Nisus New confusion

Post by ncdobson »

I selected a recent doc as my Nisus New file in the expectation that only its attributes would be present when I open a new document. But now when I open a new doc not only the desired attributes, but also all of the text from the paradigm document are present. Have I misunderstood the idea of using an actual document as the template? or just done something wrong in setting it as my New file?

TIA,

Nick Dobson

I don't believe you did anything wrong. I think this is the intended behavior. Just open the template, delete the existing content and save it.

This would be desired behaviour if, for example, you primarily write TPS reports in Nisus, and you want your default new document to already have a coversheet on it, perhaps with all of your bosses' names written in loopy fonts.

I made my custom new doc template have all my styles and defaults set, then I use an assortment of other templates for documents where I want content (such as titles, page numberings, sections, biblios, etc.) to already be present.

*ahem* An interface for working with templates would be sweet. *cough*

Making sure you deselect the "open as new file" box
