Re: Opening Nisus with a shortcut?

You could try using spotlight: just trigger spotlight using the according key combination, then start typing nisus, once it is selected (if not automatically, use the arrow keys) hit return. This way, you can start any app or open documents. If you want something moe sophisticated, there are a numbe...

Re: New NWP user, trying to leave Word, couple of questions

Hi! Unfortunately I have no answers to your questions 1 and 3, but I think 'repeat last action' functionality was discussed some time ago in one of the forums here, but I don't remember exactly and what has happened since then. To change the default font you need to edit the 'default document': open...

Styles got a will of their own

Hi! Just stumbled into a minor problem with styles. I have a style, let's call it Style2 that is based on another style, say Style1; Style1 has the attribute "italic", but Style2 is not supposed to have that attribute. So I remove it (set it to "unitalic" in the Stylesheet view. The trouble is, that...

Re: Desired NWP1.2 Features

I don't know... In I way I might say that I use NWP just because it does not try to be everything, including a layout app. What I use NWP for is writing manuscripts that are then sent off to journals for publication (hopefully). That means I don't do any layout myself. What I need is a strong, tradi...

Well, I was indeed aware of Sente's ability to scan RTFs, in fact, I am using it. However, if you have a look at the level of Sente (and Bookends) integration in Mellel, that's a completely different story and does make life easier. This is real integration, whereas another software app's (in this c...

Somehow requests about citation software integration tend to go unanswered here. Others have asked for integration of other citation managers, without reply. I have asked for Sente integration and guess what, no answer. Guessing from the devs silence, citation management software integration does cu...

Great, now could you give it a high-res icon for the finder's new cover-flow mode?

Hi! I installed 10.5 yesterday and downloaded NWP 1.0.2 beta. Haven't done any work yet, but I stumbled across one issue immediately. The app crashes every time I close a document. One question out of curiosity (and a little bit of hope/wishful thinking): 10.5 comes with a grammar checker for Englis...

I use both programs, but I don't think you can make sensible use of LinkBack between them. If you copy text from NWP and paste it in iCalamus, then double click the text frame, you just get to edit the text in the frame in iCalamus. In a way that makes sense, because you would want to be able to edi...

I fully agree, but would like to go even further: I think it is generally not a good solution that macros have to be edited in a standard NWP document window. Something like a macro editor would be much appreciated. This could be something like a derivative of a NWP doc window, but with a different ...

Thanks Scott, I guess I was too hasty. Well, considering the time I spend in Nisus it was worth paying the full price. Express has been my main word processor for two years now, and has proven an almost perfect tool for writing scientific manuscripts. Pro makes life even easier thanks to the navigat...
