Polish & Manage Documents

This part of your Nisus Writer Express documentation contains information that helps you manage and fine tune documents. It also gives you some ideas on how to use Nisus Writer Express effectively.

While you are in the process of writing, and especially once you have written a complete draft of your document you will probably want to take a closer look at different portions of it. The various ways to do this are highlighted in “View and Work in Documents” and “Move Around in Your Documents”. “Proof Documents” deals with checking your spelling. “Find and Replace Text and Formatting” explains the details of Nisus Writer Express’s unmatched find/replace tools. “Work with Multiple Documents” shows you how to keep track of open Nisus Writer Express documents. In addition you see how Nisus Writer Express handles working with multiple windows (and multiple monitors) as well as automatically merging the contents of one document with another. When you are satisfied with the contents and appearance of your document, “Print Documents” explains how to transfer what you have written from electronic form to paper.
