Re: NW for iPad?

I too would love to be able to give Nisus some money for an iPad version. Maybe they should run a Kickstarter campaign. However, if I can't get that, does anyone have suggestions for an iPad program that will read and write rtf without stripping out styles and other stuff Nisus puts in that it may n...

Well, I am getting pretty old and senile so I could be wrong but I thought Mark said January when I talked to him at MWSF. Even if he did say January, I'm not seriously going to hold a slipped deadline against them.

Release date?

Hey, wasn't the public beta of Pro supposed to come out in January? According to my clock, that means sometime in the next two hours. I, for one, will be here clicking refresh over and over.

Differentiation of Express and Pro

One thing I am a little confused about is what the target market is for Express vs Pro. The way I see it, if it is a feature that only confuses my wife, my mother and my boss, it probably belongs in Pro (and not Express). At the same time, if it is a feature my wife, my mother and my boss can't do w...

I just want to chime in to say I agree with the last few posts and to say "Thank you!" to the guys at Nisus. It looks like this release will go a long way towards making Nisus Writer the word processor we all hoped it would become.

Re: outline

I bought Nisus Express with the promise that outlines were just around the corner. Now, not only are they not mentioned, but it looks like the upgrade requires buying an entirely new itiration. On the screen capture it looks like the left drawer has an outline view. That is perfect for me. I don't ...

With the improved macros it looks like it really shouldn't be too hard to write a mail merge macro. Of course, we will see what we get when it ships.

I guess some basic drawing tools would be good for things like borders; however, I think getting text to wrap around pictures pasted in from OmniGraffle is a higher priority. In fact, there are a bunch of things I think are higher priority than any graphics, like being able to script Find and Replac...

I agree... except the part about it being Windows-y. I hate the fact that Apple has decided that all of their applications have to live in the top level of /Applications. Really really irritating.

Hmmm. I use NWE on my PowerBook running 10.3.9 with no real problems, and I use my Epson R800 from my G5 with no real problems. Well, the G5 has some sleep issues, but I don't think they are related to the Epson.

Also, I thought one of the main features of NWE was seamless saving to Word Just a quick comment on this... just send people using Word rtf. Word sees rtf files and they look just like they do in NWE and then when they save the file Word automatically saves them as rtf. I have been doing this with ...

Logically there are three main stages in writing a paper. 1 - the outline - getting your ideas in order. 2 - cranking out the words and putting in the references, 3 - layout and production work. For me at least, there is also 2.5, send your paper to co-authors for comments/revisions, 2.6 review co-...

Re: hmmm

how much would people pay for this feature. Well, if it were compatible with Word's change tracking function (and I don't see why it couldn't be) it would double the value of Nisus to me so probably about $50. Seriously. I do about half my word processing in Word and that is almost entirely because...

I agree that the "accept deletion" has an unnatural double negative to it, and I have incorrectly "deleted deletions" a couple times in Word. I think Ryan's mock up above solves this problem... if you click the red button you get the stuff underlined in red, if you click the green button, you get th...
