Re: Saving documents

Back again. I still find it curious that a saved file should disappear. I just did it again. I opened a file - actually a .dot file and so I had an untitled document. I made changes (it's a letterhead, and I've moved), saved the file on the desktop as "new letterhead" (and it appeared on the desktop...

Re: Saving documents

Hi Martin, Thanks for that, I can deal with it now I know how, but it seemed to me particularly curious that I could go through what appeared to be a process of saving, and see the file on my desktop, and then have it disappear (not even in the trash) when I closed the file (clicking "delete" admitt...

Re: Saving documents

Thanks for the explanation, as long as I know...! Although I see in the saving preferences I can't select another folder for autosave - Document Manager is the only local choice, all the others appear to be in a dark room in Palo Alto.

Re: Saving documents

Ok, I see what's happening, despite documents bing saved where I think I have saved them, they are going into user/Documents/Nisus Documents. So they are not completely lost. But why the change, and why does the document I save on the Desktop (or anywhere else) completely vaporize? Please can we go ...

Saving documents

Why has the saving new file process changed? This is what happens to me: 1. Create a new document ("untitled") and add text. 2. CMD-S makes the file menu flash, so the assumption is that it saves, but I know not where. There is no prompt, presumably it is being called "untitled" in a backup folder. ...

Re: Future viability of Nisus

Let's not forget either that Apple has a good track record of discontinuing software and walking away, leaving people (such as me) with files they can no longer open (Claris Works, Apple Works, iWeb, etc.). I'll stick with Nisus, thanks.

embedded text

A long, long time ago (I can still remember...) I used a facility in NWE to embed text. This is at least 10 years ago, probably more. It was quite cool, I recall, because I could write an article and just link in big chunks from another NWE document rather than either cut and pasting or retyping, an...

2 NWPs?

Not sure if this is a NWP question or an OS question but I've noticed something curious. Going to the info box in Finder (the one where you select a file and click cmd-I) and selecting "Open with" gives me a list of apps, on which NWP2 appears twice. I've searched my hard drive and I only have one c...

Re: Why are my endnotes roman numerals?

Thanks Martin, Fixed the endnotes, probably imported the style from someone else... The page breaks can't be removed, I even delete the text before and after the break, when I put a return back in the page breaks again... Either that, or it forces a break before the preceding paragraph. I'll send it...

Why are my endnotes roman numerals?

I've just done a global change from footnotes to endnotes (in an attempt - which failed - to get rid of unwanted and invisible page breaks) and my endnotes now all have roman numerals. NWP 2.0.4 and OS 10.7.4 Can anyone suggest why I have roman numerals? And you get a bonus if you can tell me how to...

Re: Scrolling bug?

I just thought I'd mention that I'm still having this problem (in NWP 2.0.2 now), occasionally and apparently arbitrarily. I'm experimenting on an open file, sometimes it's fine, sometimes when I click and hold the text scrolls in the opposite direction. There seems to be no logic to it, I've done n...

Re: Bizarre file legacy problems

Ok, it appears that there is a "track option" mode in Word which allows the delete key to work as a strikethrough key, but which (I would imagine) is not actually formatting it as a strikethrough, nor deleting it. So when is is opened in Nisus the word is neither properly formatted as strikethough (...

Re: Bizarre file legacy problems

She tells me that to strikethough a word she presses the delete key on her keyboard. I have no idea how this creates a strikethough rather than deleting the word - which, as a non-Word user, would be what I would logically expect... probably why I don't use Word :-) And the struckthough word from wh...
