Re: Can't sync documents in iCloud

Thank you for that detailed information. I'd like to investigate the matter further, to see why Nisus Writer behaves differently than your other apps. Hopefully you are willing to try a special debug version of Nisus Writer that might give us more information. I'll send you a private email to follow...

Re: Footnote paragraph style

There seems to be a misconception here. You can definitely achieve what you want, without the need for manually applying a paragraph style. Whenever I insert a new footnote, no paragraph style seems to be associated with it, so I need to click in it, go to the Palette Dock, and from the Styles choos...

Re: License problem

I'm sorry for the trouble, but this was indeed a temporary problem on our end. The issue had nothing to do with your specific license key; it was a generalized problem after some changes in our web hosting. All valid license keys should be working again now. If anyone is still having trouble, please...

Re: Corrupt spell checker database?

The words that are flagged as incorrectly spelled are controlled by the system (macOS), and whichever spelling dictionary or dictionaries you've chosen. That includes any words on which you've used the "Learn" command. Nisus Writer does mediate that process, but ultimately your text is sent to macOS...

Re: Can't sync documents in iCloud

That's unexpected. Your Nisus Writer files should still sync on Catalina, whether you're using iCloud Drive or another sync service. You mentioned a few of the error messages you see with iCloud. What about your other sync services? Do you see the same error messages, or are they different? One othe...

Re: Variable Typing

Maybe the information is in the reference manual, but with no index and no idea what to look for, I didn't know where to look. The relevant statement is made just before the table of numeric operators: The following mathematical operators always convert the values they operate on (operands) to a nu...

Re: Numbering style queries

The short answer is that Nisus Writer has no built-in way to do exactly what you want. There's no mechanism in place for indent commands to change the paragraph style. I'll consider your question a feature request– thanks! However, here are two list indent/outdent macros that can do what you want. E...

Re: Add a color from the color palette to menu item?

Þorvarður had some great suggestions, but I'll offer another one: use a character style. If you create a new character style with the desired tangerine coloring, then you can assign it a customized keyboard shortcut. Using a style has many other benefits, eg: it's only one step to update the colorin...

Re: removing page break mid-paragraph

Wonderful, thank you Iain! I replied to you via email directly, but this looks like a temporary layout issue with Page View, due to the global changes you were making. If you save the file, close it, and then reopen it, you should see it display correctly– the unwanted spacing will be removed. This ...

Re: removing page break mid-paragraph

No, not the footnotes, they're only one line long, and in any case removing them altogether makes no difference. Baffling. That's strange! Can you please post an example file, or share one with us privately? Using the menu Help > Send Feedback is always the best way to do that. With a file in hand ...

Re: removing page break mid-paragraph

Based on the posted screenshots, the relevant factors are the document's footnotes and note styles. The large whitespace occurs because the footnote cannot fully fit at the bottom of the page. For example, in the first screenshot you can see footnote reference #7 was pushed from the bottom of page 2...

Re: catalina and Nisus Pro

Here's a Nisus Writer Pro macro that scans your documents for PICT images and converts them all to a modern image format, eg: JPEG. However, this is a quick fix which will almost certainly result in a loss of image quality. PICT is a vector image format. To convert these old images the macro rasteri...

Re: 'Sum column'

I'm sorry but the Sum Column macro is only available in Nisus Writer Pro. There are a small number of macros available in Nisus Writer Express, but they are quite limited (eg: Quote Selection). All our advanced macro capabilities are only in Nisus Writer Pro. A person might be able to write a summat...
