Here's a video interview of the famous author with Conan O'Brien. And while he's right that it's great to have a word processor that puts the user in charge, we at Nisus think this can be accomplished while also giving the user access to modern features!

Over the years, Nisus' fullscreen mode (the one you can access from the Draft view) has greatly improved, and is now not far from Scrivener's. I admit working there most of the time, since it proves to be a great distraction-free environment. Shortcuts to show/hide the Navigator is a joy with long texts.

What I miss is, probably, a) an alternative font when switching to fullscreen mode, b) typewriter mode (with the cursor staying in the middle of the screen), and c) a set of color presets, to quickly choose the right combination for day (green text) and night (amber text).

But, being as easy as it is changing colors in Nisus, I guess that request (c) would be more unnecessary bloat than need. Request (a) might be something that I still would like to see implemented (even if the automatic change of font size is already a great help - still, Serif fonts in page view, and Egyptian fonts in fullscreen mode would be nice for added readibility). And request (b) seems something I would really like.
