Re: Drag and drop gone

the bug is back again, despite trying: - quitting NW - logging out - restarting - plain text file / rtf file both versions in draft view and page view. However, I've just discovered the same problem in the email app Spark sad face. :( ***** I have determined that the workaround is to disable the act...

Re: Drag and drop gone

OK: I turned off the "share menu items" for "actions" restarted, and the problem went away. Then turned the "share menu items" for "actions" again, and it's back.

Re: Drag and drop gone

that's the right menu. However, a restart made it go away. I am now going to see how long before it happens again.

Re: Drag and drop gone

Amazingly, now after two years, I see the drag + drop problem showing up in another way, now with Catalina, same machine. Again, drag + Drop works fine in all other applications, but in Nisus, I get a 3d gray button with a white downward pointing carat-arrow, which provides sharing menu options. The...

Form Paragraph Macro

I use the "form paragraph" macro from NWP 2.1 pretty much every day, as I clean up text. Just bought NWP 3.0.4, and see the macro is not there. Writing macros is something that I have not been able to master. In the old days, I used to used to use "save to macro," I think, but once macro writing got...

Re: Drag and drop gone

I ran etrecheck (www.etrecheck.com), found some old daemons to get rid of, reboot, and we seem to be ok now.

Re: Drag and drop gone

What I have to do is to click on the text and wait till the "I" shaped insertion point changes to the black arrow, then it works. I can't figure out what's slowing this down! Ugh!

Re: Drag and drop gone

My experience is that I need to wait three seconds for Drag & Drop to work in NWP. Works instantaneously in other apps

Responsiveness

I wonder abt others' experience w/ NWX, & general responsiveness. One of the best (and there were millions) things abt Nisus Writer was its leaness. The pgm is still small, compared to other choices, but I find that using NWX on my 500mhz ibook w/ 320mb ram is so painfully slow that I cannot use it....

It appears that all docs are saved, and then in the autosave library. This means that you need to do a 'save as' to save where you want them. This is if you have the second box ['Keep new documents in the autososave library without asking me'] checked in autosave. I don't know why anyone wd want to ...
