Re: Help needed: palette out of reach

I’m sorry but my first reply gave bad and incomplete advice. In diagnosing the problem where Nisus Writer fails to ensure palettes are on screen, I realized that the palette origins are stored separately in a local settings file that is NOT in the sync settings folder. The reason is that users might...

Re: Window objects

Philip is right: you can programmatically position document windows using the Nisus macro language, but not palette windows. Macros have no access to palettes.

Re: Help needed: palette out of reach

I'm sorry you're having trouble with an out of view palette. This is something Nisus Writer shouldn't allow, and I'm surprised to hear this: Quitting and relaunching NWP doesn't help. I consider that a bug and we'll take a look. Nisus Writer should force the palettes to be accessible on screen durin...

Re: Gutter Width Slider in Fullscreen Mode

Hello Michael: I'm sorry you're having trouble with the Full Screen gutter width slider. It looks like the slider is working incorrectly. It will adjust the gutter, but only after a delay. You can force an update of the gutter if you trigger certain other UI updates, eg: zoom the text in or out, sho...

Re: erratic mouse

This is a problem that was reported to us once before, a long time ago, for version 2.x. The cause of the problem did not lie with Nisus Writer itself, but rather seemed to be triggered by an external monitor (ie: an extra screen). Do you have such a setup?

Re: Permissions error in running macro

The problem here is sandboxing . Basically the system (macOS) denies Nisus Writer and your macros access to any files, unless you first interact with them naturally (eg: using a file dialog). You can fix the problem by adding code to your macro that ensures access to the file: $filePath = "/Users/vi...

Re: wonky font palette

Thanks for your feedback, but I'm not sure I understand. I'd like to learn more so we can address this, if there's a problem here. When you say "push the fonts out of view" what do you mean exactly? How is it that the fonts are no longer visible? Perhaps you could post a screenshot (or send one to u...

Re: Sudden reversion to Polish

As Peter said, it sounds like you're using version 2.x and accidentally changed your Language preferences so the "Interface Language" is now Polish. You'll want to change it back to English, then quit and relaunch Nisus Writer:

How do I use Nisus Writer Pro 3 alongside version 2?

In some situations you might want to use both Nisus Writer Pro version 3 and version 2. Perhaps if you want to evaluate version 3 before you purchase an upgrade from version 2. Using two versions of Nisus Writer at the same time is possible and relatively easy. The quick overview is that you just ne...

But it would be nice if Nisus could have the label display "Start at" in the first section, instead of the greyed out "restart".
That's a very good idea, thanks Philip! I'll file it as a potential improvement.

Re: Where Is the Upgrade Package?

Basically what Vance said is true, but to reiterate and perhaps clarify: 1. The Nisus Writer Pro 3 archive or installer (.zip or .pkg) is very likely in your Downloads folder. But that depends on your web browser and settings. You might also look in the Trash or Desktop. 2. If you select Nisus Write...

Re: List formatting

Those are good and clever ideas, thanks Philip! To build off Philip's contributions, I'd probably adjust the macro a bit, so it's not so specific to any particular paragraph style. I could imagine myself wanting to turn off a list item's underline for other styles (eg: Heading 2, etc). I'll attach a...

Re: Text colors change in Nisus 2 and 3

Thank you all for sharing your experiences and providing some more information. It's certainly possible that your macOS system version is a factor here. It's also possible that Nisus Writer Pro's behavior has changed here, even though our code involved hasn't changed. When you choose the "Red" color...

Re: Case Sensitivity?

We could probably relax the case sensitive nature of some macro aspects. There's little reason to require "Document.active" and disallow "document.Active", or to cause Philip annoyance when he misremembers ".expandedFilepath" instead of ".expandedFilePath". Is this what's bothering you? However it's...

Re: slow open dialog in 3.0

That sounds like a Mac system problem. Nisus Writer really doesn't have much control over the open file dialog. It's specifically locked down by Apple for security reasons (to implement app sandboxing). Nisus Writer only provides some of the ancillary options. That said there might be some factor sp...
