Re: Every time I work on an existing document it saves as a copy?

If you're still having this problem please let us know. It sounds very strange and may indicate a problem with system (macOS) sandboxing or permissions. Rebooting your whole Mac might be a good first step in trying to clear the issue.

Re: creating and inserting a word index in a completed document

My reply here mostly just echos what others have said, but the command Index Using Word List expects a separate file that contains the word list. This word list file should hold only the list and no other content. You have two options as to the word list file: 1. Any regular text file (RTF or plain ...

Re: Really slow reacting to typing in 3.0.1

Same problem here. Is there someone who can indicate which stale toolbar icon I need to remove? Please find an activity monitor sample in my dropbox: Thank you for the sample, but your problem is not related to toolbar icons. We already communicated privately with you on this matter (see our reply ...

Re: How to search for a 1 cell table

There's an easy non-macro way to accomplish the same task: 1. Use the Find panel to select the desired text. If you only want to match text inside of tables then set the "Where" option to Tables: where.png 2. After you've found the matches use the menu Table > Delete > Table . That will completely e...

Re: Copy all NWP settings to another computer

Didn't the method for cloning QuickFix data all change with v. 3? Now is this data (or, "are this data"!) in the settings which can be synchronized? That's correct. Nisus Writer Pro version 3 makes synchronizing settings much easier. In general users shouldn't need to dig around in folders to manua...

Re: Losing styles after rtfs being edited in another program

Hello and welcome! We're glad to hear you're liking Nisus Writer so far. As for the loss of styles, that's a question for the other apps you're using. Nisus Writer's RTF files naturally includes all necessary style information. Apps that support styles and RTF (like Microsoft Word) will preserve the...

Re: How can I modify the line between columns?

It's true that you can't adjust the appearance of the section column divider line, no matter how many rocks you upturn. The default thin black line is the only available option. Janeverly already contacted us about this privately, and we replied that we'll consider it as a possible future enhancemen...

Re: Some basic functions don't work

I'm sorry you're having trouble Michael. What you described sounds pretty strange and unexpected. I'd start with some basic checks: 1. Have you tried quitting and relaunching Nisus Writer? 2. Have you tried rebooting your entire Mac? 3. Are you using the most recent version of Nisus Writer? If not, ...

Re: Version Française French localization

I'm sorry that the French localization of Nisus Writer Pro version 3 is not yet available. We intend to add non-English localizations for a future update to Nisus Writer.

Re: A macro converting numbered texts to endnotes

I did indeed take the example text exactly literally :o My macro code expected the note text to be bookended by reference numbers. In thinking about it longer, I can see why this was an unrealistic assumption. But it's good advice that whenever a person requests a macro they should provide a real sa...

Re: A quicker way to delete Untitled files?

That's exactly right, these keyboard shortcuts are all standard across any apps (including Nisus Writer) that use the default system file dialogs. At some point Apple changed "Don't Save" from Command + D to the new Command + Delete. That makes good sense to me. It's not only more logical but also u...

Re: Repeated NWP3.0.1 crashes with High Sierra

I'm very happy to hear your moment of dread passed after some quick thinking on your part! The issue you encountered was almost certainly a problem with macOS sandboxing , and not traditional file permissions as erroneously implied by the system alert. Nisus Writer relies on the system to provide ac...

Re: open Nisus RTF in Indesign

Thank you for trying that simple test, and for posting a video. It's strange that InDesign seems to recognize the RTF (in order to show you potential styles conflicts etc) but then fails to insert any text. I'd like to continue working on this problem with you, in the hopes that we can isolate the c...

Re: open Nisus RTF in Indesign

InDesign still supports RTF import, correct? So their suggestion for you to downgrade doesn't seem like a real solution, just a way to maybe workaround issues in newer versions of InDesign. It's a pity they aren't more helpful in pinpointing the problem. A quick question: what happens if you create ...

Aha Philip beat me to it! 🐌 But I was writing up a macro before I saw his post so I'll post my macro as well. It also looks like Philip's macro has some errors. I tried it on Nobumi's sample text and it failed. That's probably because Philip's macro tries to be more efficient in exactly calculating ...
