screen redraw

Up thru the present beta (2.5.4peek), I get dropped lines and horizontal white lines through existing copy when I delete characters or a whole line. Scrolling up or down restores the page correctly, and edits are correct. The good news is that soft return, flakey in the first 3 betas, seems solid in...

Various bugs

Various bugs appear:

MAC OSX 10.4.1 G5 1G

Never can get ligatures, no matter what font I use. Haven't seen ligatures since 10.2

Soft return comes and goes, sometimes in the same document.

Same redraw problems, except I get doubled text when scrolling after delete.
Disappears after second scroll.

Soft return

I just want a soft return.
Line feed - no new paragraph.

Fixed line height - Please

For anyone doing WP work for distribution/publication, fixed line height adds tremendously to the professional appearance of the work. While I know NWE isn't a desktop publishing app, I originally chose Nisus (in the good old days of OS 8-9) because the printed page it produced by default looked, an...

Double ditto

The No. 1 irritation in NWE is the lack of a new line key combination.

Can toggle palette from

Edit -> Special Charavters or from menu bar.
Works fine from menu bar or Edit with all fonts except the killer supra.
BTW - Panther 10.3.5 here.

Font works fine in Text Edit

and every other text editor I've tried.
I'm distressed to admit that I currently have six (6!) text editors.
I was hoping that NWE would supplant them all, but not yet.

Nisus 2.0.1 imitates hotpoint dryer with chenille bedspread

Caused my Cube 500, RAM 1.25G, 120GB to hop across the room (figuratively). I use a big (12+mb) Unicode font called Titus Cyberbit Basic for transcribing ancient Greek, Latin, Syriac etc. When I tried to open the Edit->Special Characters box to use the Unicode extended sets, Nisus did a hard hang wi...

Very quiet

from Nisus corporate to the patrons of its game. I've paid my upgrade dues, asked for help in specific areas, pointed out discrepancies between the manual and the program, and . . . nothing. A sickly silence. Is there no online support in these fora? Even for obvious bugs and glitches? Bet users wou...

Invisibles?

Any suggestions on showing invisible formatting like paragraph markers?
The info in help isn't correct (use View menu).

Also, what is code for line feed w/out paragraph? Used to be Shift-enter.
Thanks.
John

ps-asked, or commented about in earlier posts, no help from Co.

Nostalgia repost from above

A repost because I wanted to ensure users saw this also. Rebooted into Sys 9 today to do some Fontographer work. Thought I'd visit the OLD Nisus (6.0.3). Excluding the speed present in the OS 9 environment, the ease of use and comfort of the OS 9 release of Nisus is enough to make you cry. Documents...

Agree, but . . .

I'm willing to give them (the gurus at Nisus) a chance to present a new, greater OSX version of the great word processor we all admired in OS9. It ain't there yet. They know it. I voted 'keep going' by paying for the new OSX version, to help finance the ongoing effort. I wanted to encourage the effo...

Rant

I have awaited an OSX native Nisus. Nisus was my sole wp for years. I've followed the teaser emails, checked the web site, and wondered WHAT is taking so long. Finally, I had to buy MS Word for OSX. After downloading the public beta, I'm very disappointed. This program is soooo unfinished that one w...
