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...

Re: Stopping Cro Magnon man

Cro-Magnon man must be stopped! :P I assume you are referring to the left side of the status bar, as shown at the bottom of every document window: statusbar.png That indicator icon appears for any documents that include tracked changes anywhere in the document text. 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...

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

I'm really glad to hear that you're enjoying Nisus Writer Pro 3 so far, but I am sorry that spellchecking is misbehaving. It does seem like this is probably a new bug in version 3. Closing and opening the file does not change the condition, those same random words appear with the red dotted underlin...

Re: Page Break -shortcut (cmd + Enter) no longer works?

Nisus Writer Pro 3 did remove the default keyboard shortcut for Insert > Page Break. The old default shortcut confused too many users: break.png Over the years we received a lot of questions asking us about that symbol and how to type it. Þorvarður's suggestion to customize this (or any) keyboard sh...

Re: new document opening when others opened

Thanks for that tidbit Simeon. I'm not sure what to make of it, since I could not reproduce the problem on 10.13.

Well, if you're happy with the workaround of disabling new documents on activation, let's not investigate this matter further.

Martin’s right. I seem to have misread the problem and tried to solve the wrong thing.
All the same your macro code did turn up a bug. The list style really is very stubborn. It doesn't update or even show correctly in the Style View until you close and reopen the file. I'll file a bug, thank you!

Re: Changing the numbering scheme for footnotes

Philip's suggestion to replace the style is a good one, but I don't think replacing any list styles will accomplish the original goal. To update the footnote reference numbering format (1,2,3 vs a,b,c) you want to instead replace the document's Note style. A macro like this should do the trick: $mac...

Re: new document opening when others opened

I'm glad that you found a way to workaround the problem so you don't encounter the unwanted new document windows, though it's still a misbehavior. If you're opening an existing document then no blank document window should be created. From what you described it sounds like the problem could occur wh...

Re: new document opening when others opened

Hello Simeon, I'm sorry you're having trouble, but I wasn't able to reproduce this problem. Let me ask you some questions. 1. I assume you have your Nisus Writer preferences configured so that a new blank document is created whenever you activate the app like so: new_doc.png Is that correct? 2. How ...
