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...

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...
