Re: Find not working on document

Your experience is the same as mine, but this computer is running 10.6.8 still. I also noticed the same on another running 10.7.x. Haven't gotten around to installing 10.8. My setup is also quite minimalist, although the programs I use frequently are in the dock. Nice (?) to hear someone else has no...

Re: Find not working on document

Re: full screen For my part, no. I suspect the problem is more Nisus-related than OSX or Spaces because sometimes Nisus macros get confused and work on a non-active document. But this, too, is random and I have not figured out any specific actions that always precede it happening. Nisus is also the ...

Re: Find not working on document

Not sure if this is related to your problem, but Nisus may be lost in "space." I have found that when Nisus is open in one Apple "space" and other applications are open in other spaces, the menu bar may show Nisus as the active application, and Nisus docs may be open and visible, but Nisus does not ...

Re: Page Break keyboard command

Alternatively, you could assign your own shortcut -- such as command-P-B -- that will work with whatever keyboard is connected.

Re: display word count?

Another option is to Insert > Automatic Number > Word Count in the document (such as below where you are typing?). The number updates frequently, and updating can be triggered by various actions. Assign a key combination to the menu selection and you can also easily get the number on the fly.

Re: Q re signing, Gatekeeper

Thank you for the explanation(s).

re: iCloud storage

Since any document storage "solution" somewhere on the Internet is inherently incompatible with client confidentiality and security requirements, inability to access any iCloud features Nisus may add won't affect this user.

Q re signing, Gatekeeper

re: Nisus Writer Pro is now signed using an Apple Developer ID, so it runs under Gatekeeper (OSX 10.8). Could you please explain what this means? Will future updates and upgrades have to be acquired through Apple? No longer able to simply give our money to Nisus directly when needed? Thank you. @ re...

Re: Show Macros Folder broken in Lion

Never mind, I guess. It seems Finder was improved to a higher level of flakiness. Restarting Finder brought windows back.

Show Macros Folder broken in Lion

? Recently installed Lion to a test drive, and using Nisus Pro 2 there, Show Macros Folder in Finder does not work. Well, maybe. With Lion, I can find the Macros folder in Finder in "Mission Control," but clicking there just sends me back to Nisus with no access to the folder or files. Is this actua...

Re: keyboard selection from Prompt Options dialog

re: full keyboard access on/off That seems to be it. Mine was set to input and text areas only, so no amount of tabbing helped, but changing the setting to all controls (or whatever it is labelled in English) let me tab around btw the radio buttons and the stop macro and OK buttons. I have not teste...

keyboard selection from Prompt Options dialog

I use Prompt Options to display a dialog box with a number of variable choices, selected by radio buttons. The macro and the dialog box work fine. The problem is that sometimes -- and very rarely --I can use the up/down cursor arrows to cycle through and select the desired radio button. Being able t...

thesaurus 1.1

I saw on Macintouch that thesaurus 1.1 is available in the App store for free. I came to nisus.com (partly to give nisus the 30% cut ;) ) to download it, but only 1.07 is available there.

Is this only available from the Apple App Store?

(more) Lost in Space

I wrote previously about Nisus getting lost between Spaces sometimes after waking up. That usually happens (when it happens) in connection with opening a file from the Finder. The computer slept again last night, but Nisus was well behaved, until... The preferences dialog was opened with two files o...
