These are the release notes for an older version of Nisus Writer Pro.
For current information, please see our version and release notes archive.


New Features in Version 2.0

  • Track Changes.
  • Drawing Tools (shapes, lines, floating text boxes, etc).
  • Watermarks.
  • Vertical ruler.
  • Paragraph-level borders and shading (which may be enforced via paragraph styles).
  • Saving a PDF creates clickable links for cross-references, pages numbers in generated TOCs/indexes, and hyperlinks. PDFs also include a proper TOC (eg: shows in the drawer in Preview.app).

Highlighted Changes in Version 2.0

  • Added: comments: comment (and tracked change) positions are smartly adjusted in the side pane to help ease when many comments are visible. Likewise, comments are smartly faded in/out depending on the selection and document scroll location.
  • Added: basic trackpad gestures (pinch to zoom, three finger vertical swipe to scroll page up/down in Page View).
  • Added: preference to control color of page in Page View (takes effect only while on screen; print/PDF is always white).
  • Added: preference to control text color in Draft View.
  • Opt: automatic content (page numbers, cross-refs, etc) is updated on demand and before printing, instead of live during editing. Stale automatic content is displayed in the document with a rectangular (red) border.
  • Added: comments: saving a PDF can include comments (as PDF annotation icons).
  • Added: zoom option to "Show Text Width", which excludes the margins in Page view.
  • Added: links: added menus Insert > Hyperlink > Add Link to File and Insert > Hyperlink > Add Link to Bookmark (the latter applies a hyperlink that targets some intra-document content).

  • Opt: comments: documents with comments could respond very sluggishly in Draft View.
  • Changed: comments: the move next/previous arrow buttons are always visible in comments, and let the user move between comments adjacent in the document, not just in the comment history.
  • Added: comments: contextual menu should have "Go To Comment" or "Go To Marked Text" commands if comment (or its marked text) is selected.
  • Changed: comments: if the last line of the comment can also fit the add/remove buttons, they are inlined to conserve vertical space.
  • Changed: comments: the move next/previous buttons for comment histories are now shown in the title bar. This conserves space and is less awkward when flipping through comments of different vertical heights.
  • Changed: comments: moving to the next/previous comment should flash the selection.
  • Fixed: comments: the mouse's scroll wheel did not always work in the annotation pane.
  • Changed: comments: pane state (visibility and annotation title bar info) is now shared across document views.

  • Fixed: comments: comments and tracked changes near the bottom of the document must not be outside the display/visible region.
  • Fixed: comments: comments whose author names contain certain Unicode characters (and are saved by applications making use of the UPR Unicode destination) could be improperly attributed to the wrong author.
  • Fixed: comments: newly added comments might not show in the side pane immediately (occurs when comment added interior to existing marker smart object).

  • Changed: comments: there should not be a tiny space between the comment move next/previous buttons that collapses the comment.
  • Fixed: comments: side pane heading/titlebar height should be the same as the TOC Navigator pane heading/titlebar height.

