Re: Bookends 14.0

Hi,
I have the same problem—in fact I've already installed Bookends 14.0, but can't get it to communicate with NWP.

When I asked Sonny Software about this, they seemed to be under the impression that you'd already posted an update to NWP which fixed the problem.

Best wishes

Re: Big Sur and Nisus

As I have Nisus launch during the start-up process, I hadn't noticed whether it was sluggish or not under Big Sur before the upgrade to 3.2.1. However I've just tried closing and opening it, I can confirm that it's now almost instantaneous. Not only does the application open fast, but some of my big...

Re: Problem with dark mode

Having just graduated to Big Sur, on an Intel-equipped Mac, I've been taking a look at dark mode. It hasn't taken me long to decide that it's not for me, but I can imagine some people find it useful. Thanks to this thread, I've suddenly realised that Nisus is offering an in-app switcher to dark mode...

Re: New Mac: NWP loses connection to Bookends

Hi, I see that nobody's replied to your question yet, and I wonder if that may be because the original question, which I asked back in August, was seen as having been resolved. As a non-specialist, I'm completely incapable of answering your question, and if you haven't found a solution yet, maybe it...

Mozilla: should I trust them?

Like quite a lot of people, I imagine, I frequently find myself downloading the latest version of Firefox. Each time I do so, I see a welcome screen telling me of all the wonderful security features I could take advantage of if I signed up for their various services. The latest one being a VPN. Each...

Re: New Mac: NWP loses connection to Bookends

Problem solved, thanks to the folks over at Sonny Software. Under Catalina, there's an item called "Automation" in the "Privacy" section of System Preferences, which I hadn't been aware of. For some reason, NWP was checked to allow it to control Bookends, but the opposite wasn't the case. I've no id...

Re: New Mac: NWP loses connection to Bookends

Hi Martin, thanks for lookiing into this. No, when "Insert citation" fails, there's no error message: nothing happens. Of course, I have a simple workaround, because I can just copy the citation from Bookends and then paste it into my NWP document. I may raise this on the Sonny Software site. If I g...

New Mac: NWP loses connection to Bookends

I've recently bought a new MacBook Pro, and therefore switched from High Sierra to Catalina. I used Time Machine to import all my files from the old machine (also a MacBook Pro, from 2015) and found that both NWP and Bookends seemed to run just fine on the new one. So far, I haven't bought new licen...

Re: Two Languages at the same time

Hi Michael, I do this a lot, between English and French. Of course, as Martin says, you need to mark each chunk of text as being in the desired language. The most basic way to do that is to select your text, and use the "language" palette to define which language it's in. If you're switching languag...

Re: 2nd-level TOC entries as a single paragraph

Many thanks to Martin for these explanations. I very much appreciate all the clickable possibilities when transforming Nisus documents into PDFs, and I recognise that the specific problem I raised is probably not of very high priority, unless the shades of Twain and Dickens return to haunt us, and b...

Re: 2nd-level TOC entries as a single paragraph

Many thanks to Hamid and Philip for these replies. Two conclusions for me at this stage: Firstly, the feature I'm looking for doesn't currently exist in NWP (I was wondering if there was simply some bit of the manual or some forum message I'd missed). Secondly, I don't feel able at this stage to imp...

2nd-level TOC entries as a single paragraph

Hi, I'm formatting a longish document with lots of subtitles within each chapter. This gives me an inordinately long multi-page TOC, which I'd like to reduce as much as possible. I'd like to be able to present the second-level entries in the TOC as a single long paragraph, with a separating characte...

NWP 3: Great news!

Having just installed it, I haven't had time to try out any of the new features; I've simply noticed that my 5.2 Mb daily notes file renders much faster under the new version than under the previous one. But to be quite honest, I'm delighted to be given an opportunity to pay some actual money to Nis...

Re: Best way to manage style sheets in a multi-language doc

Hi Þorvarður Thanks for that. I guess it's just a case of "RTFM". I was looking at the individual styles in my document, and noting that they all specified a language. I therefore assumed that to use the same style, but in a different language, you had to create a new style. In reply to your last qu...

Best way to manage style sheets in a multi-language doc

I'm writing a series of documents which will contain both a text in English followed by its translation into French (or vice-versa). I'm just wondering what is the most ergonomic way to manage my style sheets for the whole thing. So far, I've improvised by tacking on a "Normal_fr" style to the stand...
