Re: Broken Bookends Unscan in Nisus 2.0

I'm very glad that you are woking on this with Sonny Software. In the meantime I thought I should add a cautionary note for users of NWP 2 and Bookends. I'm seeing another problem with the communication between the two applications. Not all cited references in a text are showing up in the reference ...

Just in case another data point is helpful, I'm seeing this too.

Re: Cross-reference to list style in image caption?

For anyone following this: rmark was kind enough to follow up on this by email. It turns out that I was right that list style instances in captions do not show up as potential cross-reference targets. (And this is a general limitation on text and callout boxes, of which image captions are a subset.)...

Sure. There's no great hurry.

Many thanks for looking into this.

Re: Cross-reference to list style in image caption?

Ok. Sending it now. Sorry if the description is opaque. The problem is simple: I can't create a cross-reference to a list-style item when that list style item is itself in an image caption. To recreate the problem: 1) Create a list style for image captions, as on p 49 of User's Guide. 2) Insert an i...

Cross-reference to list style in image caption?

Hello. I'm having a look at Nisus 2.0. There are lots of lovely new features. The automatic production of clickable TOCs in pdf output is particularly great. One problem. I can't seem to cross-refer to a list style item in an image caption. I've created a list style for figures, and instances of it ...

See this thread . Those are table of contents fields. From what Martin said in the other thread it seems that they are exported properly by NWP, but not displayed properly by Word. I think this is not the fault of Nisus Writer. The problem is with Word, partly, but also, I suspect, with rtf as a fil...

The facility for developers to put hyperlinks in pdfs is provided in OS X 10.4 (Tiger) through a Cocoa framework called pdfkit. I don't think many have used it for that yet, though.

And about XML: it is not a file format, but a language, so the fact that Papyrus and Word 2007 (and Mellel) use XML formats doesn't mean that they use the same format, or that any of them can read the others' files. Still, it should be easier to write converters between XML file formats than between...

MS doesn't "own" RTF except insofar as it is by far the biggest player and it dictates terms to the others, change RTF at will to suit itself. I meant it literally. They really do own and control the format: they bought it from DEC around 1990. I am not certain that rtf supports absolutely every fe...

The problem, of course, is whether this is included in RTF or is a proprietary MS thing in Word. While tracking changes would be useful in NW, it would be 20 times more useful if the NW tracking could show up in MS Word and Word tracking could show up in NW. Pretty much every Word feature is suppor...

Where 'loaded' means 'present in RAM'? So you can install and use NWP on two machines as long as you don't use it on both simultaneously? Technically, (if I am interpreting this correctly) this means that you have to quit NWP on your laptop before firing it up on your desktop computer, rather than j...

So either Word isn't implementing rtf as it should, or there are still problems with NWP's implementation of rtf. My guess is that NWP is at fault. My guess is that it's a bit of both. Rtf is a weird kind of standard, as you might expect, given that it is proprietary and owned by Microsoft. Also th...

NWP does a pretty good job with Word documents. Even Word isn't 100% interoperable with Word: different versions, different OSes, or just different fonts can all result in missing charcters, different pagination etc. One missing feature that would cause you problems if you rely on it is commenting/t...

Thank you Martin. That's all very clear. It's really good to get an answer from someone in Nisus -- it shows that you are looking out for the users of your software. Somehow I'm not surprised Word doesn't honour its own preference settings. Perhaps, like so many other bugs, it will be fixed in Word ...
