Not what I said. Sorry for the confusion. I wasn't responding to you, but instead to the general tenor of the thread. I've never been one to cotton to threads complaining about speculation about the pricing or features of unreleased products. The problem with an app like Writer is that everyone has...

Re: Lists

I'm so frustrated. How do I add a list from my paragraph styles to my lists menu? Thank you. Caat I don't think you can; and my immediate thought is why would you want to? Essentially, a list item is a special type of paragraph; a paragraph is not a special instance of a list. I would have thought ...

Re: Columns

I am relatively new to Nisus so forgive me if this is a dumb question. I am preparing a paper with two or three columns. I want to break the columns so the corresponding left and right hand sides will match each other in length. How do I do this? When I tried to insert a column break text on the le...

Re: Fixed line height

I am surprised that you lay the blame for not supporting this on Apple's text layout engine: Word supports this feature (although I abominate using Word), and the last release of Word Perfect for Mac (V. 3.5.4, a ten year old program) also supports it. Micro$oft Wierd and Word Perfect, both use the...

Yes, I have been thinking about that too, a macro should at least be able to be of some assistance with that? BUT I have been wondering about Nisus Writer Express 6.5 that they used to make the NWE User's Guide. That version must have table of contents and indexing? Nisus Writer Classic, you mean ....

Mark, You can click the "AIM" button underneath and of my posts to send me an IM. I did appreciate that, but when I first got your message, I had to go out and teach, and we now have the problem that you are off-line ... I guess it's the probably the middle of the night for you. I'll try again some...

Mark: AIM me and I can hook you up with it. Thanks Midwinter ... I wasn't sure what to aim you at ... :D Seriously, thanks for your advice. I thought the best thing was to do an "archive and install" to my bootable back-up disk, rather than replacing the main system on the MBP. After 2 or 3 hours o...

Re: need help switching to French layout

Is there a reference that someone can point me to to see which keys map to which French accented letters? Any documentation on using Nisus to write in another language would be appreciated as well. I am trying to switch betwen writing in French and writing in English but I am not having much luck. ...

You can do an archive and install of the OS and make sure you install the extra fonts. Not that attractive because of the amount of time I would need to make sure everything else in the system was transferred across. Alternately, you *may* be able to *only* install the fonts package of the OS, but ...

As a long time fan of both NWE and OmniGraffle and fully paid-up user of both--and so someone for whom LinkBack is the bees knees--for any drawing as such I will always use OG and LinkBack, and very much look forward to the day when NWE will be able to flow text round graphics. But on the other hand...

Only sort of O/T ...

... but as the software it involved almost entirely is NWE, and you guys are geniuses--with or without bananas :D ... Since moving to this new machine--17" MacBook Pro! Yummy!--and, for reasons that are of no consequence, re-installing the whole system, software, etc., I seem to have lost my Simplif...
