Can I open old Classic Nisus Writer documents?

Yes, Nisus Writer Pro can read Classic Nisus Writer documents (from the Mac OS 9 era). There are some limitations, so the first time you open and import a Classic document, you should look it over to make sure all your text is intact. I opened my Classic document and all formatting is gone! The most...

Thanks for your answer dave. So does it mean that the upgrade price from 1.x to 2.x for academic user and normal user is the same? I want to make sure because I have previous experience in which an academic license holder need to pay more for the software upgrade. No, you would pay the academic pri...

As I wrote in January , we don't have a thing to do with the list, and there really isn't anything we can do about it. The list owner is unresponsive, and I seriously doubt that he is looking at our forums. You may want to write to the list, in the chance that the list owner may see it and fix it. A...

Apple has included several importers (plug-ins) for Spotlight, including RTF, Mail, JPEG, PDF and MP3. Since Nisus Writer Express's native file format is RTF, documents are easily indexed by the syste...

Why do my Word (.doc) documents have a Nisus icon?

Since Nisus Writer Express opens ".doc" files, the Finder has to choose between the two applications to open this file. How does the system determine which application to open these files? Something called Launch Services looks at, among other things, the file extension to determine which applicatio...

Of course, now that I wrote that nothing had changed, something has changed. The archives for January seem to work now. Go figure.

As this is not our list, all I can do is to write to the list mom. I did that last week, but I have not heard anything. If I do hear something, I will let you know.

I kind of get the sense that Nisus has some neat things in store for us, hence the relative silence before the storm... or, er, before the wave... or, uh, hm. Well, before something good. I don't know...remarkable silence at Nisus means one of the following: 1) New stuff in the next version? I thin...

Re: NWX - Invaluable Assistant

NWX is assisting me in expanding my short story rejection letter collection. It is also helping me write a novel; but not enough... I should pipe up and say that NWE helped me get the weirdest rejection letter from an academic journal I've ever gotten. If you sent the manuscript with your avatar at...
