You may be right. Spotlight just stopped working for me also. I've just downloaded Onyx to perform the maintainance you recommend. I've been using Macs since 1984 and this is first time that was required. Oh well, as things get more complicated I guess I have to expect this. (I'm so spoiled...) BTW,...

Results of recommended procedure

I performed the recomended procedure on the font book and found a problem with a font "mari" which I removed. However, independently of this, I've found that dividing my novel into two parts (35,000 words each) solves the problem. At this point I'm not sure if my font problem caused the apparent lim...

Problem getting worse — need advice

I have 768 MB memory with no other applications running. The problem appears to be getting worse. Instead of days before this appears (after restarting Nisus) it is now hours. Can you tell me how to do the remedies you recommended, or at least point me at the instructions? How do I uninstall and rei...

Apparent Limit on Number of Words in Single Project

I’m using Nisus Writer Express version 2.7 running on Mac OS X 10.4.7 and I’ve come across a problem that is slowly bringing my project to a standstill. About 60,000 words into my novel I started having the software freeze up on me. The application no longer accepts input and the ability to select g...

PhD Paranoia

To those that don't do innovative research, your post probably sounds like paranoia—but it isn't, especially these days. Several months ago I sent a letter (through a journal) to a well-know physicist at the top of his field arguing that a recent article he had written in the journal was wrong-heade...

TextEdit was able to open the file and recover my text

I tried opening the file in Appleworks and Appleworks crashed. I then tried opening the file in TextEdit and I got a very strange file but it looks like all the text is there—the text, in TextEdit, is in small boxes scattered over many pages. I'd be glad to send this file to NISUS if it would help t...

Serious problem with NISUS Writer 2.5

I just lost two weeks work. I opened up my saved file to find that, instead of the chapter of my novel I was working on, the last paragraph I had selected before saving was repeated over and over again for 20 pages. This is the second serious problem I've had with NISUS Writer 2.5 and I haven't been...

Detailed description of problem

This is the only document I've had this problem with. It was a straight conversions from an AppleWorks document. I think I saved the document as an rtf in AppleWorks and then opened it up in Nisus. However, I might have done a clipboard paste instead — I just don't remember — but that seems unlikely...

??? in document, lost formatting when reopened NISUS doc

A week ago I converted the AppleWorks version of a novel into RTF format and re-opened it in NISUS Writer. I'd heard some good things about this product and my intent was to convert all my writing projects. The conversion was not perfect so I spent a lot of time reformatting for NISUS. Then, in NISU...
