Re: Language setting

This has been a topic of much discussion. The first thing I would suggest you check is the language setting in the system. You should have the Mac OS language set (via the international pane of systems preferences) to British English, and British English should be the first language in the list. For...

Re: Hebrew letters and numbers

Just since these posts were first made, I've been experiencing this problem regularly. I have found an alternative solution that has been working very well for me. I've outlined it below. After typing some Hebrew text in a mixed language document: 1. Return the language selection to English 2. Via t...

Re: Different color for Hebrew letter and vowel (nikkud)

Thanks for the replies. I was sure I must have missed some option, but it appears we shall have to wait for this to be addressed. So, Martin et al, it's an official request. We definitely need to be able to color vowels and letters separately.

Thanks!

Re: Formatting(Layout): delete(eliminate) " return in the line "

I'm not sure how to strip the returns within the copy & paste process, but it would be possible to find and replace them after the paste. Using the powerfind expression "\n" for the return and then using a space in the replace with box you can remove each of the unnecessary returns. (These special c...

Different color for Hebrew letter and vowel (nikkud)

For pedagogical reasons, I'd like to occasionally be able to color a vowel separately from it's associated consonant in Hebrew. Using a Unicode font such as New Peninim, I cannot color them separately. Any ideas how to accomplish this?

Any help would be appreciated!

Re: Hebrew letters and numbers

I looked at this problem and reported it before back under NWE and found that it also occurs in Text Edit which would indicate that it is in Apple's text engine. The solution many of us have used is to insert a extra character and change the character color to white in order to allow printed texts t...

Re: Directionality Markers show in print

I cannot reproduce this occurrence. Although I do not normally insert the directionality markers (I use keyboard shortcuts to move back and forth between Eng. and Heb.) I tried it just now and could not produce the anomaly you describe. Have you tried switching via Format > Language or the Language ...

Re: Misformed Hebrew Shin and Sin

I tried this on Leopard and could not reproduce the error. I have seen this kind of problem before but usually with the presence of an accent over the letter.

Re: Does not save spelling option for English (US)

I was not able to replicate this with NWP 1.1. NWP maintained the preference for spelling (whether on or off) in several documents. If you are wanting this behavior in a new document the setting would need to be done in the New File settings (under Preferences in the NWP menu.

Thanks for the suggestions; they've helped me create a better workflow, but I do hope that a complete feature set for the contextual menu will be implemented in a future update.

More Options for contextual paste menu

When I right click to paste an item into a document, I'd like to have all the paste options available, especially paste text only. I know that it's available via a key command, but it seems to make sense to have both of the main paste commands and not just the one available. A menu flow like the mai...

From the User's Guide:

"▶ Click the heading’s text in the Navigator, Nisus Writer Pro displays that

Searching for 'Table of Contents' in the User's Guide will show more about how to use it and how it links with the Navigator.

The Copy Table Text command will work across multiple tables. I even tried it on multiple tables separated by chunks of text. I used the non-contiguous selection feature (which I love in NWP) and then when all of the tables were highlighted, the Copy Table Text command worked exactly as it had on a ...

I believe that you can do what you'd like to accomplish by using the Copy Table Text command under the Table menu. When you paste after this copy you will get just the text.
