Re: Feature Request: Footnotes in Full Screen?

I think, if such a feature is added, the footnotes in full page view have to stay at the bottom of the page and it has to be configurable how many lines they consume. On a 13' display i don't want to waste much space with the footnotes and i don't want any sign of a page break in full screen.

Re: margin changes by accident

By the way, why do not you switch to draft view when copying text? Hm, switching views to copy text -- sounds very micosoftish? "view/layout vs. copy text"? I don't think that both should have something to do with another. To give an example why your idea isn't quite good. Half of the time i copy f...

margin changes by accident

wow. nice update! great work. :arrow: here is one "mini" request for the next update: i really dislike the "feature" that i can change margins in "page layout". Often when i grab text to copy it to another file i change accidently the margins of the first text because instead of grabbing the text I ...

Hi Ninutra, i know the problem with german academic publishers, but i think Anne is right. If you use ms word you also have to look through the whole text for wrong hyphens and spaces in your typoscripts which are due to words word don't know. It's always visible for an experienced eye if the hyphen...

well, i don't think that i am contradicting myself, because I didn't say that nisus is bug-free. My point was that nisus decided to use a standard which is documented an which allows us to say "this should work this way and that should work that way, because this and that is documented in the rtf-sp...

sorry, but i think we should not overstress this discussion. Nisus decided to go the right way with the decision to use a well documented standard, which guarantees compatability between platforms. Words doc format is a proprietary format. So noone will ever get nearer to word than ... word. if some...

i understand (respectively regarding your fist post: i understood and understand) the principle and the "workaround". The question is, if the principle makes sense. I doubt that. I think that alsmost all users want, that their footnotes are equally aligned (namely the way they formatted them in the ...

This behavior is actually intended to help out those who write in languages that flow from right to left. When they insert a footnote the alignment/direction should match that of the body text. But perhaps centering a footnote is never helpful. What does everyone think? ah, i see. but why is the fo...

My point would be even more radical: If females shouldn't feel equally addressed by "Linzenznehmer", why should males feel equally addressed by "Lizenznehmerin"? "Equal rights" works both ways! Indeed, grammatical gender and biological sex are quite seperated in German. We should leave it at that. ...

Hi Hamid,

i wrote little glitch because it's easily solvable (you mentioned it). After reading your post I trashed the nisus-prefs and the nisus "new file.dot" and the problem is still there.

(Btw: i use an intel-mac.)
