Mac App Store Update

April 23rd, 2015 · No Comments

Now that we have released Nisus Writer Pro 2.1.1 (NWP) we would like to update you on our efforts to add Pro 2.1.1 to the Mac App Store (MAS).

We tried very hard to add Nisus Writer Pro 2.1 and 2.1.1 into the MAS. Unfortunately, we are having technical problems with Apple’s developer tools. Currently we are unable to even submit application updates to Apple for review. However, we are working with Apple developer technical support to resolve these issues. Unfortunately we have no idea when NWP 2.1.1 will finally be available in the Mac App Store.

In the meantime, Nisus Writer Pro 2.1.1 will allow MAS customers to use version 2.1.1 by following these steps:

  1. Do not delete the MAS copy of NWP from your Mac. Leave it in its existing location (most likely the Applications folder).
  2. Download NWP version 2.1.1 (download the .zip version only).
  3. Unzip Pro 2.1.1 and leave it on your desktop. Do not put it in the same folder as the Mac App Store version or it will overwrite that version.
  4. Launch NWP version 2.1.1.
  5. Choose the menu Nisus Writer Pro > Licenses…
  6. Click the button “Enter License…”
  7. NWP will try to automatically detect and import your MAS receipt from the Applications folder.

If NWP does not automatically detect your MAS receipt, you will need to hold down the Command key when clicking the “Enter License” button in step #5. That will trigger NWP to guide you through the process. Once you’ve successfully imported your MAS receipt, you no longer need the copy of NWP obtained from the MAS.

Hopefully we will work through the problems with Apple and get Pro 2.1.1 into the MAS soon. Here’s hoping!
