Split view

Not sure if I (or others) mentioned this one.

I find split views (split windows) nearly indispensable.

Word, TAO and Ulysses has it. Great efficiency tool.

cheers

For a semi-public release, it is prominently listed on VersionTracker...

Was it intentional?

bluloo, Yes, you may note that earlier versions of the Nisus Writer Express documentation did not even mention this "feature". We are looking into ways to make it (more?) useful… for example only suggesting words that already exist in the document (or other documents you have created). That would m...

Fix - to create a useful autocomplete function

Hi, The concept of autocompletion is a very useful idea. However, the implementation in Nisus is actually bothersome, rather than a feature. Would it be possible to enable a preference for the autocompletion to suggest substitutions after a pre determined (user defined) number of letters? It seems t...

I experience the same thing on my work PC. I get a notification that there was malicious code or a virus blocked by Symantec.

No probs at home on 10.4.2, safari or Firefox.

Exporting to rtf (and plain text) from OmniOutliner is not perfect. The app has a bug whereby space is reserved for the far left column upon export (regardless of settings in the preferences). It's a PIA to remove all of the "spaces", line by line, in order to justify exported text. I've reported th...

Great posts guys. :) The central issue for me remains (inter platform) compatibility with Word because most folks use or require it. RTF is good, as long as headers/footers etc. remain properly formatted (Many scholarly formats, such as APA, require specific styles for page numbering and other attri...

Auto completion

I found a neat app that allows for useful auto completion in NWE. check it out here . You must type a few characters into a document prior to activating the function. It will produce an error (crash?) if it is activated before some text (even a letter or two) is entered into a nisus document. It is ...

Thanks for the reply. The beta and release version exhibit the same behavior. I've read that NWE gets it's word compatibility from AbiWord. Abi has the same difficulties opening certain Word docs as NWE. NeoOfficeJ can open these with ease. Formatting, including the location of page numbers, tables ...

Better Word Compatibility?

Hi, I purchased NWE because it looks very promising and I like to support the Mac market. I am working towards my PhD and find that there are many documents created on the PC using Word that Nisus cannot render properly. I can always open them using NeoOfficeJ and they render properly every time.. B...

thank you for the reply. is there another key that I can use or map to that function? The arrow key isn't convenient as I have to move my hand from the typing position to hit that key (I'm on a 12" powerbook and do most of my typing on it). It's actually disruptive to my workflow, as petty as it may...

newbie question- accepting auto completions- which key?

Howdy, I'm test driving express and I like the auto suggest completions. I can't figure out which simple key combo allows me to accept suggestions when the entire word appears on the page without the pop-up window. For example I'll type "adulthood". when I reach the "h" it completes the word with "o...
