Enlilbanda, I'm sorry for the long delay in my response. I did not see this message. There are a few issues "at play" here. A.

hatchmo, At the moment there is not a lot that the Nisus Macro language can do that AppleScript cannot. We are still working on an interface that will allow the "normal" word processor user (not engineer) to automate their word processing tasks. That written, I understand that there are some styles ...

Friends, It depends on what happens to be in the rtf file you're trying to open. If the file has tables, or "same-page section breaks", Nisus Writer Express does not, currently have these features and, therefore, cannot display (nor open) the file. We're working on this and it should be fixed in the...

NISUS crashes when I cut highlighted text

ag644, I'm sorry you experience difficulties with Nisus Writer Classic. I doubt that the reason for your crash has anything to do with the presence of Nisus Writer Express. I have the two running on my computer here at work and at home *all the time* and have never had the experience you describe, n...

Phil,

Nisus Writer Classic (6.5 and earlier) does not "know from Users".

Reinstall additional copies for the different users. Since only one user can *use* the computer and Nisus Writer Classic at any time, this does not run counter to the license agreement.

I hope this helps.

re: Changing keyboard scripts

Phil, The file seems to have lost its "resource fork". Just to confirm this... do other things, such as bold, italic, as well as font size get lost? In any case to "force" the "gibberish" back into Hebrew, select that text, press the SHIFT key and choose the Hebrew font your user wants from the Font...

problems with equations

I think that the following explains what you experience.

Currently, Nisus Writer Express turns every graphic it gets into a bitmap, which yields poor quality images in some cases. We know that we need to add vector graphic support. We hope to include it in the next version, if possible.

Switching languages

cchapin, This behavior is an unfortunate artifact of the nature of font substitution in Mac OS X. When you begin typing some characters not supported in the current font, OS X will switch to a font that does support the characters (it will switch to the secondary font first and then, if that does no...

Saving a document simutaneously on two disks

maxmcdowell,

This is a feature of Nisus Writer Classic. However, it is not, yet, available in Nisus Writer Express. It is on our feature request list.
