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!

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