Re: Copy disabled

That's a different problem than paste not working at all. Somet...

Re: Copy disabled

{I wrote} the problem seems to be worst when I first launch NisusWriter. My most typical first operation of the morning is to paste a big block of text from FileMaker into NisusWriter, and my informal estimate is that this fails about 50% of the time {Martin replied} I wonder if this isn't a proble...

Re: Copy disabled

Just to confirm that this problem is at least semi-real: I too have assigned keyboard shortcuts to copy text only and paste text only, and I've had a lot of trouble with them. Two observations, for what they are worth: First, for me, the problem is MUCH worse when dealing with outside programs (typi...

Re: Where did NWP 2.x go now that I've downloaded 3.0?

To verify: Installing the old version did work -- once I had renamed the 3.0 demo as Nisus Writer Pro 3.0. (It did NOT work before that.) But users who need a guaranteed version around should probably rename their copies of 2.1 as "Nisus Writer Pro 2.1" or the like BEFORE installing the demo. Now th...

Where did NWP 2.x go now that I've downloaded 3.0?

I just downloaded NWP 3.0, to try it. Key words are TRY IT. Much as I want to buy it, I need to know if it works for me. So, for the time being, I need to be able to run 2.1 as well. Once I installed 3.0, 2.1 disappeared. No file in the application folder. It's not in the trash. Find command doesn't...

Re: Nisus Writer Pro 2.1.1 public beta 3

Thank you for the new release! I wasn't using a stopwatch, but it seems to be somewhat faster on loading my big documents, and no crashes -- yet. :-)

Re: Major problems with long (or not long) documents in 2.1?

An update on the problem that won't help anyone (except maybe Nisus Software): I looked at the file itself in BBEdit. At the precise point where I was editing when the breakdown happened, there is a line in the RTF code, You {\f3\i think} you\rquote re saying, \ldblquote Here\rquote s something I ne...

Major problems with long (or not long) documents in 2.1?

Nisus Folks -- Today, for the second time since upgrading to 2.1, I've had a major problem with a document. I was typing along, and all of a sudden I got an error about typesetting. It told me the document was unstable and suggested I save it. I saved it, re-opened it, watched it get about 40% throu...
