary words and other sources.

I don't know if the text completion could be made to be just the words in the document itself, but with BBEdit usually just about everything can be turned on or off so there is probably a way to do this.

Hi Patrick and thanks for your suggestion.

Is it possible to search for a word, which is highlighted in the completion list?
Or do I have to change to find/replace?

Best, Matze

I'm afraid you would need to change to Find/Replace, it is not possible to just find a word in the completion list like "InfoClick".

Hm, I wish NWP had this auto-complete feature combined with the CMD-doubleclick NWC had, so I could connect it to the find all and show context macro.

Wishful thinking.

But hey, may be a feature request for NWP?

I would like to think and talk about that suggested feature once again.

Nisus has got the preference of autocompleting text.
What is the source of this feature? Nisus Thesaurus?
Could I replace this source by an own textsource (a file)?
Then Nisus would search each word I am writing in that very moment.

Best regards, Matze
