Sarah,

If you really, really need this and don't mind spending the money, you may find that Grammatica or Grammarian will do this for you. Not sure about SpellCatcher - I think that just does spelling.

cheers,

You could try this. Go to: Preferences - New Document - Advanced - Edit File. Resize the file and place wherever you want. You could also alter the default fonts, sizes, styles, rules etc at the same time. When done save the file and close prefs. Quit and restart NWE. Any new file should now be as y...

One for Martin and the Nisus team. A request regarding the new 'full screen' view. I have my dock positioned on the right hand side of the screen. If I use full screen view, the vertical scroll bar hides behind the dock. Scrolling seems to work OK but the view is messy. Is it possible to have full s...

I doubt this has anything to do with NWE. ....... Jon Actually Jon and Martin it has everything to do with me :-) I failed to notice that NWE was not linked to BE, even though NWE was open. Presumably it is done automatically in Word. Everything now works fine thanks. I could post this to the BE li...

Beta 8 should take care of this problem. Just tried it with Beta 8 and it still doesn't work for me. Are we talking about the same thing? When I copy citation using the blue button next to 'attach' in the BEnds ref window, nothing happens. Do the same with Word 2004 and BE hands over and pastes in ...

Re: Bookends and 2.7 beta 6

I can't get Bookends to copy citations into footnotes. I checked all settings etc., downloaded the latest version of Bookends. Still doesn't work. Bettina Have you specifed NWE as the word processor in BE prefs? If you do copy formatted (top right of the ref window) and then do a paste at the inser...

Re: Footnote divider

In NW classic I seem to recall that it was possible to set the distance between the horizontal line above the footnotes and the text above. Is this no longer possible? I have some text that is pretty much sitting on the line and it looks terrible. I would like to see that facility but it is fairly ...

Re: how to use Bookends with NWE?

...........my temporary citations aren't changed to the proper style (i.e. changing brackets to parentheses). Is there something simple that I'm missing? I think this is more likely to be something in Bookends. I'm assuming you are using Harvard style but have you checked the stlyle settings? It mi...

..........Have been using Bookend together with Mellel since my studies at the university demands a more mature WP than NWE can offer right now. NWE is good, but still lacks some features that Mellel already has. I hope that Nisus will start to work together with Sonny Software in trying to integra...
