Sudden shrinking of font to 1% using MacBook Air

I've come across a new problem I've never seen before that happens repeatedly when I'm writing in Nisus Writer Express on a 2017 Macbook Air running 10.13.6. Accidentally hitting the touchpad in certain ways suddenly shrinks the font size to near invisibility. The first few time the font seemed to v...

Re: File icons changed

Thanks for the suggestion of booting up in safe mode, which got my Nisus icons back. Note that to get to safe mode you have to shut down, then start up; you can't just reboot into safe mode.

Re: File icons changed

Thanks for the suggestion of Onyx, but rebuilding the Launch Services database didn't accomplish anything. All the .rtf files saved by Nisus Writer Pro still show Microsoft Word 2011 icons, and after rebuilding the Launch Services database they opened with Microsoft Word 2011. I was able to change t...

File icons changed

Something has gone wonky with my Nisus Writer Pro files on my Mac running 11.11 (El Capitan). It looks like the icons for most rtf files I created with Nisus Writer Pro have the icon for Word .doc files, although they retain their .rtf designations. I went to Get Info and tried to set those .rtf doc...

Change tracking interchange with Word

I typically write RTF files in NWPro and exchange them with editors and colleagues, many of whom work in Word. When they use change tracking, they sometimes keep the file in RTF format, which I have set to open in NWPro. On occasion those files can be horribly messy, and I just received one that see...

Re: 2.0.7 is last intended release for 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

As memory serves, I think the last figures I saw for overall Mac OS usage were around 15% still on 10.6, and for most of us (I am one) that's because of some combination of the loss of Rosetta, interface issues, and other software-related problems. For me, it's not so much that I need to continue us...

Re: BUG? Copying Hyperlink from Nisus Writer Pro to Apple Ma

This is weird. I opened the document, and tried pasting two links other than the one I first tried. They both worked. Then I tried again the one that I had tried before, and it did not work. I took screen shots, but they are too big to upload here (I am hitting a 100-kByte limit), so I clipped them ...

BUG? Copying Hyperlink from Nisus Writer Pro to Apple Mail

I inserted hyperlinks in a few places in an RTF document. Now I am trying to copy those hyperlinks and insert them into Apple Mail, and I can't get it to work. I read the instructions and found that clicking on the link with CONTROL down did produce a pop-up menu with an option to copy link. But wha...

Re: Possible bug in 2.0.5 with font sizes

As a user, the change in how font sizes behaved when I try to change them with the arrows felt like a bug. I had been using that and did not immediately notice the change in behavior until it became problematic. It isn't intuitive - at least to me - to have the displayed number completely detached f...

Re: BUG in NWP 2.0.3 - page preview in print dialog box is w

It's not quite that simple in my tests. Viewing files with headers and footers, the scaling problem does not show up with magnification of 100%, but does appear with other magnifications, both larger than smaller. The display is anchored on the lower left corner, it's clipped on top and right if it'...

Re: BUG in NWP 2.0.3 - page preview in print dialog box is w

I did a bit more detective work and think I found why some people are seeing the thumbnails correctly and others aren't. I don't have any graphics in any of the Nisus RTF files I checked, but I have paginated some and have not paginated others. Those that I have inserted headers and footers on using...

BUG in NWP 2.0.3 - page preview in print dialog box is wrong

I downloaded 2.0.3 earlier today, and just tried to print to my Brother HL-2140 printer. The preview showed in the print dialog box (attached) immediately caught my eye. It shows the page to be printed cropped off on the top and right, but the page does not show that way in Page View. Fortunately, i...

Bottom of Save As box off screen on laptop - workaround

When I do a "Save As" NWE displays a large box showing possible locations. That works fine on my desktop running OSX 10.4.11 on a display with a 1680x1050 pixel display. However, when I run NWE on my MacBook running 10.5.6 on a display with 1280x800 resolution, the bottom part of the dialog box -- i...

Re: missing custom document icons with NWE 3.3.1

I just checked the document icon, and using NWE on a PowerPC mac running 10.4.11 I don't see any signs of type on the large icons. Just a white page with a folded over corner and some shading
