Re: Pro 2.0.1 public beta (bug fixes and Lion support)

We just released public beta two, which is available via the NWP auto-updater, or can be downloaded directly . Beta two improves DOCX and ".doc" file import, fully integrates Lion's Full Screen mode, and has some other fixes. I appreciate the full-screen compatibility. It's not necessary on a 20 in...

Printed manual?

Will a manual for NWP 2.0 be forthcoming soon? I realize the contents are all found in Help, but with several new features in 2.0, I'd really like to have a print copy to study how to use some of them. I was hesitant to upgrade, but gladly did so when I found that not only do Comments and Track Chan...

Re: App Store & NWP?

My understanding is that the App Store allows you to install purchased software on any of your computers under the same license - which might end up saving multi-computer users a fair amount of money (say, if they have a desktop and laptop and previously had to buy family packs or multi-user licens...

Re: Nisus Writer Pro 1.4

Can any of you Bookends users tell me - is it specifically for academic type of reference searching? Thanks Lou I'm using it with Google Scholar and some of the databases the library at the college where I teach has access to. But it's a bibliography tool as well and can be used to gather resources...

Re: Nisus Writer Pro 1.4

Just letting everyone on the forum know that we have just released Nisus Writer Pro 1.4 . There is only one change: Nisus Writer Pro now communicates directly with Bookends. You can now scan your documents, find references, insert citations, and switch to Bookends by using the new menu items (Inser...

Now Services work in all applications which support Services under Snow Leopard.
It fixed the problem for me. Excellent.
Works just fine for me too including in Safari and Pages. Good work.

Re: Nisus Writer Pro 1.3.1 public beta - Snow Leopard compatible

Intriguing ... I have two computers, a Rev 1 MacBook Pro 17" and a Rev 1 MacBook Air. Both are running 10.6.1. On the MBA the Thesaurus works, on the MBP it doesn't, and yet, as far as I can see, the two services set-ups are identical. Fortunately, I don't need it much, and it is there in the palet...

Re: Thesaurus doesn't appear in Snow Leopard

Elbrecht, I've got the same problem, no Thesaurus option appears in the Services menu. I'm using Mac OS X 10.6.1, NWP 1.3.1, NT 1.0.6 and I did exactly as you specified. "Look up Selection in Thesaurus" is checked in Services Preferences. Other apps services appear under the Services menu when text...

Re: Thesaurus doesn't appear in Snow Leopard

Hi again - I am not used to Nisus Thesaurus - but it seems to work with me. 1) Go "Services / Services Preferences / Keyboard Shortcuts" 2) Select "Services" to the left and make sure "Look up Selection in Thesaurus" is activated in the list to the right. 3) Use Shortcut offered or change it your w...

Re: Thesaurus doesn't appear in Snow Leopard

Hi - "APPLE/<" does the job for me - with nothing else changed, after installing new "NWP 1.3.1" and new "Thesaurus". Otherwise go activate Services as you please: "Services / Services Preferences..." HE Those keystrokes do nothing but cause the "ding" sound one gets when hitting a wrong key. There...

Re: Nisus Writer Pro 1.3.1 public beta - Snow Leopard compatible

In Snow Leopard, the Services works in an intelligent way and only the commands which make sense appear in Services/contextual menu. So you have to select some text to access those supplied by Nisus Thesaurus — which has not been updated and your 1.0.5 (2006) is the latest version. I've selected te...

Re: Nisus Writer Pro 1.3.1 public beta - Snow Leopard compatible

I've posted about this in the Other section but I'm wondering why the Thesaurus update that supposedly works with Snow Leopard Services (1) doesn't work and (2) was last updated in 2006 according to Get Info. Did the server mess up and not make the new version available?

Re: Thesaurus doesn't appear in Snow Leopard

Did that. Nisus Thesaurus still not available through Services in any program. Downloading new version of Thesaurus that was supposed to fix the problem. Still no go.
What next?

Re: NW PRO won't open WORD 04 DOCs

I'd vote with offering separate downloads. I still have an iMac G3 in my office and an iBook G4, but most of my work is on my year-old iMac and my first-generation MacBook. It wouldn't be any problem, when there's an update, to download separate Intel and PPC versions. I already have to do that with...

Downloaded the beta this morning, upgraded the CoreDuo (2006) MacBook this afternoon and everything works just fine.
