Re: quotation mark causes text following to move to next lin

HI -

some logic just does not fit - is fooling us.
I listed alternative SPACES you can use to work around…

Re: quotation mark causes text following to move to next lin

HI -

strange SPACE indeed - after a quotation mark SPACE mis-behaves like FIGURE SPACE, as no-break character!
In TextEdit as well…

Re: "Facing Columns"

Hi - to me this feature request sounds like a screenplay feature - did you check Final Draft/Movie Draft/Slugline, to name just the ones listed under "Apps for Writers" in the App Store.

Re: Em spaces, en spaces, etc.

Again -

keyboards are system related - so you change [them once and] for all applications using Ukele, see my URL before. This is the way my German Extended keyboard works:

Hi Paolo -

modifying any keyboard is easily done with SIL's Ukelele:

Re: Permissions extensions problem

Hi - I remember same thing happening - "cocoa error code 512". I had to restart hardware - the file was then "read/write enabled for me" - and saved as it should "on second try". I seem to remember this happening a couple of times, but it's Mavericks I thought and it's gone with 10.9.3 hopefully?! HE

Re: Somebody please make a tutorial for NW Pro!

Hi Richard - in the days of old & Nisus Classic, there was this famous book of Joe Kissell: "The Nisus Way" - and I remember some time ago he asked the forum about topics for a new Nisus Writer book project.

RTF in the cloud

Hi -

just bought "Mach Write" at the App Store. "A new RTF & TXT Editor [and PDF Viewer] for iOS and OS X" - Mavericks I guess. The app is free for iOS and 1.99 only for OS X - a beginning maybe. But with my still iPhone ONE I am out off anything! Who's to tell more?

Re: Vertical text w/in textbox

Hi - the Unicode Standard has this: "Unlike the bidirectional case, the choice of vertical layout is usually treated as a formatting style; therefore, the Unicode Standard does not define default rendering behavior for vertical text nor provide directionality controls designed to override such behav...

Re: Nisus crashes under Mavericks

Hi Geoff - yes the good "old times" - my home grown System 7.5.3 did combine Chinese, Korean, Japanese with English/German in the same line of text in Nisus Writer - and never ever crashed. But "Times Are Changing" - get an unibody MacBook Pro & full RAM & SSD startup and you work in "real time" - a...
