Macworld loves us?

February 7th, 2005 · 1 Comment

The latest issue of Macworld has a review of Nisus Writer Express. (sorry, not online yet.) We got four mice, which is excellent! (And a great improvement from our last review.) They dinged us for having no bullets and numbering and little right to left support. We are currently working on both of these features […]

Nisus Writer and Pages

February 1st, 2005 · 4 Comments

Some people have asked about my reaction to Pages. So here it is: Pages is a simple to use application for creating great looking layouts, but it doesn’t have much in the way of actual writing tools. If you are a serious writer, you need something more focused on writing like Nisus Writer. In fact, […]

Coming Attractions

December 8th, 2004 · 10 Comments

Well, 2.1.1 is just about ready to go out the door. It turns out that when we released 2.1 is contained a timing bug that none of our beta testers (or us) caught, but many of our other users did, unfortunately. It has taken us some time to trace down this problem but we got […]

November 12th, 2004 · No Comments

MacGeneration was the first to cover our French localization. A highlight: “With this French localizations, French-speaking users can finally envision putting Word in the cupboard.” (My own translation/paraphrase). Phillippe mentioned the release on his blog of course.

Le blog de NisusWriter

October 30th, 2004 · 5 Comments

In preparation for the new French localization of Nisus Writer Express, I thought I would point out Le blog de NisusWriter, which is a blog all about writing in French using Nisus (it is itself in French). I hope Phillippe gets a lot more traffic when NWE2.1 comes out.

MacLife Review

October 15th, 2004 · No Comments

I forgot to mention, a user tells us that we were reviewed in a German mag called MacLife. They gave us 5 stars out of 6. Pros: flexible user interface, good macro functionality, language sensitive spell checking. Cons: weak Word import (especially concerning tables and styles). The review is not online right now, but I […]

Typing speed is now even better. We eliminated a few extra time wasters to keep it responsive even in very large documents.

Planning 1

October 5th, 2004 · 34 Comments

Up until now, we have focused on adding “basic” word processing features and a few of the features that were unique to Nisus Writer Classic. We have added them mostly in the order of popularity: the more commonly requested features get added first. In the coming year, our strategy for adding features is going to […]

Lowendmac had some good things to say about us: The best word processor on the Mac, bar none. …Nisus is a great word processor, and now that it has footnote and endnote capabilities again, it’s the pick of the crop.

Recently Ori Redler, who makes a competing product compared his product to ours for speed. One of his tests was: B. Scrolling speed: I’ve tested this by pressing the Page Down button for a minute to see to what page I get and how many key presses are remembered. NWE: got to page 27, remembered […]
