Hi, Candace. I'm sorry you're having such trouble getting used to Nisus Writer Express. That tab symbol at the right end of the menu bar simply lets you choose the type of tab. Whatever type is displayed there is the type that will be added to the menu bar if you simply click in it (above the thin, ...

I'm relatively new to Macs, so I don't know how this might once have worked (say, under OS 9 or in Nisus Writer Classic), but if I change language in Nisus Writer Express (via the tag in the status bar or via the Format > Language menu) to Hebrew, I can type sin with option-w (or option-shift-W) and...

I think Martin and the rest will see it here. If you want to make doubly sure, click the Help menu in Nisus Writer Express and then Send Feedback.

I earlier requested a way to print a specified logical page . Martin proposed something like what you want is on the to-do list. Obviously it hasn't been implemented for the current version, but it might be on the to-do list. I'm sorry this doesn't help you in the immediate. Shall we repeat the requ...

Re: Format Painter

And, of course, format painter - a great feature from Word that lets you easily copy all formatting attributes from one paragraph to a series of other paragraphs. That would be great too. The new version, 2.7, has something like this, but it works at the character level, not the paragraph level. --...

I'm not sure I follow the steps you are taking. Are you somehow entering 10 as the "other" size in the Menu Keys tab of the preferences dialog? If so, I don't know how. If I replicate your set-up without specifying 10 as the "other" size, I get a Set Font Size dialog when I press the menu key. I the...

Well said! I have never interacted with a more consistently responsive software developer than Nisus. There are plenty of good developers out there (and even more not-so-good ones), but the responsiveness of the guys at Nisus -- in this forum and through e-mail responses to feedback -- is second to ...

Here's an idea that might help. I don't really know. 1. Select one of these weird characters. 2. Open the system's Character Palette (Edit > Special Characters or else the language flag in the menu bar > Show Character Palette). 3. In the lower left corner of the Character Palette (at least in Tiger...

It should appear in the pop-up list as "English (British)." If it doesn't, open Preferences, click the languages tab, click the More button, and put a check next to "English (British)."

To change this behavior, go to the General tab of the Preferences dialog and uncheck the "Keep new documents in the document manager without asking me" option.

This doesn't happen for me. The second quotation mark comes out as a closing quotation mark. I'm afraid I have no idea why it doesn't work properly in your case. Anybody?

If you mean what I suspect you mean, Nisus Writer Express doesn't currently offer what you are looking for. It does have a Number Renumber Lines macro, but this places a hard number (rather than an automatically updating number) at the beginning of each selected paragraph, which probably is not what...

if you click the red button you get the stuff underlined in red, if you click the green button, you get the stuff underlined in green. That seems pretty intuitive to me. I think the red underline in Ryan's example is just Nisus telling him that it doesn't recognize the spelling of the word Birdwing...

I remember that, when I first started using the Accept/Reject Change feature in some other application (Microsoft Word?), the buttons confused me. Accepting or rejecting an insertion was straightforward, but accepting or rejecting a deletion was not as intuitive. Like some double-negatives, it requi...
