Multipart selection

Post by writerhoward » 2013-02-09 08:42:51

I've followed the NWP manual's direction for doing a multipart selection; however, it's not working. I selected one sentence, then, while pressing A, I tried to select a different, noncontiguous sentence, but as soon as I did that the first selection was deselected. What else do I need to do to make a multipart selection?

I'm using NWP 2.0.4.

Howard -

how about "Apple" instead of "A" - the one next to "Space"…

On my keyboard, the Command key is next to the spacebar; however, using the Command key solved the problem. Thank you.

Howard

P.S. The NWP manual needs correction as it states "Press A."

writerhoward,

I'm sorry you experience difficulties with Nisus Writer Pro.

From what you describe, it seems that either there is an error in the User's Guide, or the special font that we use to display the COMMAND key did not work in the PDF (or at least your copy of it). Please let me know on what page of the User's Guide you found the faulty instruction so I can check and, if need be, correct the document.

Martin,

It's on page 37. See #2 in the image below.

Howard,

Thank you. I see what happened. That "A" lost the special font that should have been applied to it. I'll fix it and we'll post a corrected version shortly.

That should be "Press [COMMAND] as you select each additional…"
