Re: Nisus Pro and the Mac App store

Thanks to the App Store the small software vendor no longer has to pay for and manage a sales website, payment facilities, etc. -- all they need now is a support facility of some sort. That can save them a fortune and make it easier for small developers to sell their software. But you continue to i...

Re: Nisus Pro and the Mac App store

Personally I suspect that if you buy Nisus Writer Pro from the App Store and leave a positive review then you are doing Nisus more good than buying it direct from them. There's indeed value in positive reviews, but drshan did not mention leaving positive reiews - that was reh-im-mond. Drshan was ju...

Re: Nisus Pro and the Mac App store

If I was buying Nisus new today I would definitely buy it from the Mac App Store, and if Apple ever provide a way to transfer pre-existing licenses to the Mac App Store I'll transfer my Nisus license to it in a heartbeat. And hand Apple a third of the price, taking that away from the developers? Wh...

Re: Opening preferences

I sent in a bug report on a similar slow-loading issue a while ago. It happens every time I bring an open NWP Preferences window from the dock, I'm now running NWP 2.0.6 on my Snow Leopard MacMini. When I sent in the requested Activity Monitor sample file, it didn't help. So I subsequently stopped h...

Re: shape moves to previous page on print

I've documented numerous issues with shapes in NWP over the years, including with latest 2.0.6. Unfortunately, this is one area where the usual outstanding Nisus quality is noticeably lacking. Let's hope the next version addresses many of these shape problems - and that it comes out sooner rather th...

Re: How to change newline macro to remove both List & TOC st

To get this macro to insert a TOTALLY plain line, one that also has no color nor bolding etc, then it also needs the following two lines

Menu 'Format:Remove Attributes Except Styles'
Menu 'Character Style:Remove Character Styles'

How to change default action in Find Nearby Words.nwm–Solved

Hi, I find the attached Find Nearby Words macro very, very useful - thanks again Martin. Yet I always want the expression put into the Find panel, so I can modify it later if needed. How do I modify this section so the default action changes and the expression, by default, goes into the Find panel? ...

Re: Does Nisus undersell itself when numbering upgrades?

From the financial and marketing viewpoints, you have a valid point. Perhaps when Nisus made the substantial improvements to NWP 2 to interface with (was it Bookends?) several years ago, they could have called that a major release and charged an upgrade fee for it. But for 2.0.5, even if the macro i...

Re: Does Nisus undersell itself when numbering upgrades?

NWP 2.0.5 had an enormous number of bug-fixes. It took over a year because Nisus waited to issue so many at once. You already know my view that far fewer bug-fixes issued more often would cause people to endure bugs and their work-arounds for less time leading to improved customer satisfaction in th...

Re: Footnote reference style doesn't update

An override is a local change to a style. In the tag bar at the bottom. What I called the "Footer Style Tag" is your "Footnote Reference" character style in the bottom tag bar, I didn't have your name in front of me to use when I wrote this. But why is your footer style not a paragraph style? don't ...
