Re: Goodbye Nisus

NIce words and thanks :)

Of course, a Word Processor is just about the worst program to have crash.

Re: Goodbye Nisus

Actually, Word for Mac 2008 is a pretty decent program and does the job does just fine.

Re: Goodbye Nisus

You can't imagine how many lockups/crashes I had with NWP to the point I had autosave set on every 2 minutes which if absurd of course. Even if the problem is a "haxie" of some sort, NWP is the only program of some 100 or more that seemed to be impacted. As I said, I would have liked to say but for ...

Goodbye Nisus

I am sorry to say that after two years of trying to like Nisus, I am jumping ship for (shudder) Microsoft Word for Mac. :( When I first switched to the Mac in June 2006, I experimented with Mellel. Word, and Nisus. The older Word version was intolerable, Mellel was too difficult to use, and while I ...

I understand also and can appreciate the difficulty of dealing with so many configurations. However, as I said, I had installed NWP on a clean install and was having exactly the same problems. Oh well. Another note, since I wrote last, I have encountered some problems although different from earlier...

Ok, after about 10 days of heavy use, not a single crash so I declare this problem resolved. As pleased as I am, it would have been nice for Nisus to have acknowledged that there was a problem which they tried to blame on "Haxies" which reminds me a bit of the old days with a PC when developers trie...

To confirm, after two days of heavy use, not a single crash. I have not had a single hour go by without a crash with the previous version so this is outstanding!

1.01 Seems To Fix Crashing Problem

Sometime ago, I started a thread on the crashing problem I had with NWP. As best as I could figure out, the problem was related to imported RTF documents with a large number of foot/endnotes. At the time, the suggestion was made that I might have had "haxies" that were responsible for the problem. I...

In the end, my choice won't be based on this one experience as I hear from others here that they have had similar experiences with problem documents. Actually, both NWE and Mellel have their strong points. At the moment, I am leaning a bit towards Mellel because although it was a bit confusing at fi...

I should add, however, that this same document does not cause Mellel to crash to it does appear that NEW is more sensitive to whatever the problem is. As I said, I prefer the NWE interface and toolbar but I suspect that Mellel is just more stable. It feels that way anyway.

Thanks for all the feedback which is more support for my theory about the problems with this document. Alas, but it is confidential work so I am not able to send it to the devs, but I will test NWE with a freshly created doc and go from there.

About to give up on NWE

I just finished a two week evaluation of there Mac word processors having had enough of Word. Of the three, I liked NWE the best but there has been one major deal killer which is that NWE repeatedly crashes and that is one thing that a word processor must NEVER do and for obvious reasons. At first, ...
