Feature Request: Forced Justify Tab

Nisus Writer "Classic" included a "Forced Justify Tab" setting that was very helpful for formatting Arabic and Persian poetry. This feature is missing in Nisus Writer Pro. I would find it very useful if this feature could be added.

The spacing problem with justified text is alleviated to some extent if you enable hyphenation (View->Hyphenation).

Re: Book on Nisus Writer Pro

Joe, First, let me say that I really liked your book The Nisus Way! I was a big fan of Nisus Writer as a graduate student in the '90s and used it to typeset two books. I found Nisus Writer's powerful search-and-replace, support for scripts like Arabic & Persian, and macro language immensely useful, ...

Re: Epub Export

I've re-composed the first few pages of my book entirely in Nisus Pro and am also receiving validation errors on EPUB output. I've attached the report, the Nisus file, and the EPUB file.

Re: Epub Export

Thanks to all who posted about and found the workaround for this issue. I'm considering whether to do the page layout for a book in Nisus Pro or Apple Pages, and EPUB export is a key consideration. I was also encountering the error message, "No valid entries in the spine of this EPUB" in Calibre wit...

Re: Drag and copy

Martin, Actually, the behavior of Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.2 is different from that of other applications in an important way. For example, with Text Edit, Microsoft Word 2011, or Pages '09, you can 1) first select some text, then 2) press the Option key and 3) click on and drag the selected text to pas...

Re:

Matze: Try starting your drag first and THEN press the option key. We will work on resolving this interface issue in the future so it is not so difficult to decipher. -Charles I note that this interface issue also exists in Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.2. It would be nice if this could be resolved in the n...

Re: A mere curiosity: Nisus for Linux

I'd love to see a Linux port of Nisus Writer, too. I switched from Mac to Ubuntu as my primary OS in 2006.
