Hopefully the new upcoming Nisus Writer Pro will give Nisus all (or nearly all) the features it has lacked since the Nisus Writer Classic version. While I am delighted to see Nisus Writer Pro and I will be very keen to beta test and then download the completed version as soon as it is available I d...

It was evil spirits. I'm certain of this because I get them as well.

Re: Speed Issues

Hi It does sound like a problem to me because Nisus Writer Express launches very fast for me. FYI I use an Intel iMac, but I couldn't tell you if it is a "Core Duo" or what-have-you as I am very bad with hardware. I have found that turning off "Font menu shows previews" in the "Appearance" part of t...

Hi I'm just chipping in to mention to hatchmo one of my favourite Nisus Writer features. It won't be of any help to the problem but it might be very neat to know about for the other keyboard short-cuts hatchmo may want to set. Uniquely with Nisus Writer a keyboard short-cut can consist of modifier k...

My biggest concern is that the dreaded "feature creep" will overwhelm Nisus and destroy the very reasons I started using it - simple, small footprint, speedy, reliable, low cost WP for the masses, not large arcane feature sets and impenetrable user i/f that destabilize the whole thing while making ...

Re: outline

On the screen capture it looks like the left drawer has an outline view. That is perfect for me. I don't know why it didn't make it onto the list of features they highlight. To me that looks like a "Document Map" like in Word. I hope so as I very much like the Document Map in Word. From my perspect...

Style aware find and replace. Automatically updating styles. Make it such that the user can clear out the macro menu of the supplied default macros. Improved AppleScriptability such that, for example, margins can be changed on a group of documents. Document Map, like Word. Cross referencing and mar...

Well personally I'm looking forward to Leopard because I've read somewhere or other that it will no longer dependent on screen resolution to scale what is seen on screen. For some time now Apple have been making computers with 96 dpi screens but the applications are all designed to work on 72 dpi sc...

I agree with you that these are very important things to have in the word processor and like you I would very much like to see them. However neither you nor I know the issues involved in implementing them or why they haven't arrived yet. I too have a great number of things I'd like to see in NWE and...

I hate the fact that you can't remove the example macros from the macro menu even more :evil:

On the other, other hand, Melel loads in half the time. Have you tried turning off "Font Menu shows previews" in the Appearance tab of the Preferences? As an aside, you might find the Find/Replace in Nisus Writer Express something to explore. If the GREP symbols of PowerFind Pro don't appeal then h...

Well I don't use it for anything but I will give you two examples: If you want to make the same set of modifications to a whole bunch of different images then you could use Automator to do that. If you want to rename a big group of files including an incremental number at the end you could get it to...

Whenever I have to translate a text from English to German, even if I try to be as concise as possible without crippling the meaning of the text, the german version will be about 20% longer than the English one. It's well worth it though as it is such an expressive language for singing. A recording...
