Re: preferences gone

You should be able to use Nisus Writer's Menu Keys preferences to set keyboard shortcuts for any and all menus. Maybe you didn't notice the horizontal scrollbar along the bottom? You can scroll to the left to see earlier menus in the hierarchy. The scrollbar across the bottom. I was wondering what ...

Re: preferences gone

Incidentally, while I'm here, I notice that the menu item says "Display as Capitalized". Was it always called this? I vaguely recall some issue I had once that was resolved once I understood that "Display as" was not the same as "Change to", that is, the first letter of my word was not in fact an up...

preferences gone

I just tried to use one of my user-defined keyboard shortcuts (I'd set shift-cmd-> to capitalise a word) and it's gone. On closer inspection I see that all of my user-defined shortcuts have gone - I guess in the past day or two. Any idea how this might have happened? Has there been some sort of upda...

no scroll bars in fonts list

That about says it. I have no scroll bars in the font list in the formatting palette. Is this a preference thing (can't find it) or a glitch, or is it just me? In support of the latter hypothesis, there seems to be something "hidden" under the typeface pop-up menu: formatting.jpg Actually, now I loo...

Yep, problem disappears.
I'm glad to hear that. Am I then right to assume that we have solved the problem?
Walked around it, I'd say. :)

Re: removing page break mid-paragraph

Hi Martin,

No, not the footnotes, they're only one line long, and in any case removing them altogether makes no difference. Baffling.

Re: removing page break mid-paragraph

The thing is, it's in different places each time I open the file (I don't save it, so every time I open the doc file I get a clean version). Duplicate the original Word file and put it in a safe place. Then open the copy in Nisus and save it in Nisus. Work with this test copy. Select everything in ...

Re: removing page break mid-paragraph

The thing is, it's in different places each time I open the file (I don't save it, so every time I open the doc file I get a clean version). It happens after I change the margins (the original doc has something like 50mm margins), the font and the size. And there's the break, bottom of p.2. Have a l...

removing page break mid-paragraph

Hi all, I have some documents created in Word that have been sent to me and several of them have page breaks mid-paragraph that I can't get rid of. They're not being forced by long footnotes, and all the "grouping" options are off. I can't get anything to sit in the space below the break, not even a...

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

Now why didn't I upgrade to 3? My naturally suspicious nature I guess. But wow! split view. It's 2002 all over again. :wink:

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

Hi Martin, it was the problem where I click (and hold) below the bar in the scrollbar and the pages scroll upwards (or click above, and they scroll down)... It's been doing it through several versions of NWP, several OS and even two different laptops. This was years ago and we gave up on it. It must...

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 m...
