I'm seeing spots before my eyes

Here's a topic I've been meaning to post for months, but forgot about until this morning. Every now and then (in other words, totally at random) I'll be merrily typing along, and tiny black dots will appear above each letter as it appears on the screen. If I scroll the dots off the screen, then scro...

Charles, One little thing you could tweak that would help would be to show the paragraph marker at the end of the paragraph where the insertion point is. Even though I always choose to Show Invisibles, the current paragraph marker doesn't show until I hit a carriage return. Mariner Write shows it fo...

Charles,

As always, I appreciate your responses. I'll take a look at your scenario and see if I might be doing what you suggested.

The underling just starts again, and continues until I tell it to stop. By the way, I just tried to reproduce the bug, but didn't have any luck. Odd that it appeared three times yesterday. I'm having the worst luck with this software.

What do I type? What are you looking for here, Charles? I was simply making a page of notes, with underlined subheads. I'd type the subhead, highlight it, then apply underlining. I'd then hit a carriage return, start typing some text, remember that I'd had underlining on, select the text, then remov...

Peter,

NWE 2 seems to be my lucky application. I'm discovering all sorts of bugs other users aren't experiencing.

Phantom formatting

Here's another interesting bug I've found. I type a two-word paragraph, highlight the two words, then apply underlining. I hit a carriage return and, naturally, what I start typing on this new line is also underlined. I highlight all the text in the new line, then hit cmd-U to toggle underlining off...

Charles, The difference between his issue and mine is that he's reporting that the problem occurs in both NWE AND TextEdit. That would indicate a systemic Apple bug. But my problem occurs only in NWE. I can open a document in TextEdit that's pretty well screwed up in NWE, and the document's perfect....

Thinking that I might have a bad file, I did this: I opened the doc I sent to you, copied all the text (paragraph by paragraph) into my style sheet template. It seemed to introduce even new problems (indents, printing) aside from the original problem (blank pages). Mark has the most recent version.

Charles, If the blank pages were the only problem, life would be sweet. As it stands, I can't even use 2.0 or 2.0.1. In addition to blank pages, I get an indent on the LAST line of several paragraphs. Which means, every time I open my document, I not only have to eliminate the blank pages, but the i...

HeatherKay, I could easily be wrong about this, but I thought the key to what you said was that you were tinkering with the style prefs "with no document open." My understanding of how styles work is that they are attached to specific documents. So, in your case, with no document open, no saved styl...

Yes, I'm one of those users who wants the feature to behave in a different way. I'm a writer, and I'm converting about 100,000 words of text to NWE v. 2.0, and applying styles to them. To have to go back through a few hundred pages of documents, just to reapply character formatting because NWE 2 str...

Disappearing text

I've found that when I paste in a new paragraph, on some occasions, a few paragraphs before the insertion point will disappear, leaving a large white space. Oddly, when I click on the white space, the paragraphs will reappear, right where they're supposed to be.

I think you're talking about something slightly different, but I've also noticed the behavior you're referring to -- and I'd gladly sign the petition. Whether you issue a forced Page Break or a natural one (carriage return at end of page), you should get a view of the next page with the cursor place...
