Re: Upgrading Files

What you described is the most straightforward way to update a file. You could automate this with a macro, but I'd like to pushback on the idea. You do not need to upgrade Nisus Writer files. There isn't any reason to open a file created by Nisus Writer Pro 2 and resave it using version 3. That's ge...

Re: Macros not working in Mojave

Did you choose a "synchronized settings location" in your Nisus Writer preferences? If so, your macros will be loaded from within that folder. For example, if you use Dropbox your macros folder path might be: ~/Dropbox/Nisus Writer Settings/Macros If you don't have a sync folder, then your macros ar...

Re: Keyboard Shortcut for Special Characters?

Adrian's advice is definitely a great way to achieve your goal. For completeness I'd like to point out a few other ways: 1. Use Nisus glossaries, which can expand not only plain text, but also formatted text and other content. 2. Edit your list of QuickFix typos to insert the desired character(s). Q...

Re: Scrolling leaks to other windows (sometimes)

I'm sorry about the unwanted scrolling. What you described could be a bug, but need not be. Nisus Writer allows you to establish synchronized scrolling between two split views in the same document, but will also let you sync scrolling between two different documents. If you do the latter then scroll...

Re: To Bold all text between parentheses

though to be honest, if you have a problem and resort to Regex, it's almost certain that now you have two problems, as the saying goes.... It's certainly a very funny saying. I also enjoy the jab that it's a "write only language" :drunk: But really regex is an incredibly useful tool! There are situ...

Re: Theming or using Dark Mode

There's no easy way to accomplish what you'd like, so your request breaks down into two feature requests: 1. Add official support for Mojave's Dark Mode. 2. Add a new feature to save and load interface themes. Your request definitely makes clear a desire for #1, to support Dark Mode. However, if Nis...

Re: A Big Thanks To Martin ('Official Nisus Person')

You really are too kind! Thank you for your very thoughtful and appreciative message. It means a lot to hear such nice feedback about Nisus Writer :) But on one point I must disagree: I'm sure Martin sees his users as a picky, complaining, and demanding bunch Not so! We really do appreciate our user...

Re: Using NW Pro with NW Express on same computer

There shouldn't be any trouble with that arrangement. So long as you don't run both apps at once there shouldn't be any conflict. And even if you do run both apps simultaneously there wouldn't be any serious trouble. Any potential conflicts would only come from you, if for some reason you were tryin...

Re: How to cleanup a history stored file

It sounds like your file has become unexpectedly large on disk. There are two common causes: 1. Tracked changes that hold a lot of content, perhaps including large images. Do you have tracked changes enabled for your file? Here's a macro that will check your documents for large tracked changes: Trac...

Re: To Bold all text between parentheses

Thanks to Philip for posting that PDF on Find and Replace in Nisus Writer. It's nice how it starts with the easy stuff, but quickly gets to more exciting advanced features like back-references. I would like to make clear that Nisus Writer's "PowerFind Pro" mode has full support for regular expressio...

That's great, thanks for letting us know. I'm glad to hear you solved the problem, and it was just the simple problem of an unexpected style definition.

Re: To Bold all text between parentheses

There's a variety of ways to do this, but here's what I'd recommend: Set the Find panel mode to "PowerFind" and enter the following expression: powerfind.png You can insert those grey bubbles using the button with the gear icon under "Find what". Note: The repeat bubble "1+ Shortest" is necessary he...

Re: Footnotes in ePub Export format

Thank you for sending along your document. We've been able to reproduce the problem, which must somehow be triggered by the particular document structure. We're looking into it.
