Re: Table of Contents shows same page number for all entries

Martin, thanks very much for your quick efforts. Even though I seem to have it fixed for this document, I'll probably make use of your solution as I'm completing two other books this month that will need formatted the same way. This is why I've used Nisus since 1989 -- a great application with great...

Re: Table of Contents shows same page number for all entries

OK. How come whenever I take my car to the shop, the problem goes away. "There was a weird sound there yesterday, I swear!" I just reopened the file (after I sent it via feedback, of course), and rebuilt the TOC using the same method I tried before, and it worked fine. The only thing I did different...

Re: Table of Contents shows same page number for all entries

Sorry for the delayed response. I've sent the file via the feedback method. (I've used Nisus since the late-80's, and I didn't know you had that feature :-) I'll post any resolution back here for others to see. By the way, the reason I wanted to keep it somewhat confidential, is it's a novel I'm abo...

Re: Table of Contents shows same page number for all entries

This was the first time I created the TOC, and the file was a Nisus file the whole time -- not an import from Word or something. Yes, I can send the file. How do I do that and keep the file somewhat confidential (not posted on this forum)? Thanks.

Table of Contents shows same page number for all entries

When I generate a TOC, the first chapter is correct (page 1), but all the rest of the chapters show the page number for the very last chapter, instead of the correct number. Anyone heard of this? Here's what it looks like (a partial example): Chapter 1 ..................................................

Re: Keyboard shortcut to go to end of line. EOL (or beginnin

I had this same thing happen to me this morning and found this thread. I don't know what causes it, but I may have clicked some weird key combination. In any case, a re-boot solved it. Maybe just logging out would work also, but I didn't try that. Thought I'd pass this along in case someone else fin...

Re: NWP Sluggish for a while after opening

It appears the fonts were the problem. I don't have a ton of fonts, but many of them are east Asian fonts, mainly Chinese, and I suppose those take time to render. Or perhaps one or more of them have some problems. Anyway, but turning off font rendering, NWP seems to run at its regular speed even wh...

NWP Sluggish for a while after opening

Having used Nisus since the late-80s (really!), I love it and it's always been my word processor of choice. However, there's a problem I've had for the past few versions that hasn't gone away. When I open the application and immediately start using a document, it's quite slow as though it's doing so...

Re: Glossary term at beginning of paragraph causes style change

Dang, that fixed it. There was also an unwanted ruler in there. Thanks.

Glossary term at beginning of paragraph causes style change

In NWP 1.3, when typing a new paragraph where the first word is a glossary term, as soon as the term expands, the paragraph changes to a single-spaced, non-indented paragraph, and a hard return is added. If the glossary term is anywhere else it works fine. My only workaround is to first type a space...

Re: Good-bye AW6

A late response to Sheamus' question: long documents aren't a problem. I just finished a 140,000 word novel using NWE and it worked perfectly.

Transpose Words Applescript

In the ancient days, WordPerfect had a "transpose words" command, where you put the cursor between two words, hit the command, and the two words would swap places. Does anyone know of a Perl or Applescript that would do this in NWE? I've been messing with Applescript for hours, but can't get it to d...

Spelling not working for one user account

OK, I'm baffled. We have a home computer with several accounts on it. NWE works fine on all the accounts except for on one of them, spelling doesn't work. The squiggly underlines don't show up and the regular spell check doesn't work. Here's what I've tried: -- made sure spell check was turned on in...

Disappearing Custom Icons

This isn't really an important issue, but it's one that's a little annoying. I have created custom icons for several documents that I use regularly. The documents are of several different file types, including spreadsheets, applescripts and nisus documents. All the custom icons remain with the assoc...
