Nisus Writer Pro Crashes

I was formatting a book using Nisus Writer Pro V 1.0.3 and the document kept crashing during the 'save'. The document had a large number of pictures - approximately 200 - which added to the weight of it memory-wise.

The size of the completed document was 337.9 MB and it has taken me many hours more than it should have to get it finished because of this problem.

I have a an iMac G 5 with 2 gigs of RAM and lots of open space (195.17 GB available) on its hard disk and OS version 10.4.11.

Is there any way I can increase the memory allotment to the Nisus application? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I really like the program when it works but the constant crashing is discouraging me from ever using it again for a large project. If this is not resolved I will have to use Pages for future jobs.

No you cannot increase the memory allocated to NWP, with OS X you don't need to - it'll take as much RAM as it needs at the time like all OS X apps. First you need to find out what is causing the crashes, don't just assume it's insufficient memory. Have a look in Console utility under CrashReporter and you should find the crash logs for the NWP crashes. Unless you're a programmer they probably won't make much sense to you but if you email one of them to Nisus (File>Save a Copy As... in Console, then Help>Send Feedback in Nisus Writer Pro) they should be able to figure out what the problem is.

dshan is correct, how much memory is allocated to a particular program is all handled by OSX and should not be an issue.

After NWP crashes please relaunch it and use the menu Help > Send Feedback. It will automatically collect the logs dshan mentioned and send them to us. Unfortunately we never receive the feedback reports that Apple collects.

Would it help if you used ILCrashReporter?:
