NWP 2.1 Sandbox Breaks AppleScript

I love the new version and many of its features. However, I am unable to solve an issue with some AppleScripts that call on Nisus templates. After NWP 2.1 moved the file templates to ~/Documents/Nisus Documents/Templates/, my scripts are interrupted with this error: The file "Nisus New File" could n...

Re: Possible bug in 2.0.5 with font sizes

This is still a bug. Text refuses to retain arrow-applied font point size changes in Nisus Writer 2.0.5 under OS X 10.8.5. Moreover, Before/After line spacing exhibits the same problem. Changed using the arrows, the number in the Tooldrawer dialog is incorrect in both cases (point size and line spac...

Re: Check Spelling Hell

Existing documents store the setting in the file itself, just as with other view settings, eg: Draft vs Page view, show rulers, show invisibles, etc. We believe that saving the document view/editing state on a per-file basis is a useful feature. Agreed. But it is time for the team to rethink this. ...

Re: Check Spelling Hell

That checkbox can set it to be ON for all new documents,
but it doesn't work to set it OFF for all documents.
Most of us want it off, not on.

Re: Check Spelling Hell

Thanks for pointing that out, Geoff, but the problem is bigger than that. There are really three design problems involved: (1) "Check Spelling as You Type" is saved with the document. This is just silly. To demonstrate it for yourself, do this: — Modify a document. Then, just before you save it, tur...

Check Spelling Hell

I maintain that it was a mistake for Nisus to make "Check Spelling as You Type" effective only on a per-document basis. It should operate for ALL documents, not one document at a time. The way it is now, this situation is possible: "Check Spelling as You Type" is NOT checked in Nisus Writer Pro 2.0....

Re: Feature Request for Filename

NWP actually does this now. If your document body is empty, but the header is not, the header will be used for the suggested file name.
That is exactly what I needed to know. Thank you!

Re: Feature Request for Filename

Once again, a new version has appeared without my feature request.
Hence, my annual post.
Please include the option to have new documents named with the contents of the
document header instead of the first words in the body of the document.

Tooldrawer won't stay shut

I save all of my documents with the tooldrawer closed, yet every document always opens with the tooldrawer open. I can't stop it. There is no option, no setting to turn it off. In the View tab of Preferences, I have the Tooldrawer popup menu set to Always Closed, yet it is NEVER closed. Is there som...

List Items Begin with Gray Tab

The tab that follows each of my list bullets and numbers has a gray background.

I cannot find a way to get rid of them either in the Lists pallette or any other style tool.

Any ideas?

Feature Request for Filename

Just making my annual request for the next version of Nisus Writer.

If you don't go right, what's left? Right?

I copied and pasted text from a normal Web page and ended up with a document that reverses the right and left arrow keys. This sounds like a problem similar to the one in this thread: http://www.nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1300 What is going on, and how can I reverse the reverse? I could paste p...

Re: Table Cell Borders Unexpected Behavior

I have confirmed that this was a bug introduced by v1.3. Earlier versions behave properly.
