Re: Workflow for academic writing?

I have Scrivener, Bookends, and NWP (and Mellel for my Hebrew work). This link describes how to set up Scrivener and Bookends. http://tacet.wordpress.com/2012/06/21/using-scrivener-with-bibliographic-software/ Thanks! :) I assume you think Bookends works well, too? :) (BTW: Doesn't NWP play well wi...

Re: Workflow for academic writing?

I don't use Scrivener myself, I use Ulysses. However I've read that EndNote can be used with Scrivener in an automated fashion and here is a website that describes how to set it up: http://theplan.co.uk/scrivener-endnote-crib-sheet/ Personally, for longer writing projects I write entirely in Ulysse...

Workflow for academic writing?

Hi! I'm about to start writing on a lengthy academic paper. (I tried searching this, but couldn't find posts that covered it, feel free to redirect me.) The thing is, I'm wondering about the best workflow. References/notes For the references/notes, to keep track of authors and books, how do you guys...

Re: Language when pasting

Thanks! As always: Great support! :) (I also understand why making a Windows version is not very attractive, but I just had to ask, as Nisus is the only word processor I actually like, and that I don't find annoying ... To bad there ain't nothing like Wine for Windows, running Mac apps on MSWin, ful...

Re: Language when pasting

And BTW: What would it take to get a Windows version of Nisus? I have to do some work on Windows these days, and it's painful to not have my fav. word processor available ... :)

Re: Language when pasting

Ah, thanks. I have a bit of a challenge then, since I prefer English for interface and such, but mainly copy/paste Norwegian ... I'll consider the text only paste (but then I loose some nice colors) ... ;)

Language when pasting

Hi! What controls language when pasting? I have a document I'm working on. All the text is in Norwegian. I copy some Norwegian text from another program and paste in NWP. The pasted text shows up as U.S. English and all the pasted text it marked as wrong by the spellchecker. How can I control this? :)

Re: Spreadsheet — which one + integration?

I know this is an old thread. But right now, it would be nice to integrate a spreadsheet table in a NWP document. I have Tables, Numbers and Excel. Which Spreadsheet app should I use to get a dynamic embedding/linkback version of the table in Nisus, and how would I do that in Nisus? (Drag&drop, Inse...

Re: Template collection(s)?

Yes, exactly! I would love some nice font/color combinations, with good defaults for numbered lists, bullet lists etc. It would also be nice with template for folders, tri-fold brochures etc. too. (Like in Pages where you just drop in your pics and changes some text and titles.) But the main thing f...

Template collection(s)?

Hi! My use of NWP has changed slightly, now I need to create more fancy documents (letters, brochures, folders etc.). (So far I've mostly just used it for my own academic papers, teaching notes and simple letters.) So, I was wondering, is there an official template pack or something? (Maybe there wa...

Text transformation :) to smiley disappeared ...

All of a sudden a colon parenthesis is not automagically converted to a smiley anymore, and I can't remember having changed any prefs or my template ... I thought this effect was just a part of OS X's builtin text transformation feature? Any hints? (I don't like many transformations, but this one is...

Rectangular selection and edit

Hi! I just found the option to do rectangular selections (option+mouse), and I was thrilled, as I need to replace some text on many lines. And I've been using the similar option in TextMate while programming. There it's really simple: Select the text, press option to make it rectangular (without tou...

Re: Bug or feature: Tools tray not updating after selection

I was just about to send it, but now it seemed to work again. I did of course try quitting and restarting the app last time too, so I don't know why it suddenly works again ... anyway ... I guess I should wait sending anything until I can reproduce the error/until the issue resurfaces (if it does) ....

Re: Bug or feature: Tools tray not updating after selection

It's all the controls, both columns and such, text formatting and everything within the drawer. It was stuck in section 1 no matter where I clicked ... (I made a new same page section break.)
