Re: Pro 2.1.2 makes me save documents TWICE...

I'm glad you mentioned this. It spurred me to write. After upgrading to 2.1.2, and still after reverting to 2.1 because of 2.12's problem with double-expansion of glossary entries, I have the same problem with glossary files opened and saved by a macro. A macro I have used for years creates glossary...

Re: glossary expansion improvement -- broken in 2.12

Thank you again for your reply. I don't think the problem is with the glossary file. I created a new blank document and expanded some glossary entries. They would not expand a second time until I saved, closed, and reopened the document (trash.rtf in the 2 files I sent via Feedback). I booted up 2.1...

Re: glossary expansion improvement -- broken in 2.12

Thanks for the reply. The QuickFix being the typo corrections? Then no. Entries are only in the glossary files. It is definitely happening on this end. Not all the time or everytime, but under conditions I haven't nailed down yet. It does not happen with "new" text. For example, if the glossary entr...

glossary expansion improvement -- broken in 2.12

Running osx 10.9.5 and the new Nisus 2.12. In 2.11, glossary abbreviations only very rarely expanded a second time. In 2.12, they do so frequently. Assume the glossary entry 21 printer 21 Type 21(period) and you get "printer 21." as expected. In 2.11, deleting the period and typing a space or anothe...

glossary expansion improvement

I just discovered that NWP has gotten a lot smarter with 2.1. Specifically, if an abbreviation has already been expanded, even in text copied from another document, NWP no longer expands the entry again. For example, if the abbrev is "42" and expands to "widget wombat 42", typing any trigger does no...

windows lost on restart and other Space oddities

This problem is not new with v2.1. I work with a large external monitor connected to a MBPro. There are often 3 or more documents open at once, perhaps with some on the laptop screen. Even with none on the laptop screen, the following happens. (A) 1. Arrange 3 documents side by side on the external ...

v2.1.1 b3: Backup folder not present dlg

I work on a MBPro using a thumb drive to collect the backup files saved automatically to a second location picked thru the Saving preferences. Since v2.1, if I forget to connect the thumb drive before saving a document in Nisus, the following dialog appears. [attachment=0]no backup folder dlg.png[/a...

Re: v2.1 beta 3: file opening oddity

I don't remember exactly the first time, but it was most likely beta-1, and when it happened yesterday, I was double clicking on the filename from the Open dlg presented by beta 3 -- not from the Finder.

It it happens again, I'll send the logs.

v2.1 beta 3: file opening oddity

Some days ago using a pre-beta 3 version of 2.1, I opened an RTF file saved by Nisus 3 or 4 (yes, a long time ago) only to have it display as garbage. Knowing that can't be right, I closed the document, confirmed it was RTF from info in the Finder, and opened the file again by clicking Open in the f...

Re: Save vs Apple versioning (?) problem

re: which should say 2.1.1 beta 2. I checked that before posting. It's some beta version. The About screen in the version I downloaded on Monday morning says "2.1.1 public beta" (not 2). The file offered for download from http://nisus.com/update/pro-v211-beta.php 5 minutes ago also still says "...v2...

Re: Save vs Apple versioning (?) problem

[quote]"Ask to keep changes when closing documents"[/quote] Aha. Un/checking this option reproduces the behavior you describe. Note regular rtf documents affected by macros that end in Save are _not_ similarly affected. Only glossaries. While you search for the solution, perhaps part of the problem ...

Re: Save vs Apple versioning (?) problem

Thank you for confirming that you also get the -Edited appearing.

I tried your test, and still get the prompt to save the already-saved changes.

Curiouser and curiouser...

Don't know if it matters, but am running osx 10.9.5 on a Macbook Pro.

Re: Save vs Apple versioning (?) problem

Further observation suggests there is a timing problem. If I key cmd-W quickly enough after hearing the beep, the file closes silently before "- Edited" has a chance to appear. No prompt to save changes. If I wait a second or so, Edited appears, resulting in the described problem. So something that ...
