Re: Rename... command not working in NW 2.1.1 beta

Thanks, Martin. You're absolutely right: "enter" fixes the change.

Drag-and-drop slow in NWP 2.1.1 beta

When I select a word, I have to click and hold for several seconds before NWP realizes I want to drag and drop it. Any way to speed it up?

Rename... command not working in NW 2.1.1 beta

When you try to rename an open file by using the File>Rename... command, everything appears to work until you click out of the new name. Then it reverts to the old name. If you rename by clicking the arrow to the right of the file name in the title bar, it works fine.

Re: I give up

Yes, go back to Microsoft Word. And after you've worked with it for awhile, see if you can get MS tech support (for which you'll pay) to tell you why, when you reopen a file, the cursor doesn't go back to where you left it. Or why you can't lock the horizontal scroll bar so that the text doesn't kee...

Dragon Dictate 2.0

I'm writing/editing a large book on NWP—the fifth I've done with this wonderful software—so my files are typically 30000 to 60000 words long. I recently tried using Dragon Dictate 2.0 with NWP, and just want to post a word of warning to other NWP users: don't. Not sure what's up, but here's what hap...

New feature request: faster text-color change

As I edit black text, I put changes in blue and questions for the author in red. The fastest way to do this is by opening the colors palette and clicking on the color I want, then clicking back on the text before typing. It occurred to me today that it would save a step if I could just click once on...

Re: Thesaurus doesn't appear in Snow Leopard

Scratch that. Got it to work, then followed the advice here to be sure to use the new Thesaurus. Now it doesn't work any more, so the search is still on.

Thesaurus doesn't appear in Snow Leopard

The Nisus Thesaurus no longer appears in the Services menu now that I've upgraded to Snow Leopard. Anybody know how to get it back?
