Re: Opening files with the extension:'docx'

Nisus does a very good job of importing docx files in _most_ cases, but there are some in which it fails/has failed entirely, even after going through LO and export-to-rtf attempts. One is when the original Word document has sections with a mask applied. A couple of years ago I needed to translate s...

Re: Adding furigana

Unfortunately, Nisus does not have a furigana/ruby function. (It also does not have a vertical writing feature.) A workaround is to put the reading in parentheses following the word.

Re: catalina and Nisus Pro

I really don't know if this would be a work-around, but if they are static, could you not take a screen shot (png) of the equations in MathType (or on your Mojave machine) and use the screen shots?

3.04 and opening docx files -bug?

Ever since upgrading to 3.04 I have been unable to open .docx files in Japanese in NWP. (Have not tried English bc I don't have any) The following error is reported. I have tried opening files from a year or more ago that the previous version had to problem opening. If I open the file in Word and sa...

Re: text color

Alternatively, you could assign a key in the menu preferences to 'Red' and another to 'Black', and simply press the key to change the color of the text you are typing.
I use F6 for red and F7 for black, and the change is instantaneous -- that is, not an interruption to my work flow.

Sort bug in glossary files

Since upgrading to NWP 3.04, sorting a block of text in a glossary file (using the Edit:Transform Paragraphs:Ascending command, both from the menu and thru a macro) results in a superfluous New Line character being inserted after every Glossary Entry Break character. Is this a bug or an unintended '...

Re: Copy disabled

Every now and then Nisus also stops responding to any keyboard input for me. I have never been able to correlate this to any specific action I have taken, but the problem has been resolved by quitting and restarting Nisus. I have usually been able to quit using the mouse, and when not, cmd-escape to...

Re: Japanese top>bottom, right>left

I pasted the text in Word, which makes it very simple to format with a couple of clicks. Alas.

Re: Japanese top>bottom, right>left

Thank you. Unfortunately it is not a solution. As the instructions say: "The vertical text boxes are not a solution for full-page vertical text layout, but rather an extra feature to embellish your default horizontal text layout." I needed a full solution for a document written in Japanese, not an e...

Japanese top>bottom, right>left

The reason I started using Nisus many years ago was for its Japanese support. Until now, I have never had a need for J other than left>right, top>bottom as in English. Nisus supports right>left for Hebrew and other languages in horizontal lines from top to bottom. Is there a way to get Japanese in t...

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

Have you installed the 3.01 update?
Spelling problems were one of the fixes, and 3.01 fixed the problem for me.

Re: character recognition

Perhaps the problem is with Libre Office. Like Philip, opening the untitled1.doc directly in Nisus shows no problem. When I open the untitled1.doc in LO, everything appears fine. But when the document is then saved in LO as rtf, and Nisus opens that rtf file, the second line appears in Greek charact...
