Re: Black on black formatting error

I randomly experienced what sounds like the same bug: my text editing area's background color incorrectly switched to black text on a black background. In my situation the causal event was that the file was modified externally, i.e. by an app or process other than Nisus Writer. That can trigger an a...

Re: Ruby Function (Phonetic Guide)?

Hello Alex: thank you for purchasing Nisus Writer! You are correct that there is currently no support for Ruby/furigana in Nisus Writer. It's a feature that is requested often enough, so hopefully we'll be able to add it for some future version. I'll be sure to add your vote that we consider it. Tha...

Re: Bookends 14.0

Bookends 14 did indeed make an internal change that requires other compatible apps to be updated. We are currently testing a new version of Nisus Writer Pro that includes such accommodations. We hope to have it ready for public release soon. In the meantime, if you updated to Bookends 14 and need im...

Re: Black on black formatting error

That's really bizarre. Even if light/dark mode activation was somehow broken on your Mac or Nisus Writer, I would expect it to be fully in effect or not at all. I don't know why only your background color would be wrong. I would expect you to see white text on a black background if Dark Mode were in...

Re: Black on black formatting error

Your settings look to be in order Jeff. But Vanceone's suggestion to toggle some of the appearance mode options is a good one. Please let us know if explicitly choosing "Light Mode" or checkmarking "Text editing areas always use Light Mode" helps. One other question: if you switch your problematic d...

Re: Black on black formatting error

You don't have to compare all your settings Jeff. You'll only need to check this on the problematic Mac: 1. Open Nisus Writer's Appearance preferences. 2. At the bottom under "Colors" select the "Document Views" category. 3. Check the colors for "Draft background" and "Page color" to verify that the...

Re: Black on black formatting error

I just emailed you back directly, but I'll post my reply here too, in case anyone else is curious or encounters this problem: I've taken a look at your file and I see nothing abnormal about it. The black borders/boxes simply don't show over here on my Mac. I also see no evidence of any page or parag...

Re: Black on black formatting error

Thanks for the screenshots Jeff. I'm not sure what caused the black-on-black text, but maybe it has something to do with Dark Mode. Do you use Dark Mode or automatic appearance mode switching? That could be a factor. As for the black box in your screenshot, that looks like a document section border,...

Re: Black on black formatting error

That sounds very strange, and it's certainly unexpected. You should not see such formatting changes when passing documents between Macs, or even between Nisus Writer Express and Nisus Writer Pro. Is there a possibility that you used any other software to open or process the file? One of the most com...

Here are some examples of such characters: ā ō n̅ You can easily enter such characters in Nisus Writer and...

Re: Why is NWP so painfully slow?

Thanks for sending your document. I sent you a direct email reply, but I'll also reply here for completeness: The problem seems to be related to Split View and Page View. For your document's particular saved state I can alleviate the slowdowns simply by switching the top split view to Draft View. Ho...

Re: Why is NWP so painfully slow?

I am working on a document which currently has over 54,000 words across 153 pages and depending on where I am in the document I can start typing a few words then sit and wait multiple seconds per letter for my typing to catch up. The document does not contain bookmarks (none), but it does have a fa...