Changes: Files / Compatibility in Version 2.0

  • Added: file formats: preferences to control which importer (OpenOffice.org or OSX) is used to import special document types (docx, odt, binary doc).
  • Added: file formats: preferences to control whether importer is loaded in background after Nisus Writer launches.
  • Fixed: file formats: better interchange with Word for paragraphs with tab stops (Word does not use first/hanging indent locations as tab stops, so we add explicit hard tab stops now).
  • Fixed: file formats: hyperlinks saved by Nisus Writer should appear as blue/underlined in Word.
  • Fixed: file formats: note styles configured to place notes at the end of a section do not import into Word properly (section notes tend to be placed at end of document)
  • Fixed: file formats: list items can fail to show when opened in Word (due to not applying paragraph attributes to the "\cell" terminal).
  • Fixed: file formats: the baseline of equations (inserted as images) do not always transfer to/from Word properly.
  • Fixed: file formats: floating content anchored to paragraphs with list items/bullets do not always open properly in Word (sometimes Word might strip the image or complain about "out of memory").
  • Fixed: file formats: files using special symbol fonts (eg: Wingdings, Webdings) can import improperly (with symbol changes) from other applications.
  • Changed: file formats: if the OpenOffice.org importer incorrectly emits too many close braces (which would truncate a file's content), Nisus Writer should continue parsing the file.
  • Added: file formats: if the primary importer fails, we ask the user if they want to try a backup importer.
  • Fixed: file formats: Arabic language can be incorrectly applied to list bullets when importing Word documents.
  • Changed: file formats: we should cull unused styles with silly names created automatically during import process.
  • Fixed: file formats: added limited support for reading old list style "pn" controls (Word 95 and earlier).
  • Changed: file formats: table column widths imported from ".doc" files could be off by fractions of a point, causing Nisus Writer to undesirably add many empty super-thin columns that are a nuisance.
  • Fixed: file formats: comment and tracked changes visibility should be saved to file in a way that Word understands and obeys.
  • Fixed: file formats: floating content around/inside tables from converted documents can cause errors or go missing.
  • Fixed: file formats: headers/footers could be imported improperly (Word ignores section reset controls it emits in headers and so should we).
  • Fixed: file formats: importing files with damaged/malformed stylesheet should not cause crashes.
  • Fixed: file formats: importing some files with certain characters in their filenames, on some systems with particular text encoding/language settings, can cause the importer to fail. We now create a temporary hard link with a file name that OpenOffice.org importer doesn't choke on before importing.
  • Fixed: file formats: latex files should not trigger the OpenOffice.org importer, which doesn't support them.
  • Fixed: file formats: list numbering in the document may not import into Word properly (the list override table must be sorted by index).
  • Fixed: file formats: problems with cross-ref target (hidden bookmark) being lost if Word closed the bookmark within the field result destination.
  • Fixed: file formats: some characters can be imported incorrectly from Word RTF documents.
  • Changed: file formats: zero length bookmarks (as saved by other applications) are not discarded on import, but instead are applied as a zero-length space.
  • Fixed: file formats: when importing non-Nisus files, Nisus Writer should check to see if a table lies inside the margin area (where table drawing cannot occur). If so, Nisus Writer should reset the table offset so it appears inside the document margins.

Changes: Styles in Version 2.0

  • Added: styles: the style menus/tags should have "Select Next in Same Style" commands.
  • Added: styles: separate menu commands to add either a Character or Paragraph style based on the selection.
  • Changed: styles: adding a new paragraph style should by default base it upon Normal.
  • Changed: styles: character styles should toggle on/off like bold/italic font attributes.
  • Fixed: styles: the style commands "Select All" and "Select Range" should allow selecting text with no style applied.
  • Fixed: styles: when deleting a style from the stylesheet, Nisus Writer can sometimes fail to warn the user that the style is in use (by another style in the stylesheet).
  • Fixed: styles: paste/import of styles should not duplicate all underlying styles if they have existing equivalents in the destination document.
  • Fixed: styles: adding a style to a style library collection, whose associated document is already open for editing in Nisus Writer but otherwise unchanged, should not mark the document dirty. eg: the addition should be automatically saved.
  • Fixed: styles: bold/italic font faces applied to styles are separated into discrete font face and option (bold/italic) attributes when read from file.
  • Fixed: styles: changing a style's name should update the menu shortcut field to show the new shortcut (if any).
  • Fixed: styles: if copy-paste includes a section break, the user's choice in the style conflict dialog could be silently ignored (resulting in incorrect style adoption for the pasted content).
  • Fixed: styles: some ruler formatting operations (eg: Paste Ruler) in the stylesheet view can incorrectly trigger the ruler to not show any markers.
  • Fixed: styles: user should not see the style conflict sheet if they accidentally drag-drop a style within the stylesheet view (drag-drop styles to copy only works between docs).
  • Fixed: styles: using the increase/decrease indent menus didn't always work in the stylesheet.
  • Fixed: styles: when in the stylesheet view, choosing a list style menu should apply that list style, if a paragraph style is selected.
  • Changed: styles: when sorting styles by name, leading whitespace should be ignored.
  • Fixed: styles: bold/italic attributes as applied to styles should not introduce a superfluous font specifier attribute that inheritance already provides.
  • Fixed: styles: copy-paste of content with list style could incorrectly introduce font override in list level, producing the style conflict sheet, or mismatches in attribute sensitive searches.

Changes: Spelling and QuickFix in Version 2.0

  • Added: spelling: spelling panel has "Correct All" button.
  • Fixed: spelling: soft hyphens should be ignored during spell checking.
  • Fixed: QuickFix: typos/corrections that begin with punctuation marks should expand even if they are not preceded by a word delimiter, eg: the text "more..." should QuickFix the ellipsis character.
  • Added: spelling: contextual menu for misspelled words now includes a "Correct Spelling & Add QuickFix" submenu.
  • Fixed: QuickFix: in some cases typo corrections could fail to trigger (if a longer typo failed to match and obscured a shorter typo match).

