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...

Re: Nisus Always Looks for my Desktop

Oops. I was wrong, sort of. What happens now that I followed both suggestions is that I get the message that NWP can't find my desktop twice and then it launches.

Re: Nisus Always Looks for my Desktop

Thanks to Kino and and dshan for their suggestions. I've tried both and neither worked for me. In fact, the situation is a little worse since I had to replace my macBook Pro with a new one this past week. In the past, NWP would take a long time loading, then tell me my desktop couldn't be found, but...

Nisus Always Looks for my Desktop

Ever since I first opened a document from my iMac on my MacBook Pro, Nisus searches for and, if possible, makes a connection to the iMac. This is fine as long as the iMac is on, but when it's not, either NWP takes a long time to open and does so only after telling me that it can't find my iMac or, w...

Re: NWP Document Templates save as Microsoft Word Templates

I've just been reworking some of my own templates and noticed the problem which others wrote about in September, it looked like, but with no definitive response. I am also seeing the documents saved as Microsoft Word 97 - 2004 Template though I'm certain I don't even have an old copy of word on my c...

Re: Can't Open any documents

Thanks again, Kino and Martin. I've sent Martin the log from Console that appeared when I opened NWP. I have only one copy of the Thesaurus, but have noticed that each time NWP opens in my account, it runs through a list of the fonts. It doesn't do this on my wife's account. A clue, perhaps? I appre...

Re: Can't Open any documents

I think I've now tried all the variations you both (Martin and Kino) so kindly and quickly suggested. I even again tried trashing all those files and reinstalling NWP. Still doesn't work. Nor can I activate "send feedback" since all I get is a dialogue saying that the document (be that my .dot file ...

Can't Open any documents

Here's something new for me: In my account on our older Powerbook G4 titanium, I can no longer open any of my files. Not the new file, not any old file. Nisuswriter Pro will open, but no documents. I get a message saying "open failure" or, if I try just opening a new file, I get the message that it ...
