Actually if the styles/attributes applied to your text do not specify a language then the system language is used, not the language set in your New Document preferences (Nisus New File). We thought this would be a helpful setting, but perhaps it just confuses the matter. What do you think? I don't ...

So you would have four buttons that were just buttons and a fifth one that was a pop up menu? Maybe I am just missing something but I am having trouble seeing this as an improvement over the old system with just one pop up menu. Because it's faster to click a button than to choose an item from a me...

If you don't mind the drawbacks you can still use the Multilingual dictionary from within Express. Just set the dictionary for all the languages you use to "Multilingual". You can do this by: 1. Choose "Preferences..." from the Nisus Writer Express application menu. 2. Switch to the "Languages" tab...

Multilingual spelling?

I sometimes write documents that include several languages, and to get spelling to work I have to keep changing the language of the spell checker, which can get a bit cumbersome. Now, in other cocoa apps that use the system spell checker there is a great option to set the language to "Multilingual",...

Actually, I don't use the toobar at all and rely instead on keyboard commands and the tool drawer. Ditto. even though I do think toolbars can be useful sometimes, I think they are a bit overused. First, I totally fail to see the point of having things like "copy", "paste" and "print" on a toolbar, ...

Re: Quick Fix

I'm using Nisus 2.0.1, OS X 10.2.8 on an iMac. I turn off Quick Fix under Preferences, and the damn thing keeps fixing things. Any idea how I can get it to leave my immortal prose alone? -Speireag. Indeed, I have noticed this too. It brings on a scary deja vu from my struggle with making MS Word do...

Can I ask that such automatic bulleting and numbering is implemented carefully? One of the reasons I've started use Nisus rather than Word is because Word thinks it knows better than I do what I want to type, whether it is insisting on capitalising the first letter of words at the start of a senten...

I have seen this behavior, too. Sometimes, just toggling "show invisibles" is enough to remove the bizarre blank pages and stretched lines. I haven't tried to print a document to see if it is purely a screen refresh issue or if the blank pages print as well. Well, this is even weirder... I just tri...

Re: Major problems with 2.0

Here's the worst one -- and it's totally undermining my confidence in the software: every time I open my new (70-page) document, I get a different page count. When I (slowly) scroll through the document, I discover that it's randomly filled with mostly blank pages. Several pages have only one line ...

NWE 2 - First impressions...

First: congratulations! It is a major upgrade from 1.x and the overall feeling is just sweet. I think I may finally be able to dump word altogether. Now, some impressions after my first day of work: - It looks beautiful... not unimportant if I am supposed to stare at it the whole day... - I like the...

Doesn't this kind of suggest that it might be worth considering to change the default shortcut?