  • Changed: spelling: contextual menu should read "Forget Spelling" not "Unlearn Spelling".
  • Changed: spelling: moved spelling suggestions on contextual menu to submenu.
  • Fixed: spelling: if no spelling suggestions are found, the contextual menu should not duplicate the spell action menu items.
  • Fixed: spelling: if you "Forget Spelling" from the contextual menu, the document spelling must be rechecked.
  • Fixed: spelling: posing NSSpellChecker proxy wasn't capturing invocations as necessary to ensure thread safety.
  • Fixed: QuickFix: different smart quote styles for custom languages are not properly respected.
  • Fixed: spelling: suggestions in the contextual menu should not take display-level case changes into account.

  • Opt: index: faster when indexing from Word List (concordance file).
  • Opt: index: faster when reading file with lots of applied indexing.
  • Opt: index: rebuilding an existing text index is much faster.
  • Added: index: printing (or save as PDF) should update page numbers in index.
  • Fixed: index: quoted material (and some text with symbol prefixes) should be sorted with respect to the first actual number/letter in the topic.
  • Fixed: index: if "index as" used Unicode text that was emitted using a different character set than the file's default font, could result in garbled "index as" text upon reloading the file.
  • Fixed: index: bold/italic font could bleed into text indexing topic upon reopening file and rebuilding the index.
  • Fixed: index: deleting an index can incorrectly recreate a new default named index upon reopening the file.
  • Fixed: index: deleting an index style from a document could trigger asserts/exceptions.
  • Fixed: index: overriding automatic indexing applied via a style with an explicit "index as" should not throw exceptions.
  • Fixed: index: remarking some text with the exact same "index as" must not clear all indexing from the text.
  • Fixed: index: RTF reader warnings due to indexing attribute bleeding into alt text ("txe" control).
  • Fixed: index: spurious RTF reader warning if empty Index field code found in file.

Changes: Images in Version 2.0

  • Can link inserted images to a file on disk. These linked images update automatically if the original file changes on disk. Double-clicking a linked image opens the original file in an external application.
  • Added: images: user can control how much padding an image has around it.
  • Opt: images: files with many large graphics open quicker and require less RAM (Nisus Writer now delays image data interpretation until the image needs to be drawn).
  • Opt: images: our "Nisus Compressed RTF" file format only emits image data once when the same image is used multiple times in different parts of the document.
  • Added: images: users can choose if inline images draw over adjacent lines of text.
  • Changed: images: if image could not be decoded (or is otherwise missing) we display a placeholder of the correct size on screen.
  • Fixed: images: pasting a MathType image into a table cell when running on 10.6 should not yield a TIFF which lacks the internal equation data.
  • Fixed: images: if a user resizes a floating image, the resize should always keep the catty-corner point fixed.
  • Fixed: images: inserting multiple images at once incorrectly inserts them in reverse order.
  • Fixed: images: copy-paste of content with images could fail to paste the images if the image file name contained certain special characters (like an Em Dash) and Nisus Writer chose to use RTFD.
  • Fixed: images: copy-paste of content with multiple similarly named images could result in an image going missing.
  • Changed: images: clicking an inline image should not scroll the document unless most of the image is out of view.
  • Fixed: images: drag sources (eg: iMediaBrower) that place local image URLs on the pasteboard should be treated just like images, eg: the graphic itself should be inserted, not a hyperlink.
  • Fixed: images: dragging/pasting images into a document should applying the ambient attributes to that image.
  • Fixed: images: removal of all content that includes a floating image could trigger exceptions.
  • Fixed: images: some inserted TIFF images can fail to produce data when saving to file, resulting in loss of the image.
  • Fixed: images: user should be able to select multiple inline images at once using the Command key.
  • Fixed: images: when reading files with floating graphics in table cells (unsupported in Nisus Writer), we should convert the image to be inline instead of discarding it.

