Using Shapes Extensively (?) Caused The Document Not to Open

Post by kivancmuslu » 2011-05-24 17:45:21

Hi all,

I was developing a document using the new shapes feature of Nisus Writer Pro 2. It started to respond poorly so I decided to close the document (after I saved it). The problem is that I can no longer open the file! I am attaching the file to this post. It previews and opens fine with text edit (of course without the shapes), however whenever I try opening the file with NWP, it immediately quits the program (NWP quits).

I haven't done much work yet (hopefully), however I would prefer saving my work so far. Also if somebody (maybe from Nisus) can explain me what I have messed up, so that I won't do it again.

Thanks in advance, best regards,

Kivanc,

if you encounter such problems, instead of uploading such files here, I think a better method is to use the "Send Feedback" feature (in the "Help" menu). That way it goes directly into Nisus "To do" queue :)

Hi,

I didn't know that. I have also sent a similar feedback with your suggestion. Thanks,

I can reproduce the crash.
I have sent the crash log to Feedback.

Thanks Hamid,

I also tried to send something like crash log, however was not sure that I really succeed on sending the correct crash log. This way at least they will receive one correct copy :-)

I hope it can be resolved, maybe this way I can also get rid of keynote too :-)

Thanks for the files and crash logs guys. It turns out this is a bug triggered by using list items inside multiple floating text boxes. We're looking into it, thanks!

Glad that it is pin-pointed and glad that I could help.

I knew that I shouldn't have used that much fancy features :-)

Thanks martin!
