Drag and Drop Editing

Have you read the info on drag and drop in the manual? "With Nisus Writer Express you can drag any selection and drop it somewhere else in any Drag and Drop compatible application. 1 Select the characters (either text or graphics, either contiguous or noncontiguous blocks) which you want to move.

Bullet Points and Outlining

I use Red Bird Island's Nisus Macros to do outlining and bullet points in NWX. They work well and you can modify them to your heart's content if there's something more you require. The link's on the NWX 1.1 page:

Jump To The Right

As far as I'm aware this is deliberate, and I for one like it working this way. I often have two docs open at once in NWX (and I don't want their windows overlapping) but only the left one needs to have the tool drawer open (e.g. right one is an outline for the left one). I load the right window doc...

Nisus Problem

Do you get any messages in the console or system logs?

What version of OS X are you using?

Do any of the menus operate?

Saving In Word Format Broken

Yep, I get the same thing with 1.1.2 (I've not seen 1.1.2a, where did you get that?) It saves it with .doc suffix and W8BN file type but the file is actually in RTF format...

Still Employed?

Well Matt 1.1.2 is out and the bug is dead; the only remaining question is - are you still employed? I hope so, good luck.

Autosave Probelms - The Cause?

I've been doing more research into this problem triggered by the fact I noticed that although autosave is broken and unsaved changes are lost without any warning as described in previous posts this only happens with new documents created under 1.1.1 and 1.1.1a! I have a couple of older docs I origin...

Autosave Error Messages

The last week I have experienced several times that the NWE 1.1.1a has alerted me that some particular documents could not be saved by the autosave function and that the NWE has disabled the autosave function because of that. I sent in a feedback from within NWE , so I hope they fix the bug asap, a...

Re: is the autosave behaviour actually a bug?

Seems like we're nailing down the no-warning-when-closing-modified-documents bug. I'm still a little uncertain about the autosave thing. Is the 1.1.1a autosave behaviour definitely buggy? Is the intended function of autosave to save your document just as though hit Cmd-s? If so, then there is a bug...

Autosave Broken in NWX 1.1.1 and 1.1.1a, Works in 1.1a

I found an old copy of NWX 1.1a (hooray for backups!) and tried the autosave and "no warning on closing unsaved docs" bugs described above with that and it works just fine! So the bug was introduced in 1.1.1 and is still there in 1.1.1a. We need a 1.1.1b that fixes these nasty autosave bugs ASAP. Me...

Autosave Broken in 1.1.1 and 1.1.1a

I went back to NWX 1.1.1 and can also still repro this problem. I notice you no longer get the brief "Saving..." message at the bottom of the window every x minutes (accompanied by a brief pause and grinding of the HD as it saved) with auto-save set I that I recall from earlier releases (must have b...

Yep, I can repro this as well using 1.1.1a. I'm pretty sure this was working fine in earlier releases--1.1.1 or maybe 1.1a...

WN4 and NWE

As almost everyone agrees that WN4 was the king of WP how about support for importing (and if possible exporting) WN4 docs in NWE? I don't use WN4 anymore but I do have some old WN4 docs that I'd like to be able to bring into NWE directly and easily.
