I really don’t see how this could be a surprise to anyone. This recent post http://www.nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1799 in which the contents were written back in 2003 stated it very clearly what Nisus road map was. The following is a quote from that post. "Then he hinted about his long-term pla...

A little nostalgia

Thought someone might want a glimpse back to the ‘good old days’ when NWE was still in its infancy (version 1.x). This was way before they became international software moguls and moved their operations into a new 60 story Nisus Tower. ;-) Unfortunately I don’t know who penned this article and unabl...

Like midwinter and Heather Kay I use Nisus for all text related input. Including copy for web sites, newsletters and magazine articles/editorials. The latter gets dumped directly in to Adobe Indesign. Unfortunately save to HTML doesn’t produce clean modern code and have switched to TextEdit for fast...

Welcome to the Mac world. Nisus may have rushed earlier versions of Nisus Writer Express to market, (a lot of growing pains for all parties) but they seem to be right on track now. You won’t go wrong purchasing Nisus Writer Express.

Very open and transparent answer. That’s why I’ll continue to support Nisus. Thanks Charles

Between you and me, irev, no secret handshake is needed to get the information you seek. While the bugs in NWX remain hidden from the general public, locked inside an iron vault at Nisus HQ, you can decipher the code by playing this record backwards: Thank you for that eye opening reference. After ...

Thanks Charles for your reply and encouragement to “keep them coming.” Shortly after the release of NWE 2.0, Nisus announced that they would be directing all available resources towards improving NWE, and would not have the time to respond to individual correspondence. Great decision that I applaude...

Feed Back Two Way Street

I think I speak for most Nisus users when I say I want Nisus to be successful. Success equates to more available resources, creating faster development and a better product. Nisus has encouraged users to play a part in that success by asking us to send detailed reports to them when problems arise. B...

Some people are very comfortable with fully loaded tool bars open while they work. For me they are a distraction and eat up valuable screen real estate. Having the ability to set up key board commands for just about every concievable function in NWX satisfies my needs nicely.

To ‘b’ or not to ‘b’ ?

I have a suggestion for future Nisus updates. What if Nisus simply added the letter ‘b’ after the new release number, for example 2.1.3b? This would alert everyone that it’s a Beta release and they should try it at their own risk. Nisus would be acknowledging upfront that it’s not perfect but they a...

dshan, Thank you for your help and thoughtful post. Yes, I do run Repair Disk Permissions regularly along with Mac Janitor, Preferential Treatment, Cache Out X, Disk Warrior, and fsck etc. I also remove the Preference plist file each install. The weird text behavior just started in version 2.1. The ...

Thank you for replying Robin Hood. Using the latest 2.1 version. Didn’t experience any of the jumping, chopped off lines of text, or white strike through lines in 2.0.1. Just a lot of spinning beach balls that required a force quit. I should however mention that the above text gremlins only appear i...

Problems NOT related to long docs

Nisus is an elegant tool for writing. Unfortunately in its present state it is not stable enough to trust for any other purpose than to write an email. It has too many gremlins and crashes unpredictably. There are many problems, none of which are related at all to long documents. As I write this mes...
