Space before paragraph and ruler origin

Two things: First thing. Space before paragraph does not work after a break of any kind and at document start. I want each heading in my document to be below top margin by a given amount – typically 30 points. That is why Heading 1, in my case, has space "Before" set to 30. But space before a paragr...

It is my opinion that, what with left and right indents, outdents and tab marks, the ruler is already, though gracefully, crowded as it is. Word, a microsoftish app, allowed you to set margins by dragging marks along the rulers, as far as I remember (I haven't been using it for long), but I remember...

I would not. I like that "feature."
By the way, why do not you switch to draft view when copying text?
Cheers, Henry.

Why not a new voice in the gear menu at the bottom of the pane, like in Mail? Those two voices look as lonely as a couple of pips in a calabash.

If I grasped your idea right you are trying to find text with two different attributes. If so, you cannot. Only one set of attributes is allowed at a time.
BTW, what's a line separator?

QuickFix too intrusive?

I typed the following in Find window (Normal Find):
.... (four periods)
and NWP changed it into:
…. (ellipsis + period).
I had to go to Preferences > QuickFix and disable Fix Typos for a while to keep it from getting in the way. Not a real bother, a bit funny.
Misspelled words are not fixed, though.

Nisus can't be held accountable for hyphenation errors. NWP uses Apple's hyphenation dictionary (NWP's Help, page 32/56). If you feel uneasy with Apple's dictionary you why don't you try googling open source CocoAspell instead? (Come to that, I'm not sure you'll find hyphenation dictionaries too, th...

Besides, if you loosen kerning two contiguous en-dashes will spread apart and show the trick, i.e. the gap in between.

Re: Section Break's odd behavior

As long as you type a character -- any character, it seems, visible or invisible -- after the break, you can then drag in and your dragged material will lot in after that character. Thanks, Greeno. I was aware of that, by the way. I use to insert a blank paragraph after the break, to be deleted aft...

Section Break's odd behavior

I have wanted to post this since the times of beta 1 but it is continually dropping off my mind. 1) I open a document and insert a Section Break at the end of it. Then I open another file, select some text and drag it right after the section break. However accurate I am, the text drops right before ...

Manual?

Unless I am missing something NWPro is being given without help or user manual. Not for me, since I am still using the manual that came with the beta version, but for the newcomers.
