Re: NW PRO won't open WORD 04 DOCs

Some essential layout features are still missing, like titles extending over more columns, side headings, run-in headings.
Just a note: InDesign 6 (part of CS4) includes what is called nested styles, which allows run-in headings.

Re: NWP Compatible With Snow Leopard?

It might be good if Dave or Martin could notify officially them of compatibility with SL: http://snowleopard.wikidot.com/

I would probably opt for Papyrus. It handles that kind of stuff very well. Runs on both Mac and Windows, and runs in RAM, which makes it super fast.

Re: changing styles doesn't work for me

Just a thought: After selecting all paragraphs with that style, can you go to Format > Remove Attributes and Styles? And while it is still selected, can you apply a new style that way?

Re: Nisus Writer and technical writing

I have both Ragtime and Papyrus and have used both for projects over the past three years. Ragtime worked better for shorter projects (for me), like newsletters. This past year I began working with it for longer projects and finally was able to set it up the way I desired. Recently my work demanded ...

Re: [OT] Page layout & first line indent

Yes, I took it as a new paragraph symbol as well, :) but which paragraph style is proper is the question. Should the paragraph style that follows a quote be flush left like paragraph 1 is in the example, or should it have the first line indented paragraph style, like paragraph 3 in the example? Thus...

Re: [OT] Page layout & first line indent

It depends...

If the thought of the following paragraph after the quotation continues the thought of the preceding paragraph, then use #1. However, if this paragraph after the quotation begins a new thought, then use the indented paragraph.

I think that 1.0.2 is still beta. Martin mentioned something about Nisus continuing to check it out once Leopard was publicly released, and then releasing 1.0.2.

Howdy and welcome to the world of Nisus.

Perhaps the best way would be using AppleScript to change the file extensions in a directory. A google search should turn up some code for you.

(BTW, I am also shades on this board, but posted with this handle.)

Howdy. Not sure, but my question is: Does the document control the auto-complete?
