Re: Changing default margins

If you open the Nisus New File template file for editing just save your changes and close the template document window. Any time you create a new document the template is loaded/duplicated from the existing template file on disk.

How do I reset Nisus Writer's sandbox container?

In some situations you may want to reset Nisus Writer's sandbox container. This is sometimes necessary to fix odd problems related to file permission errors. The system (macOS) will sometimes show an alert that claims you do not have permission to save a file you created or opened. The system alert ...

Re: Selecting all tables

It's true that those methods will produce slightly different kinds of selections. Using the Formatting Examiner in this way will select all tables in their enclosing context (eg: the main document text), while the macro will select all table cells directly. The first method won't allow you to manipu...

Re: Really really strange behavior editing PowerFind Pro string

I'm glad you've excised the bug, though it's a pity we couldn't track this issue down. Thanks all the same for your efforts!

If anyone does hit upon a way to reliably trigger this problem, please let us know so we can continue to investigate.

a macro to list all widows and orphans in a document

A user recently wrote to us privately, asking for a way to see a list of all widows and orphans in a document. Nisus Writer has built-in support for preventing widows and orphans, but this user preferred to manually edit their text to fix such lines. Just in case anyone else might find it useful, he...

Re: Really really strange behavior editing PowerFind Pro string

Thanks for posting instructions on how to reproduce the bug alanterra, but just like Philip I could not trigger the problem. It sounds like you can reliably trigger the bug any time. Is that true even if you quit and relaunch Nisus Writer? If so we might be able to work with you privately, using a d...

Re: Really really strange behavior editing PowerFind Pro string

Your video is certainly very weird! I'm sure editing like that is totally impossible. That said, I haven't been able to reproduce the issue. Pasting your find expression (regex) into the Find window and editing it behaves normally for me. Are you able to reproduce the problem from scratch? Also, is ...

Re: Really slow reacting to typing in 3.0.1

Thanks for your sample John, it was perfect. We replied to you privately already, but the problem ended up being an old custom toolbar item. The menu targeted by the toolbar item no longer exists, and Nisus Writer was incorrectly spending a lot of time continually trying to find it. We will fix this...

Re: Changing size of text in different places

Thanks to Adrian for the help. I'm glad you got it working Howard. In case this situation arises again, I want to link to our FAQ topic that explains a few ways you can search for formatting in Nisus Writer . You don't necessarily need to use Find & Replace expressions, though that's certainly a goo...

Re: Really slow reacting to typing in 3.0.1

I'm sorry the inexplicable slowdowns have returned. To diagnose this it would be helpful for us to see an Activity Monitor sample. Please see our FAQ on how to capture an activity sample . The FAQ goes into the details, but basically you'll want to trigger the unexpected slowdown — perhaps by furiou...

Re: unwanted changes

That's a very good point. Perhaps having so many different sections wasn't intentional in the first place. You don't need multiple sections unless you want to customize or differentiate parts of your document in these ways.

Re: Hebrew font issue

Thanks for sharing your file with the font issues. This looks like a problem with the system (macOS) text engine, which Nisus Writer uses. You may observe the same issue if you open your file in Apple's TextEdit. Here is the text in a few apps: Nisus Writer: nisus.png TextEdit: TextEdit.png Microsof...

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

That fits with my own experience. The last spellchecking mistake I saw highlighted in Apple Mail was a word that felt like a grammar checker gone awry. The word was "than" or "then" if I remember correctly.

Re: unwanted changes

It sounds like your document has multiple sections. Each section is allowed to have its own custom header, footer, margins, etc. That includes restarting numbering as well. To control whether section headers and numbering reset for a particular section you will want to adjust the options in the Sect...

Re: Hebrew font issue

What font are you using exactly? Can you send us an example document? Just a single sentence example document (as in your screenshot) would help. You can send it to us using the menu Help > Send Feedback or via email:
