Re: Permission to open Nisus Writer Pro

Thank you. I'll take a look at the FAQ and give it a try. For what it's worth, I get the same message when I open gmail, but then the msg immediately closes and the app opens. If you're having trouble with multiple apps then you probably need to do more. Even if our FAQ works to restore Nisus Write...

Re: using characterCase attribute

Hello Brad, welcome to using Nisus Writer and its macros! I'd like to write a general purpose "Toggle Case" macro that could be applicable to the Unicode range, changing the uppercase character at the caret to lowercase and vice versa. Perhaps you're writing this macro as a learning exercise. But if...

Re: How to use the command 'Scan Document' in a longer macro

This scenario is definitely a juggling act, and one that unfortunately won't be easily solved. Adding a delay to the macro may happen to work, but it's brittle. A delay assumes the time required to scan and process a document will always be uniform– that the time will always be under some threshold....

Re: Permission to open Nisus Writer Pro

Well, wouldn't you know. I clicked on the Nisus app icon, and it opened right up along with all the docs I'd been working on before this problem happened. Interesting. Well that's progress at least... Then I tried to open another doc that I keep in DropBox and was denied permission. The msg instruc...

Re: Permission to open Nisus Writer Pro

It's unusual that you would not have permission to launch an app on your Mac, whether that's Nisus Writer Pro or any other app. Before you take any drastic steps, or commit your free time to pursing Apple support, I would definitely try reinstalling Nisus Writer like so: 1. Trash all copies of the N...

Re: Joining Files

Dear Adrian: those all sound like reasonable and desirable enhancements to the Join Files macro. Unfortunately creating such a macro is currently very awkward or impossible. The settings you mentioned (paper size, margins, headers, etc) are all handled by sections, which macros do not have access to...

Re: Page numbers and Screen Splits

So, the PDF document reflects the content of the pane that was "active" at the time of its creation. Well that's not good. I hate to see this issue affect final output. Thanks for letting me know. Just for the record, I don't see myself going beyond Mojave for quite some time yet. From what I see o...

Re: Page numbers and Screen Splits

This is likely to be an issue specific to 10.14 Mojave. Vance privately sent us some test documents that do not show the bug on Catalina and Big Sur.

One question: is anyone having trouble with incorrect page numbers in printouts or PDFs? That would be a more serious issue if it affects final output.

Re: Show Invisibles

Actually, this already behaves as it should: if you change your Nisus New File template so it shows invisibles by default, then any non-Nisus files you import will follow those settings.

Re: Show Invisibles

As you probably know, Nisus Writer stores the "show invisibles" state inside each file separately. However, this is a custom Nisus specific enhancement to the RTF file format, so Scrivener and Word documents would never include it. I think the ideal solution is for any non-Nisus files to always foll...

Re: Page numbers and Screen Splits

This issue may only occur on specific older versions of macOS. I've not seen it on 10.15 Catalina (or later), but I believe it's been reported once before for Mojave. Vance: would you be able to send me an example document that exhibits the bug? I'm not sure if we'll be able to workaround this issue...

Equation editors on the Mac?

A customer recently wrote in and asked about the best macOS equation editing tools. In earlier times our answer was often to look at Math Magic or MathType, but those tools have faltered in recent years. I know some of our customers use LaTeX editors to insert equations in Nisus Writer documents, bu...

Re: How to replace png image with PDF version and keep size and spacing?

But maybe someone from Nisus (Martin?) could chime in about why individual images can't be replaced with other images and keep their layout characteristics? Couldn't that be added as a feature? This is the correct solution in the long-term. Nisus Writer should allow you to somehow replace an image ...

Re: Prevent word-wrap

It would be nice if Nisus Writer had a formatting feature to control this, ie: select the text and choose "Keep On Same Line" or something like that. I'll consider this forum thread a vote that we add such a feature in a future update. But yes, for now using the Zero-Width Joiner special character i...

Re: Finding superscript ordinal numbers

Here's a macro of Philip's find all PowerFind pattern. If you run the macro it will select all of the desired numeric ordinals so you can reformat them en-masse. The macro also opens a find results list, so you can skim the results or adjust the matches beforehand.
