A Big Thanks To Martin ('Official Nisus Person')

Post by pbasswil » 2018-12-27 09:25:57

Hi there,

When I first adopted NWP 2, split pane/comparison editing was one missing feature I craved, and upon a forum search I found that other people wanted it too. I logged my own vote for the feature; but since Martin is reserved in his responses, I didn't sense much of a hope for it, anytime soon.

I've been hobbling along in NWP ver. 2 on an ancient MBP with old OS X, so I didn't notice when NWP 3 came out. I've just discovered that split pane is fully implemented! It's waiting for me, as soon as I invest in a newer system that takes a new OS X.

Through these forums, I'm sure Martin sees his users as a picky, complaining, and demanding bunch. I'll revert to being one of them, as soon as I've thanked Martin for what must have been one helluva lot of work to bring us NWP 3.

And lest we forget, NWP doesn't exactly have the highest profile, among Mac word processors. The masses aren't lining up to ditch Word or Pages and hand him money. He's not busy driving around in his Lamborghini while he should be developing! I'm betting that he's making a smaller hourly wage out of this program than most of us are. But it's his baby, and he's just delivered a beautiful new version – one that reflects his vision of an improved word processor for us.

Thank you Martin! Sorry for all our clamouring demands and indignant complaints – including my future ones. :^D!

You really are too kind! Thank you for your very thoughtful and appreciative message. It means a lot to hear such nice feedback about Nisus Writer :)

But on one point I must disagree:

Not so! We really do appreciate our users. They're nearly universally very nice, understanding, and helpful. As you said, we're a small indie outfit so we take care to spend time listening to our users as best we can.

Thanks again for your kind words! I'll look forward to your future feedback, constructive criticisms included 8)

Wow, are we really that nice a bunch? :^}

It's heartening to know you can shoulder the responsibility for such complex software, without adopting a skeptical attitude toward your user base. It illuminates your constructive & positive spirit!

I hope you're managing a little down time over the holidays to think of something else besides word processing. Maybe have a browse on the Lamborghini website. ;^>

Cheers,
