    Since moving to a MacBook Pro 16″ and updating to Big Sur I have been repeatedly getting this error msg when opening documents in Nisus Pro 3.2, and opening documents has become extremely slow. How can I correct it?

    Your settings could not be loaded. Your settings could not be saved.
    The following settings are affected:
    • toolbar – custom items
    • touch bar – custom items

    Errors:
    • There was an error accessing your synchronized settings. Folder location:
    ~/Dropbox/Family History/Nisus Writer Settings

    Underlying error:
    Bookmark data previously captured for a file is invalid.
    File path: ~/Dropbox/Family History/Nisus Writer Settings

    @Bill
    I’m sorry you’re having trouble. There are two unrelated issues going on:

    1. Nisus Writer on Big Sur has some problems with sluggish behavior and excessive RAM usage. We just fixed this in the latest software update (version 3.2.1), which is available now.

    2. To fix your settings you’ll need to restore Nisus Writer’s access to the desired folder. Please open your General preferences, look for the setting “synchronized settings location”, and choose the appropriate folder. Even if you just reselect the current folder, that will have macOS grant access to it.
