Using fc1, I opened up a Word file that had a hyperlink in it, and I wanted to keep the text of it, but make it into a regular piece of text -- in other words, delete the hyperlink part of it (if this makes sense). Is this possible?

downloading Beta6

I have tried 4 times to download beta6 -- using Safari and Firefox, and have been unable to do so today. Is there a problem with the download server?

Re: switching / cycling through open windows

Most Mac programs let you switch windows using command-tilda, including old versions of Nisus. Since I often have multiple windows open, that is extremely helpful. But there seems to be no such functionality, as of NWX2.5b3. It really degrades the usefulness of the program to me ... but maybe there...

Re: Still on Hebrew punctuation in Nisus 2.5

Now it is possible to have all the text in the same fonts (like Pninim, Gutmman or others) but the vowels do not display properly (this doesn't happen in mellel and others). For istance: bet + dagesh + qamatz do not app...

It is possible to do mail merge using macros. If you look through the Nisus List archives: http://listserv.dartmouth.edu/archives/nisus.html for June 2003 you will find e-mails from David Linker explaining how to use his macro. I have been able to use the macro for simple mail merge tasks like crea...

Next NisusWriter Express Release

I recall reading something about a planned release of an update to 2.1.1 sometime in March -- any word from the Nisus people on when such an update will be available, and what kind of fixes/new features will be included?

You figure out why! :)

If you reproduced the bug, I for one would like to see a fix.

I found the same thing, having saved a file in the default .rtf in Nisus 2.1.1 and then opening it in MSWord2004 for Mac 11.1.

How do I take the perl macro text that hatchmo so kindly posted and turn it into a macro? I tried copying, opening a new macro document, pasting it, and saving as a perl macro. But when I tried running it, I got a couple errors. Did I do something wrong?
