Hm. I've never used the sections feature before, but I just tried Craig's steps with a 25-page document I had already created, and it worked perfectly and easily. I already had page numbering in the header, then I inserted a section break. Then, with the cursor in the next section (not the header), ...

I think I have figured out the how and the why of the US English domination and it's to go to Express's preferences select general/advanced tab and press the 'edit file' tab. Change the input 'flag' to British and the thesaurus to English(British) and then select save from the main file menu and th...

I assume your system language is set to UK English? I believe that might make a difference. Also, one of the most frequent times this happens (in my experience and from what it sounds like on this forum) is from other people's documents -- particularly those made in M$ Word. Um, I'm not sure what th...

What are the advantages of this format? Does it provide any particular benefits? OpenDoc Boy, my face is red! :oops: I somehow forgot the whole OpenDoc thing. For some reason the full name "OpenDocument" didn't bring it back for me. Fortunately, I think my other question still goes: is it worth it?...

What are the advantages of this format? Does it provide any particular benefits? Second, are there any programs that use this format but don't support RTF? As stross mentioned, it may not be too difficult to add support for this format, and so it could be any easy and simple addition. However, if th...

I hear Micro$haft's kitchen sink has a garbage disposal unit (but it clogs a lot).

Ah, yes. Thanks, Craig, for explaining that. Those would be quite useful, particularly for making Tables of Contents. Come to think of it, there are a few other TOC features that would be nice... but I get dreaming quickly.

Just another bit about the file extension and opening: try adding ".rtf" to the end of the filename. The most certain way is to do this in the "Get Info" window (File > Get Info...). If that doesn't fix it, you can use the Get Info window to change what app opens the file. This may not be a permanen...

A big advantage to the potential of LinkBack, as I see it, is the expansion potential. Any developer who supports LinkBack automatically benefits from every other developer who uses it. If I release a new program that does something no one's ever seen before, but has LinkBack, you could automaticall...

Possibly even more exciting than the fact that NWE and Omni apps will be able to embed dynamic pieces of documents in each other's docs, is the fact that these apps will be able to embed things from my LinkBack app. And my app will be able to embed NWE and Omni docs! Any developer can use this stuff...

Sorry to be the voice of dissent, but I actually prefer having separate windows, with separate documents managed however I want them. I prefer the simplicity of just a window with my text, and a drawer I can slide in and out for my tools. Simple, sleek, elegant. Of course, in some applications the s...

Personally, I would prefer the flags. Icons are easy for quick identification. And they never confused me, I understood their purpose right away.
