Re: missing custom document icons with NWE 3.3.1

I'd really love to see this problem get fixed. And towards that end, here's another clue for you all: I just noticed that when viewed in large form within a folder, my NWE 3.3.1 .RTF document icons show up normally (I assume), as a tiny page of paper, its upper-right corner folded over and its surfa...

Re: missing custom document icons with NWE 3.3.1

Three months later and no fix?

What the White Icon was to Ahab, has been hinted; what, at times, it was to me, as yet remains unsaid.

Re: missing custom document icons with NWE 3.3.1

Restart after new install of app doesn't help. One observation: When copying the new NWE app into my Apps folder, I saw the NWE icon there start to flicker, seemingly gold and blue, back and forth, very rapidly. The icon was in its smallest form - in a list view of apps, that is - so I was not able ...

Re: missing custom document icons with NWE 3.3.1

I repaired disk permissions and restarted, but icons still blank.

I have now re-installed the NWE 3.3.1 app but no change.

I will try restarting again, see if that helps.

Re: missing custom document icons with NWE 3.3.1

I believe the icons are entirely, 100% blank. If there is any info in the icon pane, it is microscopically small. And yes, double-clicking opens the NWE program just fine, and it seems to work just fine, too. I am just downloading app again and will reinstall and see if that fixes things. My origina...

Re: missing custom document icons with NWE 3.3.1

The same thing has just happened on my machine - recently installed Nisus 3.3.1 on Leopard with PPC, and poof, all Nisus document icons have turned blank. And only those documents, not any others that I can see. I have tried fiddling in their Info boxes, associating them with TextEdit and back to NW...

NWE license puzzle

In 2005, I bought a Family Pack, for using NWE on each of the 3 Macs in my household. So far, so good. But now, this: On my main machine, I have set up a special, alternative (ie. non-Main) account that I would like to use when I need to concentrate solely on writing - I have disabled the browser an...

I recently was given to edit and work on a Word file (PC, but not sure what version of Word) that was formatted, or set up somehow, in something called Reading Layout. In NWE 2.5, this document was a total mess, with a whole set of embedded comments repeating over and over throughout the document. I...

I installed Tiger, immediately had trouble with NWE 2.1.1 opening: Seemed to hang while looking for fonts. I was trying to open a .DOC file that had a '/' in its name (my doing, not the author's); also, the icon for this file, which I had obtained off the Web previous to Tiger, no longer showed the ...

Broken scrolling in NWE 2.1.2 ?

Am I imagining things or does the new version of Nisus Writer Express have very unsmooth - aka herky-jerky - scrolling of text when I pull up or down on the scroll bar? I do not remember this behavior in the previous version of the software. It is most annoying. I am running this software on a 2GHz ...

I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Pages actually is, under the hood, a new, updated version of ClarisWorks/AppleWorks - a WP package that I actually liked and have used extensively for many years. It is - or was - small, fast, efficient, and offered all the features I happened to need as a jo...
