Re: download questions

Thank you Martin & mrennie... mrennie instructed: "you simply need to drag the application from the disk image into your Applications folder, and the Finder will ask you whether you want to replace the older file. Choose Yes, and the old application will be overwritten by the new one." However, in h...

download questions

I'm using version 2.7 & want to download the newest version of nwe. Is this a seamless procedure? Does the new version just write over the old one or do I have to delete the old one first? Will my docs make the transition safely? What's the difference between disk image (47MB) and mirror? Which one ...

Candace, I'm glad you mentioned the problem with the closing quote mark...happens quite regularly...it's hard to see on the monitor & annoying to have to go over printed pages to correct. Hope this bug is fixed on the next incarnation!

Thanks, Martin...I just need plain vanilla renumbering for the times I've cut or added text in the on-screen doc. I want to conform the doc page numbering to the printed out manuscript page numbering. Being able to renumber helps avoid having to reprint the entire (350 page) doc over & over just to ...

Hi Craig...Clever! But then all the preceding pages are off & since I am constantly working back & forth on the doc it would get awfully cumbersome.

...Does the "section break" actually print? Or is it like "page break" and invisible in the print out?

Thanks again for all your input!

I've tried this on a test doc &, actually, this seems to work. I find, tho, that I have to insert the section break on the page *before* I want the change in numeration to appear. Does this seem correct to you? This renumbering issue arises when I edit the doc and either cut or add text. Rather than...

Thanks, Craig. I'll rephrase the question. The 350 pages are all in one doc & I do have auto numbering in the headers. So the question boils down to: how to change page 123 to 125 (for example) and have the doc automatically renumber from that point?

resetting/changing page numbers

In the course of editing a long (350 pages) document, I have added (or subtracted) pages at various stages throughout. I need to change the page numbering...for example, change 127 to 129 & have the doc renumber in sequence from there. The help refers to "sections" and restarting from page 1. I don'...

Hi Craig: Fortunately 99.6% of the file was fine. I lost an afternoon's work and was able to reconstruct it by the next afternoon. I still don't know what happened (probably never will) but will search .pl & .nwm out of curiosity...Thanks again for all your help!

Craig, I'm wow-ed! You've done it. I deleted my existing "ny", created a new "ny" to expand to New York City. Then I hit the space bar twice and, lo & behold, it worked. Of course I had one extra space. So I tried again, this time entering only one space & THAT also worked. I've added a few more tes...

Hi Craig...Indeed my additions do appear alphabetically when I scroll down. The problem is that when I type "ny" nothing happens. ie: ny does not autocomplete to New York City... I've tried using"ny" followed by a space AND "ny" not followed by a space...makes no difference. BTW, the quick fixes sup...

Hi...The correct language is selected & the other changes to preferences have worked fine (I have made very few). I've emailed nisus support & hope they'll have the solution. If you have any other ideas, PLMK. I appreciate your help.

thanks...

the problem I ran into with Quickfix is that my addition (I could only make one at a time or else my previous entry would immediately disappear) vanished as soon as I left the screen. How do I get my entries to "stick"? Is there a save button I'm missing?
