Re: Is LinkBack dead?

[...] OmniGraffle works fine. Changes made in OmniGraffle are reflected in Nisus. If OmniGraffle is open and you close a Nisus document with an object from OmniGraffle in it, you even get a message in OmniGraffle telling you that the Nisus document was closed. This shows that both applications are ...

Re: Is LinkBack dead?

I use Lineform for drawing simple things and use it with LinkBack in Nisus Writer Pro. It works, but not that well, with no automatic updating. So yes, I think Linkback is a nice idea, but hasn't made it, at least not for me. I would prefer the drawing capabilities Nisus used to have. Lineform doesn...

Re: Spelling Dictionary Issues

You can remove/delete the ~/Library/Spelling/LocalDictionary file which contains your personal spelling dictionary as a way to sort of reset the spelling system?

Re: Save changes doesn't work in Find/Replace window

Saving in Find/Replace window is possibly more dangerous (especially without backup files), so it has never bothered me that Nisus behaves different in that respect than e.g. TextEdit, and I always have accepted it as intended and desired behavior from Nisus.

Re: How to open a .txt file with the tool-drawer closed?

I think you can set this somehow in the Preferences -> New File -> Advanced -> Plain Text Template.

Re: Book on Nisus Writer Pro

Ahoi Joe, have been using your book with Nisus, which was very helpful indeed and interesting to read about the history of Nisus. My most appreciated topic was the PowerFind and macro combination possibilities. Now I use a self edited/extended version of Quinons PowerFind Pro Reference: http://www2....

Re: iPad compatible NWP?

By now, you all know that iOS5 does NOT support rtf. Which I find utterly ridiculous generally speaking, but it makes sense if you wish your clients to buy Pages. I'll try the export trick. Maybe it will make me use the iPad more. It's great for reading, but it's really disappointing for writing mo...

I doubt it, because in 1996, when I made a portage at Verla when making a canoe trip there,
I was using Nisus 4.1.6 or so... and the sign was the same :)

Re: How to clear recently used fonts list?

I guess typing the command in terminal is longer than opening the plist file and deleting those redundant fonts. copy and just paste defaults delete com.nisus.NisusWriter com.nisus.lastUsedFonts in the terminal prompt worked for me, as integrating it in a shell script that I made for cleaning up af...

Does PlainText also sync via e-mail and iTunes?
And how does the advertizing work?

Re: NW for iPad?

I was (am) interested in having something more mobile (and a lot cheaper!) than a Macbook Air [...] But it is! If you use 'Notes' you can work with text. Notes is not that bad but the (yellow) background is ugly, but I am getting used to it already. File naming is odd but it does have its advantage...
