Thanks so much. That worked perfectly. The document was not a new one, but one I had opened that had originally been created in Word.

List Menu Missing Items

I just installed NWE on a new machine (downloaded fresh from the web). Working on a document, the list menu is missing items. Currently, only Number List 1 shows as an option. It appears that other lists are in the paragraph styles, not in the list styles. Question #1: Why? Question #2: How can I fi...

Re: Character Attribute Problem

Yes. The document I sent had a table at the top. By way of a feature request, the only reason I had a table was to be able to put a border around a text section at the head of the document. It's not a huge need, but in the future, being able to add borders to text segments would be great. (Or if I m...

Character Attribute problem

In Beta 4 a document I just completed shows all text bold! It was originally a mixture with bold headlines and plain text in the body. I've changed, saved, etc and it always reverts to bold when reopened. I tried opening with an older beta and it still happens.

Help!

Numbered Lists

I love having lists! But, the spacing between the number and the text is too large. I hope that is an editable feature, but I haven't found a way of changing it so far.

How can that spacing be changed?

I downloaded the latest alpha version and it appears the problem is not present there. (Let's hope it stays that way!) I was able to alter the ruler settings in the style and they carried through on multiple pages and w/ different configurations of notes. This was my first peek at the alpha and it l...

Craig, I did look at that and think I've removed any. At the bottom of the page, I selected the footnotes in question and there is not a ruler showing that would allow me to remove locally inserted ruler changes. I tried applying ruler changes manually and the ruler showed up and allowed me to remov...

From the previous posts, it looks like this is an old issue, but it's still occuring in the latest version (2.1.3). 1. The footnote style does not show in the style palette. 2. Altering the footnote style does not alter the style of the footnote text consistently. I can get the character attributes ...

If all that's needed is a blank first page with subsequent pages showing the right page number (i.e. not including the title page): It might be simpler to select the different first page header and footer option in the sections palette and set the starting number for pages at 0. Then when the page n...

Thanks so much! Part of what attracted me to NWX was the flexibility to customize and the interactive support! Looks like I'll be needing a license for this demo :D

Paragraph styles and spacing

I'm running the demo to see if NWX will work for me. On the whole it has been great, but I've encountered an oddity in doing something very simple -- writing a business letter. When I go to enter my address and the address of the recipient, the default spacing after each line is 6pt. I can change it...
