Re: Typesetting bug 3.0.1 - all lost on any edit

Thanks for the extra information. Would Section Breaks be 'clear breaks'? (And are there other 'clear breaks'?). I ask because I tested my document in version 2, and found I have four sections in the 1007 pages. Two of the breaks are within the first 40 pages, and the final one is at the very end. H...

Re: Typesetting bug 3.0.1 - all lost on any edit

An addendum: I've just noticed in version 2 that when I inserted a Section Break, next Odd page, the complete typesetting of the whole document is forced, and I have to wait for the typesetting to complete before I can access the end of the document. This is understandable to me because at least one...

Re: Typesetting bug 3.0.1 - all lost on any edit

Thank you and this clarifies slightly, but I just tested what you said in version 2, and I think you're still missing the major point about version 3's difference from version 2. I mean: I just added a new paragraph that was twenty lines long into a version 2 page near the start (of my 1007 page fil...

Re: Typesetting bug 3.0.1 - all lost on any edit

Martin, you have helped me many times, and I know you mean well here, but what you've said is fundamentally incorrect on my machine. I just tested 2.1.10 against 3.0.1 on the same file. To repeat, in more detail: 2.1.10 Loads the whole file, (which is 1007 pages, and takes two minutes) and then allo...

Typesetting bug 3.0.1 - all lost on any edit

Hi, I'm a long-time user of version 2 (many years), who just upgraded to 3.0.1. I have a major issue that must be resolved (maybe it's a new setting, but could be a bug?): Issue: When working in PageView, whenever I make ANY edit in the document, all typesetting after a few pages is lost, and the ty...

Crash and no sign of document in manager

Hi, Just had a power failure, computer down. In earlier versions of Nisus I usually retrieved my crashed file from the Document manager, but this time no sign of it there at all. This is very sad and annoying; lost 30 minutes of work that I was deeply involved in. :( I'd like to ask if this is relat...

Re: Nisus/Apple breaking at non-syllables, off by 1 letter

You could try installing additional English hyphenation dictionaries, which Nisus Writer can detect. I found some extra English hyphenation dictionaries on a LibreOffice web page. You'll want the file called hyph_en_US.dic or hyph_en_GB.dic . Then follow the instructions in our FAQ topic to make th...

Feature Req — Enhanced Typogr Spacing and Hyphenation

Hi, I'd like to know if the following typographic final-compositor tools will be available in Nisus within the next year. I asked about this a couple of years ago, and I think it's time to ask again. :P I mean the tools available like these screen-shots of InDesign: the word-spacing, letter-spacing,...

Re: Autosave minutes -- from my last save, or absolute?

Annoyingly, when I save my work and then go away to work in another program, or sleep the computer, and come back, Autosave saves again immediately. . Let's consider your 30 minute autosave period with this hypothetical work schedule: 0:00 Start editing a document in Nisus Writer. 0:10 Finish editi...

Re: Nisus/Apple breaking at non-syllables, off by 1 letter

I'm not seeing this problem. I tried on OSX 10.11 with the settings you gave, in a small test document, and "challenging" is hyphenated correcting as challeng-ing. This is very strange, because I'm on 10.11 and I've just tested both Nisus and TextEdit, and both have the errors in multiple words. Wh...

Nisus/Apple breaking at non-syllables, off by 1 letter

Hi, I'm working on a long book, and recently changed from OS 10.6 to 10.11. I now discover what appears to be a bug in the Apple hyphenation in El Capitan: it's sometimes off by one letter, and always in the same way. An example would be 'challenging'. The correct hyphenation, which used to be there...

Re: Autosave minutes -- from my last save, or absolute?

Can it be changed? Almost certainly not. Most likely an Apple thing, as the NSDocument class which handles this kind of thing is wired to autosave on various events, and application switching is one of them. Definitely annoying. But I'm not having it happen just by application switching, as far as ...

Re: Autosave minutes -- from my last save, or absolute?

Thank you, I now have Autosave set to 30 minutes, and I manually save regularly every few minutes, so I almost never see Autosave. One exception, which I consider a bug -- I don't know if it's Apple's bug, or if you can control it. It's perhaps related to this: I should say that autosave timing is n...

Autosave minutes -- from my last save, or absolute?

Hi, I'm attempting to discern if Autosave is working correctly (I've had some trouble understanding it), and to do that I need to know what it's designed to do. Question: If I set Autosave to 30 minutes, should this 30 minutes always be measured from my last manual save, or is it absolute? Examples:...
