Just want to point out that I visit this site regularly, and I haven't picked up any Java viruses. Unless the files noted are invisible, I don't even have a Java cache folder in my User Library. I checked mine but couldn't find any of the files listed although I do have a Java cache folder - no ide...

I think someone from Nisus should have replied to this. Tthe Safari MS05-013 looks like a Windows only virus and ineffective on a Mac. Don't know about the Java stuff but maybe it could be problematic.

cheers,

Footnote separator and first footnote

I notice on a doc that I have just printed, that the first footnote is uncomfortably close to the line separator to the point where they virtually run into each other. it could do with another 2 points of separation. Could this be fixed in the next update please? Anyone else notice it? I didn't noti...

NW 2.5 is using 76 MB on my machine 10.4.2 without doing a thing. OTOH, I never believe MS or Apple on what a minimum system should be 256 MB wasn't adequate under OS 9, no less OS X. That said 76 MB for a WP that has done nothing but launch is a bit much. However, it doesn't use the CPU when not i...

Re: 3.0 Feature Request List

........ I'm a paying user of OO3, and nothing comes close to what it can do. And with linkback...well, it would be plain silly for Nisus to waste their limited resources on something like outlining features. I might be inclined to agree, but if you put any references (to go in footnotes) in notes ...

Great posts guys. :) ................A pdf formatted document is portable but many are hesitant to accept them because they like to annotate/comment in the document...............

Re: Nisus Writer Express 2.5 Beta 5

Express 2.5 Beta 5 is now available........... Thanks, and happy testing! For me both b4 and b5 have been much slower than b3. With b5 even on short files scrolling is jerky and verging on the spinning beachball. There seems to be a greater amount of formatting going on in the background as things ...

......When in Page View, you generally have a lot of white space (the margins) on the left side, the right side, or both sides. You can resize the view and manually center the document horizontally in the window, but you lose that centering if you switch to Draft View and back. A nice solution woul...

Re: Be careful what you make defaults

.......... I looked in the folder and the program had overwritten the original file (AutoSave after 5 minutes) with the same name in the same folder in RTF (I assume; it's certainly not any kind of Word). My original document is permanently gone! How could such a potentially dangerous feature be a ...

Request - Page View position in window

I don't know how difficult this would be to do, but as someone who swaps between Draft and Page View on a regular basis I would like to see the page (writing) automatically centred in the open window in Page View. OK I can resize the window to make sure it is covered, but if you have several windows...

I'm running 2.5 alpha 4 on Mac OS X 10.3.9, and it seems to work fine. Alpha 5 is in use everyday with no problems, although having upgraded cocoaspell to the latest version the spellchecker will not now remember new words. I believe this is a common problem and has been reported as a bug although ...

Next NisusWriter Express Release

The end of March is gone and the beginning of April has arrived (with beautiful weather)… 8) …but where is the new public beta of NWE? :wink: /Peter Having just fallen foul of the 'long footnote' bug I too am a bit desperate for the next version. The bug renders my file unusable in NWE so I am havi...

Hi: I'm sorry my last post wasn't clear! This bug will not be fixed in any 10.3 release that I know of. We never encountered this bug until later in the 10.3 series; I'm sorry to hear it has existed even earlier! -Charles The real irony of all this is that I can honestly say that the only WP which,...

Hi: The best way to work around this issue is to instead set a tab stop and use tabs to indent. I know this is not ideal; we would like to make it work better for you also! -Charles This doesn't work for me. I have tried putting a tab stop in the footnote style and no way will this stick. Since I u...

Re: LinkBack

I would like to see a spreadsheet having this technology. The ability to have a table auto update in NWE after changing the dat...
