Newbie Question

Post by JNRand » 2008-09-15 06:58:47

I'm a novelist looking for new word processing software. Downloaded NWE, and it passed my first test with flying colors: searching for hard paragraph marks and replacing them with another special character. Totally easy and intuitive. Yay!

My second test is that I can't write in 'page layout' mode. So I was very happy to find 'Draft View.'

Except I want to turn on two features in 'Draft View'.

One, continually updated page numbering, preferably in the bottom bar--so if I click in the middle of a manuscript, I'll immediately know what page I'm on.

And two, some indication of soft page breaks, a dotted line a la Word or something similar. (Like the line that appears when I insert a -hard- page break.)

I can't figure how to do either of these, and can't use software without. So I thought I'd ask for help before spending too much time mucking about!

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm afraid none of these are available in Nisus Writer Express (or Nisus Writer Pro, for that matter).

Sorry!
