After the first page of the document, insert a section break beginning on the next page. You can then adjust the margins on the first page/first section, and it will not affect the margins on the subsequent pages/sections.

Simple - Go to the style sheet (click on the rightmost of the three view icons at the upper left hand corner of the page), highlight the style you want to delete, and hit 'delete.' Presto! It's gone! If you open Nisus Preferences, New Document, Advanced options, Edit file, you can add or delete styl...

How does one use the Attribute dropper without installing it on the toolbar? It is the same as "Paste text only" and "Remove Attributes and Styles?"

David - Welcome to NWE! I found the Keyboard viewer (look under the flag menu at the top of the screen) to be of help in learning where all the letters and vowels are. For a Holem, use Option-O. Option-W is a dotted Shin, Option-S is a dotted Sin, but Shift-W should also have given a normal dotted s...

Look at your general preferences again. Underneath the section "on activation" where you can specify what you want to happen when you launch NWE, there are three more check boxes labeled "Document Options." My guess is that you need to uncheck the third one, 'Reopen previously opened documents on la...

wysiwyg fonts in 2.6

I seem to remember that in classic Nisus, the wysiwyg feature could be toggled with the option or command key. Can this happen in Express? I don't like the feature on all the time because it is difficult to read the name of the font (especially in Hebrew fonts), but it would be nice to be able to qu...

Hebrew fonts

Try New Peninim MT or Ra'ananah. I don't really understand the difference between various types of fonts, but some work better with others with the Macintosh unicode system. Also, make sure you have the language set to Hebrew.

Changing margins

I have a 17 page document with 21 sections -- after getting this far, I realize that I set the top and bottom margins too wide. When I change the margins at the top, it only affects the first page. When I change the margins on the second page, only that page is affected. Do I need to go into each se...

Templates in 2.6b4 open as regular files

Was the box: "open as new file" checked when you open the file. To clarify, my issue is that when I open a template file from the document manager, it opens with the file name rather than as "untitled," and when I modify it and save it, it overwrites the original. When I open the file from the find...

opening templates

It seems that when I open a template file in 2.6b4, modify it and save it, it overwrites the template. That is, rather than opening a template as an "untitled" file, it opens the template itself as a document. I messed up two of my stationary/letterhead templates before I noticed the problem!

de-selecting non-contiguous text

If I select non-contiguous text by holding down the apple key and want to de-select part of what I selected, I cannot. Double-clicking the selected word while holding down the apple key does not work. Is there a way around this?

Here's the situation -- I cut something from a web site which contains a hyperlink -- I paste it into my Nisus document, and the hyperlink is preserved -- How do I change the text to regular text, un-hyperlinked?
