automatic new document

I've just upgraded to 2.1.4 and notice that NWP automatically opens a new document based on my template if there are no files open. This happens both if I tab though to NWP and if I double-click on a file to open it (if there are no files already open). Can I stop this? I generally don't want it, pa...

Re: change roman to arabic in ToC

Thanks. In the end I got the document's creator to rebuild, although it probably would have worked if I'd done it, too.

change roman to arabic in ToC

Hi all, someone has sent me a document to format and pdf, but although the page numbers are in Arabic numerals, the ToC has them in Roman. I can't find out how to change this, and there doesn't seem to be anything in the manual, the assumption being it should somehow be automatic...?

Re: Underline

And even curiouser - if I try and copy past, as soon as I select some text to copy the baseline offset reverts to 0 before I even copy, never mind try and paste it elsewhere. But as we know, my NWP does curious things.

Re: Underline

Hi Adrian, Sorry, my reply doesn't seem to have been posted. But I said thanks :) and that I'd probably be satisfied with paragraph borders. For the record I seem to have set (on my original document) the underline baseline at +5 pt, but quite how I have no idea, and as I say, even if I save this se...

Underline

A very long time ago I drew up a document which had subheadings (that I created without using a style) that had underlines that were 1. right acorss the page (I used spaces, not tabs, presumably because I couldn't work out how to do it using tabs) and 2. further from the text than is usual (ie more ...

Re: No more autosave

Thanks Martin, this sounds good. All I want is the prompt... :) I'll give it a go.

Re: No more autosave

I haven't upgraded yet, but perhaps someone (indeed, even Martin) can answer - my issue is not with autosave as such, but the fact that there is no initial prompt - which means that apart from anything else all my documents are called "Untitled (n)", where "n" was edging up into 3 figures before I d...

Re: Saving documents

And, indeed, the files that are open in the application after the relaunch of the update. Not the ones that were open before the upgrade, but at least a week older. Now I have to remember what I was doing... :-)

Re: Saving documents

Interesting how items in the "Open recent" sub-menu are several iterations old after the upgrade. Or is this just me again...?

Re: Saving documents

It was the zip that I used - I've now tried the update in "Check for Updates" and it works fine.

Thanks!

Re: Saving documents

I upgraded to Mavericks a few months ago, probably the worst decision of my life (although there was an incident in 1982 which comes close, but I won't go into it here). Anyway, it took me about a week full time to downgrade back to 10.7.5 (I'd done a new full back up wth Mavericks and all my 10.7.5...

Re: Saving documents

I spoke too soon in any case, yesterday I ended up with three copies of a file on the desktop and when I thought I'd saved and then closed it, two of them disappeared. At least I still had one... I'm using 10.7.5. Should I downgrade NWP?

Re: Saving documents

Thank you, I think this has done it - removed the "keep without asking" option. Everything's back to normal.
