Re: Typesetting bug 3.0.1 - all lost on any edit

The operation you described (adding twenty lines) in version 2 should indeed require full repagination of your text in Page View. Even before my earlier reply to you I verified the behavior. I opened a test document that's about 400 pages. Version 2 took some time to paginate the whole thing when op...

Re: Typesetting bug 3.0.1 - all lost on any edit

Thank you for the extra feedback, and for sharing your experience. What you've said can be true, but not always. If you make an edit in version 2 that shifts layout geometry you will still need to wait for complete repagination in Page View to scroll to the end. For example, creating a new paragraph...

Re: URL to show new forum posts

Thanks for posting this. I actually didn't know there was a "new posts" search criteria or bookmarkable URL, but that's quite handy. I'm glad you got it working despite your encounter with those mischievous bugs haha! One potential enhancement is to bookmark the secure "https" URL: https://www.nisus...

Re: Typesetting bug 3.0.1 - all lost on any edit

The short answer is that version 2 did very similar things as version 3, but simply didn't make it as apparent to the user. For instance, the page count would not reset and count back up as typesetting occurred in the background. However, version 2 did ultimately work very similarly. Making an edit ...

Re: Add space after numbers without duplicate spaces

Thanks for the detailed explainer on macros Adrian! I'm a little new to macros. I want to use this in about 50 different documents. Once I create the macro, ow do I copy or export to another document? As Adrian said, macros aren't normally bound to a single document. Rather you just need to save you...

Re: Black Border

Mark's idea of using a shape (box with no fill) will work, but it's going to be awkward if you need to do a lot of these. For starters shapes are not automated. You can't just apply a style to each deceased person's name. You'd have to draw each box manually. Also, although floating shapes can autom...

Re: Old documents in Dock

I have no idea why the dock menu's recent file list is sometimes so wrong. It's all very strange. I can only assume there are some system bugs here, likely related to old recent file lists. Well, maybe now that you somehow cleaned up your recent file list, it will stay fixed. So far mine has remaine...

Re: Old documents in Dock

Thanks to everyone for sharing your experiences and offering to help! I've investigated and the short answer is that I have no idea what's wrong, but there's probably a system bug here. Apple allows apps to add custom commands to the dock menu (eg: Show Document Manager) but it's mostly controlled b...

Re: Old documents in Dock

That is curious, and I'm sorry the list of recent documents is incorrect in the Dock icon's menu. The reason for the stale list of files is almost certainly due to the way Nisus Writer customizes the Open Recent list inside the app itself. There's a variety of reasons we do that, but it shouldn't di...

Re: Version Française French localization

I am a happy user of NWP 3, it is a great upgrade. I have seen only one problem, the table of contents behaves strangely, it doubles up the item numbering. However, that is not my question :-) Thank you for your kind words regarding Nisus Writer Pro version 3! We're happy when our customers are hap...

Re: Changing the default formatting of Comments

Þorvarður's suggested steps won't work because every comment can have its own separate formatting, just as every paragraph in your document can have separate formatting. Even if you manually configure one comment to have the desired formatting, any other new comments you create afterwards will start...

Re: Copy disabled

that NisusWriter, even when choosing "Paste Text Only," grabs the formatted (RTF?) clipboard rather than the plain text clipboard That's correct, Nisus Writer will obtain formatted text from the clipboard if available, even when pasting as plain text. That's because Nisus Writer does special kinds ...

Re: Copy disabled

the problem seems to be worst when I first launch NisusWriter. My most typical first operation of the morning is to paste a big block of text from FileMaker into NisusWriter, and my informal estimate is that this fails about 50% of the time I wonder if this isn't a problem with FileMaker not vendin...

Re: Copy disabled

Well, after many attempts to fix it, I think that the app Copy’em Paste hijacks or prevents any kind of past in NWP. So I disabled it and had no problem. Have you contacted Copy’em Paste about the problem? I haven't used that app, but Nisus Writer doesn't do anything exotic with the clipboard. When...
