One annoying bug not yet fixed: the extra leading space when pasting.

List Styles opened in Word

This is a delightful surprise: open an Express rtf document with numbered lists and bullets in Word and they are correctly numbered and bulleted!

List Styles

I am impressed with how refined way the list styles have been implemented. I like the option to have the numbering continue throughout the document— great for headings.

One small problem: keyboard shortcuts for list styles are not saved when closing a document.

Already my favorite

I have to say that 2.5 alpha 1 is already my favorite word processor. It works so much better than 2.1.1 for my (probably not demanding) work. The indentation bug is gone. I like what I see of the way lists work. I AM EXCITED BY THIS!

Qick Fix

I use Nisus exclusively for billing statements and court documents for my husband who is a process server. Names of defendants need to be in multiple places in a single document and I have always used drag-copy to save a few keyboard strokes as I work. In the old Nisus, I used the glossary feature ...

Thanks for the reply, Charles. They are in the same Applications folder. Another symptom: the “Languages” preference panel in NWE does not open (it does on the eMac where communication occurs).

Thesaurus and NWE not communicating

I have two computers. On my eMac, NWE and Nisus Thesaurus work together very well! On my older iMac, I can’t get NWE to interact (except through services). Both computers run on Panther. Is there some setting or preferene I'm not aware of?

Solution found

I discovered the solution in a Mac-Fixit forum. The problem is caused by a bug that can affect all cocoa apps. It is solved by turning off “Check Spelling As You Type.” You may also find it necessary to trash your application preferences.

Thank you for the reply, but I have done this and still no change. I had Cocoaspell 1.4 installed, the up-to-date version.

Cocoa Breakdown

I have a recurring problem that effects NWE and other Cocoa word processing apps. It seems to be based in system resources related to TextEdit. So in NWE, contextual menus no longer function. In other word processing apps applications that are cocoa based, problems are more severe: in TextEdit doubl...

I’m waiting for Menu Master at http://www.unsanity.com/haxies/menumaster/ to be updated for Panther. Then almost anything menu item in any application can be given the shortcut of choice once again!

They may after all

I have found that shortcuts do work and they are remembered but only if there are no conflicts with the key combinations that are chosen. NWE does not seem to inform you if there is a conflict. Plus the program will not accept certain key combinations (even without conflicts) but there is no warning...

I have seen this blue cosmetic remnant in several cocoa applications since the introduction of 10.3. My guess is that is an Apple problem, not a problem with NWE.
