The content of Nisus template files can't be found!?

Post by Þorvarður »

Hello everybody,

If you create a folder group with files saved as 'Document Template' in the Document Manager, you'll notice that the Document Manager can't find any content in these files. If they are saved in Rich Text Format, however, then the content is found.

Interestingly, the Finder can't find anything inside these files either!

If I save MS Word templates as .dot or .dotx, then there is no problem. I also placed a Mellel template inside a group in the Document Manager, and the Document Manager found the document content immediately.

So, as far as I can see, it seems only .dot files created with Nisus are affected.
Is this a bug? Or is perhaps something broken in my machine?

In Preferences > New File, my experience is that NWP treats the specified documents as templates regardless of whether they are DOT or RTF.

Therefore, if RTF files work but DOT files do not, I suggest simply using RTF or ZRTF for the Nisus New File.

You also might try using the donation-ware utility Onyx to rebuild the launch services database. It probably will not help, but it is harmless.

It seems you have completely misunderstood my post. I was not talking about the Nisus New File. I was talking about searching the *content* of .doc files created by Nisus.

I apologize, Þorvarður. I read your post quickly and carelessly! It sounds like a problem with Spotlight indexing, but you'll have to wait for Martin to help with that.
