Word count in full screen mode

Any chance of giving us a live word count (including selection) in full screen mode? If you write for living, this is essential.

Re: Any chance of a full screen sans tool bar in Lion.

Martin, I'm not clear from this if Nisus is going to fix the persistent toolbar issue. Please tell me that it is. This is such a fantastically capable application, it would be a real shame if the one thing it couldn't offer was a proper minimalist interface.

Hidden text?

Is there any way to hide text in the current version of Writer? I'd like something like Word's (only better) - the ability to select some words and toggle visibility on and off. This would also affect word counts and printing.

I had the problem with disappearing text when I was running one of the 2.5 alphas. Nisus's representative said it was a known bug. I thought it had been fixed in the finished releases, though.

Yes, full screen would be a fantastic addition. I do a lot of freelance writing for newspapers, so most of the time formatting is someone else's business. MacJournal's full-screen mode is great when you just want to concentrate on the words, not what they look like. The only thing that's missing (an...

Redraw bug

The last couple of alphas seem to have problems with deleting text. The screen doesn't redraw after deleting, until you scroll down the page. I have no idea what, or how much I've deleted. I'm running OS 10.4.1

Too many menus

Is there any way of trimming Nisus's menus? I count 11 of them, going from "Nisus Writer Express" on the left to "Debug" on the right, and because I'm working on a 12in Powerbook they obscure some of my third-party menu items. I expect Debug will vanish once 2.5 is out of alpha/beta, but even withou...

I really like things the way they are, since the current icons for the palette groups don't necessarily represent what I want to use them for. Perhaps a preference for icon-based palette groups or menu-based ones? That does sound like a lot of messing about from a programming angle. What you sugges...

Oops!

Craig, thanks so much for the tip about Paste -> Paste Text Only. I can't believe I didn't notice this before - and I'm now feeling rather stupid.

Styles - feature request

The more I use Nisus Writer, the more I appreciate what a fantastic tool it is. I write for a living, but mainly small pieces, so I focus on basic functions rather than things like footnotes and bulleted lists. I like Writer's live word count, for example, and the way it's not thrown by ellipses. Th...

Yes, please keep the flags. They're much clearer than letter-based codes.

Thanks, but I've pinned down the problem now. Some time ago - long enough that I'd forgotten all about it - I'd created a new language in the Nisus preferences called English (British). This was the one where smart quotes weren't working. Now I've deleted this and am using the built-in English (Brit...

Do you remember how you got smart quotes to work? The only option I can find is in Preferences -> Quick Fix and, as I say, it's greyed out when I select English (British). I've tried trashing the Nisus preference file, but that doesn't make any difference.

Smart quotes and British English

I can't get Writer Express to use smart quotes when my document language is set to English (British). I go to Preferences -> Quick fix, but the Use Smart Punctuation box is greyed out. This is not the case with English (US) or French. Is there any way of fixing this? It makes this otherwise great pr...
