Anne,

I am pretty much in the same boat as you. Things work under 10.3.8. People have reported problems with 10.4.0 and 10.3.9 so why rush to upgrade. One difference, however, is that 2.1.3 seems to open 2.1.1 files fine for me.

I am also on 10.3.8 and I also can't start up. The nisus icon "zooms" when I double click on it but it never shows up in the dock. No splash screen, nothing. This is on a dual 1.42 Ghz G4 PowerMac with 2 GB RAM.

Is it the same build as the sneak peek? Should those of us who downloaded the sneak peek also download this official release?

NWE 2.5a1 seems remarkably stable for something marked as an alpha release. However, I have been having quite a few glitches. I haven't been reporting them because seem to fix themselves and then I can't reproduce them. Still they are annoying. I am interested if others are having similar experience...

If we added another icon button that would pop-up custom palette group names, would that do the trick for those of you who miss creating your own palette groups? So you would have four buttons that were just buttons and a fifth one that was a pop up menu? Maybe I am just missing something but I am ...

It seems that you can't change the paragraph style of the first paragraph after a page break.

That alone almost sells me on trying the beta, but first a couple questions. Can I use 2.1.1 and 2.5 simultaneously? And d 2.5 files open in 2.1.1 with styles intact?

... and I still cannot find the link to the site you referenced. If you click on the link to the store on this page, there is a link that says "More Purchase Options" under the three listed options for buying NWE. You are right that they could make it more obvious though. Congratulations on joining...

Actually, Pages seems to have multiple selection.

However the styles don't seem to be hierarchical which would be a big advantage for NWE in my book.

All I know is that I lost the style. :( You figure out why! :) If you reproduced the bug, I for one would like to see a fix. What is wrong with you? The guy asked a perfectly reasonable question. he found one rather specific circumstance in which he could reproduce the bug. He wants to know if you ...

I also played with Pages some at MacWorld yesterday and agree with Charles. However, the writing tools in Pages are a step up from TextEdit (it does have styles and such), even if they don't match NWE. I put a manuscript I am working in NWE on my iDisk and opened it in Pages. I was a little disappoi...

Anyone go to MacWorld and actually try it out. To me it looks like its only real advantage over NWE is in graphics handling. I doubt that Pages will beat NWE's implimentation of styles etc.

I was specifically thinking about using this feature in a macro. To do that I think you want to specify the style you are searching for in the macro.
