Sort bug in glossary files

Post by credneb » 2019-11-18 10:29:27

Since upgrading to NWP 3.04, sorting a block of text in a glossary file (using the Edit:Transform Paragraphs:Ascending command, both from the menu and thru a macro) results in a superfluous New Line character being inserted after every Glossary Entry Break character.

Is this a bug or an unintended 'new feature''?

This is definitely not a feature. We'll get this bug fixed, sorry for the nuisance!

In case you need a workaround, you can use find/replace to remove the errant newlines. Here's a find pattern that will match the unwanted newlines:

Code: Select all

(?<=\f)\n
You can leave the replace expression empty to just deleted the found newlines. I hope that helps.
