Re: Go To Cursor

I have no time to respond, but I've already read that wiki about thorn! I am interested in the similarity between early 'Old English', and the Icelandic language – not so far apart!

Also, my sister is crazy about Iceland, and has visited many times.

Later,

Re: Go To Cursor

Thanks, Þorvarður! That does the trick.

I'm curious about the characters in your name, and wonder if you are Icelandic?

Go To Cursor

Hi,

Is there a command for Go To Current Cursor Position?

(I ask because: When I Show the Comments column, add a comment, and then Hide Comments,
my text body often scrolls somewhere else in my doc! I need to manually relation to my cursor position. Sometimes.)

Thanks in advance,

Re: NW Pro and the iPad Pro Revisited

Although there are exporting/importing work-arounds that are functional for getting texts back & forth between OS X and iOS, it's equally true that there are a many other apps that can round-trip simple formatted texts. In fact, Evernote works great, if your formatting/navigating needs are modest. T...

Re: NWP and iOS: About Back&Forth-ing

Yikes, you guys are making my head reel with the scripts & macros et al. Once, in another life, I figured out a bit of scripting within Microsoft Word, but it was a learning curve for me. I'm at a point where I don't want another learning curve. I'm getting older, and now feel that I have to get my ...

Re: NWP and iOS: About Back&Forth-ing

Mulling it over: My NWP-on-Mac experience is so perfectly _transparent_ , so out of my way. Will I sacrifice my sacred writing flow so easily?? Now I'm thinking: If I feel compelled to work on my text while on iPad, I can just - open my Nisus .rtf in Dropbox app – Read Only - open a 'scratch' docume...

Re: NWP and iOS: About Back&Forth-ing

Thanks for the extra guidance, Adrian. (And nice, from my land-of-handsome-prime-ministers, to hear from a fellow colonial.) I'm sure the cross-app and cross-platform stuff works for some folks. I don't think it's going to work for me. I'll try Mellel. I'll miss NWP though, since I had it set up ver...

Re: NWP and iOS: About Back&Forth-ing

UPDATE in light of Hamid's answer: Thank you so much for the definitive answer, Hamid! Well that settles it. Looks like my cozy NWP affair is over, if I want to co-exist on other platforms. :^{ Sigh, life is becoming one continuous technological transition/adaptation. It's like being homeless. :^/ ...

Re: NWP and iOS: About Back&Forth-ing

Bump!

Will I lose any NWP-specific formatting,
if I trade Nisus's .rtf's back and forth between
NWP on Mac and
an .rtf app on iOS?

I especially need my Heading Styles to survive
(since I organize my prose by their Table of Contents indents).

Thanks in advance!

Re: Devs: Split View Prognosis Please

Hey Nisus Developers,

I'd still love a word from you:

Is a live-synced Split View feature
a) a possibility; or is it
b) off the table??

Thanks in advance for your response,

Re: Devs: Split View Prognosis Please

Opening a copy of the document certainly is the available work-around. Still a work-around, though: 2nd copy needs to be opened separately (by macro or not), & its window arranged on screen. And if you've added text to one window and then accidentally saved the wrong window, there goes your added te...

Devs: Split View Prognosis Please

Split View (where changes in one panel auto-updates in the other one) is a terrifically useful feature for many, many editing, planning and tinkering purposes. It's a thing that keeps some people using the big suite word processors. It's an almost indispensable tool for me. It's the major thing that...
