Convert

Someone must have asked this -- but it would seem to me that it would not be THAT hard to write a conversion utility from NWC macros to NWP. With Perl, even arithmetical operations could be handled. Another point: it appears that the macro language for NWP is more developed than that for NWE, and th...

Documentation!

I gather that the macro language of NWP is still under development (e.g. you still can't do arithmetical operations -- have to use perl). It looks as if the language will eventually be as powerful as Nisus Classic, which would be wonderful. Meanwhile, I find the documentation missing. For example, t...

2 Views of same document

I'm trying to learn NWP (after using Nisus Classic for many years) and I can't find a way to see different parts of a long file at the same time. It does not seem possible to open a second copy of a document, and obviously split screens are not implemented (yet, I hope). Any suggestions? It seems I ...

Thanks

Thanks for the help, Hamid. Nobumi's droplet works very well (it sometimes chokes on many files NWP, but works perfectly with Express). The only thing that would make it more useful would be if it preserved the dates of the original files. NWP does a wonderful job of translating old Nisus files -- s...

Could use classic?

It struck me that I could write a macro Nisus Classic 6.5 to save files in RTF format, but unfortunately when I try to do that, I get the message "Couldn't load XTND." Does anyone know whether XTND will work in OS 9.2 running in OSX emulation? I have also written to Nisus support for help -- I seem ...

Convert many files

I have about 1000 files in Nisus classic and would like to convert them to Nisus Writer Pro. NWP does a wonderful job of reading them, but the only way I can see to convert them is to do it 1 by 1, manually adding the title. Maclinkplus is useless, as it does not transfer the font info properly. Is ...
