Re: Footnotes adjacent to hyperlinks

The plot thickens: I've just discovered that if I take the RTF file from which the footnotes have disappeared and open it within Word, all the footnotes are there.

So the footnotes have not actually been lost: they simply aren't being displayed in NWP.

Footnotes adjacent to hyperlinks

Hi, I've been having a frustrating problem with Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.2 on a Mac running OS X 10.6.8. Writing in French, I have a document in which I insert footnotes adjacent to hyperlinked words - and then find on saving then reopening the document that all the footnotes have vanished. The footnote...

"Remind me later" (but not every five minutes...)

I love Nisus Writer Pro, use it every day and will soon get round to downloading the new version, I promise! However this morning I have some really urgent work to do... A little suggestion: maybe you good folks could reduce the frequency with which the program interrupts me to ask if I want to inst...

Re: Exporting to HTML without stylesheet info

Ralph: many thanks for your reply. I'd already noticed that when I copy (command-C) text from an MS Word file into a Wordpress window, the attributes are conserved (including links to footnotes), and I can then see the data as HTML. Needless to say, in true Word fashion the latter is pretty messy. H...

Re: Exporting to HTML without stylesheet info

Many thanks for that, Martin Jerry's macro indeed seems like the kind of thing I'm looking for, although I fear that implementing it may be beyond my current rather modest abilities. More generally, I'm interested in the ways a document can be made "interoperable" in the sense that it can be switche...

Exporting to HTML without stylesheet info

Hi, I'm looking for the most efficient way to export a file to HTML, but without the stylesheet data that's inserted via the standard NWP command. The idea would be to disregard parameters such as fonts and colours, and simply map the RTF content defined in my simple NWP template to basic HTML tags....

Some kind of XML

I've been hearing for years about XML, have understood its usefulness but have never actually found a way of using it for my own work. I note that most of the web sites which discuss using XML for writing are oriented towards technical writers. Although I'm technically literate, most of my writing i...

After crash - reinstall NWP?

Hi, After over six months of trouble-free work with NWP, I've just had a nasty experience. I'd imported a Word document received over the Internet, opening it in Word, saving it as RTF and then reopening it under NWP. After a few minutes' work the document froze - I could open and close NWP, but I c...

Building an index

Hi, I'm a recent adopter of Nisus Writer, and am caught in the usual dilemma: I need to get on with my big writing project, and therefore don't always have the time to Read the Fabulous Manual or check in to the fabulous forums as much as I should. So forgive me if following questions have already b...

Re: Delays on "Save" command

Thanks for all the helpful replies. I conclude that my problem isn't really one, and that the delays are probably linked to the length and complexity of my documents. Concerning the "complexity" part, as a new user migrating from MS Word, I've already come to the conclusion that I will stop importin...

Delays on "Save" command

Hi, I'm busy discovering Nisus Writer Pro with great pleasure, after years of using MS Word. The search and replace possibilities, which I could previously use only on text documents via BBEdit, are alone worth the switch, but I'm discovering lots more advantages, such as the TOC, bookmark and index...
