3.04 and opening docx files -bug?

Ever since upgrading to 3.04 I have been unable to open .docx files in Japanese in NWP. (Have not tried English bc I don't have any) The following error is reported. I have tried opening files from a year or more ago that the previous version had to problem opening. If I open the file in Word and sa...

Re: text color

Alternatively, you could assign a key in the menu preferences to 'Red' and another to 'Black', and simply press the key to change the color of the text you are typing.
I use F6 for red and F7 for black, and the change is instantaneous -- that is, not an interruption to my work flow.

Sort bug in glossary files

Since upgrading to NWP 3.04, sorting a block of text in a glossary file (using the Edit:Transform Paragraphs:Ascending command, both from the menu and thru a macro) results in a superfluous New Line character being inserted after every Glossary Entry Break character. Is this a bug or an unintended '...

Re: Copy disabled

Every now and then Nisus also stops responding to any keyboard input for me. I have never been able to correlate this to any specific action I have taken, but the problem has been resolved by quitting and restarting Nisus. I have usually been able to quit using the mouse, and when not, cmd-escape to...

Re: Japanese top>bottom, right>left

I pasted the text in Word, which makes it very simple to format with a couple of clicks. Alas.

Re: Japanese top>bottom, right>left

Thank you. Unfortunately it is not a solution. As the instructions say: "The vertical text boxes are not a solution for full-page vertical text layout, but rather an extra feature to embellish your default horizontal text layout." I needed a full solution for a document written in Japanese, not an e...

Japanese top>bottom, right>left

The reason I started using Nisus many years ago was for its Japanese support. Until now, I have never had a need for J other than left>right, top>bottom as in English. Nisus supports right>left for Hebrew and other languages in horizontal lines from top to bottom. Is there a way to get Japanese in t...

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

Have you installed the 3.01 update?
Spelling problems were one of the fixes, and 3.01 fixed the problem for me.

Re: character recognition

Perhaps the problem is with Libre Office. Like Philip, opening the untitled1.doc directly in Nisus shows no problem. When I open the untitled1.doc in LO, everything appears fine. But when the document is then saved in LO as rtf, and Nisus opens that rtf file, the second line appears in Greek charact...

Re: Stopping Cro Magnon man

I hadn't opened the New File file itself, but doing so and making the settings worked.
Thanks.

Re: Stopping Cro Magnon man

Martin, Thank you for the reply. I was referring to the icons that appear down the left side of the window at the first line of each paragraph where formatting changed. The icon in the status bar makes it simple to turn displaying the icons on/off. I was hoping there is a way to change the default f...

Stopping Cro Magnon man

I found how to turn the palletes off in a New Document. How can I stop Cro Magnon man and his children from showing up automatically in the left border with every new document into which I paste text from another document? Show Changes Icons in Margin toggles it in an open document. How can I change...

Re: Quirky behavior in 3.0

Martin, Thank you. The absolute path bit is helpful and made the changes. Is there a more concise way to write the line that finds the next 2-byte Japanese character -- including hiragana, katakana, and kanji, not including numbers and punctuation? Regarding execution of this and similar macros, it ...

Re: Quirky behavior in 3.0

is the problem that the macro is slow and thus takes effect later than you expect? Yes. Here is one: Find '(?:\\p{Hiragana}|(?<=\\p{Hiragana})\\u30FC)|(?:\\p{Katakana}|(?<=\\p{Katakana})\\u30FC)|(?:\\p{Han})', 'E' Macro:editing macros:SetEnglishFont where SetEnglishFont is # SetEnglishFont Format:La...
