Re: Text Color Screen Options

Howdy. Not sure I understand what you desire, but you could set up a character style for normal, then another for your color of choice (white). You can base paragraph styles on that character style, then when ready to print, etc. just change the paragraph style to be "normal" color.

Re: multiple streams of footnotes

If we have to go with Windows, then Nota Bene might be the best option?

Re: Slower than Molasses In January

I would also like to see an Intel-only version of NWP (or at least the importer).

Re: NWP as default application

Howdy. In the Finder, Control+click on a .doc file and choose Get Info... In the resulting window, about ⅔ of the way down, it says “open with” select whatever application you want to use (i.e. Word), then click the box below “Always open with”.

Re: NW PRO won't open WORD 04 DOCs

Greetings. Looks like we both might be right. Nested Styles allows the user to adjust the length of the run-in, by using the "up to" portion, and then including something special, like the en-space.

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.
