LinkBack problem

I have NWE 2.5 and OmniGraffle 4.0 and decided to play with LinkBack. I created a drawing in OG and copied and pasted it into a document in NWE. This works well. When I double-click the drawing in NWE it starts OG and I can change the drawing and the changes appear in NWE. This is as it should be. T...

Draft Background color

Using 2.5a5 if you select any colour apart from white for the Draft Background Color in the General preferences, you get pages of errors in the Console log, e.g. Jun 19 15:10:39 Fenris /Applications/Beta Software/Nisus Beta/Nisus Writer Express.app/Contents/MacOS/Nisus Writer Express: CGContextSetCM...

I have just started using 2.5 alpha 5 and can't get the spelling window to work. If I control-click on a high-lighted word and select "Learn spelling", nothing happens. Have tried going in to the spelling window through the Edit pulldown and same thing.

I also cannot download from the archive site and have no idea what the password is.
If you send me your e-mail address off-list I will send a copy of the merge macro and instructions.

It is possible to do mail merge using macros. If you look through the Nisus List archives: http://listserv.dartmouth.edu/archives/nisus.html for June 2003 you will find e-mails from David Linker explaining how to use his macro. I have been able to use the macro for simple mail merge tasks like creat...

Ulrich I started having the same problem as yourself with Nisus getting part-way through its initialisation and then simply vanishing with no error messages. I looked in the MacOS9 System Folder and found a Clipboard file which was 12K in size - this file should be zero size apparently (someone repo...

There is a recent topic on the MacFixit site that mentions problems with running Classic under 10.3.9.
Apparently this can be resolved by turning off the Apple Menu Options extension in Classic.
Check the MacFixit site for more info: http://www.macfixit.com/

The size in the character palette changes (goes up by 1 from 11 to 12) and the text size itself gets larger as text in one cell now takes two lines instead of one line in the original table.

Copying a table changes the style

I am experimenting with tables and have created one that I am satisfied with and which uses my "Normal" style which uses the Gentium font at size=11. When I select the table, then Copy it and Paste it to another part of the document, the size changes to '12'. The font changed to Times at one point a...

Trash prefs?

I am also having crashing problems in 2.1 but not as often as 50% - more like 20%.

I have reported this to Nisus but have no idea what is causing it. If I do find a cause or a fix I will report back.

Unable to set up table properly

I am using NWE 2.1 and was playing around with the table tool today. What I want to do it create a table with 9 columns and 12 rows but I want columns 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 to be the same size (e.g. 3cm) and columns 2, 4, 6, and 8 to be a different size (e.g. 0.5cm). It appears the only way to do this i...
