Could we expect this new version before or after Christmas 2007? :wink: It would be great to have this as a Christmas present from Nisus Inc to all of us. :D
Or do you mean Christmas 2006? That would be good!

Until this summer I was still on dial-up, now I have DSL; there is considerable difference in speed/load times between the two. It was frustrating to have to wait only for "incidental" graphics to load. Many times I just moved on to other boards. So I understand the OP's concern. Sometimes the graph...

I'm not sure which poster it was, but somebody sent in a preference file that reproduces the non-functional Styles palette bug. The problem only manifests (in this case) if the palette is configured as a floating palette. I'll see that we fix this before release. Thanks! That was me; I sent the fil...

I hope not a "too good a feeling"

After launching FC2, I am unable to select any style in the style palette. OS X 10.3.9

Since I am still using 10.3.9, NWE isn't quite what I need (SHIFT + Retrun does not work properly without 10.4). The styles, auto-title, mentions in Mellel were hurdles, but I made the effort early and have not regretted it. Most of my writing is theological papers [Hebrew, Greek, Latin/Germa/Englis...

Well, a little more than an annoyance. ;)

It isn't just the beginning of a paragraph. If you copy a space and a letter, it will convert that space to the length of a tab indentation.

Oh well.

I have found it a problem in most situations, not just with a word that begins the paragraph.

Greetings. I noticed a problem in NWE 2.6beta4 with the Find and Replace. I copied a word ("This") from a NWE document and pasted into the Find window. It added some kind of spacing (like a large tab) before it. While it will make the necessary changes, I have found that this "extra space" will rema...

Re: Classic feature add-back schedule?

Having said that, though, we are adding back some old favorites, plsu new stuff, in the next major release. I can't reveal what they are just yet, but the majority will be pleased. P.S. Sorry about the tease. Howdy, Dave. Teasing is okay.... ;) However, will these new features work with OS X 10.3.9...

I've been called worse, and I still can do some valuable work. ;)

Well, Mellel does give you an option on the interface. And it works. Unfortunately NWE does not support soft-returns in 10.3.9, so it is not very useful for me, even on this one point.

I just wanted to point out that you are asking two different questions at the same time. In the post itself you ask " Will the features in Nisus Writer Express ever match ...", but the poll asks " Is Nisus Writer Express as good as ...". You should probably make it clear which exactly you want answ...

I just noticed a problem in Beta 4. If I type something in parentheses, then I expect the smart quotes to be properly curled. Thus, in the following example: ("just wait until I come," mother said) I expect the first quote mark to be curved such that it would reflect the beginning of a quote, as nor...
