Tip: letter case conversions

We have a new blog post about letter case conversions in Nisus Writer. It explains the difference between converting underlying characters and displaying text differently on screen. Nisus Writer has two groups of menu commands for this under Edit > Transform Text and Format > Letter Case respectivel...

Re: Opening files with the extension:'docx'

I'm glad you were able to get an RTF version of the file. Using RTF is always the best way ensure fidelity when exchanging files between Nisus Writer and Microsoft Word. Support for RTF is excellent in Nisus and Word.

Re: Merging documents

Philip's example shows the problem clearly. But there are potential situations that are much messier, even with simple text. At least with Philip's two editors the changes do not overlap and you can present both edits at once. But consider: Original: The apples was rotten. Editor A: The [apple] was ...

Re: Adding Fonts to Favorite Fonts Menu in NWP

I'm glad you got it all sorted out Ray. Any instructions to use Apple's Font Book application to manage your favorite fonts may no longer be valid. I don't even see that category/collection listed in Font Book any more, at least on my Mac– very strange! I don't know why Apple would remove that, sinc...

Re: Opening files with the extension:'docx'

You can indeed open DOCX files using Nisus Writer. If you're having trouble doing that via the Finder, please use the menu File > Open from within Nisus Writer to select the file with the .docx extension. Nisus Writer will import the document.

Re: Merging documents

I'm afraid there isn't any way to do that, sorry. A custom macro might be able to accomplish some of what you propose. Merging and combining comments applied to different versions of the same document might be relatively easy, but anything that needs to cope with potentially conflicting tracked chan...

Re: footnote numbering problems

At the end of a quote, I "insert footnote" which then places an normal Arabic numeral, ie. 1. Then at the end of the page I place the source information for the quote. All good up to this point. However, when I save, close and reopen the document all the footnotes now have additional numbers or tag...

Re: Calculator in Mojave

I don't use the Calculator very much on macOS or iOS, but it's never a great sign when they can't such a simple app working correctly. Do you remember the iOS calculator bug where quickly entering 1 + 2 + 3 gave the wrong result because of new animations? Yikes!

Re: Import from Microsoft Word to Nisus Writer Pro

The first and best recommendation is to have Word save its document as Rich Text Format (aka RTF). Support for RTF is excellent in both Microsoft Word and Nisus Writer; RTF will result in the best fidelity when exchanging files between Word and Nisus . If you can't use RTF then Nisus Writer will imp...

Re: Tip: how to keep adjacent text together on the same line

The attached file shows the joiner with a clearly non-zero width. In fact, by inserting or deleting characters in a subsequent word in that line, you can see the joiner width expanding or contracting before your very eyes! That's interesting Adrian. Thank you for the example file that showcases the...

Re: New Mac - Older Version Won't Open

The problem is that your older version of Express is not compatible with macOS 10.15 Catalina. Only Express version 4 is compatible with Catalina. If you're having trouble with the Express installer, try the "zip archive" from the Nisus Writer Express download page . Please let us know if you contin...

Re: Tip: how to keep adjacent text together on the same line

It’s not actually zero width, as Align Justify will (usually) demonstrate. In a quick test it seems to me that the zero-width joiner does not affect how full justification spaces the line: justify.png In the above screenshot the zero-width joiner is again after the slash and before the "i" in "if",...

Tip: how to keep adjacent text together on the same line

Here's a quick tip from our recent blog post on how to keep text together using a zero-width joiner character . You can insert the joiner between two characters to ensure those neighboring characters appear on the same line. This is useful in situations like this: https://nisus.com/blogs/wp-content/...

Re: preferences gone

why you would want to "Display as Capitalized" I don't know, but presumably the good Nisus people gave us this for a reason.) You're probably right that using the "Transform Text" commands is generally more desirable, since that converts the underlying characters. However there are indeed situation...

Re: Adding furigana

GaubertKuni and credneb are correct: Nisus Writer Pro does not have support for furigana– sorry!

However, regarding this point:

It also does not have a vertical writing feature.
Nisus Writer Pro version 3 does support vertical text layout/orientation inside table cells and floating text boxes.