Changes: Lists in Version 2.0

  • Changed: lists: using the "Continue Numbering From Previous" command should mark the paragraph so it always continues numbering, instead of only assigning the paragraph a fixed number that happens to be next in the sequence.
  • Added: lists: contextual menu should have commands for restarting/continuing list numbering, and increasing/decreasing list level.
  • Added: lists: Lists toolbar button should have Increase/Decrease list level menus.
  • Fixed: lists: if more than a single list paragraph is selected, and the user adjusts a list style indent via the palette, the indent may change too much or become an invalid/problematic value.
  • Fixed: lists: drag-drop of a list paragraph with both the prior newline and following newline selected does not produce good results (loss of list bullet).
  • Fixed: lists: if a paragraph has a starting number override, the list numbering menu could show the command "Continue Numbering" instead of "Restart Numbering".
  • Changed: lists: if the user sets a "text indent" (hanging indent) that tries to place the paragraph text inside the area used by the list item, the paragraph text is now placed just adjacent to the list item, instead of incremented by the automatic tab distance. This should make it clearer to users when they have a poorly/incorrectly configured list style.
  • Fixed: lists: "continue numbering" did not continue properly when certain configurations of content were in between.
  • Fixed: lists: adjusting the indent on a list level in the stylesheet should not clear character attributes for that list item.
  • Fixed: lists: asterisk characters could incorrectly be shown in tiered list items if a list style used a fixed/bullet for lower list style levels.
  • Fixed: lists: can't override list starting number that is enforced through a paragraph style and happens to match the starting number for the list style.
  • Fixed: lists: copy-paste of bulleted list items in a document can incorrectly trigger the style conflict dialog.
  • Fixed: lists: adjusting Heading level in the TOC Navigator should mark list items dirty.
  • Fixed: lists: a variety of problems with list level overrides when list styles are enforced by way of paragraph styles.
  • Fixed: lists: custom list bullet attribute applied to Paragraph Style definitions should be taken into account for the style preview.
  • Fixed: lists: custom list bullet attribute should not propagate to derived Paragraph Styles unless the listing level is constant (put another way: changing the list level should reset the list bullet).
  • Fixed: lists: custom list bullets as part of style definitions could be incorrectly lost on file reopen in certain situations.
  • Fixed: lists: invalid ranges could be generated when updating list bullet existence.
  • Fixed: lists: typing attributes can incorrectly bleed into existing paragraphs if a new list item needs to be created.
  • Fixed: lists: Lists palette can show the wrong list item type (eg: bullet, numbered, etc) for paragraph styles that have a custom list bullet set.
  • Fixed: lists: redefining a paragraph style from the selection should never remove the list style from the paragraph style.
  • Fixed: lists: removing All Attributes Except styles should update list bullets in the selected range, in case a list level override was removed.
  • Fixed: lists: sometimes changes to list levels in the stylesheet do not update ancillary palettes as necessary.
  • Opt: lists: updating a list item should not scan for bookmarks in the paragraph when opening a file.
  • Fixed: lists: if a list style is enforced via a paragraph style, any custom attributes on the list level (eg: font), could errantly be wiped out if the user also enforces a custom list bullet via the paragraph style.
  • Fixed: lists: if a list style was enforced by way of a paragraph style, and then the list level in text was changed, the list items in the document might not be aligned correctly.
  • Fixed: lists: copy-pasting content that ended with a paragraph that was empty except for a list bullet would paste without the final list bullet.
  • Fixed: lists: changing a paragraph's list level to restore it to that of the list level enforced by the applied paragraph style should not use the list style's indents, but instead use the indents of the paragraph style.
  • Fixed: lists: changing the list level format (eg: from bullet to numbered items) should not reset character formatting for that list level.
  • Changed: lists: if a paragraph style includes "restart list number" as part of its definition, all paragraphs in the document marked in that paragraph style must show that same restart number (this also fixes some restart/continue numbering updating bugs when this scenario is encountered).
  • Changed: lists: if the user clicks in between a list item and that paragraph's text, newly inserted text should use the formatting applied to the paragraph's content, not the list item.
  • Changed: lists: made it easier to place insertion point in front of list item.

Changes: Table of Contents (TOC) in Version 2.0

  • Added: toc: menus to select the next/previous TOC paragraph.
  • Fixed: toc: text marked for TOC inclusion, followed by a note references, could incorrectly duplicate itself upon reopening the file.
  • Fixed: toc: user should be able to remove part of a paragraph from the TOC, even if the TOC level comes from the style definition.
  • Changed: toc: default TOC paragraph styles are based on one another (eg: "TOC 3" inherits from "TOC 2") instead of Normal.

