Re: file lost? "Bookmark data previously..."

Hello Michael, I'm very sorry you haven't been able to open your document. The error you see in Nisus Writer only indicates that the file can't be found by Nisus Writer. That doesn't necessarily mean the file no longer exists. I can't answer that question. I don't know if your file exists. If it was...

Re: file lost? "Bookmark data previously..."

A bookmark to a file is a way of locating a file. It's a Mac system feature, similar to how aliases used to work back in the old Classic (OS9) days. The idea is that a bookmark can still locate a file, even if you change its name or move it around. The warning you see in Nisus Writer should not conc...

Re: Paste does not work same in 3.0

That's strange and isn't a problem I've heard about yet. Do you have any system-level keyboard shortcuts that might be intercepting the shortcut before it reaches Nisus Writer? I'm referring to any shortcuts you've created in the system preferences under "Keyboard". What do the rest of your shortcut...

Re: Two Language Fonts in Styles?

Philip explained the options nicely here, but I'll just throw my hat in and say that I also recommend working through character styles whenever possible. Your character styles can govern everything else, eg: keyboard, language, font, etc. As Philip said, you can have a character style like "Hebrew" ...

Re: Page Break -shortcut (cmd + Enter) no longer works?

lindas2013: I've been able to reproduce the problem where Command + Enter (newline) isn't being accepted by Nisus Writer's preferences. That looks like a bug. I'll file it as something we should look at getting fixed, thanks! I expect POost has a working shortcut for Command + Enter either because i...

Re: List formatting

I'm sorry but this is still not possible in Nisus Writer Pro 3. List styles cannot remove formatting enforced by your paragraph styles. Your best option is likely to fake this by having your list style enforce a white underline: list.png That will make it appear as if the list item has no underlinin...

Re: Hotkeys for paragraph styles

I can understand why multi-key shortcuts like Command + H3 might be initially confusing. It's not standard and most users probably haven't seen them before. I'm not aware of very many apps that have this feature. As others have said, you activate a multi-key shortcut in Nisus Writer by holding down ...

Re: Statistics Palette

Hi Les: we already solved this problem privately when you contacted us via email, but I wanted to post a solution here too. Just in case anyone else experiences this issue. The problem was that the "count words" option was turned off in Nisus Writer's language preferences. This option needs to be ch...

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

There are some spellchecking irregularities in Nisus Writer Pro 3 that we're still investigating. They come in different forms, but this is one that we've identified and already understand: NWP 3.0 flags EVERYTHING as incorrect. It's only just started to do this -- that is, it wasn't doing it at 2 p...

Re: Text colors change in Nisus 2 and 3

I'm sorry you're having trouble with shifting colors Xuanying. The color you've assigned to your text should not change between Nisus Writer versions. I just did a quick test in Nisus Writer Pro 2.1.x and 3.0 and it appears to be working correctly. Here's what I did: 1. Launch Nisus Writer Pro 2.1.1...

Re: NWP 3 Document Properties Feature Requests

I'm glad to hear Nisus Writer's custom document properties have been useful for your workflow! Thank you for your feedback and suggestions. First, a floating palette or non-modal window for editing properties would be nice. ... The modal property sheet adds a bunch of clicks to the process. That's a...

Re: PDF Opens One Page Only

Nisus Writer can extract full editable text from PDFs, but it depends on how the PDF file was created. If Nisus Writer is unable to extract text from a PDF then it will fallback to inserting the first page of the PDF as an image. This is likely the behavior you're observing. However, to be absolutel...

Re: Spell Check Language Not Changeable

Hi Al, I believe we already discussed this with you privately but I'll post a solution here too for others. The unwanted spelling dictionary was activated because your document text was marked in the Portuguese language. Nisus Writer allows each piece of text in a document to have its own language w...

Re: Follow-Up Question to My Post "Text Variables": How Do I Attach a Character Style to a Custom Property?

You can insert a custom document property that retains its dynamism (ie: the value will automatically update) and apply a style. There's no need to sacrifice automatic updates. I recommend that you do this either using Glossaries or a more refined macro. Using a Glossary entry is straightforward: ju...

Hello Hari, I'm sorry you had trouble migrating your user settings between Macs. I'm sure you have more than just Nisus Writer settings to contend with. It is possible to manually migrate QuickFix entries from Nisus Writer version 2 to version 3, even between different Macs. It's not too difficult. ...
