Re: printing problems — lines superimpose

Funny, I was about to post a thread on this bug myself. I can confirm that it's happening frequently to me as well. As a workaround I have found that closing and reopening the document, or making any change that forces re-pagination of the affected pages, will often (not always) make the glitch go a...

Re: oldstyle figures, etc

It's nice to have a reminder of this, because I keep losing track of where I can find this functionality, and I bet a large proportion of Nisus users have no idea it's even there. The Apple controls are buried pretty deep -- a lot of unintuitive mouse-clicks and head-scratching in there -- and perha...

Re: Line-wrapping bug: space, then punctuation

If you really have the problem with those characters, you would better send a sample document to Nisus Soft together with a PDF. Yes, I really have the problem with those characters. And yes, I have sent a sample document (quite some time ago). If this doesn't get fixed in a timely manner (as it ha...

Re: Line-wrapping bug: space, then punctuation

Thanks for all the macro help -- but you seem to have missed, or I've been unclear, that this is happening with all the punctuation marks I've tried, certainly not just the closing element of a pair of quotation marks or parens. It's happened with opening parens and quote-marks just as well. My exam...

Re: Line-wrapping bug: space, then punctuation

Thanks for the workaround; I guess I can always insert a ZWNJ before every punctuation character that's preceded by a space. This seems awfully kludgey, though. Even if Apple can't be prevailed upon to fix the bug quickly it would be nice if NWP stuck these ZWNJs where they needed to go to fix this ...

Line-wrapping bug: space, then punctuation

I'm seeing a repeated problem with lines wrapping/breaking too early when a space, then a punctuation mark, comes directly after the word that should end the line. That is, a line in the middle of a pgph., whose contents are "blah blah blah verylongword ." -- where the "." should wrap onto the next ...

FYI, doing a "Check for updates" within 1.0.3 is still reporting that "Your version is current" as of this morning.

disappearing cursor

Re-reporting a problem that's been bothering me under Express and Pro: the cursor sometimes disappears when using arrow keys to move it. It looks like there's something faulty in the logic that stops it blinking: when it should stop blinking and remain visible while moving, instead, it goes invisibl...

When more than a single table is selected, "Copy Table Text" is grayed out. Save As -> text works nicely, though; thanks.

Easy way to remove table?

I have a bunch of cut-and-pasted web material (pasted in the form of many individual tables, for whatever reason) in a Nisus document. I don't care about the table structure and layout at all, and I want to be able to manipulate all the text at once. Is there an easy way to remove all the tables and...

agree

I agree with thf, it would be great to have the ability to disable margin-dragging in page view. I constantly have to undo accidental margin changes when I was trying to select text. Changing margins is something you only want to do occasionally, so it'd be fine to make it less accessible.

Will Express be updated at some point? There hasn't even been a bug-fix release in a long time, and believe me, there are still bugs.

disappearing cursor?

Are there any known fixes for a disappearing cursor? I have occasional problems with it vanishing during typing in NWX, particularly when I move it using keyboard shortcuts like Cmd-Right Arrow or Cmd-Left Arrow to go a word at a time. (To be clear, I'm not referring to the mouse cursor/pointer but ...

Make sure the file name doesn't contain any periods. There's a bug opening WP documents whose name contains a period -- NWX seems to use file name extensions in a nonstandard way.
