Re: Typewriter Scrolling

Hi Todd: thanks for your post. After experimenting I believe I understand what you're saying. It sounds like typewriter scrolling is autoscrolling the line you're editing to the desired vertical position, but a bit early. I observed this effect only in Page View. As you said, typewriter scrolling se...

Re: Normal to Body Text

Philip has some good advice here, as usual. One tip regarding this point: You can go through them in turn, or use the macro language to create a non-contiguous selection for these paragraphs. Although a macro could apply and fix styles paragraph by paragraph, working its way through the document, it...

Re: Find/Replace Dialog

Thanks for fixing the image. I think you just missed the "Place Inline" button that appears next to any attachments you upload while creating a post. That inserts the proper phpBB tags, which is the reliable way of showing an attached image inline, instead of manually managed [IMG] tags. I edited yo...

Re: Find/Replace Dialog

Thanks for your additional thoughts on this potential enhancement Adrian. One thing that didn't come through: your mockup screenshot does not show. It looks like you added the image as a forum attachment, so I'm not sure where the problem lies. You might try posting it again. One quick clarification...

How do I change the default window size and position?

Depending on your computer monitor you may want to customize how the default document window appears on screen. Nisus Writer lets you choose both the size and position of the default document window. Whenever you create a new document in Nisus Writer a template file is loaded. The settings in the te...

Re: More white space between body and footnote

To increase the whitespace between your main body text and footnote area you'll want to adjust your document's Footnote style. Specifically you want to increase the note gutter height. Here's what you should do: 1. Switch to your document's stylesheet, eg: using the menu View > Style Sheet . 2. From...

Re: Find/Replace Dialog

Thanks for the request Adrian. It certainly seems like a decent idea, at least as an additional optional way to access the find system, for those who might want it. The trick here is making sure this hypothetical new find palette includes enough options and controls to be useful (eg: buttons for Fin...

Re: In NW 3.0.2 callout rounded speech box becomes text box after save & quit

This indeed appears to be a new bug introduced by version 3.0.2. I'm sorry for the trouble. We'll investigate and hopefully have a fix ready for the next software update. In the meantime I don't think there's a good way to workaround the problem, aside from reverting to the prior app version. If you...

Re: Variable substitution

Depending on what you're doing, you might also check out custom document properties, which can act like variables. They are simpler than macros (though of course are also more limited). You can view and edit custom properties using the menu File > Properties . Once you've established some properties...

Re: Localizations

Hello Stefan: I'm sorry that non-English localizations haven't been restored to Nisus Writer version 3 yet. I know this is a critical issue for some of our users and it's definitely something we plan to fix. It certainly won't take us years. I'd estimate that you can expect to see localizations rest...

Re: Date Format Not Obeyed

Thanks for letting us know Al, this is indeed a bug. Nisus Writer isn't picking up the system date & time formats correctly. We'll have to get this fixed for the next update, sorry about that! In the meantime, if you often need to insert custom date/time stamps, you might consider using a macro. Her...

Re: file icons aren't in Finder, but are in GetInfo

It sounds like you're saying that files saved by Nisus Writer lack a distinctive icon. You were probably expecting to see our app icon inside a standard document icon, which looks like this: docicon.png I assume your files are RTF files with the .rtf file extension, which means the custom Nisus docu...

Re: The file format is not recognized

We already replied to your earlier direct emails, but basically we believe your hard drive or file system may be corrupted. Please run Disk Utility as we suggested and see if it turns up any troubles. Hopefully that will fix your problem with this single file, though if the file is still damaged you...

Re: Annoying behavior in new version of Nisus Pro

If a formatting change is done (for instance, changing the font size or style in a paragraph) the counting begins again, preventing normal scrolling. This can get real annoying and prevents the normal flow of writing and editing. Could you look into this? Nisus Writer Pro 3.0.2 fixes this issue. Pa...
