A nice addition: key strokes for all the submenu choices. For example, in the "don't save," "cancel," and "save" menu, you can use key strokes for two of the choices--cancel (cmd .) and save (enter, since it's highlighted). There's no key stroke for "don't save." My wish for 3.0 is a key stroke (may...

dshan and Martin:

Thanks very much for the tips. I've incorporated them all, and now NWE launches almost instantly--just what I was after.

By the way, version 2.7 is GREAT. Nice work.

launch speed

Is there a way to tweak NWE to launch faster? After a restart on my machine, NWE takes a full 15 seconds to launch to a new document. After I've launched it, worked on something, closed it, then launched it again, it takes about 7 seconds. It's not a huge deal, but it would be nice to have an almost...

default table

Thanks very much for the idea.

A glossary entry and the apple script is a great solution to the problem.

default table form

Is there any way to set the table default to no borders?

I frequently use tables as a formatting tool to set up columns of text. It would be much easier to have new tables start out with no borders than to remove them manually each time.

Why won't spotlight index

Duh... You're exactly right. Spotlight does not index my Nisus files that I save as Word docs. Thanks for pointing it out.

Why won't spotlight index nisus

Interesting. But my experience was just the opposite--totally seamless. On my 12" ibook with 10.4.6 using Nisus 2.7, Spotlight indexes all my Nisus files as well as Word files and everything else. Since I'm leaving Word and going full-time with Nisus, here's one thing I've done that may or may not b...

In my writing, I change the spacing all the time. Typically, I'll write rough drafts in double space because that's easier to read and edit. Double spaced Courier is my NWE default. For final versions, depending on the formatting requirements, I'll switch everything to single spacing, change the typ...

line spacing keystrokes

I've just bought NWE 2.6.1 and I'm thrilled with it. But I have a question: Is there a way to assign a keyboard command to line spacing and bypass the format pallette? For instance, I want to set a paragraph in my document to double space by selecting the paragraph and pressing cmd+2. Similary, I wa...
