Re: NWP and Bookend - Case issues

I'm sorry you're having trouble using Bookends and Nisus Writer together. Before we dig into the problem, a quick question: what versions of Bookends and Nisus Writer Pro are you using? Bookends recently released a new version (13.4.6) to fix some issues that are very similar to what you've describe...

Re: Inline text box with a border

Unfortunately, if it doesn't work with the Import to epub command, that's a problem for me since that's where the difficulty arose. I assume you mean export to EPUB. Did you see my suggestion to use a table? I just confirmed that table cell borders are exported to EPUB properly. As an alternative, ...

Re: footnote and italics functions not working

Hello dmvarisco: you contacted us about this matter privately and we responded via email yesterday. Please let us know if you can share the problematic document with us for testing, or if you're willing to use a special "debug" version of Nisus Writer to gather more information about this issue. Tha...

Re: Inline text box with a border

Hello Frank: The best solution is for you to use paragraph borders and shading. You can apply such options to regular text paragraphs to achieve the look of an inline text box. To add such display options to your text use the main menu (eg: Format > Paragraph Borders ) or the paragraph palettes. How...

Re: Mysterious Control Character

The Formatting Examiner palette is definitely the best tool for this job. Any time you select a single character (or a single composed character sequence) the palette will show you the relevant information: uchars.png You can see both the character name and code (aka Unicode code point). The palette...

Re: Problem importing images into NW file

I'm sorry for the extra work that you need to redo, but I'm glad that explains it. One other tip: if you don't want to use the Insert menu, you can also drag-drop image files from the Finder. That too should preserve the image data and format. It's only copy-paste that can silently transform your im...

Re: Problem importing images into NW file

Hi Frank: what you described is strange. When you insert an image file into a Nisus Writer document, its original data format should be preserved. At least that's true if you use the menu Insert > Image . Did you use that menu? My suspicion is that maybe you copy-pasted these images, which can trans...

Re: nisus won't launch

Can you please give the "verifying" process a very long time to finish? It's not something we control; it's done by the system (macOS). We've seen that it can take much longer than a person would expect, especially if you have an older Mac. Please have a tea (or dinner) and see if it's done by the t...

Re: Versions

That's a great workaround, thanks Joe! I forgot about the other menu that provides access to Nisus Writer's version history listing.

Re: Versions

I'm using El Capitan 10.11.6. Could that be the problem? That could indeed be the issue. Although the new Versions listing feature is provided by Nisus Writer, its placement on the File menu depends on Nisus Writer properly identifying the place it should appear. That is, Nisus Writer needs to iden...

Re: Versions

Mark's screenshot shows the new menu accurately (thanks for posting it!). You should see the Versions menu exactly like that.

sjha: what version of macOS are you using?

Re: Page-numbering

We're happy to help! To insert a page number you use the menu: Insert > Automatic Number > Page Number Those automatic numbers can appear anywhere, but mostly people want to insert them into headers or footers. To do that you need Page View to be active, click into the header/footer area, and then i...

Re: Problem in saving new files

So what should I do to stop this? I would recommend the same thing as before, which is to reselect your Nisus New File template. Even if the Advanced area of the New File preferences shows the correct file, you should click the "Choose" button to confirm the existing file. That should make the syst...

Re: Style Superimposition

I agree that this would be a very powerful feature for users that really make use of styles. Aside from just enforcing combined text formatting and cleaner stylesheets, which in itself would be very useful, this would also enable many other kinds of automated workflows. I'll certainly record your in...
