selection history (jump to prior editing locations)???

Thank you for the free upgrade to v1.3 -- lots of neat new stuff. One of the features is "Also added was a selection history (allowing users to jump to prior editing locations)" I cannot find this -- looked in menus and in help file. :? Where is it, and where are its instructions? Thanks! BRL...

This very problem had bothered me until I by accident discovered the LOOK UP IN DICTIONARY command, available by right clicking on any word (I use a 2-button mouse) or from the services line in the Nisus... menu. This command opens the Apple OSX dictionary program linked to NWP. It is a MUCH bigger ...

Thanks for the links.

I do have WordStar 5. I did some experimenting, and found I can do some reformatting in WS5 that is not possible in 4, then re-save each file in ws5 format, which should then be ingestible by MacLink.

Thanks again.

Need a FILE CONVERSION utility: WordStar 4 to RTF

Hard to believe, but before adopting Nisus Writer on my first Mac in April 2006, my word processor was (and sometimes still is) WordStar 4 -- ever since 1984. And I am a professional writer. So... I have a lot of WordStar 4 files I would like to be able to work on in NW. Simple files I can output as...

editing html as plain txt - works in express but not in pro

I switched from NWE to NWPro when pro came out -- LOVE IT. But... one of the tasks that is easy in Express, seems impossible in Pro. At least I have not figured out how to do it. I often edit simple html blocks (e.g. ebay item descriptions, updates to simple text-heavy web pages) as plain text files...

Thanks!

I downloaded PRINTFOLIO last night, but so far it does NOT look promising.

Avery Label templates in NWE???

Hi Is there an easy way (or failing that, a hard way) to import Avery Label templates into NWE? Avery's website says that Avery templates are included in OSX Tiger, but I can't find them. Have you seen them? http://www.avery.com/us/software/index.jsp The templates on the Avery website are all for Mi...

Thanks for the suggestions and links. They shorten my wish list -- always a good thing. The "Reformat" command in WordServices is just like "join" only better, since it also removes > characters from email text. The "Form Paragraph" macro also works well. * I had forgotten about the "menu keys" pref...

A short wish list

Newbie here. I've searched for years for a WRITING (not page layout) program that fully implements RTF -- other than Classical Text Editor, which is splendid, but overkill. Nisus WE comes closest of any I have seen, and is one reason I bought my first Mac this April (I'm now on my third, as the firs...
