Macros are a per user thing - they're always stored in ~/Library/Application Support/Nisus Writer/Macros. It doesn't matter where the NWX executible is kept - /Applications or ~/Applications - each user has their own copy of the Macros folder (just as they have their own copies of Nisus New File.do...

The mystery is starting to resolve --- inspired by your ideas, I did lug the printer back in, checked all settings (which were okay) and did a test doc - which printed perfectly. Back to original brief - still no page numbers. Set all margins, footers, exactly like test doc - still no page numbers....

NWX will always recreate the system supplied macros in the Macros folder, you can't delete them (trashing prefs won't help, this behaviour is apparently hard coded). But you can now (2.7) create sub-folders inside the Macros folder (e.g. the 'templates' sub-folder), why not put your Applescript mac...

I'd rather just write the doc in Nisus Writer the first time round. So far the only reason to run OSX appears to be better use of the Web. I love Nisus Writer so much and have used it so long, I am having a lot of trouble with NWE, part of which appears to be buggy stuff and part of which, of cours...

That makes so much sense I guess I have to wrestle my printer back from the other room where it is once again hooked up to my old computer (running 9.2, hence beloved Nisus Writer, not NWE) and try again, even though I swore I wasn't going to lug it in here one more time today... Thanks. I'll post ...

Re: The bottom half of each page number is not printing

Help!! After wrestling through all the sections and finally getting footers with proper page number format through my document, I printed it out and found that only the top of each number is getting printed - as in, if you want to print an "i", you get only the dot. No message from 2.7 that doc exc...

On a similar note, being a Brit I'd like to be able to have all my new documents default to proper English rather than English (US). And when I paste text from a web page or any other document with language attributes, I'd like Nisus to ignore them and assume they're written in real English. After ...

<snip> But I also have a .mdimporter plugin for Microsoft Office (12.0.1) in that folder and that I cannot explain as I've never installed any version of MS Office on my Mac.

Re: keyboard shortcut for 10pt font?

I'm revising my dissertation for publication & use 12pt font for the text of the main body, but 10pt font for the footnotes. I do lots of cutting/pasting & would like to use a keyboard shortcut to make my pasted footnote text 10pt. My attempt to assign the F1 key fails. In prefs I go to menu keys, ...

The "Thank you" thread

Hey all, I'd like to take a leaf out of Forrest's--on the OmniWeb forum--book and start a "Thank you" thread to the guys there at Nisus. I've been using "Nisus Writer Express" since it didn't exist, as when I first moved to OS-X I found Charles Jolley's "Okito Composer". I remember the accusations o...

Hi, Returning to Nisus Express after a period with an employer who insisted on MSWord, I find that when I use the keyboard shortcut for CopySpecial Ruler, up comes the Colour palette !

Re: File Path For Document

It sounds like you are after the file path of the document. In NWX there is a Perl macro called "Paste Path" that is supposed to give you this info. Unfortunately it's broken in NWX 2.6.1 and earlier, it returns nothing for the path. It's supposed to be fixed in NWX 2.7 I believe but as I've not ye...

If either of you can submit to me a document that has these gremlins in Express, but not in TextEdit, I would be grateful. I do need to see the whole file I'm afraid, since just copying a chunk of it and saving it as a new file won't reveal any decoding errors. Hi Martin, you've had most of my prob...
