How do I recover lost text or a deleted document?

Nisus Writer Pro periodically autosaves your document while you're working. In the unfortunate event that a problem does occur, autosave minimizes the amount of work that might be lost. How do I restore a prior version of my document? If something goes wrong inside your document (for example, maybe ...

Re: Interface Language

That is still possible in the current version. Please check two things: 1. Make sure that the French language is applied to the text you are writing. 2. Make sure that the "smart punctuation" preferences for French are set to use guillemets with spaces like so: quickfix.png Please let us know if you...

Re: Find/replace in each paragraph of the selection

Thanks to Philip for all the great explanations and suggestions! It seems everything is wrapped up here but I just wanted to add a few small replies: Method 1: You can do the initial find using the menu command "Find in Selection" and then use $doc.selections to retrieve the results. This is the app...

Re: Interface Language

Hello Babachiko: I'm sorry but the French localization (interface language) is currently not available in Nisus Writer Pro 3. However, we do plan to restore French and other non-English localizations.

How do I manually gather crash logs for Nisus Writer?

In most situations you can use the feedback reporter inside Nisus Writer to automatically report bugs and gather recent crash logs. But if for some reason you can't use the feedback reporter, or it isn't detecting recent crash logs, you can gather the log files manually. 1. Launch Apple's Console ap...

Re: Save to / Save as to a particular file format

I am trying to use one of the macros provided below but I am getting an error message. The problem with that old macro is that it doesn't take sandboxing into account. The macro will need to explicitly state that it requires access to your Desktop, so it can save the file there. Here's an updated m...

Re: Non breaking Paragraph Marker

The macro as proposed by Martin sounds good. Would it affect numbering in any fashion? I'm glad to hear the macros sound like they would be helpful. I'll attach a first stab at them. One macro is for use when typing such headings, the other can be run in a document afterwards to fix up all such hea...

Re: Library of styles

I'd just like to clarify that although the Style Library is a good tool for holding often-used styles, it does not have any provisions for keeping existing document stylesheets in sync. Once you import a style from the Style Library into another document that style is now a separate entity with a li...

Re: endnotes footnotes

It's true that Nisus Writer has a limitation that prevents footnotes and endnotes from appearing inside table cells. If you open such a file the footnotes and endnotes will be placed just after their table. I'm sorry for the trouble. As for your other question: it is easy to convert all footnotes to...

Re: Table Format for Sort by date?

I'd plead for Nisus to recognize -- either automatically or by a popup choice -- at least one standard long date format That sounds like a good idea. It would be best if Nisus Writer could detect (or ask about) different date formats. Even if a person is comfortable with regex it wouldn't solve thi...

Re: direction of writing

As Daniel suspected, Yehudit is indeed a font from those bad early days. It is not Unicode aware. Yehudit may display as Hebrew on screen, but the underlying characters are not Hebrew. Your text is actually gibberish like "yrIv]a;B]" which is why it doesn't obey modern standards or directionality. P...

Re: Table Format for Sort by date?

I'm glad you figured something out :) As you discovered, using a normalized fixed-width date format where the most significant numeric date components appear first is the correct solution. I wonder if there's a way we can improve Nisus Writer here. It would be nice if we automatically detected dates...

Re: spell check not refreshing

This seems to be a new bug in version 3.0.3. The Language palette doesn't always refresh itself automatically. You can force a refresh in a variety of ways (eg: resize the palette), but naturally that's quite a nuisance. We'll definitely get this fixed for the next software update. Thanks for lettin...

Re: Print specific pages

All I had to do was connect the printer, open Terminal, enter the lp command for selecting a range of pages (see link in my previous posting), drag the file from the Finder and drop it into Terminal, then execute. It worked, even for printing a couple of non-consecutive pages. Ah that's great! Than...
