Seeing the url previously assigned to a NWP Hyperlink

Hi, I have previously used NWP Menu /Insert /Hyperlink to insert quite a few clickable link into my text, which has been saved as a .doc. But although that text has gone blue and is underlined, how do I get to see what the link is? How do I check that these links have the right url? I ask because wh...

Re:

In my opinion aliasing the whole Application Support folder would definitely be the way to go. In fact, if I were you I'd see about changing the location of the entire Home folder in both OS versions to point to your separate data partition. I'm pretty sure such a thing is possible on OSX. Aliasing...

Re: Nisus Writer Pro 1.1 Released

In reply to the post about NWP1.1 on MacWorld at http://www.macworld.com/article/133584/2008/05/nisus.html?lsrc=mwweek I posted this reply on 2008/05/26: Hmmm. Last century, I too used to use the original Nisus Writer 6 on OS 9. Yet Mac OSX has been out a while now - I believe Apple stopped selling ...

Importing Microsoft Word documents

I import lots of MS-Word .docs from other people which all seem to be written in Windows. And I also have MS-Office so I can see how they originally looked. Yet every such .doc with a graphic imported in NWP seems to need re-formatting. Only if there's no graphic do they seem to be more or less fine...

The location of the Application Support folder is defined by the system to be inside your home directory. I imagine you have plans to keep your home directory consistent between OS versions, and this should present no problems to NWP. I'm actually wondering if all I need do is to alias the Nisus AS...

(ii) if you are the sort of person who leaves your computer running for long periods with a text-processing app open, while you may be opening and closing individual files, you will be incrementally taking up more and more RAM leading to the use of virtual memory and a lot of swapping out to disk, ...

The message is clear -- if you are still on a G4 or G5, don't go to Leopard. Stay with Tiger. Recently, I upgraded to OS 10.5.2. And now, regretfully, I've decided to take greenmorpher's advice and stay (revert) to 10.4.11 until Leopard's serious performance degradation problems have been resolved....

Something I don't see in the newsletter is the inclusion of hyperlinks and bookmarks when generating a PDF file. This is one of the most important missing features for me. Paolo I have already requested clickable hyperlinks as a feature request for a future release. If enough of us let Nisus know t...

Largest number of pages for a NWP file.

What would be the largest sized file (number of pages) that wouldn't cause performance problems? I have several large files, over 100 pages, and I'm using 10.4.11 on a twin 867 G4. This is more or less the minimum configuration for Leopard. My largest file is close to 500 pages. This takes over a m...

NWX reliability and speed

I've been using Nisus for maybe 3 years now, and various other word processors for 20! I like the format and menus of NWX. It's way better than MSWord, and latest NWX 2.7 is LOTS better than previous versions. But NWX still has serious speed issues with large files, a change to a style in a 150 page...
