Hi: Thanks also for letting us know what other features are important to you in long documents. .......... -Charles Hi Charles, I'm rather late to this thread, but one long doc feature I would like to see is some means of collapsing text, rather like Pat James' Collapse/Expand macro used to do in C...

Friends, Named rulers are converted to style names. However, based on his description of the situation, we have no idea if that's Tacitus' problem. Knowing the doc in question I doubt that is the source of the problem as I didn't name any of the rulers. You should have a copy of the file by now. ch...

I have seen this infamous beachball more than ever before, after I upgraded to NWE 2.0. Is this something that will be fixed by a fast maintenance release or do I have to replace my Pismo with a AluBook? :?

Cheers
