Re: Install

I'm glad the sandbox reset fixed the problem, and your templates and settings are intact now. You should be able to customize your New File header, margins, styles, etc, now that Nisus Writer can maintain access to your template file. I'm very sorry for all the confusion and trouble. It's really not...

Re: Install

I'm sorry you're having so much trouble Yohanan. Your experience is definitely not expected. From what you've described it sounds like Nisus Writer is can't access your template file every time you quit and relaunch the app. It also seems like maybe autosave is having trouble writing changes to disk...

Re: Install

I'm very happy to help! Thank you for the clarification. It sounds like you just want to customize the New File template a bit beyond what's offered by our controls in the preferences. That shouldn't be too difficult. Basically what you want to do is open your Nisus New File template for editing. On...

Re: Install

It sounds like your general approach is correct. That is, it's perfectly normal to establish a Document Manager folder for Nisus Writer in a location like ~/Documents/Nisus Documents. But from your screenshots something might be amiss. Normally when you see gibberish file name suffixes like that it ...

Re: hyphenate not working

Steve's suggestion is a good one. If you have a document with private content you'd rather not share with us, you can first redact it. Instead of scrambling text manually, we also offer a Redaction Macro that does a more thorough job. The macro tried to scramble text in such a way that layout isn't ...

Re: Nisus 6.0.3 on 9 - Syriac

Hello, We're happy to give you some advice on this process. It's not entirely simple as there are a few potential roadblocks, but it's a very good idea to modernize your father's work while you can. You never know when an old Mac will stop working, and you don't want his work to remain stranded in n...

Re: Sudden shrinking of Page Zoom to 1%

I'm sorry that you ran into this problem Sparks. The good news is that you should no longer need to manually correct the zoom for this trackpad problem. We just released an update for Nisus Writer Pro that fixes the problem.

Re: hyphenate not working

One question before we get too deep in diagnosing the problem: what language is applied to your text? Languages in Nisus Writer work like other formatting in that each bit of text in your document can have a different language applied. If you want to have French spellchecking and hyphenation, you mu...

Re: Pasting text with bullets into email programs

Your screenshots from Dropbox didn't appear, but your description of the problem is clear enough. The cause of this bug is Apple Mail. Or more probably, the problem is an underlying framework like WebKit that is used by Apple Mail (and other apps like Airmail). You can verify this by creating a list...

Re: Sudden shrinking of font to 1% using MacBook Air

I'm sorry you encountered this bad behavior with document zoom. It is indeed a problem with accidental touchpad activation within Nisus Writer, if you brush the pad in certain ways. We plan to fix the problem in the next software update. In the meantime you'll have to manually correct the zoom, sorr...

Re: incorrect soft-wrap position

The problem here is actually the system line wrapping rules and how they affect quoted material. The issue affects text when quotes and parentheses are adjacent like so: Line one with "quoted material" (followed by parenthesized text) In situations like this the last word of the quoted text is force...

Unfortunately there's not much we can do about these issues until the makers of our forum software package (phpBB) releases an update that fixes the bugs. We're using the latest version of phpBB.