  • Fixed: toc: note references in TOC paragraph should not be shown in the TOC.
  • Fixed: toc: paragraphs following an empty paragraph can fail to be shown in the Navigator pane on initially being typed (no TOC handle assigned).
  • Fixed: toc: problem with the same TOC handle being assigned twice, leading to RTF reader warnings.
  • Fixed: toc: potential exception when configuring TOC styles.
  • Fixed: toc: if a paragraph is included in a TOC, and includes a cross-reference, can produce warnings on saving/reopening the file.
  • Changed: toc: TOC entries in the Navigator pane should not be so sensitive to start a drag-drop.

Changes: Tables in Version 2.0

  • Added: tables: menus to sort selected table rows by the selected column.
  • Changed: tables: copy-paste of discontinuous table selections should insert tabs/newlines between adjacent cell content and preserve the order of the text.
  • Added: tables: freshly inserted tables should have a "Table Header" paragraph style applied to the relevant cells.
  • Fixed: tables: if a table is enclosed in selection (but no cells have been directly selected), the table cells should still be affected by formatting changes.
  • Fixed: tables: merged cells should not lose certain kinds of special content (eg: bookmarks) when a file is reopened.

  • Fixed: tables: should not use uninitialized selection anchor point, which can produce out-of-range table selections.
  • Fixed: tables: table cell shading can improperly bleed out from prior rows.
  • Fixed: tables: table row minimum height should not be enforced for rows interior/internal to a span that user cannot adjust.
  • Opt: tables: some big inefficiencies when manipulating lots of table cells all at once.

  • Opt: find: searching backwards (Find Previous) with the Whole Word option turned on can be incredibly slow.
  • Changed: find: changed name of PowerFind bubbles "LookAhead" and "LookBehind" to "FollowedBy" and "PrecededBy".
  • Changed: find: removed "Use Selection for Find" menu, added "Copy to Find" and "Copy to Replace" to the Edit > Find menu.
  • Fixed: find: if results include content in comments, Find All can match the same result more than once. This can trigger crashes if Replace All is used. Also, Find Next can iterate content erratically.
  • Fixed: find: construct to disable especials "\Q...\E" does not always work properly.
  • Fixed: find: attribute sensitive matching can fail if matchable attributes are not uniform over the matched text of an attributed wild card subpattern.

Changes: Macros in Version 2.0

  • Added: macros: new commands. See the menu Help > Macro Language Reference.
  • Opt: macros: a variety of speed and memory (RAM) optimizations for running macros.
  • Changed: macros: while a macro is running, the mouse pointer turns to a macro icon.
  • Added: macros: quitting Nisus Writer while a macro is still running should warn the user.
  • Fixed: macros: the order of the "tables" command should be sorted by location in the text object.

  • Fixed: macros: using the "Save", "Save As", etc commands without a file path should return false if the user cancels.
  • Fixed: macros: canceling a macro with a Choose Files prompt should not leave the prompt shown.

  • Fixed: macros: the user registry only discarded/downconverted values at application quit time, which could lead to subtle macro bugs, eg: error would not manifest unless macro author restarts NWP. Now the user registry converts stored values immediately, so user can see same effect as if Nisus Writer was relaunched.
  • Fixed: macros: using the command "Export As" with a ".doc" file extension should save the file as a binary Word file.

