Re: Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.2 released

in fact, I've been fighting with Nisus Writer pdf/html renditions since 2007, even though year after year, problems have been ironed out one by one... now there are only a few issues left — mainly the rendition of those link-back files, made with OmniGraffle , and dragged directly into the Nisus Wri...

Re: Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.2 released

hmm… 4 successive new releases already, and none of them fixes the terrible image down-sampling issue when rendering to html, even though it was reported several times: there's a very serious problem with html renditions: images are down-sampled to the point they only vaguely evoke their original co...

fine, fine... but how do you tell it to get rid of the space that was already there?

Re: 2.0.2 update failed

thanks: this fixed my issue!

yet, I wonder why, as a customer, I wasn't told about this link while everybody else were: being kept informed would be nice, instead of having to blindly accept downloads that may fail… the latest Nisus newsletter I've got (19 July) didn't say a word about this!

2.0.1 beta 2 update failed

my copy of Nisus Writer detected a new release was available — and do I want to install it? I pressed the OK button and downloaded the file: unfortunately, the update failed to install and didn't finish cleaning up the mess! the problem is, now NWP quits on launch, telling me: Library not loaded: @e...

Re: Exporting to HTML without stylesheet info

the problem with r2net is there are quite a few idiosyncrasies it doesn't catch when processing NW output: for instance, it will quit converting at the first linked graphic file it encounters… that's because, it won't honor any Nisus internal link, be it a table of contents, an index, whatever… othe...

Re: The way underlining appears

Professional typographers never use underlining: it's ugly and it sucks, how ever you tweak it... did you ever see a real book with underlines in it?

Originally, it's the poor man's typewriter substitute for italics: on modern computers, you don't need this!

Re: Issue with shapes

I thought this issue was a well-known bug! I use shapes a lot, but NWP1 had no way to control anchor mutability: moreover I've seen numerous occurrences of figures being moved on the page (and ruining a careful layout) even though their anchor was still at the very same place… I'm glad NWP2 now prov...

thanks: I should have known that running 10.5.8 in mid-2011 is looking for trouble!

Re: paragraph shading overlaps floating images

okay, I've sent the document above (as saved by NWP1) but all of my documents have issues with most image placements; when they don't, it's a particular case of the layout having only loose constraints between the text and its image; after investigating a little closer, I found this is a conjunction...

I did just that about 12 hours ago... but I'm not sure it has automatically attached the log file; now the console reads: Nisus Writer Pro[16351] *** -[NWGeneralPreferenceController awakeFromNib]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x1d456d90 the previous release didn't exhibit this behavior; NB...

is it only me, or NWP 2.0.1 cannot open its preferences window?

Re: paragraph shading overlaps floating images

thinking it over… that the second diagram is offset to the right by NW 2 looks like a clever attempt to honor the corresponding text layout, which is not the case for the first diagram, where the text takes a 23-line space instead of 22 however, this is unfortunate: in my [humble] opinion, the best ...

paragraph shading overlaps floating images

I'm having issues when migrating from Nisus Writer 1 to 2, as shown by the pictures I attached… The first one has no workaround that I can think of: there's simply no way to do with NW 2 what could be done with NW 1; as shown by the pictures, the paragraph titles had a background color in NW 1, whic...
