Odd. Type three periods and Nisus correctly replaces them with an ellipsis. Now, type a word or a letter and you need to type five periods to get an ellipsis and... two periods. :shock: Example: … … word.…. (Note: select the symbols above to see what they are.) In case someone doesn't understand, th...

Huh? To me, this seems a quite "normal" behavior. I mean - if you select "nothing" and copy it, of course "nothing" will be pasted. Heh. No, it's not a normal behavior, because this is inconsistent with how every single app behaves . The power of Mac OS X and its applications is consistency. As soo...

Problem with beta 8. With nothing selected, pressing Command-C (copy) resets previous pasteboard contents to null.

Example: Select some text and press Command-C, now paste it (Command-V), now with nothing selected press Command-C again, and finally press Command-V. Duh! Nothing gets pasted. :cry:

Looks great! Speaking of extra spaces: how about fixing the bug with extra spaces inserted when pasting text after em dashes and en dashes? That would be absolutely awesome!

Missed Beta 2; using Beta 3 now.

Bug: pasting inserts a carriage return!

Heh. Agreed. I hid the toolbar the moment I installed Nisus. ;)

This would seem like an odd idea for those who haven't used Macs for a long time, but do you think you could make two separate versions—a PPC and FAT? Or is it too much trouble? It would save the bandwidth for you and for us.

By the way, MacBook? I can't get used to that name. That's not the worst part of the name; the worst part is Pro . What exactly is pro about it? The lack of the FireWire 800 port? Or the switch from the AltiVec (a DSP technology used extensively in realtime audio/video/3D processing) to SSE (which ...

Get info on the application and uncheck the languages you don't want to use. Otherwise, the app will default to whichever language your system is set to.

This is one of the funniest features. Try typing the word typing with that feature on. Better yet: try typing see and a question mark.

Good luck. :lol:

At least consolidate the Opening Document and Typsetting progress bars into one progress bar that can say specifically what's happening... Heh. I'd rather have a written explanation somewhere in the documentation or on this forum. Seriously, I can guess what's happening, but would like to hear a "w...

Would love to see Nisus open documents faster and/or without the various "Loading" and "Typesetting" progress bars. One progress bar is fine. I mean, I don't care what it's doing specifically, just need an idea of how long it takes until my document is ready for editing. Consider the following: Wor...

Pasting text around em dash and en dash

NWE incorrectly adds spaces when you paste text before or after an em dash or an en dash. Examples: em dash text— pasted text pasted text —text en dash text– pasted text pasted text –text NWE pastes text correctly before and after a hyphen. Example: text-pasted text pasted text-text Note: The above ...

It depends. I get paid by the character (by the page, to be exact, and a page is 1,800 characters including spaces, not returns).