Changes: miscellaneous in Version 2.0

  • Fixed: using the menu File > Revert can cause all sorts of troubles. Rather than using Cocoa's strategy of gutting the existing document and replacing the content, we now override the reversion command entirely, so that the current window is discarded wholesale and the document is reopened completely fresh.
  • Fixed: multi-key keyboard shortcuts should not fail if the current keyboard layout does not produce English characters (eg: Hebrew). Also, Command + "8" should be recognized as distinct from Command + Shift + "8" (eg: Command + "*").
  • Added: menu Save Copy As.
  • Added: links: contextual menu "Reveal Linked File in Finder" for hyperlinks to files.
  • Opt: smaller RTF files (due to cleaner RTF attribute groupings).
  • Opt: a variety of text system optimizations.
  • Opt: Help menu was slow to show if there were many files in the Document Manager.
  • Added: application asks user if they want to move/copy the app to Applications folder as needed (Leopard only).
  • Added: invisible mark for soft hyphen character on Leopard.
  • Added: menu Edit > Copy > Copy Document File Path
  • Added: menu Edit > Sort Paragraphs > Reverse and table row sorting menus for Reverse and Randomize.
  • Added: menus to adjust paragraph indents, fixed line spacing.
  • Added: open file text encoding option should include "Arabic (Windows)" encoding.
  • Added: preference to control whether or not the insertion point (caret) blinks on/off.
  • Added: Recent Fonts menu should have command to clear it.
  • Fixed: more accurate page guides.
  • Fixed: toggling whether headers/footers are hidden should not alter the margin distances.
  • Added: some synchronicity between language shown between preference panes and language of selection in document.
  • Added: user can choose how often various kinds of automatic content are updated (see menu Tools > Automatic Content > Automatic Content Update Preferences")
  • Changed: adjusting the kerning with a zero-length selection (insertion point) should adjust the spacing between the adjacent characters.
  • Changed: automatic backups should be saved using our Compressed RTF file format, regardless of the document's original format.
  • Changed: better invisible mark for page/section breaks.
  • Changed: changed invisible mark for Zero Width Non Joiner character to be a broken vertical bar.
  • Changed: clicking a file link in NWP should open the destination file in the desired application, instead of just showing it in the Finder.
  • Changed: copying a multipart selection should include newlines between copied content.
  • Changed: double-clicking to select a word should include any superscripted material inside the word (eg: superscripted characters surrounded by normal non-superscripted characters).
  • Changed: drag-drop of full paragraphs (selected by quadruple-clicking) should smart insert/delete newlines.
  • Changed: file links in NWP should allow the use of the tilde to mean the user's home directory, eg: "file://~/Desktop/target.rtf".
  • Changed: flashing the selection made more distinctive.
  • Changed: if user chooses to send us a file, they should not be prompted about the transmission unless there was a problem.
  • Changed: if user is running 10.6, we use more user-friendly standard sorting method (eg: will compare numbers inside string by logical value).
  • Changed: if user is running Pro, for settings/defaults not otherwise changed in Pro, we should fallback on preferences established in Express.
  • Changed: if user tries to open file with no type and no extension, and contents of file are RTF, use RTF reader to open file.
  • Changed: increase/decrease ruler indent/level menus should shift by an amount that is appropriate for the ruler's unit type, not just a quarter of an inch.
  • Changed: inserting a cross-reference should place the caret after the insertion, instead of selecting it.
  • Changed: made idle tasks (like generating WYSIWYG font previews) less aggressive, giving better response times after just launching application.
  • Changed: menus should consistently toggle between "Show/Hide Whatever" or just show a checkmark.
  • Changed: more lenient with detecting DOCX files misnamed as ".doc".
  • Changed: move the "Cross-References" text appearance default to the "automatic text" category, instead of "Marked Text".
  • Changed: moved the TOC and Indexing commands to the Tools menu.
  • Changed: new file templates (the Nisus New File) only use the system paper size until the first time the file is edited. After that, new documents use the paper size as saved in the file.
  • Changed: open dialog options (eg: "Open as New File") should be sticky and should not change when selected file changes.
  • Changed: product registration automatically fills out license keys and user name in web form.
  • Changed: RTF emitter shouldn't use superfluous "\u" for some Latin variant text encodings.
  • Changed: sound popup buttons should also list sounds in the user's home folder.
  • Changed: the "Append Copy" and "Append Cut" menus should add delimiters to the clipboard as guided by the current selection granularity.
  • Changed: the "Remove Attributes and/Except Styles" menus should leave language intact when used on a text selection.
  • Changed: the background color attribute should only draw in areas actually occupied by characters (eg: exclude indents, line wraps, etc).
  • Changed: we use Apple's path control where appropriate, on OSX versions where the control is available.
  • Changed: when adding a hyperlink, if neither the pasteboard or selected text look like URLs, the default link is "http://".
  • Changed: when opening non-nisus document, settings that are nisus-specific (like show page guides) should take the values found in the Nisus New File.
  • Fixed: a paragraph should never be moved to the next page because its "after spacing" won't fit.
  • Fixed: a variety of interactive sheets (eg: the print dialog) should not disrupt the Full Screen editing mode.
  • Fixed: active edit in the QuickFix window is not always committed if user closes the preference pane (or switches back to document view).
  • Fixed: adding a hyperlink to text shouldn't make the attributes uniform across the whole selection (ie: possible attribute loss).
  • Fixed: adding a link to some text can incorrectly bleed in formatting overrides.
  • Fixed: adjusting the paragraph layout options (eg: "keep with next ") did not always redo layout to take the new settings into account.

