Re: Missing button?

I think you mean the "lozenge" that was in all standard applications that had toolbars. It's one of the things that disappeared in the Lion re-working of the interface. So it's not something that would ever have been in the customise toolbar sheet, as it was never actually in the toolbar, but in the...

Re: Crashing on initial save in Lion

I doubt that it's a conflict with Default Folder, as long as you're up to date with it. I'm running NWP 2.0.1 and DF 4.4.4 on Lion 10.7.1, and it is working just fine for me.

Custom list number gets repeated on reopening

I am using a custom list number to generate automatic table numbers in my document. I have a list style called Table Number, which is defined as being a number list (1 in the list of tabs, not 1.1), with "Before Text" as "Table " and "After Text" as ".". So it generates things like: Table 1.<tab>Tab...

Re: Hang in document with tables

I've been having more trouble, and seem to have isolated one of the difficulties. It seems to be when I select several rows of a column to merge them. The sticking point seems to be associated with where the page break comes. The table has a header row. If I select the last column with the two rows ...

Re: Hang in document with tables

Document sent.

I was able to get it going again by opening it in Word, making a small change, then saving it, which added 25% to the file size! Opening it again in NWP seems to be OK again.

Hang in document with tables

I have a document with (so far) two complex tables. The rest of the document is straightforward text. Since yesterday, NWP will hang (beachball cursor) soon after trying to open the document. Sometimes I get as far as the document and am able to type a sentence or two before it hangs. Looking at the...

I've had problems with slow typing speed in a couple of documents, one fairly lengthy (about 17,000 words), and one three pages, mostly tables. I would concur that it's likely to be since Leopard, but I don't want to go back to Tiger just to check it out! I suspect it's with older (!) machines like ...
