list of discontinuous selections

Post by js » 2007-04-13 02:53:38

I had a recurring problem with macros in NWE, but I am not sure whether there is a solution with that in Pro macros. It‘s really very simple: Let‘s say you got a text from the internet with some keywords words marked in italics, and you would like to have a list of them. Easy job with Nisus macros to select them all at once. But how to get on from there?

I read in the manual, under the command _Write selection_: In the future we may support replacing a discontinuous selection with a list variable.
Is this a plan to solve my problem? Is there another way to do it?

PS
May I repeat my earlier question: Are there sample macros, as indicated in the manual?
And thanks for your help. And a big bravo for this new product of Nisus. Never saw anything running as smooth as Nisus Pro. A real pleasure to use.

You can collect all the selected bits on the clipboard. Is that what you want?
Assuming you want the bits separated by returns the following will work:

Find and Replace '.+', '\0\n', 'aEs'
Copy
Undo

There are not yet macros shipping especially for Nisus Writer Pro.
