Re: Nisus Always Looks for my Desktop

Thanks Kino. I've tried the things you suggested and none of them worked. There was even a plist file which was of shared files and I trashed that thinking it could help. The problem is now manageable, since I get the message that NWP can't find my desktop, but then it finished launching. Just takes...

Re: Nisus Always Looks for my Desktop

Oops. I was wrong, sort of. What happens now that I followed both suggestions is that I get the message that NWP can't find my desktop twice and then it launches.

Re: Nisus Always Looks for my Desktop

Thanks to Kino and and dshan for their suggestions. I've tried both and neither worked for me. In fact, the situation is a little worse since I had to replace my macBook Pro with a new one this past week. In the past, NWP would take a long time loading, then tell me my desktop couldn't be found, but...

Nisus Always Looks for my Desktop

Ever since I first opened a document from my iMac on my MacBook Pro, Nisus searches for and, if possible, makes a connection to the iMac. This is fine as long as the iMac is on, but when it's not, either NWP takes a long time to open and does so only after telling me that it can't find my iMac or, w...

Re: NWP Document Templates save as Microsoft Word Templates

I've just been reworking some of my own templates and noticed the problem which others wrote about in September, it looked like, but with no definitive response. I am also seeing the documents saved as Microsoft Word 97 - 2004 Template though I'm certain I don't even have an old copy of word on my c...

Re: Can't Open any documents

Thanks again, Kino and Martin. I've sent Martin the log from Console that appeared when I opened NWP. I have only one copy of the Thesaurus, but have noticed that each time NWP opens in my account, it runs through a list of the fonts. It doesn't do this on my wife's account. A clue, perhaps? I appre...

Re: Can't Open any documents

I think I've now tried all the variations you both (Martin and Kino) so kindly and quickly suggested. I even again tried trashing all those files and reinstalling NWP. Still doesn't work. Nor can I activate "send feedback" since all I get is a dialogue saying that the document (be that my .dot file ...

Can't Open any documents

Here's something new for me: In my account on our older Powerbook G4 titanium, I can no longer open any of my files. Not the new file, not any old file. Nisuswriter Pro will open, but no documents. I get a message saying "open failure" or, if I try just opening a new file, I get the message that it ...

Find & Replace: Hebrew Issue

I have several documents in Hebrew which are pointed. If I do a find for a particular word without including the points, I get a "found none" response. Is there a way I can get Nisus to ignore the pointing and search only for the combination of letters?

Renumbering Footnotes by Section

I'm working from a file originally done in Word for PC. What I need to do is change the footnote numbering from starting over on each page to starting over in each new section. When I set that in the footnote style, it makes no difference. Even when I remove the page separations and group the text b...

Page Numbers in the Status Bar

I'm wondering if it is possible to change the way page numbers appear in the status bar. I'm working on a long document, broken up into several files. When I set the beginning page number for each file, the status bar will say something like "page 27 of 53," where 27 is the page number I've given to...

Page Numbers in Page Zoom

It seems to me that, when I would begin a new file with a page number greater than one (so that it continued from a previous file of the same document), I could see the number of the page and the total number of pages as both beginning with one (e.g. page 3 of 10) in the page zoom while at the botto...

NW Crashes

Lately, I have been having the experience of NW 6.5 crashing during long sessions. I can't quite pick out a pattern, but it may have to do with quickly scrolling, using the layout mode, and perhaps when I'm working with footnotes. The crash is sudden and I have taken to saving manually. At this poin...

NW Express Disappointing

I hadn't realized that there was a shift to a web format for these lists. I was wondering why I wasn't receiving anything via email. In any case, as a very long time Nisus user and booster, I feel that I have to add my own disappointment to that of others. I downloaded the beta, but used it only onc...
