Feature Request: Include Footnotes in Word Count?

I know there are work-arounds, but it would be great if the stats bar could count words in footnotes along with the body text (as an option, a la Word? or, as such, like Mellel does it--whatever is easiest/whatever people prefer). I hate having to mobilize my arithmetic when trying to gauge the leng...

I see little of that here, and perhaps a hint of calculation, or at least pressuring, as well. Not fair. Not cool. Unfortunately, this doesn't surprise me. This is the norm, I think. The only way to get around this stuff--as I've been tempted to do many, many times in situations just like this--is ...

What a peculiar bug. I just recreated it at home. Now that I know what causes this, it won't be half as annoying (and I can better avoid it).

Thanks.

Feature Request: Footnotes in Full Screen?

Would it be possible to make footnotes readable in full screen mode? I love using full screen (in the retro look that the Nisus manual suggests... maybe I would be more productive on a DOS machine), but in my scholarly writing I use footnote citations, which makes for a distracting experience in ful...

I submitted a document with this problem to Nisus a couple of days ago. Since it seemed like at least a couple of other people had this problem, I will let you know what they come up with.

Re: agreed

This has been covered in other topics, but I don't think it's dodgy. I bought NWE1, and I don't remember paying for upgrades until now. That's over three years that I can recall. (Anything further back is beginning to become hazy, but that's just my age, I think!) Yes, but in fairness NWE 1 lacked ...

I already use the document manager for something like this, so a full-fledged project manager would be a wonderful addition, in my opinion.

asterisk is killing me

Dear friends, Sometimes when I open a document, I find strangely placed asterisks have been added to words or in between words... Perhaps more frequently with footnotes. What's up with this? Very annoying. I just recently switched back from Mellel: some welcome these asterisks are giving me... Sam

Thanks to all. I sent a sample text to Nisus. Although, perhaps they will not encounter see the problem--I opened the same document in Word and Mellel and it didn't have this issue!

Completely weird. Maybe I should re-download Nisus (and the courier font?) and see if that helps.

Thanks for trying, Scott. A few weeks ago I would not have been able to reproduce this either. This issue has just recently cropped up. But it's driving me crazy.

strange en-dash behavior with courier fonts

Hello all, I'm not sure how to phrase this question. In the courier font NWP produces a strange auto correct when I type "--" that conjoins the two characters when I press the space bar. That is, it seems to try to do an autocorrect of some kind. However, I have no such autocorrect set and it doesn'...
