Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

There are some spellchecking irregularities in Nisus Writer Pro 3 that we're still investigating. They come in different forms, but this is one that we've identified and already understand: NWP 3.0 flags EVERYTHING as incorrect. It's only just started to do this -- that is, it wasn't doing it at 2 p...

Re: Text colors change in Nisus 2 and 3

I'm sorry you're having trouble with shifting colors Xuanying. The color you've assigned to your text should not change between Nisus Writer versions. I just did a quick test in Nisus Writer Pro 2.1.x and 3.0 and it appears to be working correctly. Here's what I did: 1. Launch Nisus Writer Pro 2.1.1...

Re: NWP 3 Document Properties Feature Requests

I'm glad to hear Nisus Writer's custom document properties have been useful for your workflow! Thank you for your feedback and suggestions. First, a floating palette or non-modal window for editing properties would be nice. ... The modal property sheet adds a bunch of clicks to the process. That's a...

Re: PDF Opens One Page Only

Nisus Writer can extract full editable text from PDFs, but it depends on how the PDF file was created. If Nisus Writer is unable to extract text from a PDF then it will fallback to inserting the first page of the PDF as an image. This is likely the behavior you're observing. However, to be absolutel...

Re: Spell Check Language Not Changeable

Hi Al, I believe we already discussed this with you privately but I'll post a solution here too for others. The unwanted spelling dictionary was activated because your document text was marked in the Portuguese language. Nisus Writer allows each piece of text in a document to have its own language w...

Re: Follow-Up Question to My Post "Text Variables": How Do I Attach a Character Style to a Custom Property?

You can insert a custom document property that retains its dynamism (ie: the value will automatically update) and apply a style. There's no need to sacrifice automatic updates. I recommend that you do this either using Glossaries or a more refined macro. Using a Glossary entry is straightforward: ju...

Re: Preference files

Hello Hari, I'm sorry you had trouble migrating your user settings between Macs. I'm sure you have more than just Nisus Writer settings to contend with. It is possible to manually migrate QuickFix entries from Nisus Writer version 2 to version 3, even between different Macs. It's not too difficult. ...

Re: Wrong graphic at startup?

But the icons of my Nisus documents on my desktop are still those with Hermes, while the same documents in the Document manager show the new icon with the fountain pen. Is this intentional too? That's not intentional. Ideally your Nisus Writer file icons would use the new app icon everywhere. We ca...

Re: Wrong graphic at startup?

Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with your copy of Nisus Writer or its startup graphic. What you see is intentional. We love our excellent new Nisus Writer Pro 3 app icon, created for us by Rory at ThinkMac : https://nisus.com/pro/images/AppIcon-Pro3@1x.png It's beautiful, distinctive, and incorpo...

The icon shows regardless of whet...

Re: NWP3 Default Internet Link

Using http instead of https is still viable in web browsers. However, the suggestion to default Nisus Writer to showing https would be more modern. It likely doesn't matter much, as I expect most users will paste a previously copied link instead of typing one manually. The default display of http or...

Where are you seeing that? I don't see that menu anywhere. None of my menus here have the word Grammar on them:

Re: Spell check issue on large documents

I'm sorry this continues to be a problem for you. What you've heard from us on the matter is correct: if you use the "Learn Spelling" command to remove a misspelled word the rest of your document (including footnotes) will be rescanned in the background as idle time is found. How long this takes dep...

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

Thank you very much for the report and document! We've replied privately already, but the short answer is that we can't reproduce this bug (for now) but hopefully we can continue to work together to narrow it down. And this isn't a grammar checker bug, as Nisus Writer doesn't mark or flag grammar is...
