Re: iPad compatible NWP?

Hi - I know of no iOS apps that can read or write RTF files, for some reason Apple seems determined to not support RTF on iOS. looks like coming iOS 5 will support RTF somehow - but I have no iPad available to check myself. HE Hey that'd be excellent, but I've not heard about it before (and I do ha...

Re: App Store & NWP?

Martin, this is great news indeed! Glad it's finally happened. I would be interested to know if the version of NWP sold in the Mac App Store is different in any respect from the version available from Nisus directly. Did you have to remove or modify any features to get NWP accepted into the App Store?

Re: Feature Request

While I generally agree that more Lion features should be added to NWP at the earliest opportunity (e.g. new document model, please!), automatic spelling correction would have to be an exception. It really isn't very useful, in fact it's irritating in the extreme and I switched it off soon after upg...

Re: iPad compatible NWP?

Here's my problem. I want to be able to take files (created in Nisus) and move them to the iPad, read/edit them using pages, and then return them to the Mac. However, Nisus .rft format is unreadable by Pages on the iPad. I haven't experimented extensively, but I emailed a test file to myself which ...

Re: iNisusPro for iPhone

Pages now supports both iPhone and iPad, there's no reason why Nisus couldn't. Except that iOS has no support for RTF. Last time I looked there were precisely zero iOS apps with any RTF support. Not Pages, not Elements, not Simplenote, none of them support RTF, which is big problem for Nisus as it's...

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

BUT down to business. Looks like the Save as/Lion document thing should be a preference. In fact, a lot of people will stay on SL for some considerable time, I would suggest. Is the Adobe suite Lion-ready? If not, all Adobe users will be staying with SL. (Adobe has traditionally lagged in updating ...

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

Geoff, please read what I said, I never claimed Sydney to be superior to Brisbane (though it is of course, but not so much at this time of year). I was saying Sydney (and Melbourne even) are better than a smelly youth hostel in Brisbane when it comes to WiFi and internet connectivity. You disagree? ...

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

I hope when Nisus is completely upgraded for Lion it retains the "save as" option. The Apple apps (Pages, Textedit, etc.) are, for me, much harder to use without this feature. I couldn't disagree more, I *love* the new document model! It rocks, it is thus far the very best feature of Lion I've foun...

Re: 10.6.8, Nisus 2.7 won't open old rtfs?

See http://nisus.com/Express/oldversions.php for a list of the OS X versions supported by each release of NWX. 2.7 is only supported with versions 10.3 and 10.4 of OS X.

Re: Lion renders Nisus 1.4.1 unusable with broken tables?

As far as I'm aware Nisus do not support NWP 1.4.1 on Lion. 1.4.1 is obsolete and no longer being updated. 2.0 is the current supported release and as far as I know it's the only version that has been, or will be, tested with Lion and updated for compatibility when required (see the NWP 2.0.1 beta)....

Re: iCloud & NWP?

Geoff, the idea is that with Lion and iCloud you can keep your data in both places. Automatically. That way both you and the cloud guy would have to trip over to lose anything... :) But back to the original question. Seriously goldste4, Apple only announced iCloud yesterday . About 36 hours ago.

Re: New features! I knew the brazilian threat would do it ..

Still only one window per document though. Sigh. For how many years have we waited for this pretty basic WP feature to come to Nisus Writer? Even longer now than vertical rulers!

Re: Nisus Pro 2

Geoff I'm sure you have nothing to worry about as far as Lion is concerned. Unless you want to use the vertical ruler in NWP 2.0 of course, that's certain to require Mac OS X 10.7. :)
