Re: File icons changed

Your Launch Services database needs to be rebuilt. Prior to OS X, rebuilding the Desktop fixed this kind of thing. That's not around anymore, so you need to rebuild your Launch Services database. That can be done via terminal..... or it's easier to download a little utility called Oynx, located here...

Re: Line numbers and tables.

Thanks for all the research. So, to sum up: Line numbers will apply to one row of a table. If you have multiple lines of text inside a cell, it won't number them. So that is not good, actually. See, I'm building a caption for a legal pleading. It's laid out with a two column, one row table, with mul...

Line numbers and tables.

So I turned on line numbering (the automatic numbers that go down the left column) and set it to reset each page; this is a legal pleading. Imagine my surprise to see that the table I had inserted did not have line numbers! Instead, the table was considered as one line. Exactly how do I have line nu...

Re: Update for High Sierra?

I'm sure Nisus is testing it out. However, from my research of High Sierra, while it has a lot of under the hood changes, not many appear likely to affect Nisus any. Past history would indicate that about 2 months after High Sierra's release, we'll get a Nisus update that fixes any major issues that...

Re: Book length doc with lots of graphics -- recommendations

So I don't have experience with truly long documents, but I do have experience with documents loaded down with embedded full page PDF images. Nisus handles those fine. RTF is a robust document format, and a properly formatted RTF document has no issues with what you are describing. On your 16 Gig RA...

Re: Delete empty page (no text field)

A couple of possibilities: if a graphic is involved, that very frequently can cause extra page insertions as text tries to flow or the pagination algorithm tries to place it and fails, so it moves it and accompanying text to the next page. Second, and the manual talks about this: if you have a heade...

Re: How to Create a Style for Unique Bullet Lists

So here's the thing: the bullet field does not allow you to insert things directly (the special characters menu from the Insert Menu is greyed out, for instance) but you can paste a character or two into the bullet field. So to insert whatever you want (I used the "filled diamond" from the Misc sect...

Re: images disappearing

a PICT image? Can't believe I missed that. Yes, PICT is fairly well unsupported after Mac OS 10.6 or Snow Leopard. After a certain point I'm pretty sure the OS itself refuses to handle PICT at all; and only a few graphics apps retain support. Since Nisus image support is partially provided by the OS...

Re: images disappearing

Ah yes. That set of text you have is what Nisus calls the "image description". Why it exists, I don't know; as there seems to be no way to edit it. That shows up with a right click on the image, or if you hover over the box in some scenarios. But if you hover over the image in a different spot, it m...

Re: images disappearing

What is most likely to have happened is that when you imported the images, for whatever reason you had "save a copy in the document" off and only a "link to image" checked (if that). My guess is that the alias got broke somehow in the move/upgrade and Nisus cannot find the image. I ran a test where ...

Re: NWP and iOS: About Back&Forth-ing

I have a question though about Hamid's answer and regarding the other RTF app stripping styles. As I understand RTF, it's built to use different applications and each application shouldn't be stripping out tags it doesn't understand--like, say, Nisus styles. And stylesheets are a core feature of RTF...

Re: Paste pdf from clipboard into a Nisus document

Adryan's results suggest that you cannot copy say, page 4 of a PDF from Preview and insert that into a Nisus document. I've found that it is tricky, but in fact it can be done. So here's what I've found in my attempts to copy multiple pages of a PDF document into a Nisus one. In Preview, what you ge...

Re: Paste pdf from clipboard into a Nisus document

As a note here, I frequently have to copy and paste pages from PDF's into my document (rather laboriously, as you cannot copy more than one page at a time). So (usually using Preview here) I sometimes just get a link as well, instead of the PDF page. I've found that Nisus pastes just a "link to this...

Re: Export to RTF issues

Ah, this is one of those rare cases where file format is important. RTF does not save images. RTFD, however, does. You cannot use the File|Export command to save as RTFD, but if you just Save As and save it as a RTFD document, you can send that document (it's actually a directory) and all your image...
