Footnotes coming over from Word
Posted: 2005-09-05 06:38:08
I have an outline that I wrote in Word and it has many footnotes. I have tried to open in NWX 2.5 rc2 and some of the footnotes appear in the text and a blank note at the bottom. I then tried opening the doc in NeoOffice and saving it as a .rtf doc. Well the note now at least appear at the bottom of the page, but now if I add a new note it does not match the indending etc of the exisiting notes even though when I put the curser in the notes and click on the tabs the dialog box gives the same settings for both notes!
I really like NWX but I have tons of outlines for students in Word and if they cannot be easily edited in NWX I am really out of luck in using NWX.

Ack. On a lark, I opened up an old Word document of mine. Footnotes are constantly renumbered on each page (all beginning with 1), there's an indent on every block quotation, and if I have more than one footnote on a page, all notes after the first are indented (like a weird hanging indent).

Yeah, this makes using Nisus as my main processor much harder because I simply do not have the time to reedit every footnote in an outline when I want to reuse 95 percent of it.

Well, the upside is that the two documents I have written entirely in NWE work great!
Please, guys, track down these footnote bugs before you release 2.5

Using fc1, I opened up a Word file that had a hyperlink in it, and I wanted to keep the text of it, but make it into a regular piece of text -- in other words, delete the hyperlink part of it (if this makes sense). Is this possible?

in Express 2.5 fc2 the following line:
save window 1 as "HTML" in thefile
Will properly save the document in html format but will always result in an error "Apple Event timed out" and the script stops.
System is 10.4.2

Just thought I ought to tell you all about how pleased I am with the new releases. This program a joy to use. It looks good, works well and does what I need and just about everything I want, besides full screen
Good job everyone! The columns function and save so much better (reliably) with this version. I now do alll my classes on it. Keep it up.

Am I the only one that sees Nisus slowing down as my document gets larger? At two pages with one table and one numbered list (going up to eleven) NWE is using 80% cpu just to keep up with my typing. I have a 1GHZ mac G4 with 1GB memory. Odd and annoying.

Uh oh. Why do the fc3 release notes say, "Removed WordPerfect from list of Save formats?" Are you dropping WordPerfect compatibility?

No, but we never were able to write WordPerfect documents. It was a mistake for the option to appear at all. But don't worry, we will still be able to read WordPerfect documents.

That's the more important side of the equation for me.
