Changing Specific Paragraph Ruler Colors

Greetings:

Is it possible to reassign different text colors to specific paragraph (rulers) in NW 6.5?

Thanks!

Nisus Icons Doc Boot-up Changed

Seasons Greetings All! I installed Nisus 6.5 on my old 6230 for the home school but they are more receptive and comfortable with the previous Nisus Compact so I removed 6.5 but all the Nisus documents with Nisus icons, which changed to the shaded type 6.5 creates and uses, won't boot up when clicked...

Re: Nisus OS-X 6.5

Seasons Greetings! This begs the question: how much do you want NWE to look like NW 6.5 Hi, no I don't want NWE to look like NW, I just want to NWE to function more like NW. I really appreciate many of those NWE GUI tools, but they could be more, well, as perfect as some of the NW features. Best Mat...

Express Alternative

hamidlmt:

Pick up a copy of heavy duty Word killer Nisus Writer 6.5 while you're on the local tracks waiting on the Express. Will not regret the choice!

Sudden NW 6.5 Find/Replace Errors in Classic

Greetings: I've been happily using NW 6.5 on my 1.25 gHz eMac quite well for over five months until recently when (if it means anything here) I "updated" from 10.3.4 to 10.3.6, which only ended up with infamous various DNS and non-sleep problems, so I did the archive and install routine back to 10.3...

From The Horses' Mouth

James, The text rendering in Mariner Write is more true to the original because we don't only rely on the system to draw our text but we do a lot of the calculations ourselves. In the past there was no option, but this is now a double edged sword. Many people want the great text rendering that Mac O...

Re: Express Rendering Word and Classic Nisus

Greetings Peder: Thanks for the clarification. There's just one question left which hinges Express's fortunes and the crux of concern for potential purchasers: How does Mariner Write 3.6.4 "get away" with rendering documents from other apps (Word) and even older NW files so faithfully in formatting ...

Is Express's Problems A Cocoa Problem?

Greetings: Just so it's not me, I'd request you to take a single page "virgin" Word (Courier 12) or (RTF converted) NW 6.5 document and import it into Express and eyeball each copy. Is the Express version exactly the same as the Word or Classic NW or does the Express one seem to "swell" and run off ...

Magic Screenwriter

Charles: Fetch Magic Screenwriter. My choice if I could afford it. http://www.screenplay.com/support/demos/index.html Now, as much as I'd love for you to plug all these features in Express, a bare-bones screenwritng capability would be just as useful and faster to build. More/CONT'Ds head the list. ...

The Breakover Screenwriter Feature

Charles: If there's one single feature that'd make my writing day is for a word processor to just simply do Mores and Continueds! I can grit my teeth doing the manual paragraph ruler thing and search/replace characters and naming, but a More/Continueds feature separates the men from the boys in not ...

Nisus Screenwriter

Tom: Thanks a mint for Todd's account of his adventure at Nisus! Nisus's location behind a beauty parlor kinda reminds me of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." where ultra-hi tech U.N.C.L.E. HQ was discretely hidden behind a homely mom and pop tailor shop... >> (Charles also liked my idea about someday build...

Who are Nisus' "Santa's helpers"?

Charles: It'd be interesting for Nisus fans to know -- and to put a human face on them -- about the people responsible for building Nisus Express. I've been wondering this for a LONG time! How many are there? Exactly what does each do in relation to Express? What kind of internal feedback/project di...

Re: "Express doesn't render Classic docs"

Darryl: Please review the topic "Express doesn't render Classic docs faithfully" before you proceed with caution. I think it's vital that Nisus programmers understand that beta testers (their best unpaid cheerleaders) and "unofficial beta testers" (first purchasers) are not reporting Express anomali...

Rendering text fonts in OS-X

Charles & Co. Please understand that 110% behind home-grown Nisus and I'm in no way contradicting you, but there MUST be a way for Express to render NW 6.5 font formats (via RTF) at least as well as a _non-Nisus_ Mariner Write 3.6.3 and Mellel does in OS-X, which is virtually perfect (sans translate...

Not looking for Final Draft

Greetings: I was alluding to a rendering problem, not a features issue. I mentioned Final Draft because its formatting was the standard by which I created my manuscript's format and paragraph rulings by -- and NW 6.5 does it just great! No problemo -- except I can't move Nisus into OS X as well. The...
