When I clear undos or clipboards, memory does not increase.

It is, in fact, very accurate--it's just not telling you what you expect it to. Think of it this way. Create a big file and drag it to your Trash can. Does the amount of free space on your hard drive increase? No. But when you Empty Trash, the file is deleted, and more space becomes available. Nisus Writer treats RAM the same way. When you clear Undos or Clipboards, it marks the portion of your RAM they were occupying as "purgeable." The next time you need that extra memory for something, it automatically does "garbage collection," meaning the memory is freed up for the other use. The memory indicator doesn't tell you how much will be available after that happens, but it does tell you how much is actually free at any given moment.
