Re: Table Cell Borders Unexpected Behavior

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

Table Cell Borders Unexpected Behavior

--Nisus Writer Pro 1.3------ In a table, select one or more cells. In the Table Cell Borders Palette, select a single border. • If you change the border style, NW applies the change only to the selected border. • If you change the border thickness, NW applies the change only to the selected border. ...

Leopard Icons

Leopard displays all my Nisus Writer Pro icons as generic RTF documents, even though Get Info… confirms that they are to be opened using Nisus Writer. The problem is that Leopard, unlike Tiger, fails to display the little padlock indicating that a file is locked in the Finder. There's no way to tell...

Well, the good news is that this works. The bad news is that it also removes HTML links from words in the text. Oh, well. Consider this a feature request, then.

Pasted Web Content Background Color

How do I get rid of the background color in a block of text pasted from a website? I'm not talking about the highlight color often attached to an HTML paragraph. That's easily fixed by selecting None from the Nisus highlight menu. I'm not talking about tables, either. I'm talking about entire blocks...

Wrong

I was wrong. The status of the Tooldrawer is not sticky for long. Eventually, it always reverts to the sections palette group, no matter what you do. I haven't narrowed it down to when and where, but it always does.

I guess this is now a feature request.

Tooldrawer Defaults

There is a way to force the Tooldrawer always to open with the formatting palette group selected -- but not for the Header. When you CREATE Nisus New File.dot, it remembers (1) whether the Tooldrawer was open, and (2) which palatte was selected in the Tooldrawer. When you MODIFY Nisus New File.dot b...

Tip: The Help file launches Adobe Reader by default. If you would rather have Preview open the manual, right-click on the Nisus Writer application, and select "Show Package Contents". (After quitting Nisus Writer, naturally!) The file is Contents/Resources/help.pdf. From here, you can Get Info and c...

I changed that line to

Code: Select all

Find and Replace '[\n\r]{1}', ' ', 'Esa'
So that it replaces only single occurences of a return. I think the default macro shipped with a typo.

I believe that's the problem.

Code: Select all

Find and Replace '[\n\r]+', ' ', 'Esa'
Replaces all double-spaces with a space. I would like it not to do that.

Form Paragraph Macro

Earlier versions of Nisus Writer used to ship with a "Form Paragraph" macro that preserved double-spaces in the selected text. Does anyone still have that routine/macro you could post for me? I'm having a tough time converting the perl macro so that it doesn't turn all the selected text into one mas...

Find will not find HTML Characters

When you copy a list from a Web page, how does NWP convert the content? For example, the underlying HTML is: <ul> <li>Item 1</li> <li>Item 2</li> </ul> When you paste this into a Nisus document, you get ?[gray rect]Item 1 ?[gray rect]Item 2 You cannot perform a Find and Replace of these leading garb...

Disappearing blocks of text

Frequently, when I delete a paragraph in a document, all the paragraphs above it will disappear. I cannot get them to redraw by changing magnification, resizing the document or by scrolling. The paragraphs are just gone. The only option is to Revert to the last saved version. This occurs on two diff...

Automatic Document Naming

Here is a feature request along the same lines. I might be dreaming, but I seem to recall that Nisus Classic was able to name a new document automatically upon Save. It would suggest the first line of a document as its title. This would make a major contribution to my workflow. Please put it somewhe...
