Second line indent after Soft return and Sierra

Hello, I just updated to Sierra and now my old Nisus documents are wrong formatted: The indent after a soft return is ignored. Before Sierra the first line after a soft return was also indented just like the second line. Now the first line after a soft return starts like after a hard return from the...

Small problem with big document

Hello, I am working on an 800 pages text document. It needs on my computer about 2,5 minutes to open it. Therefore I usually didn't close it in evening but let it open until the next day to go on working. But since some weeks this is no more possible. If I enter text the next day I see the spinning ...

Good hint. I checked it too and saw that my old Jenson does not have a soft hyphen. OK, now I understand.

Thank you all for help

Re: Soft Hyphen

Hi –  what way do you enter Soft-Hyphen? Did you try via PopChar – the Soft-Hyphen glyph seems to be contained in the font, or? HE Added it through Nisus menu "Insert > Special Characters > Dashes and Hyphens > SoftHyphen". I don't have PopChar. I don't know wether the Soft-hyphen glyph is containe...

Re: Soft Hyphen

But I'd simply try highlighting that soft-hyphen, maybe including a bit of the surrounding text, then clicking in the font menu and deliberately choosing Adobe Jenson Pro from that. It should change, and the font box should turn black. Already tried it. If I select the surrounding the entry in the ...

Soft Hyphen

In the example attached below one can see two normal hyphens (automatic hyphenation) and a soft hyphen which was necessary in that position to avoid a wrong hyphenation (German hyphenation ist still not reliable at all). This third hyphen is obviously taken from another font. The text is Adobe Jenso...

Re: LibreOfficeImporter hanging

The solution of Hamid “Unchecking 'Load file Importers in the background after Nisus Writer Starts'" works also perfect for me. The amok running LibreOfficeImporter never came back. Thanks to Hamid!

Re: Initials

Hello Ben, thanks for your suggestions. Of course it would be better to maintain "live" letters. I tried to insert the initials not as jpeg but directly as pdf. The result was, that Nisus does not treat them as graphics but as normal text letters. Your second proposal is also not practicable because...

Re: Initials

Today I learned, that the English name of these "initials" is indeed Drop Caps (as you wrote). Didn't know that word before. Yes, I made it as graphic. I wrote the desired capitals in a Nisus doc with 55 point and saved it as PDF. Then opened the pdf with GraphicConverter in 300 dpi, cut out a lette...

Re: Initials

I think, there does not exist a printed edition of Joseph Conrad with additional space before paragraphs. In print a new paragraph is marked by indentation, not by additional space. I prefer 3 lines for the height of the initials, but that's not important, others may make 4,5,6 ... lines. Enclosed a...

Re: Initials

Very nice, never saw before "shape metrics". One never stops learning.

But now line 5 should also have the same space, then it is perfect.

Re: Initials

Oh, nice idea! Didn't try it. Seems to be a little bit tricky with the spacing of the lines (in your example line 4 has an additional space, what is not wanted). I made it now by inserting graphics of the big letters. It worked fine and it wasn't as complicated as I feared. Enclosed an example how i...

Re: Initials

No, does not help. My desired initial does not stand on the first line. I fear, the only way to accomplish that task is to insert the initials as graphics, what is a little bit complicated (I have 20 chapters which should each beginn with initials).

But anyway, thanks for thinking about my problem
