font character options in toolbar?

I like to work with the tools drawer closed but it's not something I can really do if I'm frequently changing the font characteristics. Is there a way to put that in a toolbar, so it's an easy one click, or should there be?

display word count?

I know I can view the word count from the statistics pallet. Is there a way though to permanently show the word count as I write, while keeping the tools drawer closed? I know other wp programs do this, by displaying the word count on the bottom of the page.

hidden headers and footers as a style

I can't figure out from the documentation how to create a document style that would hide the headers and footers. When I did try it, that option in the palette was grayed out.

thanks for any help,

Re: Idea about tabbed view / reasons I like the software

I have been thinking about this lately. It seems to me that having tabs for different files is an idea whose time has come. I see it was on the list of considerations for Nisus a while back. Is it still being considered. It would be so great to have be able to click and forth in between files instea...

upgrade window

many thanks. my wife will now be re-endeared.
i, on the other hand, after years of waiting in vain for the ability to add comments to my documents, have given up and have moved back to Word.

new version window

my wife is a user of express 2.7. she doesn't want to upgrade to 3.0. is there a way we can stop that upgrade notice window from appearing every time she starts NWE? It's pretty annoying and is not endearing nisus to her. Why not a "don't show this notice again" version?

re comments

comments is such a basic and useful feature, I just don't understand why nisus has left it out this long. i've been playing around with the new version of pages (am not familiar with the older version), and it does them nicely.

add comments?

just wondering if I was missing a menu item to add comments to text or if the ability to do so isn't there.

need comments

I often find myself switching between word processing programs, but lately I have to admit to sticking with Pages in large part because of the Comments feature. I rely on it heavily for my writing. It's a great feature. I wish Nisus had it.

zoom feature

i've been shopping for a new keyboard that would offer some relief to my hands and maybe also one that have a few convenient features to reduce mousing. apple doesn't make anything other than the standard keyboards, so I ended up with a microsoft keyboard. both they and the logitech have keyboards w...

i just bought a new ergonomic keyboard, which has a slider switch in the middle for zooming. it works great on Word, how convenient. Could the functionality be added to Nisus?

dumb question: is there a way to go to a specific page?

is there a keyboard command to do this or something on the menu? can't seem to find anything about navigating around documents in the manual.
