Re: Mavericks

Yeah, Nisus really doesn't run on Mavericks at all for me. It crashes or hangs constantly, usually on startup, sometimes a little after. Not unexpected, but it does make RTF editing on my test machine a little bit of a hassle. (Ironically, MS Word also crashes on Mavericks. Pages is the only stable ...

Re: Mavericks

I've got no expectations that anything should work with Mavericks at this early juncture, but definitely having issues with Nisus. It seemed to work fine at first, but now it hangs a few moments after opening and I have to force quit. Standard troubleshooting—restarts, reinstalls, cache clearing, et...

Heather, that may very well be true. In fact, it sounds plausible. And - if somebody from Nisus had volunteered to say exactly that, it would have been such a huge way to garner goodwill. I would have instantly bought the upgrade as a way of supporting a company that treats its customers with openne...

It feels dodgier and dodgier to me, on thinking about it. By timing the upgrade to coincide with the release of the new OS, Nisus has compounded the problem - and made me feel that they care little for existing customers. Anyone who uses Nisus and upgrades to Leopard finds, automatically, that their...

all well and good, but my copy of nisus is dead in leopard. I'm not really being given a choice to stay in 2.7 (unless I "choose" to keep my entire system in a monolithic state.) There's a level of calculation in all the versions and pricing. The other wp programs for mac don't compare; the ms offic...

agreed

I find it incredibly annoying to be asked to pay $30 for what is basically a compatibility upgrade. It feels - I'm not saying this is true, but this is how it feels - that Nisus is simply trying to take advantage of the situation by forcing an upgrade. I also find the two different versions of Nisus...

Wow, Geoff - thanks for the very detailed and informative reply. I will try your method. I assume this applies to Express; do you think Pro- which has a new table of contents feature - would add any additional capabilties?

thanks again,

dan

I dunno...

To each his own, I suppose if you need the features that Pro offers, it is worth the money. I don't, so $45 feels ultra-steep for an upgrade. But my real question is why no outlining? This has been a requested feature for something like ten years!!!! Is there a specific reason this never show up? ot...

Duh!

Of course, you're right! Even my original post noted that Word files created in Word but edited in Nisus get indexed. That's what I get for trying to make any public statements on a Monday morning. The only hassle - and a minor one - is that I'll be renaming my attachments with the "DOC" extension a...

True enough, using RTF is a workaround - but only a partial one, because in my work, I don't just need to index files that I've created, but ones others send to me - sometimes in great quantities - to edit. And changing them to RTF, while possible, seems like a true kludge. Can anyone from Nisus res...

Not sure I'm reading your post right, dshan, but I'm not certain - if I am - that that's the core of the problem. I just created a standard Nisus document, saved as an RTF on my desktop. I then duplicated the document in the Finder, giving it a DOC extension. Spotlight found the first - but not the ...

Robert, are you creating files in Nisus and saving them as genuine Word docs - or are you saving them as Nisus or RTF files? The bug only appears with the former option.

Well, that's some excellent detective work - I hope that this is leading to a solution. I produce over 2,000 word processing documents a year, and I have to be able to do a Spotlight style search...I've been finding Nisus such a pleasure to use - but since I purchased it, most of the documents I've ...

I find the non-Spotlight functionality rather odd, since the features page for 2.7 states that Nisus is "spotlight aware." That seems a little imprecise; does "aware" mean that Spotlight indexes Nisus, or something else?

Why won't spotlight index nisus?

Hi - I am running 2.7 and am having a real problem: Spotlight will not index any files I've created in Nisus and saved in .doc format. If I create the file in Word and edit it in Nisus, there's no problem. Not having Spotlight indexing is a real deal-breaker for me. Is anyone else having this proble...
