Where do my Macros go, and how do I install them?

To install the macros:

Start Nisus Writer Express. Choose "Open Macro Folder" from the "Macro" menu. This should display the macros folder. Drag the contents of the Macros folder you downloaded to the Macros folder that was opened in the previous step. Close both folders and enjoy.

Is my favorite language supported in Nisus Writer Express?

If Apple supports your favorite language, Nisus Writer Express will support it. Since it is written in Cocoa, we automatically gain Unicode support, which makes language support much easier on everyone.

Can I use Arabic/Hebrew, or other right to left languages?

Yes you can. As of Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) Apple has added support for bidirectional text entry. This means that, like Classic Nisus Writer, Nisus Writer Express is compatible with Arabic, Hebrew, and other right to left languages.

Why doesn't Express look or feel like Nisus Writer Classic?

Is Express able to read my old Nisus documents?

Yes, Express can read Classic Nisus Writer documents. There are some limitations, due to features in Classic Nisus Writer not being supported in Express.

However, as more Classic features are added to Express, translation of your Classic Nisus Writer documents will improve.

Will menu-based macros created with Classic work in Express?

Yes and no. Some of the menu-based macros created with Nisus Writer Classic will just work. Others will have to be re-written, depending on what they do and which menus they rely on. In other words, if the menu exists in the same location as it does in Classic Nisus Writer, it will work. However, si...
