Re: Nisus Writer Pro File blow out

Yes, saving the file as a .zrtf reduced the size to 1/5 of the original. Save As .pdf increased the file only marginally
Thank you.

Nisus Writer Pro File blow out

If I reduce it in Nisus to 1/8 page...

Re: Newsletter with Nisus

:) yes well the Newsletter worked very well, very fast and very clean. There is still much to learn about the programs capabilities. I have used Nisus since the original version, but had forgotten much and had not kept up to date with it.
Just thought I would add a postscript.

Newsletter with Nisus

Well it has not been easy. New pages is a worry so I set myself the task of creating our A5 booklet newsletter with Nisus. Well I have done it. It has taken me three weeks to do it. A very steep learning curve. Using a 'Canvas' to create the masthead, text box for the feature, 2 columns for the body...

Re: Working With Nisus and Pages

I had thought of converting to Word as the go between, but I did not realized that exporting the file would make it accessible to the new pages, even so without facing pages is pretty useless.
Thank you.

Re: What is Nisus doing when it is "typesetting text"?

Just my thoughts The original Nisus was a text editor and blindingly fast, this may be the foundation of the current one. That suggests the document is stored as text, when we open page view Nisus applies the formatting to the raw text. Depending on the size of the document and the complexity of the...

Re: Pagination for Saddle-Stitched Booklet

https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/21068/create-booklet I downloaded this and it seems to work okay in creating an A5 booklet printed on A4 paper. Margins may have to be adjusted on the source document. The old Nisus1 (pre system OS10) had this option. This is what originally attracted me to Nisus. W...

Re: Pagination for Saddle-Stitched Booklet

Cheapimpostor works very well for me. I use it several times a week and have done so for years. It is not free but has paid for itself many times over.
