NWE 3.1: Multiple windows, same document -- still no?

Post by TXLogic » 2008-11-10 18:17:51

So am I correct that it is still not possible in NWE 3.1 to have multiple windows open on the same document, so that one can view and edit several sections of a document at once? I hope I'm wrong, but it appears I'm not. I really cannot understand this. This is an essential feature in a serious word processor for many of us who write long documents. This was a common feature request during the 2.x release. How hard can it be?

You are correct, neither Express nor Pro support opening multiple windows of the same document. Sorry.

As a work around Pro users can use a small macro posted by Kino to duplicate the contents of the active document in another window. Express users can use this (slower) Perl macro:

Code: Select all

#Nisus Macro Block
#source front
#destination new
#Send as RTF
#End Nisus Macro Block

use utf8;
binmode(STDIN, ":utf8");
binmode(STDOUT, ":utf8");

while( $line = <STDIN> ) {
	print $line;
}

Bummer. This is a deal-breaker for me. I'll have to use Word 2008 until this is fixed.
