Re: Upgrading Files

Thanks again to both of you for good advice and teaching me something new.

I think this question has been answered.

Re: Upgrading Files

Thanks, Martin. I do appreciate that I may not need to do all that work. The reason I asked is because I'm compiling sets of old administrative files to pass on to a new executive director who likely uses Word and maybe even a pc. Would the files in their older form still be accessible?

Upgrading Files

I'm cleaning up old files and folders and would like to upgrade files created with old versions of Nisus. Is there a way to do this other than by opening each file separately and then saving it as a NisusWriter 3 document? I have lots of these old files, most of them Nisus and some are old Word file...

Re: Endnotes not Showing

I think I've found a key, Martin (and I've sent you the entire file. I made a change in the way the endnotes show and that restored them to the first three sections, but not the fourth. But there was a section break between what are chapters three and four of this book, but no notes to chapter three...

Re: Endnotes not Showing

Thanks for replying, Martin. Perhaps before I send you the file, which is long and entirely in Hebrew, let me throw in something I just learned. If I copy a single section and paste it into a new file, the endnotes show up though without my formatting. If I made a copy of the entire file, or selecte...

Endnotes not Showing

I just began working with Nisus 3 and the first thing I've seen is that the endnotes which I had showing at the end of each section are no longer visible. I can see them if I create a split view and then clicking on the number will move the cursor between text and note as it always did before. Is th...

Smart Quotes Reversed

I've been translating a Hebrew document and, when I need to insert quotes into the Hebrew (when the author is citing verses), they are coming out reversed and I have to type four to get two in the right direction. I think I remember that there was a way to fix this, but I an't remember what it was o...

Re: iOS integration

I have been using Textilus Pro in my iPad. It's not perfect, but it was the only word processor I could find that saved in rtf. The more complicated the formatting of the Nisus document, the more errors Textilus will make (e.g. it doesn't relate to outlines), but for many purposes it works well, esp...

Re: NW 2.04 and Mountain Lion

Thanks for the responses. I did keep digging around. When I checked Activity Monitor, I found that CalendarAgent was hogging a huge amount of memory and using a lot of cpu. Poking around some more, I found the following: http://robert.accettura.com/blog/2012/08/19/how-to-stop-calendaragent-from-eati...

NW 2.04 and Mountain Lion

I just installed Mountain Lion on my Macbook Pro (and, so far, wishing I had not). Things are running very slowly, including NW (saving as a pdf, for example, took a good five minutes). So I'm wondering if others have experienced this slowdown and whether there is any reason to think it is connected...

Re: Font Categories

Thanks, Hamid and Lanx. I hate to admit this, but the reason I couldn't find the answer is that I didn't have the new manual and hadn't realized that one was available. All is well now, at least as far as adding fonts to favourites goes.

Re: Font Categories

Thanks, Hamid, but I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing. Yes, I can create a collection called "Favorites" in Font Book and move fonts into it. I don't seem to be able to that, even using the little pop-down menu, when I activate the font list using command -t. However, that isn't the sam...

Font Categories

I notice that the font list now includes categories such as "Favourite Fonts" and "Recent Fonts." I see how fonts get included in the latter, since that used to be the top few fonts in the standard list. But how do fonts get to become favourites?

Re: Nisus Always Looks for my Desktop

Thanks again to everyone trying to help. I again removed the documents and folders Kino suggested, but no change. Then I used another, clean account on my laptop, launched NWP, and indeed it opened without looking for the desktop. What does that mean? I'm not running third party software like what y...

Re: Nisus Always Looks for my Desktop

Thanks Kino. I've tried the things you suggested and none of them worked. There was even a plist file which was of shared files and I trashed that thinking it could help. The problem is now manageable, since I get the message that NWP can't find my desktop, but then it finished launching. Just takes...
