I take it that's the standard behavior. You already have all the special groups, so there are none available.
That's exactly right. If you have all the special folders listed in your Document Manager window, then the option to add one won't be available.

Re: Can't save a new collection to the the Style Library

It worked like a charm. As soon as I added the Style Library to Document Manager (I had no idea it could be added or removed, as far as I know had always been there) I could see the saved styles and import them in any of my documents. Only had one Style Library folder. That's great to hear, I'm gla...

Re: Can't save a new collection to the the Style Library

Hi Martin, nice to hear from you! I work with texts, and Nisus is the best word processing software I ever got my hands on -- it is to my own advantage that I keep using it (I always greatly enjoyed your Nisus bulletins too, so full of humour) That's very kind of you to say, thank you :) My problem...

Re: Nisus Writer Pro (and Express) Suggestions

Þorvarður is right that Nisus Writer does let you customize some of the aspects you mentioned. For more details please see our FAQ on how to configure the default window size and position.

Re: Links between documents

if I invoke this in a Nisus URL link ... I still get a dialogue asking me to confirm the location of the file, and when I do that it still does not take me to the specified page. That's expected if you enter the file path into Nisus Writer. Ultimately Nisus Writer stores and processes links to file...

Re: Table with a gap between rows

This is going to be hard to answer confidently without seeing the exact file data, but most likely the file was somehow transformed or edited in a way that introduced the unwanted spaces. What software did your correspondent use to edit the RTF file? Did she see the unwanted spaces already when she ...

Re: Links between documents

Þorvarður is right that macros can do a lot of really nice things with bookmarks and might be able to satisfy your workflow, depending on your exact needs. However, you're right that there's no easy built-in feature that allows cross-references target bookmarks in a different document. Currently cro...

Re: Can't save a new collection to the the Style Library

Hello Luc, and thanks for using Nisus Writer for so long! We do appreciate that :) I'm sorry you're having trouble with your Style Library. Hopefully we can clear up any confusion and get you working smoothly. Conceptually the Style Library is just a special folder on disk. Nisus Writer can load and...

Re: Escape from Footnote change request

Thank you for the feedback and suggestion Mike. I expect that your idea would be an improvement. Although a user will still generally need to take extra actions after pressing Escape to get to the right typing spot, it's probably a better default that the next keystroke won't replace the entire foot...

Re: Changing my email

Hello Trevor, and thanks for the question. The quick answer is that your copy of Nisus Writer (the app itself) doesn't care if your email address changes. It will continue to run using your existing license key however you entered it earlier. You don't need to make any changes. However, you may stil...

Re: Preferences for selecting text, strike-through, &c

The text selection color in Nisus Writer can indeed be customized: 1. Open your Nisus Writer preferences. 2. Switch to the Appearance pane. 3. Look at the bottom of the pane for the label "Colors". 4. Choose the "Selection" category, inside which you'll see a host of colors you can customize. The co...

Re: Cannot increase number of VISIBLE table-rows beyond 24

Tables in Nisus Writer can have any number of rows. If you have a lot of rows in a table they will automatically flow between pages. What you described with some rows not showing is unusual. It's hard to know from just the screenshot you posted, but I suspect that you accidentally placed the table i...

Re: how move items up / down a list?

Thank you for the updated macros Philip! Coincidentally a customer just wrote us privately about this and your new macros should help.

One final improvement: allow the macros to move non-list paragraphs. I'm attaching versions of your macros that add this feature, which the customer also requested.

Re: 2nd-level TOC entries as a single paragraph

Considering this problem: I was first wondering if one could mix TOC styles, e.g., have one style for Level 1 and another for Level 2, so that only Level 1 would get leaders and page numbers. This does not seem to be possible either. This is partially possible, using a single TOC style. If you use ...

Re: 2nd-level TOC entries as a single paragraph

Firstly, the feature I'm looking for doesn't currently exist in NWP (I was wondering if there was simply some bit of the manual or some forum message I'd missed). That's correct. Nisus Writer has no built-in way to format a generated TOC so that entries are not on a separate line. You'd need to use...
