Re: Development pace

Jeez, Exe, don't give the game away. Of course it doesn't take much to make old codgers content, but if we tell Nisus they'll still be lurking around launching v.2 practically tomorrow in about 2023!!! :o Warm regards Geoffrey Heard How old codger of me, to think that reminiscing about the good old...

Re: Development pace

Just reading The Nisus Way and it brings back memories of the good old days. I started and stopped using Nisus two different times, but finally began using it regularly in 1999, when beginning work on a book project. Word 98 was choking after 50 pages. Nisus never did choke! Ah the memories. Sometim...

Re: Any updates coming for NWP?

Is that all it takes to get to get heaven? 3 Rulers?

Geoff, you’re cheap! :lol:

Seriously after all the years Geoff has mentioned this, I almost think I would be unpatriotic to the Nisus world if I also didn’t request vertical rulers.

Re: Any updates coming for NWP?

I’m impressed! An advocate for vertical rulers AND a fashion conscious one on top of that!

Who could ask for a better combination?! I imagine Mrs. greenmorpher is the luckiest person on the planet.

Re: Any updates coming for NWP?

I What I really didn't like was the new Ruler policy: the ruler has been totally removed from the standard edition, and you can now purchase an optional package including one, two or three rulers. Prices are unknown, but I would find nice if at least the one-ruler option could be released for free ...

Re: blank lines in numbered list

Howdy. I believe the second item you select and choose from the list menu “continue list” and it should become #2.

Re: Spelling as you type

On item #4, I checked Spell Catcher and that seems to have solved it.

Re: Spelling as you type

Are you sure all the text in your document has the proper language applied? Select one of those squiggled/underlined words and then verify the applied language (the most straightforward is to look at the menu Format > Language ). Is the expected menu checkmarked? Remember, a document can have many ...

Spelling as you type

It seems that every document I open, about 80% of the words are underlined as if misspelled, but they are not. The only solution is to go to Edit > Spelling > Spelling as you type (to unselect it). Is there something that should be done to correct this? Even after I do this, if I close the file and ...

Re: Columns and Text Boxes

No, Mellel will not help you with this project. I use NWP and Mellel, but I also have InDesign for these kinds of special needs (except for Hebrew). I use Mellel for that. But I also have Papyrus. I used for a book four years ago. It sort of handles Hebrew, but only on a word by word basis, so a lit...

I would assume that the best place to ask this question is at the Accordance Forums.

Re: An approximating spell checker

Ah, so more of an extension of a Thesaurus of sorts for correctly spelled words, but functioning like Spell Catcher (list produced where each one can be selected by using a number). Okay, I think I see the difference. Yes, that would be handy.

Re: An approximating spell checker

What I am thinking of is a spell checker that regarded words spelt correctly as possibly incorrect so that when you clicked on them you would get a menu of words that might be the right one in context. An example is "form" and "from". I occasionally type "form" when I mean to type "from". NWP doesn...

Re: Assigning Option+Cmd 8

Howdy. CMD + Option + 8 may already be assigned. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts. I believe under Universal Access, that shortcut may be assigned to zoom in/out.