  • Fixed: case where column prematurely forced content to the next page after changing the number of columns.
  • Fixed: character case conversion commands (eg: "Convert to lowercase") should leave integral smart content intact (eg: footnote references).
  • Fixed: choosing to cancel a save because the plain text file format would discard formatting does not produce a superfluous 2nd alert telling the user that the save was aborted.
  • Fixed: compressed RTF files with a ".rtf" extension should be read in by Nisus Writer, instead of displaying gzip gibberish.
  • Fixed: copy-paste of ruler should include properties that happen to be the default (eg: zero head indent, no tab stops, etc).
  • Fixed: copying a selected file in the Finder, and then pasting it into NWP should produce a text link, not a giant icon.
  • Fixed: could crash when loading certain QuickFix typo lists of a large size.
  • Fixed: could crash when showing the services menu (or showing the contextual menu for a word) on OSX 10.6.
  • Fixed: custom arrow key shortcuts are should not triggered unless Command key is also down.
  • Fixed: damaged cross-references should not be propagated after resaving a file (should warn once and then discard).
  • Fixed: deleting a newline between paragraphs with different paragraph styles can cause the wrong typing attributes to be calculated.
  • Fixed: deleting text near a page boundary can fail to properly redraw the end of the previous page if the line fragment moved pages.
  • Fixed: document properties (eg: author, etc) should be properly set in saved PDF files.

  • Fixed: if a user cancels the opening of a document, the standard "cannot open document" warning should not be shown.
  • Fixed: if authorization is required to save a "computer" type license key, the information can fail to be saved to disk, causing NWP to lose the license information upon restart.
  • Fixed: if paragraph spacing is not specified in RTF style definition, should be interpreted as "zero" that overrides the parent style. Same with bold/italic font.
  • Fixed: if user types Arabic 0-9 into numbering fields with certain numbering formatters applied (eg: Kanji), should translate as necessary.
  • Fixed: if user's chosen file name has a period in it, the save panel can incorrectly truncate that period and everything afterwards.

  • Fixed: page gutter shading should alternate left/right when facing pages is enabled.
  • Fixed: paragraph spacing is slightly off when using a same-page section break.
  • Fixed: paragraphs numbers can improperly duplicate on screen in the gutter with certain paragraph configurations.

  • Fixed: possible crash when manipulating tabs on ruler.
  • Fixed: possible errors when counting words in a document with combining marks.
  • Fixed: possible hang when editing comments attached to footnotes (triggered when the footnote reference itself is also encompassed in a comment).
  • Fixed: printing a Nisus Writer file from the Finder should not yield infinite printouts.
  • Fixed: printing and saving as a PDF could use improper paper orientation in a document with sections having mixed paper orientations, depending on where the selection rests.

  • Fixed: section change notifications should not be nested- changes triggered in response to another should be queued up.
  • Fixed: section changes should not be triggered while in the parent's "replaceCharactersInRange" method, otherwise can cause layout invalidation on the parent while in unstable state.
  • Fixed: services on Snow Leopard need access to spellchecker proxy on main thread to validate text-based service rules.
  • Fixed: services should not appear in Toolbar item menus.

  • Fixed: users should be able to override the default appearance of hyperlinks (eg: remove or override the blue/underline).
  • Fixed: users with smooth-scrolling enabled would sometimes be scrolled to the weird locations in the file.
  • Fixed: using the color panel's "list" mode can errantly change the text color when other color modalities should be active (eg: change table cell background).

  • Fixed: when exporting a file, Nisus Writer should use the last chosen export file type.
  • Fixed: wrong header/footer type can show in section using facing-pages that inherits headers/footers from a prior section.
  • Opt: if user has "keep with next " option turned on for a very large chain of paragraph (eg: a whole document), Nisus Writer can be super slow to respond to keystrokes.
  • Fixed: by default the autosave should be set to save to "temporary backups" every 10 minutes.

  • Fixed: ruler: quickly adjusting ruler markers (eg: click-drag-release in one swoop) should not steal focus from the document area.
  • Fixed: ruler: removing all tab stops defined by the style (eg: set tab stops override to zero tabs) will incorrectly reintroduce the stops upon reopening the file.
