Quite right, command "=" it is, as command "+" would require the Shift key to be down. I just look for the plus sign though :)

but for me

Post by gemboy27 » 2006-05-02 15:32:29

I went right off and tried it, and no luck, so tha is when I checked the menubar to see what it should be,


that said

when I do
cmd= it enlarges the flie to 200%
cmd- shrinks it back down to 133%

after that, if I go to change it by clicking on the right hand corner and make it 128% it appears to go to that size, but still displays 133% in the corner

and if I do other, it does similar glitchy displays. The actual display seems to be right, just shown display in the corner isn't always right

A more general bug is that changing the zoom to a custom value often leaves the previous value displayed in the zoom popup in the lower right corner.

perhaps a feature request

Post by gemboy27 » 2006-05-02 18:41:14

know what would be nice? if you could program a percentage in....

I like 142% and set up my .dot files as that, however when I open a non-original NWE file it defaults to 100 percent, which is fine, but I would like to be able to pull down (up?) to my pre-programed size.. (142%)

the vanishing scroll bar

Post by Agnostus » 2006-05-05 04:16:20

Beta 9 has a funny little bug. When opening a doc in draft view, or just switching back to a window with a doc in draft view, the scrollbar is gone. You have to switch to page view and then back to draft view to get it back.

Yup, we found it too. However, it has been fixed for beta 10, which hopefully will be out in the next few days.

Full Screen Experience 2.7.b10

Post by SteveSamuels » 2006-05-06 07:47:42

I do like full screen mode--it is less distracting.

However I find the delay in showing the menu bar a little too long.

I'd prefer a preference option for always showing the menu bar in full-screen mode.

Thanks

o a delay

Post by gemboy27 » 2006-05-06 08:47:52

ha thanks SteveSamuels
I didn't even realize that the menu bar showed up, I hit escape and left before it happened.

Full page view doesn't work for me on a 17 inch iMac since it makes the text smaller, my oder eyes needs a 157 percent view

-----------

glich:

so after looking at full page then bouncing from 200% to 333% to 33% then to 153% ...


The ruler remains small, as if I was looking at a 33% page, though the page is 153%

cmd-c

Post by gemboy27 » 2006-05-06 12:29:51

When I select all (cmd-a) then try to cmd-c, I get a sound error, but if I do teh copy from the menubar (pull down copy) it works fine and then I can cmd-c

but if I do cmd-a again and try cmd-c I get a sound error and the copy doesn't work

it seems like the cmd-a is related. When I start with a new file or opening a file fresh after restarting NWE, the cmd-a is how it starts the sound error

I should add that it seems with any sound error, it sounds twice

battle

Post by gemboy27 » 2006-05-06 18:55:15

I'm kind of struggling with beta 10

my new file.dot keeps changing the settings that I set.

I will save my 'Normal' in that file, but when I open it up or a new file, those settings are lost

and no matter how many times I select page view, it defaults back to draft view.

kind of wacky

ps
remind me to make a copy of my new file.dot next time... ouch

Post by gemboy27 » 2006-05-06 19:20:51

kind of a little thing...

when I am set up I have:

Pallette group
Paragraph
Character
Language


then a side window --- free floating -- with
Columns
Sections
Styles

in that Styles window, my selected style is not highlighted, I am pretty sure that is the style of my document, but it doesn't display it....
