Changing preferences (was NW6 to NWE)

1. I spoke too soon. When I try and change the keyboard shortcut for paragraph normal, it reverts to cmd-` on quit. I can't get it to stay changed. Should I trash preferences or something like that?

5. That seems to be it. I changed the units to inches and the tabs slide across very nicely, even pausing at regular (.25) intervals. Clearly a bug with the unit conversion. Let's hope it's fixed rapidly.

1. Thank you. I knew it would be there somewhere. 2. & 3. I can live without them, but the arrow would have been nice. 4. I had "fix typos" turned off and it didn't seem to be fixing any others, but I removed the "i" to "I" one anyway and it's stopped doing it. Strange. 5. When I very smoothly slide...

NW6 not MW6

Of course I meant NW6 and not MW6. Is there even an MW6?

Questions from MW6 to NWE

As I'm sure many before me have found (and some yet to come will do) there are differences between NW6 and NWE. I've not yet found answers to the following and would be grateful for responses. 1. "Cmd =" used to cycle through open windows. What's the new shortcut? 2. I really liked the way the curso...

Opening MS word files

I just can't do it. In NW6 I could open some files through the Catalog menu, but I've now moved to OSX and in NWE any attempt to open a MSW file either freezes NWE or opens a blank page.

There's nothing in Help, so, please, help!

Thanks.

Iain.
