Thanks, Bob.

I also found that Normal "Find Next" does not work--sometimes misses occurrences of the word and occasionally alternates back and forth between two occurrences.

This happens whether or not "Whole Word" " and "Ignore Case" are checked.

Using OS X 10.4.7, Word 11.2 and NWX 2.7: When I create an equation object in word, it pastes without problems into NWX. This works whether I select the equation object in the word document or in the word equation editor. The equation objects are converted into graphics objects. Although NWX ordinar...

In OS X 10.4.7 PB G4 1.5 and 2 G memory, I comfortably work on documents of about 165,000 words, including lists, tables, notes. At 200,000 words typing is fine. Search and replace of a common phrase (about 10,000 occurrences) led to no-response and the necessity of force-quitting. This is an extrem...

You can create a link to any current file in your computer: 1. Open the insert link dialogue. 2. Drag the file from the finder into the "Link Destination Box" 3. Prepend "file:" (no quotes) to the start of the file name. Admittedly this is a far cry from what Nisus Classic did, nor does it address t...

This discussion about tabs and indent markers has been very helpful. One more question. In the help it states: "You can move the left indent marker and first line indent of selected text by pressing OPTION RIGHTARROW. This moves the left indent marker and first line indent in one-half and one-quarte...

TABS: See pages 100-103 (printed page numbers 89-92) of the pdf manual and the Structuring Paragraphs section of help. I've found the advice there useful. Before reading these sections, I tried to change an existing tab by selecting it and then changing its type. That didn't work. You must first del...

I have English language localization, and I don't really know much more than the Hebrew letters, but have you tried the Hebrew-QWERTY keyboard?

With it I can easily type Shin and Sin on my PB G4 OS X 10.4.7 and NWX 2.7.

Linking

NWX 2.7 OS X 10.4.7 PB G4 1.5 Like you, I have found that working links in Nisus did not always translate to working links from the PDF file. I have a work-around. 1. First, for folks who haven't tried hyperlinks: I've found that linking from within NWX document works only if the URL is a FULLY qual...
