Re: Problem in saving new files

So what should I do to stop this? I just had it happen again. I copied and dragged and dropped some text from Firefox, saved the file the first time, and then was told it could not safe formatted text. This time the only error message I get is the attached which tells me nothing other than I can't s...

Re: Problem in saving new files

I'm running into this problem again, and inevitably it always happens when I am trying to take notes on a conversation (or these days a Zoom presentation) and don't have time to try to note the error message, and I can't get the error to repeat. I think I saw something something at the top about "al...

Re: Problem in saving new files

What may be happening here is that my 2018 MacMini is getting confused when it reboots. I had to reboot yesterday because of some problems with Mail, and today I have noticed two problems have started. One is that Nisus Writer Pro is having problems saving new files when I have copied part of a docu...

Re: Problem in saving new files

This problem has reared its ugly head again. It happened most recently (15 minutes ago) when I copied and pasted material from a web site. I noticed when I checked the Nisus New File template that it was dated at the moment that I opened the folder containing the Nisus New File template. The problem...

Re: Problem in saving new files

I have tried to reconstruct how I got the error on the New File template, but have not yet succeeded. I did look at the Template File listed under Advanced preferences for a New File and picked Nisus New File. I think (but am not sure) that it might have been set for "Plain Text Template" before. Th...

Problem in saving new files

Lately when I try to save new files (that have not already autosaved into the Nisus folder) I can create a file, but when Nisus Writer Pro (3.0.4) tries to autosave, I get an error message "Allow save to discard document formatting?", as shown in the attached screen shot. https://nisus.com/forum/dow...

Re: Repeated NWP3.0.1 crashes with High Sierra

Circling back on this, I can report that I have not had any more inexplicable crashes in over a month, even when typing furiously on NWP3.0.1. Perhaps I somehow reset some crucial preference or there is some other factor involved that I did not happen to trigger. However, on Friday I did get an odd ...

Repeated NWP3.0.1 crashes with High Sierra

I have had three mysterious crashes of NWP3.0.1 in the last two days after having updated my 2010 MacMini to High Sierra 2 or 3 weeks ago, then running the latest updates a day or two ago. They seem to come when I lightly touch something on the lower row or two of the keyboard and are extremely fast...

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...
