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...

[quote]he new beta should also fix the problems you had with the Save command not fully clearing the document's edited state. [/quote] Alas, it does not. the behavior remains the same.

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 ...

Re: Save vs Apple versioning (?) problem

Should also note that the grayed-out "- Edited" does not appear when other macros that Save a non-glossary (rtf) document end. This only happens with glossary files.

Re: Save vs Apple versioning (?) problem

I just noticed that after the Save beep, " - Edited" is quickly appended to the filename at the top of the document window grayed out.

Save is the last statement in the macro. The file is definitely saved.

Re: cmd-F13 oddity

After changing to the shortcut with the gremlins displayed, both macros behave as expected.

I wondered if F13 was being triggered at the same time as cmd-F13 (without the gremlins), but dunno.

Re: Save vs Apple versioning (?) problem

Perhaps the only thing special about the documents is they are glossary files (ngloss) in the Glossaries folder. The macros call a separate macro to open the glossary to edit, then does a bit of text manipulation, and then ends with Select All Select End Type Text $pasteText Glossary Entry Break Sav...

cmd-F13 oddity

pre-v2.1 a macro was assigned the shortcut cmd-F13 (function key), which appeared in the menu keys preference pane with the squiggly command key character followed by "F13". Another macro was/is assigned simply F13.This appearance carried over to v2.1. However, the behavior changed. Whenever I key c...

Save vs Apple versioning (?) problem

Numerous macros for adding to glossary files end with Save, leaving the window open. Sometimes I will further edit the entries, but most often simply type cmd-W immediately to then close the window *without making any further changes.* pre-2.1 this worked fine. With v2.1, however, an irritating dial...
