Palette Bug

I inadvertently dropped a palette so that the top was placed under my Menu Bar, so now I can't close the palette. I decided to try to duplicate this bug and was successful. Is there some way, short of deleting preferences, to close palettes in which you cannot see the top?

If you are brave of heart, you could open your preferences file (in your Library/Preferences folder, named com.nisus.NisusWriter.plist) in TextEdit (with Nisus Writer Express NOT running) and look for the string "<key>toolbox.floatingPalette.defs</key>" You will see something that looks like this:

Code:
<key>toolbox.floatingPalette.defs</key>
        <array>
                <array>
                        <dict>
                                <key>floating palette origin</key>
                                <string>{776, 367}</string>
                                <key>name</key>
                                <string>com.nisus.text.LanguagePalette</string>
                                <key>open</key>
                                <true/>
                                <key>size</key>
                                <string>{171, 169}</string>
                        </dict>
                </array>
        </array>


Delete all of it.

The only other way to fix it is to delete all your prefs. This annoying bug is fixed in 2.0. We also provide a menu to close palettes.

Cheers,
