Re: Deceitful Sales Messages-

Interesting. The unfortunate thing about Swatch is that it provides something foreign to the current concept of time markers. Zulu retains the traditional hour/minute/second concept but standardizes for the entire world. I can’t imagine Swatch being adapted much outside a specific scientific communi...

Re: Table of Contents shows same page number for all entries

I have Glims installed as well. Didn't interfere with download.

Re: Table of Contents shows same page number for all entries

Hmmm, just tried Safari (10.7.2) and no problems.

Howdy. Not sure what went wrong for you. I downloaded just fine. What browser are you using? (I used Chrome)

Re: Deceitful Sales Messages-

One more thought. The advantage of Zulu time: it is never affected by changes such as Daylight Savings time (a couple states in US do not make that change, and it changes every few years on start and stop dates). With Zulu, it is constant throughout the world. It takes a little getting used to it, b...

Re: Deceitful Sales Messages-

That is correct, ninjagame. When I served in the US Navy (I went in 39 years ago!) and "sailed the world" (sort of) we always used zulu time for work with NATO and SEATO countries. That way we always were synched on the exact same time, no time zone confusion. Even though I left the active duty Navy...

Re: Deceitful Sales Messages-

Mark, as much as I travel, I would just as soon adopt the Zulu time method (we did in the military). Much easier, everyone understands everyone else, and never any confusion about time.

Re: Deceitful Sales Messages-

Not sure what you are talking about. I received an email announcing the sale today.

In my dealings with Nisus since 1993, I have never found them to be deceitful, rather very helpful, upfront, and knowledgeable. Oh that other software companies lived to this standard!

Re: Embedding lists into paragraph styles

BTW, the method Geoff describes for setting up styles applies to most word processors and page layout programs. I teach seminary students, and most have never heard of style sheets. I stress the importance of such when tackling major writing projects in seminary.

Well done, Geoff.

Re: Newbie: How to insert text box?

Yes, I am using 2.0 of NWP. It might be worth it (for many features) to upgrade your copy.

Re: Newbie: How to insert text box?

On the Toolbar next to the Navigator button (see NWP001).

Click that button: It will tell you to draw the text box anywhere (NWP002)

Completed (NWP003), note that it is anchored to whatever paragraph was selected (far left side).

(Well, my images come out in reverse order, but you get the idea.)

Re: Problem: resized margins not reflected in Table of Conte

Martin, just a question. Would it help to have a separate section for the TOC, which would allow independent page margins for each section? Would the TOC still update properly (apart from page margin conditions)? That might be asolution.

Re: NWP 2.0.2

Did you use the Dock's "Show in Finder" contextual menu to verify that you only have one copy of NWP on your computer? If that checks out, then you might try rebuilding your OSX launch services database; it's the part of OSX responsible for generating those "Open With" menus. Yes, I used Dock “Show...

Re: NWP 2.0.2

With the two instances of NWP showing in the Ctrl+Click scenario. If the file I do that with is .rtf, then only one instance of NWP shows up. If it is .doc, .odt, .mellel, then NWP shows up twice. The only application to ever do that, and only since upgrading to 2.0.2.

Re: NWP 2.0.2

It's possible that you have an extra copy of NWP on your hard drive somewhere. If you launch both, you can use the Dock's contextual menu Options > Show in Finder to figure out where they are. Thanks, Martin. A couple follow on questions. When I look in the Applications folder, there is only one in...
