Yes, you'll have to manually apply the formatting you desire after you insert the cross-reference. Ah, I thought so since there was no style for cross-references and I could find no way to create a style for them. New feature for version 1.1? Allowing us to define a custom style for cross reference...

Caption for images/tables

9 months for a rejection in a journal ain't too bad. It's quite surprising, but in the computer science world, it takes about 3 years for a paper to go from submission to print. I think notification of acceptance/rejection comes in about 9 months. I would use Nisus for my journal papers, if it provi...

I should pipe up and say that NWE helped me get the weirdest rejection letter from an academic journal I've ever gotten.
I would be interested to know what that weird rejection letter said? Perhaps the document produced with NWE didn't meet their guidelines?

Enabling Smart Punctuation and Smart Ordinals

I'm trying to get smart punctuation and automatic superscripting of ordinals in the British English, and it's not happening. Those options are grayed out.

How do I get them enabled? Do they work with US English only?
