Re: "Typewriter Scrolling" Apple Script in here

Another vote for Typewriter Mode or Typewriter Scrolling. If as I do you write a lot, it's obvious that this should be an option. Consider: No one in the history of computing has ever placed the cursor to start typing at the bottom of the screen. NO ONE. Yet every word processor quickly takes and le...

Re: Why do you choose Nisus?

When I got my first computer in 1992 (a Mac IIci) my wife said to get Word Perfect because a friend used it and liked it. OK. Two years later I was in his studio and mentioned this to him. "But I've always used Microsoft Word." Word was 'the standard.' So I got a bootleg copy as a trial before switc...

Need TOC Macro for Journal/Diary

I don't know if this is possible. I want to be able to create a new document, with an entire year's dates pasted in, and then have a macro add them to the TOC as 365 separate entries, with hard returns between each day so when I make my entries, they don't extend the TOC date entry. I auto create a ...

Re: Why do you choose Nisus?

This is old, but I just got here, and I'm supposed to be doing something else.... so here's my two cents: When I got my first Macintosh computer in 1992 I ran over all the stuff I was buying with my wife, asked for her input. She said, "Peter uses Word Perfect, so let's get Word Perfect." She also w...

Nisus Writer Pro Redesign

As someone who spends a lot of time using Nisus Writer Pro, there are a lot of things I would love to see changed. Minor things like the Font Size button up and down. I've been using NisusWP for 20 years, I still miss the tiny tiny arrow, or I hit the wrong direction. The slider? I never use, it's t...
