Re: Changing icons in Safari

Thanks for (hopefully) fixing this so quickly. I was starting to see your icon in all sorts of strange places - LaunchBar, MailMate etc.

Personally I think it was an attempt at subliminal advertising :)

Fancy, just a checkbox difference!
I bet Microsoft and Adobe wish this were the case.

Just joking.

Line spacing query

I suspect that the answer to this question is no but maybe there is some clever way to achieve what I am after. I have a piece of text set within a paragraph but using a different font and font size purely for that text. Is there anyway to reduce the line spacing, purely for the selected text, to tr...

WYSIWYG Fonts

I noticed (what I think is) a slight problem with WYSIWYG fonts in 2.6.1 yesterday. Looking down the list I saw that some fonts do not show a name (things like Mathematica fonts) but was not too concerned as they are obscure and rarely if ever used. I did notice that Zapfino down at the bottom of th...

Sorry for the long reply! As part of a Usenet discussion on Pages, I recently posted my own views of the relative strengths of the two applications. I use both and rate them both highly but use them in slightly different way. NWE is a tool that lets one focus on writing and doesn't let much get in t...

this is already working, at least with NWX 2.6 on Mac OS X 10.4.4
Thanks for that. I see what you mean. I had never tried highlighting the font name and typing - what I was thinking more of the way a drop-down works in say a web browser.

Font Selection

My pleas for 3.0 would be to be able to select fonts from the font menu by typing the first few letters of the font name. This is a great time saver if you know precisely which font you are looking for.

Linkback with 2.6

I've just downloaded NWE 2.6 this morning and tried my usual Linkback test with an embedded OmniGraffle diagram. Again, I am unable to edit the embedded image - not a great surprise to me as I tried FC2 last week and found the same. I am now running latest version of OS 10.4, Omnigraffle and NWE. Wh...

Templates

I was looking around to see if there are any sites that have NWE templates available for download. Any pointers?

I tried this and got some results but they need expert interpretation to see if they are relevant. The following is taken from the console.log when starting up a Nisus document with a OG graphic. I also get the same thing when opening a regular RTF file with no graphics. ===== Wednesday, 7 December ...

I checked out these points tonight and NWE and OmniGraffle have the same permissions and owner information. Boths are stored in /Applications rather than within my user area.

I have tried using Linkback with OG already open and closed.

I'm at a complete loss now. It will be interesting to see if Nisus support is able to add any more to this one. I agree the test account would be an interesting avenue to pursue but it seems like a lot of work. I've killed all the weird apps to see if one of them is clashing, the app would remain th...

Just as an aside, both of the Omni apps that I use have a Linkback entry within the Edit menu. Does NWE normally have one?
