Hebrew frustration

I am having problems with a paragraph in a normal English style with embedded text that is of a Hebrew character style. When the text is at the end of the paragraph, anything I try to type in English after the Hebrew is inserted before the Hebrew, rather than after, and the English appears backwards...

Re: Misformed Hebrew Shin and Sin

A little more information: I am using 10.4.11 - if this problem does not occur in leopard, that would certainly be a reason to upgrade. I also occasionally have the problem of New Peninim MT initially appearing inclined, and having to go to the font palate to remove the italics. I have a Hebrew styl...

Re: Misformed Hebrew Shin and Sin

The font is not different - I didn't change anything. The only letter that appears in a different font is the shin - the other letters are all New Peninim MT in both screenshots.

Misformed Hebrew Shin and Sin

When I type the Hebrew letters Shin or Sin into a document, they are not formed properly, as in this file: Hebrew misformed.gif However, after I close the file and reopen it, the shin and sin are properly formed, as in this file: Hebrew saved and reopened.gif I have submitted this as a bug ever sinc...

The beta versions of NWP do not have the help files. If your non-beta version of NWE or NWP do not have help files, then as has been noted, re-download the app files.

If the cursor within a paragraph in a particular style, all you need to do is go to the gear menu underneath the styles, to the paragraph style mini-icon at the bottom of the window, or to the Format/paragraph style menu on the menu bar, and select either "select all style" or "select style range." ...

Thanks, Martin. Unfortunately, the very reason that I want it to be smaller is that I need to email it to others. Could you mark this as a request for a future version - to find some way of allowing Nisus to internally reduce the size of images in a way that still makes the file compatible with othe...

Unusually large Nisus Writer file size

I created a flyer with two graphics and a couple paragraphs of text. One graphic was 1.3 MB and the other was 360 KB. Both were .jpg. I pasted the graphics in the file and resized them (smaller). My question is this: the size of the Nisus Writer (pro) file is a whopping 16.9 MB! Any idea why the fil...

This is one of my favorite Nisus features because I am always moving around documents and losing the cursor. No matter where you are in a document, pressing Enter will move you to the cursor and hightlight the line for a moment so you can see where it is.

Presumably, 3.0 will contain numerous enhancements. A poll which gives the option of only one response is really not the best way to ask the question. What you want is a pole that allows multiple, ranked answers. I think that the other threads in which people have made requests have spoken loud and ...

Look, I'm generally not in favor of excessive numbers of rules. I didn't make my original post a poll, and the number of responses is small, so I'm not going to presume that the 4-1 sense of sympathy with my suggestion calls for any conclusions. Those of you who post graphics not related to the Nisu...

Animated Graphics in Forum Posts

Maybe I am sui generis in this comment, but may I ask that those who post silly animated graphics please refrain unless they add something to the actual post? I am still stuck in the dark ages of dial-up access at home, and I get frustrated that a basically text forum like this should take so long t...

Accordance Bible Software (http://www.accordancebible.com) from Oak Tree Software is the best Bible software I have seen. I copy and paste vocalized text into NWE all the time. The Accordance text includes the accents -- however, I have had problems with some letters appearing in odd sizes and odd f...

Martin - When I looked at the file, neither in the first nor in the 2nd example were the numbers underlined.
