Incompatibility of NWP and Sugarsync (+other clouds?)

My regular workflow involves keeping my active NWP documents in Sugarsync's "magic briefcase," which is essentially a folder that sits on three different computers. Up until 2.07 NWP handled this brilliantly. Every manual save caused the document to sync, and when I opened up a file on another compu...

Re: Import a List of Specialized Words into Spelling Diction

Thanks Ann, I've done a bit of that - having the dictionary learn individual words - but unfortunately my specialized list numbers in the thousands. So I'm looking for a way to do this in one big swoop.

Import a List of Specialized Words into Spelling Dictionary?

Hi, I have a long list of specialized and foreign words in my MS Word Dictionary. Quite lazily, I have been opening my Nisus documents in Word just to use this dictionary for my spell checks. Is there a quick and easy way to get these words en masse into my Nisus Dictionary? I really would like to t...

Re: A Very Simple (too simple) Style Question

Thanks Martin, I found that one. Unfortunately I tend to make this mistake in the middle of sentences. Ah well, one can't have everything.

Re: A Very Simple (too simple) Style Question

Sorry one more question.

MS Word has an auto-correct feature that fixes a double capital typo.

For example:

AFrica into Africa

Is there anything like this in Nisus? I'm finding this is another one of those small things that I've gotten used to.

Re: A Very Simple (too simple) Style Question

Outstanding. Many many thanks, your directions were perfect. I really do want to switch over to Nisus, but there is something about the way that the documentation is written that makes it hard to follow. Now that you've directed me to the "New File" preference I should be able to sort the rest out f...

A Very Simple (too simple) Style Question

I have owned Nisus Writer Pro for years, but the one thing that has prevented me from using it as my main word processor is that I simply can't figure out how to create 3-4 simple styles that would be available in any document I open in Nisus. Every time I think I have it figured out I find out that...

Sold

You've convinced me.

For the record, I had originally tried to split this document using Word, but it choked on the size of the document (1100 single spaced pages) and crashed. NWP, on the other hand, spat out 850 separate text file documents in about 4 minutes.

Outstanding

Thanks so much, this really did the trick.

One final question. I'm a registered Nisus Express user, but NWP seems to be more geared to my needs. So at this point I'm try to decide whether to make good on my promise and buy NWP or to purchase the Nisus Express upgrade.

Any thoughts?

THanks again.

Same Error Message

Sorry, I'm still getting that same error message even though I installed the most recent version NWP. I also think that I changed the code as you instructed but I confess that I'm having trouble making sure.

I really appreciate your help with this.

Thanks

Thanks so much for this, but when I tried to run the Macro I got the message

There was an error on line 23 in the macro: Invalid variable name "docLim+".

I'm using Nisus Writer Express, but I would gladly buy a copy of Nisus Writer Pro to avoid having to do this work manually.

By "manual line breaks" a do mean "page breaks."

Thanks so much.

Breaking a Large Nissus Document into Separate Documents

I have a very large Nissus document that I would like to break up into smaller files based on manual line breaks. In other words, this very big document has sections delineated by these inserted line breaks. The sections are also marked with an "•". So ideally I would like find a way to have Nissus ...

Function Keys

Is there a way to program the function keys? In MS Word I have F1 set as "save" and would like to do the same in NWE. I tried using "Menu Keys" but I can't get the "Save" option to accept F1. I also tried taking F1 away from "hide palette" with no luck. Forgive me if I missed the answer to this on m...
