In Nisus Writer 5.1.3, my footnotes got all screwed up, and the numbering went kaflooey. What happened?
There is a footnote bug in version 5.1.3 of Nisus Writer. In the footnote window, the user is allowed to delete across footnotes. This had never been allowed before, and can make the automatic numbering system go nuts when this happens, because it thinks the two footnotes have merged, while there are still two references. As long as you try not to delete across footnotes, everything should be fine. The best solution is to upgrade to Version 6.0 where the bug has been fixed.
My document contains endnotes, but it also has a bibliography, which needs to come after the endnotes. How can I do this without creating two separate files?
It's simple: put your entire bibliography into your last endnote. In other words: create your bibliography as usual, at the end of your document. Select the entire bibliography, and choose Cut from the Edit Menu. Now go to the end of your document and choose Footnote/Endnote from the Insert Menu (depending on the style you're using, you may need to insert a page break first). Choose Paste from the Edit menu to put your bibliography into the endnote. Now close the footnote/endnote window, and find the footnote reference number in your document. Select it and apply the style Invisible to it.
Presto--bibliography after endnotes.
How do I create first page headers in Nisus Writer?
Basically, there is a 'default' header and footer for every document that starts on page one. To make it distinct, just start new headers and footers as of the next page. The new ones will override for the rest of the document until the next type of header and footer is inserted.
