Re: NWP Feedback to send file both with and without changes

Yes, indeed it is. But why?

Don't I recall you responding one time that I'd chosen the wrong one to send, and I should mostly send the original? So it's something that would benefit us all...

Re: NWP to open all the files that were previously open

Aaah! Now I understand. So it seems I will need to live with the inconvenience. Or maybe NWP could give the user an option in the recover window to reopen all files. Actually, NWP is very reliable, very user-friendly, very capable, and a joy to use. I mostly find that whenever NWP crashes, it's beca...

NWP to open all the files that were previously open

When NWP has crashed, it helpfully comes up with a list of saved files and their change status. So we can see which version to keep. But doing this means that NWP does NOT open all the files that were previously open. But it does normally since I have this checked in Prefs. So this is a request for ...

NWP Feedback to send file both with and without changes

NWP has an excellent Feedback mechanism, and the most recent enhancements improved it immensely. :) Yet when a file has changed, NWP asks if you want to send the file with or without changes. But I sometimes don't know and so would like a third option - both. Then when it's not clear to me which to ...

I forgot to ask about enhancement suggestions. Since you'll want to know how many people are interested in each one, I presume you want suggestions and enhancement requests posted in this forum, then we can have a discussion...

Re: NWP 2.04 crash

Hi Martin,

This post reports a NWP crash. But whenever I see a bug or have a crash, I generally report it via NWP's revamped and excellent Menu > Help > Send Feedback instead.

Do Nisus have a preference for where to report bugs? How about a crash? In this forum, or via Send Feedback?

Re: Save changes doesn't work in Find/Replace window

Hi Martin, I don't think anyone would be confused. Find/Replace works on the window behind it (second frontmost window?) so Saving any changes when in Find/Replace would work on exactly the same (second frontmost) window that Replace has just changed. So Save is indeed a special case - these changes...

Re: NWP to keep track of files/folders once moved or renamed

Hi Martin, In the Finder, when I Copy a file or a folder name, and Paste that link into my NWP document, then double clicking on that name opens the file or folder. A very VERY useful cross-referencing facility. For example. I write articles, usually several on a single topic. Each article is a sepa...

Re: Save changes doesn't work in Find/Replace window

Thanks, Hamid. I've saved this nwm file and, having allocated Command S to it via Preferences, my Save now works as needed. :) But other users might not know how to implement such a work-around for this problem, so most users will still find it a valuable enhancement suggestion... Appreciate your he...

Re: Save changes doesn't work in Find/Replace window

Thanks for the suggestion Hamid.

I've just tried it and, since the Find/Replace window is frontmost, Menu > File > Save is greyed out. So no, neither that nor Control-S work for me...

NWP to keep track of files/folders once moved or renamed

In the Finder I use a conceptual view of my data which uses aliases, and in NWP I make extensive use of links to both folders and files. When I move or change the name of a file or folder, in the Finder there's no problem, the aliases stay valid. But in NWP, whenever I have moved or changed the name...

Save changes doesn't work in Find/Replace window

When you've finished Finding and Replacing using the Find/Replace window, it's generally a good idea to Save the changes. Yet Control-S Save just beeps at you, it doesn't work in the Find/Replace window. So this is either an enhancement request, or a report of a curious anomaly, is it even a bug? Wh...

Re: Feature Request

Another very useful enhancement would be for QuickFix to fix a spelling mistake whether or not the word is capitalized. Currently a capitalized mistake needs a separate entry to be created, which takes extra time and effort - as well as double the space.

Re: Feature Request

Let me add my vote for a split document view. Currently, I just copy the document and view that as the second, but two views into the same window would be easier to work with.
