thanks for the input...

have you heard of Textpander? This seems to be similar & also gets good reviews. I'm a writer who uses certain names, phrases repetitively and need something super simple for a handful of basic autocompletes.

Anyone use typeit4me with NWE?

I used this nifty little program with Classic with great success. Has anyone used it with NWE?

Thanks for the input. It's not in the macro file...You're of course right about messages. I've been using computers since practically paleolithic times but Nisus macros defeat me...I wish the NWE help were more helpful, ie more detailled & explicit...It seems so simple to set up the kind of expansio...

I miss "insert chapter #" and "go to page ____" from Classic...I used them both constantly...I also liked the way Word (which I haven't used in about a hundred years) "remembered" the last last three insertion points, making it easy to quickly go back to previous locations....

410 page doc gone!!! + a Macro question....can anyone help?

I tried (and failed) to write a simple macro. When I went back to my doc, worked on it for a while, then tried to save it, I got a message saying that it could not be saved in this script (or something close to that). I'd never seen that message, didn't understand it & proceeded to save. When I reop...

continuing problem with "find" in 2.6...

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes closing its window fixes the problem, other times, not. Sometimes a few keystrokes in the doc fixes the problem, other times, not. Anyone else notice this? Any solutions?

opening Nisus

Is there a way I can set Nisus 2.6 to open to the last document I was working on? And can it be set to open where I left the insertion point? OS X 4.4...thanks

feature request...

I used "go to page ____" and "insert chapter #" constantly in Classic. Please please please add them to NWE!!! The first made navigating a doc so fast & easy...the second made adding/deleting chapters also fast & easy...I work with long docs & really miss these two!

problem solved

I spoke with George at Nisus...he said that most likely there was a temporary bug..."Find" now works fine...Quitting the program & going back cleared the problem... Also, there's no "go to page" function in Nisus Express...you need to scroll down and keep an eye on the page meter in the lower left o...

Thank you. The dilemma is that I'm working with a long manuscript and can't copy the word I'm looking for because it's elsewhere in the document. Locating it is the reason I'm doing the "find" in the first place. I did double check to see if "match case" etc were checked or unchecked. Still didn't h...

Just want to let you know that I finally hired a tech expert to help since nothing worked. After a conversation with George at Nisus, it turned out that the document in question had been corrupted during the transfer from OS 9 to OS X...So the problem wasn't with Nisus....Again thank you for your in...

Hi dshan....The doc is plain vanilla, English language, helvetica, double spaced manuscript (it's a novel), no charts, diagrams, lists or other "fancy" formatting...Really, it could not be more basic. My husband & I just sent another book to our publisher...the ms was created in Classic...publisher ...

thanks for your reply....

I opened the file from within Nisus Express but all the formatting problems I described above remain...Do you have any other ideas?....Actually, I'm amazed that the different versions of Nisus don't seamlessly work with each other....I've emailed Nisus help but they haven't answered...at least not y...
