Re: Large selections—like 20k words—showing no word, par., or char. counts (bug?)

Got it! Works! Thanks Martin. Great! I'm glad to hear it :) An extra click is much easier than copy-pasting every time. My only regret, on behalf of myself and adryan, is that you weren't here yesterday. But we must put that down to limited processing time too I'll guess. :-) Haha, yes indeed! I'm ...

Re: Export to docx problem.

I'm sorry you're having trouble with DOCX export. I have a few questions for you:

1. Have you tried restarting your entire Mac? Sometimes that can clear out temporary problems.
2. Is there an error message on screen? If so, what does it say exactly?

Please let us know how you get along.

Re: runaway Nisus File Converter

I'm sorry for the trouble Brad. This seems to be a problem that's new to recent versions of Nisus Writer Pro. We're still investigating what we can do to solve it for a future software update. In the meantime please don't ever worry about killing the runaway converter process via force quit. That's ...

Re: Large selections—like 20k words—showing no word, par., or char. counts (bug?)

When I select large amounts of text, characteristically over 20,000 words, nothing shows in the Stats pallette, and the bottom of the page just says "1 Selection" instead of showing the number of words This occurs when Nisus Writer takes too long to count the number of words in the selection. We do...

Re: Bug? Nisus 3 seemingly randomly "Typesetting Text..." and sluggish, 50% CPU use, in long doc already open for hours

If I edit, say, in the first thousand words of a 400K document, does that mean that all the typesetting from that point onwards is being done over again, every time I make a change? That's more or less correct. If you make an edit somewhere in a document, all the downstream content must be re-types...

Re: Bug? Nisus 3 seemingly randomly "Typesetting Text..." and sluggish, 50% CPU use, in long doc already open for hours

There's one explanation for the behavior you observed. Is your large document set to Draft View, but the search results can only be displayed in Page View? For example, if the find matches are in the headers/footers. That will force Nisus Writer to paginate your document, to show you the matching te...

Re: Permanently floating Styles Palette

Thanks for the update Mark. It sounds like your Nisus Writer settings were being overwritten externally, which continually reset your floating palette configuration. You can pick a folder for those Nisus settings in your General preferences, under "synchronized settings location". That location can ...

Re: Permanently floating Styles Palette

What you described is unexpected Mark. If you have a floating palette visible when you quit Nisus Writer, it should be automatically restored when you later relaunch the app. I actually use that setup with the Formatting Examiner palette: it remains visible and floating at all times. I just tested w...

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....

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...
