Re: Large selections—like 20k words—showing no word, par., or char. counts (bug?)

It seems the number of countable words in a selection is a proportion of the total number of words in a file. In a file of 3,083,437 words I was able to have a selection with 1,694,545 words counted.

Re: Thesaurus pane doesn't show

It is true, the knob is quite slippery; anyway try this: Quit Nisus Thesaurus if it is running. Then, from your Home Library/Containers/com.nisus.NisusThesaurus/Data/Library/Saved Application State/com.nisus.NisusThesaurus.savedState (Folder), delete the files: data.data window_1.data window_2.data ...

Re: NWP and Bookend - Case issues

In Bibliography Options in the Format Manager for APA 7th, check the Case options; it may be that the drop-down menu is at "small CAPS":

Re: "Find" text-field populates search strings from other applications

I agree this is undesirable.
I had made a feature request for this Find option. I have Jedit Ω which has the option to not share Find strings with other apps:

What you describe can only happen when a left-to-right script language paragraph style is applied to the selected text.
To overcome the problem, the paragraph style applied should have at least "Language: Arabic" attribute:
