Thanks to Nisus for the update.
The preferences panels moving to a submenu is a welcome improvement. Thanks.

Others that use macros to manipulate glossaries should know that glossaries have moved to the Nisus Documents folder inside the Documents folder, which will likely require tweaking a few macros. Macros accessing the preferences panes will also need tweaking.

The upside is that support files are now in a more readily accessible location.

I'm glad these improvements are helpful for you!

And yes, support files (eg: Macros, Templates, and Glossaries) are now by default stored in the user's Document Manager folder. This location can be changed in Nisus Writer Pro's "Doc Manager" preferences pane. If the Document Manager folder has not yet been chosen, NWP will default to a fallback folderĀ (eg: application support folder inside the sandbox) for support files, but this is less desirable.

Just to be clear, the "user's Document Manager folder" is the Nisus Documents folder inside the Documents folder, right?

I assume so because I simply clicked the default select (or whatever the label was) button for selecting the folder during installation. Honestly didn't pay much attention to where that folder was.

Thanks.

By default yes, the folder is set to:

~/Documents/Nisus Documents

But that's customizable by the user. If you're writing a macro to access that location, I would use something like:
Code:
$path = User Property "document manager folder path"

[code]$path = User Property "document manager folder path"[/code]

Very useful. Thank you.
