Re: Check mark fails to display sometimes

I have a document that seems to reliably show this error, and I am sending it into support for examination.

Check mark fails to display sometimes

Hi I can't figure this out. The problem has recurred a bunch of times, but I can't figure out any rhyme or reason when. I have a bunch of paragraphs that start with a few digits, a space, and a check mark (✓ CHECK MARK Unicode: U+2713, UTF-8: E2 9C 93). Many times when I open the document and edit i...

Re: Really really strange behavior editing PowerFind Pro string

Hi Martin The bug has disappeared for me, sorry, so not worthwhile doing anything at this point. If it recurs, and if I can reliably cause it to happen, I'll let you know. Now I see that zoom entry, it's very useful. Judging from my results and others, zooming probably fixes the bug, perhaps (I hope...

Re: Really really strange behavior editing PowerFind Pro string

I have no idea what is meant by altering the zoom in the Find/Replace Dialog. Is there a link that went sour in the original posting? Hi Adrian, I just know that I have seen this problem off and on, including once in NW3. Currently it seems to be okay. As for the Find Box text size: I set the Zoom o...

Re: Really really strange behavior editing PowerFind Pro string

Hi Martin Yes, the issue is text styles in the find dialog. Try the following. I show the result on my screen here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3ukdq1rqzl61bgk/Screen%20Recording%202019-02-11%20at%2017.51.22.mov?dl=0 Take the attached rtf document. It uses small caps, which may have something to do wi...

Really really strange behavior editing PowerFind Pro string

I have now seen this a few times -- deleting characters in the PowerFind Pro dialog box deletes characters after, or not adjacent, to the insertion caret. It is really weird! System: MacOS 10.14.2, Nisus Writer Pro 3.0.1. Set the search dialog to "PowerFind Pro (regex)" and put this string into the ...

Scrolling leaks to other windows (sometimes)

If I have two documents open, or one document in two splits, when I scroll the document with my mouse (Magic Mouse, place mouse over document or pane and scroll with one finger), often the document below that document, or the same document in the other split, will scroll. This is extremely annoying....

Save As dialog rolls up unexpectedly

If I choose "Save As" and then switch to another program, when I go back to Nisus, the save dialog rolls up unexpectedly. Every other program I use keeps the save dialog open. I use Default Folder, and often it is easier to find the folder I want to save in in the Finder, and then use Default Folder...

Re: "Save As" bug?

This is absolutely one of the worst design ideas that Apple has had. Luckily many apps that I use every day (like Adobe's apps) have not followed this insanity, but for those that have (Nisus, PDFPen) I destroy documents on a regular basis. (Open a document that I want to use as a model for a new do...

Re: Change embedded TIFFs to JPEGs in rtf document

Thanks, Phillip. I'll look into this. I haven't scripted Nisus Writer before. And, yes, Photoshop can be scripted -- there are lots of limitations, but it can be made to work.

Change embedded TIFFs to JPEGs in rtf document

Hi I have a document that is growing in size quickly. It has hundreds of screen grabs in it, and they all seem to have come in (through screenshot to clipboard, paste into document) as TIFFs. Is there any easy way to convert these TIFFs to JPGs? It is not worth the time to go through the document, p...

Re: Decreasing space above and below a table (redux)

And a work-around that I found after posting. If you try to grab the table way over on its right top side, sometimes you can drag it.

Decreasing space above and below a table (redux)

I am having problems getting rid of space above a table. There was a discussion a few years ago about this same subject: http://nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=4979&p=22533&hilit=space+above+table&sid=f536dc784a7ad0a67be854732343f63f#p22525 . I don't think that it has been addressed again, but ...

Re: Font size won't go below 11?

That is what I found, exegete77, but perhaps I am not quite understanding what is going on. It appears that the text has no style associated with it, but if you remove the style (or set the style to Normal), then everything works. But why should the up/down buttons not work for font size and the sli...
