Re: Book on Nisus Writer Pro

I entered this topic some time ago. I now realize that it was motivated by a need to understand my Mac environment as an extension of myself. As much to anchor who I am and what I make as anything else. Guy Kawasaki wrote "The Mac Way" which set a public view of Apple and was one of the anchors for ...

Re: Changing Language

Selecting text and applying the language worked for my 'after the fact' language assignment and making a style sheet for future docs looks promising. The requirement for using Australian spelling is purely political. I'll be an American working with collaborators, so may as well give the courtesy of...

Re: Changing Language

Thanks. It is all quite puzzling. My situation is that all my work is US-centric until recently where I am and for some time will be running an Australian research lab. So it is quite important that the docs fit in. I just can't figure how to have some docs be Aussia, and how to convert Yankee ones.

Changing Language

I have a US system throughout. I started a document that way, then realized (realised) I wanted Australian spelling. I can switch a number of settings to English (Australian) but on a save, it switches back to US. I am sure there is a sequence and a number of settings in different places I need to t...

Re: An error occurred during the import…

I am having the same problem.

I am able to delete the old paths to mail (there were two). But when I select ~/Library/Mail folder, it doesn't enter.

Re: NW for iPad?

I've been conflicted on this for some time. Asking for an iPad app is a big ask, and absolutely a money loser in the existing app ecosphere. It must be a tough enough business as it is maintaining one main product, and I would rather see new development in the Mac app. I can think of two use cases. ...

Color not showing

I have a word that requires one letter to be red:

redframer

Applying this in all the ways I know. 2/3s of the time it works. The rest of the time there seems to be no way to get the red color to stick.

Search and replace doesn't do the job either.

Document closes when switching apps

New to NWP. I have a doc managed by document manager.

If I switch apps (for instance to check mail), the doc closes and I have to reopen it via the document manager.

I'm sure this is a feature, but how do I get the doc to stay open?

Re: Future viability of Nisus

Yes, I meant the Winterfest discount. I don't know who organized it, but I heard via Tinderbox. Nisus is the last on that list that I did not own. The purchase is timely because I am authoring a complex PDF with many internal links and I will be using Linkback extensively. I hope over time to become...

Re: Future viability of Nisus

Well, I am finally buying Nisus Pro myself after being a happy former user of the OS9 version. The Tinderbox discount is what pushed me over the line. I'm posting because I really want a FrameMaker replacement. Not sure what missing feature will bother me with Nisus when IU start using it again, but...

Re: Book on Nisus Writer Pro

Well, the more your book is like the one you did for (what is now called) Classic, the more likely for me to both buy it and come back to Nisus.

That may be the best computer book I have encountered, and it really made my life better.

Re: Book on Nisus Writer Pro

I would probably not be interested in a Take Control book. These probably are fine for a novice, but I seldom find out how to do what I want to do with the ones I have purchased. I would instead buy both of the following at $20. -- Advanced stuff, re workflows: LinkBack, PDF management, Devonthink, ...

Re: Book on Nisus Writer Pro

Joe -- I think what I would suggest is three different books. One would be like Engst manages, an overall, lightweight "Taking Control." A second would be an expert user's manual, assuming some expertise. I am considering coming back to Nisus and would want some guidance about LinkBack workflows, ge...
