I found the same thing, then I made a guess that it might be case sensitive. Sure enough, when I typed the menu command I was looking for with the first letter of each word capped, it found it.

NWE 2.0 inherits 1.1.2 bug

Here's a bug I've come across in both versions. Oftentimes (not always), when I'm working in Page View, and my paragraph of text ends on the last line of a page, I'll hit a carriage return and absolutely nothing happens. No new paragraph. No jumping to the top of the next page. I'll hit another carr...

Stripped character styles

Here's an interesting phenomenon I just discovered. I pasted in some text into a 2.0 style sheet template, applied paragraph styles to it, then discovered that all the character formatting (bold, italics, etc.) had been stripped off. Bummer. Why does applying a paragraph style strip off the characte...

Major problems with 2.0

Charles, if you've read my other posts (and I know you have), then you know I'm using NWE 2.0 to write and edit a book. I created a style sheet template, opened one of my existing book chapters (created in 1.1.2), pasted all the text into my new template, then applied the new styles. Here's what I f...

Painfully slow scrolling

I just copied all the text from a 70-page NWE 1.1.2 document into a new 2.0 template, applied styles, and found that the scrolling -- whether I use the mouse wheel or the scroll bar -- is numbingly slow. Anyone else notice this?

Save As document template bug

Okay, I've been putting 2.0 through its paces, and mostly I'm very impressed. I've come across what I think is a bug in the way it saves documents. As I noted in another post, I'm trying to create a template for my book chapters. I created the template, did a Save As, selected Document Template from...

Table in header -- odd behavior

I'm trying to create a template for my book chapters, which means I need to put a lot of information in the header. It seemed like using a table would give me a lot of control over how the info is placed. But I tried inserting an automatic page number in the right-hand cell. Instead of the page numb...

Jim, Regardless of what NWE 2.0 offers in the future, I think you'd be far better off using Screenwriter 2000 or Final Draft for teleplays. No standard word processor (including Mariner Writer, MSoft Word, or NWE 2.0) is going to provide "continued's" or "more's" and format the teleplay with the eas...

I like your logic, Todd, if not your drink choices. But I read somewhere that Nisus is keen on releasing new products on Thursdays. I'm not sure I understand why -- something to do with news cycles. So if they find a bug on September 10th, I imagine the release will be delayed until the following Th...

This is a real longshot, eo, but I thought I'd ask anyway: do you, by any chance, have a wheel mouse that comes with its own software? If so, is it possible you have the behavior of the left button set on an app by app basis.

Until reading this post, I had thought that drag/drop didn't work in my version of NWE. But I went back to look at it again. Here's where I think the problem is: in most Mac apps, when you hover the cursor over selected text, the I-beam cursor changes to a pointer. By doing so, it tells you visually...

Spell check bug

I mentioned in another post that I'm new to NWE, and I've been using it to write a chapter in my book. It's a good word processor -- very functional and convenient. But I've found a couple of bugs that are fairly annoying. The first one I already mentioned in a previous post -- the line spacing seem...

My line spacing feature has Alzeimer's

Here's an odd thing, one that I haven't seen addressed anywhere on this forum. I'm a new NWE user, so I'll admit up front that there may be a lot about it I don't know. But this just seems weird: I'm a writer and I set up a book chapter I'm writing with NWE to have spacing of 1.7 lines. When I shut ...
