Opening document problem

This has been a minor annoyance for a few weeks now, I haven't found a solution and it has become a major annoyance. Let's suppose I'm working on Doc A and open existing Doc B. Doc B opens behind Doc A. This happens regardless of Doc A being previously saved or not (opening a new template does not p...

Spelling Dictionary Issues

Of late, I have found that using spell check is becoming useless. The number of misspelled words it doesn't catch is atrocious. I have taken to misspelling words just to see if it catches them and it doesn't . For professional and academic texts, this is unforgivable. Unforgivable that I don't stop ...

Sudden problem opening .docx files

I've been using NWP for a few years now, through several updates, currently on 2.0.4 on OS 10.6.8. Beginning yesterday, Nisus Pro won't open any docx files, crashing every single time I attempt this. Even for docx files previously opened and converted to rtf. I've attempted this repeatedly for sever...

Re: Word completion

Another possible bug or maybe it's just designed this way, but after I've added certain words to the user dictionary, they will not show up in auto-complete drop lists. I've noticed it is words which contain diacritics. Since the vast majority of my writing involve what are to an English speaker are...

Word completion

So another thing I'm puzzling over: Word Completions. I would swear to the fact that I tried this upon my trial version of Nisus and it worked, but now I'm questions if I did or not. In other software I'm using, the auto-complete for my frequently used words works fine. In Nisus, it is not. If I go ...

Re: Automatic Number Submenu

Thanks, Martin.


Other than a few minor things like this, I do love the way Nisus Express hovers between being stripped down and being fully loaded.

Well, that sounded a little weird, but there it is.

Re: Automatic Number Submenu

Here is a Nisus New File (.dot file) with wordcount inserted in the footer that you can use in the meantime. It should update wordcount in NWE. You can also copy the wordcount from this file and paste it in another document. Sweetness and light. This works. :) Hvala lupo... thank you very much.

Re: Automatic Number Submenu

There is a bug here, though not necessarily what you might expect. Those particular automatic numbers were intended to be for use in Nisus Writer Pro only. So really those menus should not show in Express at all. When I insert wordcount in NWP and then open the file in NWE and add more words, the w...

Re: Automatic Number Submenu

I have tried it with numerous documents—old, new, and even with the default template. I just don't have the option of using those three features (character/word/paragraph count). Frustrating. Especially if it isn't a problem encountered by others. Not sure what I'd be doing with my documents that wo...

Automatic Number Submenu

Curious problem to which I hope the solution is that I don't know what I'm doing. I'm trying to Insert the word count of a document into the footer of the page. I think it's supposed to work like this: Insert > Automatic Number > Word Count. The problem is that all three options in that submenu (Cha...

It was what I was asking. I feel a little sad that it doesn't.

Full Screen Mode Question

I'm using the trial version of Nisus Express right now to compare its functionality for my needs with my long-time use of Mellel and year-and-a-half with Scrivener. I love Mellel and cannot see ever abandoning it so long as it continues to serve my needs. I like Scrivener a lot but have had issues w...
