Re: Versions

I'm using El Capitan 10.11.6. Could that be the problem? That could indeed be the issue. Although the new Versions listing feature is provided by Nisus Writer, its placement on the File menu depends on Nisus Writer properly identifying the place it should appear. That is, Nisus Writer needs to iden...

Re: Versions

Mark's screenshot shows the new menu accurately (thanks for posting it!). You should see the Versions menu exactly like that.

sjha: what version of macOS are you using?

Re: Page-numbering

We're happy to help! To insert a page number you use the menu: Insert > Automatic Number > Page Number Those automatic numbers can appear anywhere, but mostly people want to insert them into headers or footers. To do that you need Page View to be active, click into the header/footer area, and then i...

Re: Problem in saving new files

So what should I do to stop this? I would recommend the same thing as before, which is to reselect your Nisus New File template. Even if the Advanced area of the New File preferences shows the correct file, you should click the "Choose" button to confirm the existing file. That should make the syst...

Re: Problem in saving new files

I'm running into this problem again, and inevitably it always happens when I am trying to take notes on a conversation (or these days a Zoom presentation) and don't have time to try to note the error message I'm sorry about the bad timing! I hate that frantic feeling, when you can't properly deal w...

Re: Style Superimposition

I agree that this would be a very powerful feature for users that really make use of styles. Aside from just enforcing combined text formatting and cleaner stylesheets, which in itself would be very useful, this would also enable many other kinds of automated workflows. I'll certainly record your in...

Re: New MacBookPro, error messages

1) the program will not open a document from the Finder window: I have to open NWP and then open the document from there. Why? If the problem is that the Finder warns you that your Nisus Writer files are from an unidentified developer, then Adrian's advice to configure the Finder to open all RTF fi...

Re: Formatting text of a cross-reference

1. how can I format the visible cross-reference text so it has its own identity, and 2. Same question for the target of the cross-ref. Philip already covered question #1 and showed the preference that allows you to enable on-screen highlighting to show cross-references. The same section of the pref...

Re: Paragraphs Starts Odd Page?

You can't enforce that a paragraph starts on an odd page with formatting or styles. You'll have to instead use an old-fashioned section break, via the menu:

Insert > Section Break > Odd Page

I hope that helps!

Re: To Markdown macro

I downloaded your "To Markdown" macro, and everything seems to work except for the Blockquote. The default style in NWP is "Block Quote" instead of "Blockquote". I don't know if that name change makes any difference in function. That's actually not the problem. Despite the macro comments talking ab...

Re: Macro issues …

I just tried a simple test and see that the current version of default text does update existing footnotes. In which case these two macros can be assigned to the dustbin of history. That's true now. The footnote style does enforce "after text" for note references, and updates it automatically. But ...

Re: Macro to remove some applied formatting

Then you say you want to "remove the text color".Of course there always has to be some text color. I guess most people consider "black" the default. The command Set Text Color requires a color argument. I can't see a way to say "none". Instead of using these "Set" commands, it's probably better to ...

That's what it says in the macro language reference in two locations.

How can I stop it besides quitting and re-opening Nisus?
If a macro is taking too long to finish executing you can abort it by pressing the Esc (Escape) key on your keyboard, or the keyboard shortcut Command + Period.
