Re: Desired NWP1.2 Features

Better file conversion and file reading from other apps would be good. NWP does a passable job now, but it isn't great. One of the biggest problems for me is with tables. Even opening an RTF made in Word results in lost table dimensions in NWP. Opening of DOC files usually results in a lot of style ...

Re: superscript, subscript, and line spacing

Just a quick (albeit delayed) follow up to my original post. It would seem that a fix for the scaling of super/subscript bug in NWP should not be too hard. 3 weeks ago, I asked the developer of the simple (but very nice) OS X text editor Bean if he had any plan to overcome the basic problem with sup...

Re: superscript, subscript, and line spacing

Elbrecht, did you even read my post? You seem to be having a conversation with yourself about how wonderful Unicode is. What has anything that you have said got to do with the bug I am talking about in NWP on a standard Mac? Get a Mac, install NWP, launch NWP, open a new document, type more than 1 l...

Re: superscript, subscript, and line spacing

Elbrecht, you are missing my point. You are stating what you think should be used. I know what Unicode is, I am familiar with the advantages that you listed, and that there are many good tools for working with Unicode. However, what should be used, or what one can use in existing word processors, is...

Re: superscript, subscript, and line spacing

Elbrecht, true super/subscript figures would be great, but a 'better' hack than the current one would be fine for me (and I would guess most) in the meantime. I am talking from a practical standpoint here, not a philosophical one. In practical terms, scaling hacks are far from over (regardless of wh...

Re: superscript, subscript, and line spacing

Mark, it sounds like you have a lot of clever ways to get around this. Useful stuff. But, let's be honest, none of these clever work-arounds should be necessary. The inability of NWP to handle superscripts and subscripts correctly is a bug. No other similarly feature-rich Word processor has this pro...

Re: superscript, subscript, and line spacing

Yes, I went with this same approach (i.e. setting the Normal style to Fixed and basing my other styles on the this) after my first post on this. It works well and does give nice uniform text layout. Still, using Multiple spacing allows everything to be much more flexible and involves far less adjust...

Re: superscript, subscript, and line spacing

Thanks for the reply. I understand the issue with the Apple text engine. TextEdit has a huge issue with super/subscript because of this. From what I can see though, NWP is doing something above the basic Apple Text Engine function. NWP is scaling down the character size in super/subscript, so that t...

superscript, subscript, and line spacing

Hi all, I am trying out Nisus Writer Pro. I am loving it, except for how it handles sub/superscript. NWP scales the character size, but not enough to leave 'multiple' line spacing intact. I found a post on here saying that line spacing will remain intact is it is set to 'Fixed' instead of 'Multiple'...
