Re: In NW 3.0.2 callout rounded speech box becomes text box after save & quit

This indeed appears to be a new bug introduced by version 3.0.2. I'm sorry for the trouble. We'll investigate and hopefully have a fix ready for the next software update. In the meantime I don't think there's a good way to workaround the problem, aside from reverting to the prior app version. If you...

Re: Variable substitution

Depending on what you're doing, you might also check out custom document properties, which can act like variables. They are simpler than macros (though of course are also more limited). You can view and edit custom properties using the menu File > Properties . Once you've established some properties...

Re: Localizations

Hello Stefan: I'm sorry that non-English localizations haven't been restored to Nisus Writer version 3 yet. I know this is a critical issue for some of our users and it's definitely something we plan to fix. It certainly won't take us years. I'd estimate that you can expect to see localizations rest...

Re: Date Format Not Obeyed

Thanks for letting us know Al, this is indeed a bug. Nisus Writer isn't picking up the system date & time formats correctly. We'll have to get this fixed for the next update, sorry about that! In the meantime, if you often need to insert custom date/time stamps, you might consider using a macro. Her...

Re: file icons aren't in Finder, but are in GetInfo

It sounds like you're saying that files saved by Nisus Writer lack a distinctive icon. You were probably expecting to see our app icon inside a standard document icon, which looks like this: docicon.png I assume your files are RTF files with the .rtf file extension, which means the custom Nisus docu...

Re: The file format is not recognized

We already replied to your earlier direct emails, but basically we believe your hard drive or file system may be corrupted. Please run Disk Utility as we suggested and see if it turns up any troubles. Hopefully that will fix your problem with this single file, though if the file is still damaged you...

Re: Annoying behavior in new version of Nisus Pro

If a formatting change is done (for instance, changing the font size or style in a paragraph) the counting begins again, preventing normal scrolling. This can get real annoying and prevents the normal flow of writing and editing. Could you look into this? Nisus Writer Pro 3.0.2 fixes this issue. Pa...

Re: NWP 3.0 and Erroneous Spellcheck

Nisus Writer Pro 3.0.2 works around this bug in Mojave, where words the system grammar checker thinks are improperly used are incorrectly flagged as spelling mistakes. We reported the bug to Apple, but we also found a workaround so Nisus Writer can identify these inappropriate markings and filter t...

Re: Really really strange behavior editing PowerFind Pro string

This problem with an incorrectly positioned/drawn selection caret in the find/replace panel should be fixed in Nisus Writer Pro 3.0.2 . At least the one particular bug we discovered is now fixed. Since we never had an exact set of instructions on how to reproduce the original bug, we can't say for c...

Re: Footnotes in ePub Export format

Nisus Writer Pro 3.0.2 should fix this bug. Links between a footnote or endnote reference and its text (and vice versa) should work correctly when exported to EPUB.

This new format excludes certain extended information from th...

Re: decimal tab problem, chosing character with which to align.

What's curious about this is that, having set the system preferences to the decimal separator as a comma, Nisus seems to be ambivalent about the whole thing. The decimal tab still sets to a period and not a comma, and in the character panel my font size is"12.0". But line spacing is "1,3 lin", and ...

Re: Copy disabled

NisusWriter, even when choosing "Paste Text Only," grabs the formatted (RTF?) clipboard rather than the plain text clipboard, and gave reasons why this was logical ... I wish there were a preference, or something, that would use let me use the plain text clipboard for pasting plain text Nisus Write...
