Re: Is "Find Next" possible by attribute (text colour)

That's potentially useful, but I'm having a problem with it in the Results List, which I ran into a few weeks ago also in some other search. It's that the Results List chops the text up as if there are hundreds of different instances, even where the colour is contiguous (continuous). ... Can this b...

Re: Problem with Bookends

Sherman communicated with us privately about his troubles and we learned two things: 1. Resetting Nisus Writer's sandbox helped alleviate some (but not all) of the problems in using Bookends to scan Nisus documents. This fixed issues where some scans would do basically nothing, with Nisus Writer and...

Re: Is "Find Next" possible by attribute (text colour)

Thanks to everyone for all the advice that's been shared. It's probably superfluous now, but our FAQ on searching for text formatting goes over a lot of the methods discussed here. So it would be possible to walk through 'Find Next' for all the 'colored' (any color that's not black) at once, using y...

Re: uneven line spacing

There are many reasons why line spacing can be uneven. Usually the culprit is non-uniform text formatting like fonts, but special characters may also cause uneven spacing. That can occur if a special character (eg: thin space) is taller than the surrounding regular text, or if font substitution has ...

Re: Default text editor

You can definitely set Nisus Writer Express as the default app to reopen its document files. Please see this FAQ on how to change the Finder "open with" settings. Let us know if you have any questions.

Re: Simple Question: how to add a file to another

There's a couple of ways for you to accomplish this: 1. If you need to join several documents together, you're probably best served by the menu Macro > Document > Join Files . It can stitch together multiple files from disk all at once. 2. You can drag a file icon into the text area of any open Nisu...

Re: Problem with Bookends

Since both Bookends and Nisus Writer remain responsive to you, I might guess that this is perhaps a problem with inter-app communications as facilitated by macOS. Though it doesn't make too much sense for that to be affected by one particular citation or another. Please let us know if you learn anyt...

Re: Problem with Bookends

I'm sorry you're having trouble swilcox. Have you contacted Sonny Software about this problem yet? Have they given you any advice? You said that you see the progress message "Processing in Bookends" displayed in Nisus Writer. That means the "Preparing document data" phase has finished, Nisus Writer ...

Re: Indents

Thanks for the sample document Adrian. It shows the situation clearly and I now understand your complaint. You don't like that a paragraph's left/head indent is used as a tabbing location. In other words: a tab character in the text advances horizontal text placement to the left/head indent location...

Re: Thesaurus pane doesn't show

Thanks for the updates, and I'm sorry nothing worked for you. After testing this myself it appears to be a problem that's specific to macOS 10.14 Mojave, and perhaps other older system versions. The problem does not occur on 10.15 Catalina or later. I think the best practical advice is to simply rev...

Re: Indents

It sounds to me like you expect your tab stop on the ruler to be used as a line-wrapping location, for the second and subsequent lines of text in your paragraph. That's not how it should work. That location is controlled by the hanging indent marker on the ruler. But like Amontillado, maybe I just m...

Re: Thesaurus pane doesn't show

That's very strange. You should be able to click and drag the resizer knob that Hamid pointed out. It's a standard macOS system control. You could try resetting Nisus Thesaurus on your Mac, to ensure there's no damaged settings that might be interfering. Here's how to completely reset Thesaurus: 1. ...

Re: infoclick update?

After further investigation, there is indeed a mistake here. The Sparkle framework inside of Nisus Writer does incorrectly include an app called "InfoClick Autoupdate". This is purely a file naming error. The mistake occurred because the Sparkle framework is shared by several Nisus apps. The name of...

Re: List Styles

Thanks for the feedback, but list styles are not based on paragraph styles. The current setup is that paragraph styles are in control. The paragraph style does all the work to enforce the list style and other paragraph formatting like spacing. Aside from indents, which are controlled by the list sty...
