Re: Line spacing when using Combining Diacritical Marks

Correcting my own post -- This was much clearer than what you said last time -- thank you for clarifying. I was able to follow the instructions this time. But, on my machine, it still doesn't work. The behavior is the same whether using ABC or US keyboard and whether typing the keystroke for the dia...

This isn't really relevant to the topic, but it might explain why simple solutions aren't, well, simple.

Line spacing when using Combining Diacritical Marks

Nisus folks -- I'm looking for a workaround for a line spacing problem. I'm editing a medieval Latin manuscript page, and it's full of abbreviations. So, for instance, the word "in" is abbreviated as i with a bar over it, ī. This is no problem, because ī is in the unicode character set. But there ar...

Re: Copy disabled

{I wrote} the problem seems to be worst when I first launch NisusWriter.

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...
