Re: BUG? Copying Hyperlink from Nisus Writer Pro to Apple Ma

This is weird. I opened the document, and tried pasting two links other than the one I first tried. They both worked. Then I tried again the one that I had tried before, and it did not work. I took screen shots, but they are too big to upload here (I am hitting a 100-kByte limit), so I clipped them ...

BUG? Copying Hyperlink from Nisus Writer Pro to Apple Mail

I inserted hyperlinks in a few places in an RTF document. Now I am trying to copy those hyperlinks and insert them into Apple Mail, and I can't get it to work. I read the instructions and found that clicking on the link with CONTROL down did produce a pop-up menu with an option to copy link. But wha...

Re: Possible bug in 2.0.5 with font sizes

As a user, the change in how font sizes behaved when I try to change them with the arrows felt like a bug. I had been using that and did not immediately notice the change in behavior until it became problematic. It isn't intuitive - at least to me - to have the displayed number completely detached f...

Re: BUG in NWP 2.0.3 - page preview in print dialog box is w

It's not quite that simple in my tests. Viewing files with headers and footers, the scaling problem does not show up with magnification of 100%, but does appear with other magnifications, both larger than smaller. The display is anchored on the lower left corner, it's clipped on top and right if it'...

Re: BUG in NWP 2.0.3 - page preview in print dialog box is w

I did a bit more detective work and think I found why some people are seeing the thumbnails correctly and others aren't. I don't have any graphics in any of the Nisus RTF files I checked, but I have paginated some and have not paginated others. Those that I have inserted headers and footers on using...

BUG in NWP 2.0.3 - page preview in print dialog box is wrong

I downloaded 2.0.3 earlier today, and just tried to print to my Brother HL-2140 printer. The preview showed in the print dialog box (attached) immediately caught my eye. It shows the page to be printed cropped off on the top and right, but the page does not show that way in Page View. Fortunately, i...

Bottom of Save As box off screen on laptop - workaround

When I do a "Save As" NWE displays a large box showing possible locations. That works fine on my desktop running OSX 10.4.11 on a display with a 1680x1050 pixel display. However, when I run NWE on my MacBook running 10.5.6 on a display with 1280x800 resolution, the bottom part of the dialog box -- i...

Re: missing custom document icons with NWE 3.3.1

I just checked the document icon, and using NWE on a PowerPC mac running 10.4.11 I don't see any signs of type on the large icons. Just a white page with a folded over corner and some shading

Re: missing custom document icons with NWE 3.3.1

Coming in here late, but all the NWE express RTF documents in my files also lost their custom icons and are now blank, and I'm running OS/X 10.4.11 (Tiger). The custom icons vanished with the 3.3.1 upgrade. As others report, clicking on the links opens them. Get Info says they should be opened by NW...

Re: spell check not working the same after SL upgrade

I have the final release, and it's not working the same as it was running on Leopard 10.4.11. When I run a spellcheck and it finds an error with more than one suggested spelling, it doesn't automatically pick the top of the list as a default spelling. Instead, I have to use the arrow key to scroll d...

Re: Odd spell-check behavior with hyphenated words

Just for the record, I upgraded to 3.2 soon after it came out, and the problem is still present. I noted it today while trying to spell-check "paleo-biologlist". When the cursor was at the hyphen, asking for a correction automatically converted "paleo" to "pale" and ignored the misspelling of biolog...

Re: Spotlight on OS 10.4.11 won't index NWE RTF files

[quote="dshan"]It does sound like Spotlight hasn't finished indexing your internal HD. Yes, Spotlight starts returning results as soon as it finds some matches, so the list will change as it finds more. Spotlight was rather rough round the edges in 10.4, I suggest you upgrade to 10.5 where it's cons...

Re: Spotlight on OS 10.4.11 won't index NWE RTF files

Spotlight now appears to be indexing some Nisus Express RTF files, but can't find words in all of them. I tried an obscure species name in one document, and it found two documents in backup files on an external hard disk, but not on my internal hard disk. On the other hand, it found the file on the ...

Spotlight on OS 10.4.11 won't index NWE RTF files

I recently upgraded to OS 10.4.11 in part to be able to use NWE 3.1, and have found Spotlight an extremely frustrating piece of software. One of the frustrations is that it doesn't seem to be able to index NWE RTF files at all. It picks up titles, but nothing inside the file. (I tested using an unus...

Re: Word documents. Grrr!

One problem with OpenOffice is that somehow they dropped support for PowerPC Macs when upgrading to version 3.0, so it's only available for Intel Macs in US English. (Why is a mystery, because there are PowerPC versions in a few other languages, such as Swedish, as I recall.) NeoOffice does work, an...
