Re: NWP 1.2 crashes HELP!

Thank you Mark, thank you Martin for your help!! It seems that I am still thinking in NW Classic ways. I did and I do write mostly in Courier 12 normal paragraph mode. I actually very seldom used any paragraph formatting. But I had and have to write text with many numbers in it, which was easily don...

Re: NWP 1.2 crashes HELP!

Sorry, Martin, I don't understand you (or it doesn't work like it should) When I change that Liststyle the way you've supposed, the list behaves the same way it does when I leave the checkbox unchecked. I choose COM-LZ and get a number 1. when hit the return-key I get automatically a 2. I don't want...

Re: NWP 1.2 crashes HELP!

Hello everybody and thanks for your help. To answer your questions: @Mark, who wrote: "The other thing to do in circumstances of this kind is to trash the preferences and restart the app, which will create a new set of preferences and may solve the problem." Will do that the next time. Meanwhile I'v...

NWP 1.2 crashes HELP!

Hello everybody! I'm writing in a rtf document, 16 pages long, with 50 column breaks (on the same side, because this is the only - ms-wordish - way to number a chapter) and NWP crashes while writing!

Does anyone know what might cause these crashes?

Best regards and thanks for helping me, Matze

Re: NOT numbering blank lines?

In old NW you could select paragraphs noncontigly and let NW number only those paragraphs. Can one do this with NWP?

Re: Desired NWP 1.3 features

I can't get used to this: when having replaced sth. via F/R by mistake I want to undo this replacement NOT the string I wrote in the F/R window - the way it used to be in old NW.
And I would love it, when a found pattern is NOT covered by the F/R-window.

Best regards, Matze

Desired NWP 1.3 features

NWP becomes better and better and still I am missing some features NW had in good old crashing OS9 times. - New Number Chapter, - Section, wherever you want to have it, just by hitting a function-character-combo, no new section needed. Current Number AND Define Numbers! Where you could tell allmight...

Re: Nisus Writer 1.2 release

Yes you can ... macroize your Find/Replace string now!

THANK YOU Nisus for this feature and THANK YOU USA for this president!

Re: Find/Replace multiple items

It was easier even: In Nisus Writer Classic you just macroized your Find/Replace String with a "macroize" button in the lower left corner of the F/R Window.
By the way: will Nisus Writer Pro have such a feature some day?

chapter numbers

Hi all, i have made the switch from a PB G4 to a Macbook. No more Classic, no more Nisus Writer 6.5. Bought NWP instead. And I am missing NWC even before I have written anything. I wanted to start with a chapternumber. COM-1 has been the shortcut, which placed a "1." on to the page in NWC. Then I co...

Yes, this works, though it's a bit sluggish. I have a question though: why does Nisus make macros so tough? Most word processors give you the option to record keystrokes and create macros that way. I know writing them by hand gives you more complexity, but why not also let newbies like myself with ...

WordPerfect 6 is the only other one I've tried. (And that only because it was part of the initial configuration). SheepShaver can be a real bear to get running at first. But at this point, Nisus Writer is the only Classic application I still need. I'm hoping that Nisus Writer Pro can finish that, b...

NWPro-Macros compared to NW Classic Macros

Hello there,

I don't use NWP, only NWE and still NWC.
Can someone please give a short statement on how well NWPs macro-feature is working - compared to the one in NW 6.5?

Will I miss a lot (macrowise), when I work with NWP?

Best, Matze
