Hardware Reqs NW 3 vs 2.1

Hi-- any experience on NW3 performance on older Macs? I'm using a 2012 model MacBook Air with 4 gigs RAM. NW 2 performs like a speed champ for me; I would not want to give up any of that responsiveness upon upgrading Nisus.

Thanks for any input!

Thanks! Michael

Re: Special Character Palette -- NW2

Thank you Martin. The issue is that when I click on a symbol inside the palette there is no tactile feedback that I have clicked, i.e. I want to insert say dollar. When I hover over dollar that line does not highlight and when I click on dollar there is no indication that the click has registered. T...

Yes, exactly! I want to correct mispellings without removing my hands from the keyboard, viz. alt-F7; up/down arrow keys to highlight the correct spelling from the spell check contextual menu; enter to make the correction; ctl-cmd-z to return the cursor to where I had been typing before noticing the...

Thank you for your reply, Martin. Obviously these are not huge features, just a couple of tidbits that I find useful when working in MS Word. I'm surely no technical wiz, but if Microsoft can implement them, the task's not impossible. That's why I wondered whether NWPro might, with a reasonable amou...

Can Nisus do this?

Hi, Could someone kindly advise whether NW Pro can replicate, either out of the box, or by easily created macro, two teeny Word shortcuts that I've grown to rely on heavily. 1) Trigger contextual spelling menu from the keyboard (In Word, Alt-F7) 2) move cursor to last 3 or so locations, again via th...
