It is the same on all the keyboards that I use: US Extended, British, French, Russian, Arabic and Persian. I just checked German and it is not different.
In NW Classic you can also obtain a corresponding (non-Unicode) character by pressing Option-Spacebar.

NO-BREAK SPACE

Elbrecht wrote:I customized my keyboard to include the NON BREAKING SPACE with SIL's "Ukelele" tool
You don't need to do that. I just press Option-Spacebar which gives me NO-BREAK SPACE (U+00A0) in all the fonts that I use.

As a workaround you can do the following: Supposing your bookmark description appears in the Navigator like this: 1. 2. 3. Double-click on the first bookmark description and apply the 'Add Bookmark As' command f...

It has not been fixed; after installing 1.0.3, I printed a document and got 2900 lines on the log which I sent to Feedback.

British English

In NWP Preferences=>Languages, select ‘English (British)' from the list of languages, and in the ’Spelling’ pop-up menu select ‘British English’. This should fix the problem. I suspect your current setting in Spelling is 'English', which, believe it or not, means 'American English'.

plist file

This may be caused by a corrupt plist file, especially if you used an old version of NWE on the same machine. Quit NWP if it is running and then drag the file 'com.nisus.NisusWriter.plist' on to the Desktop from Users/you/Library/Preferences. This will result in loss of some of your NWP Preferences,...

Arabic script

Could you specify what characters you need and which are missing or at least what Arabic script languages you want to use with NWE/NWP?

You can use iCliplite which is free:

You can use the default Cocoa app shortcut Option-Delete to delete backward one word.

Macro=>Dates

There are some built-in macros to insert date and/or time under Macro=>Dates menu or Macro=>insert menu. You may have one of these. I have both because I have retained some old macros as well.

I had one redundant asterisk yesterday with the latest public beta. It was in a footnote text that I had last edited before closing the document.
