Re: Automatic Ordinals?

[quote]can Nisus handle automatic ordinals for dates?[/quote] Don't know about in the custom date format, but under Preferences:QuickFix, checking Superscript ordinals will give you 3<rd> (where <> is superscript) when you type 3-r-d or 2-3-r-d, for example. (It will do the same for 1-3-r-d, but 1-3...

Big Sur and Nisus

As I understand it, Big Sur brings big changes to the OSX operating system, making it much more like the iPad OS interface (of which I am not a fan). With the new M1 cpus Apple created, how will this affect the operation of Nisus (and other traditional programs)? More specifically, will it cripple N...

Re: Opening files with the extension:'docx'

Nisus does a very good job of importing docx files in _most_ cases, but there are some in which it fails/has failed entirely, even after going through LO and export-to-rtf attempts. One is when the original Word document has sections with a mask applied. A couple of years ago I needed to translate s...

Re: Adding furigana

Unfortunately, Nisus does not have a furigana/ruby function. (It also does not have a vertical writing feature.) A workaround is to put the reading in parentheses following the word.

Re: catalina and Nisus Pro

I really don't know if this would be a work-around, but if they are static, could you not take a screen shot (png) of the equations in MathType (or on your Mojave machine) and use the screen shots?

3.04 and opening docx files -bug?

Ever since upgrading to 3.04 I have been unable to open .docx files in Japanese in NWP. (Have not tried English bc I don't have any) The following error is reported. I have tried opening files from a year or more ago that the previous version had to problem opening. If I open the file in Word and sa...

Re: text color

Alternatively, you could assign a key in the menu preferences to 'Red' and another to 'Black', and simply press the key to change the color of the text you are typing.
I use F6 for red and F7 for black, and the change is instantaneous -- that is, not an interruption to my work flow.

Sort bug in glossary files

Since upgrading to NWP 3.04, sorting a block of text in a glossary file (using the Edit:Transform Paragraphs:Ascending command, both from the menu and thru a macro) results in a superfluous New Line character being inserted after every Glossary Entry Break character. Is this a bug or an unintended '...

Re: Copy disabled

Every now and then Nisus also stops responding to any keyboard input for me. I have never been able to correlate this to any specific action I have taken, but the problem has been resolved by quitting and restarting Nisus. I have usually been able to quit using the mouse, and when not, cmd-escape to...

Re: Japanese top>bottom, right>left

I pasted the text in Word, which makes it very simple to format with a couple of clicks. Alas.

Re: Japanese top>bottom, right>left

Thank you. Unfortunately it is not a solution. As the instructions say: "The vertical text boxes are not a solution for full-page vertical text layout, but rather an extra feature to embellish your default horizontal text layout." I needed a full solution for a document written in Japanese, not an e...
