Re: Scrolling leaks to other windows (sometimes)

Hmm, interesting. There is a setting to scroll splits simultaneously; to keep things in sync. It sounds like the first scenario you described was that one, and thus working as intended. But scrolling in one window shouldn't scroll a different window on a different document. This was a separate docum...

Theming or using Dark Mode

So I see all the appearance options in the Preferences, but I was curious: is there a way to save a "theme" or a set of colors, and apply them all at once? More specifically, I am trying out Dark Mode on Mojave, and was hoping to skin Nisus Writer Pro to match it better. But making each change one a...

Re: How to cleanup a history stored file

The interesting thing here is that I see the original point fairly often: Nisus documents with embedded images, PDFs, etc can balloon to large sizes that, when saved as a PDF is much, much smaller--even if the inserted images are PDF's themselves and presumably don't get downsampled or anything. I w...

Re: To Bold all text between parentheses

Yes, Regex is nice.... though to be honest, if you have a problem and resort to Regex, it's almost certain that now you have two problems, as the saying goes....

Nice to have, but best avoided!

Re: Complete Table of Content/Outline text visualization

I'm afraid the only thing you can do besides changing the width of the Navigator sidebar is to change the font and font size of the text inside it. In Preferences->Appearance, there's a preference for the Navigator sidebar font. Making the text smaller will allow more of it to show up. But if you ha...

Window objects

So while researching an answer for a question about palettes not fully on the screen I discovered that there appears to be no way to access the window positions in the macro language. You can show and hide the window but moving it appears to not be possible? You have to use applescript, I think, to ...

Re: Help needed: palette out of reach

Interesting little problem. There appears to be no way to programmically grab it. So: 1) try minimizing and unminimizing Nisus Writer Pro to the dock. Upon bringing it back it may redraw in a valid position. 2) Close all of your other floating palettes. Then, in the Window:Palettes menu, click off "...

Re: Paste does not work same in 3.0

If a different keyboard doesn't fix this, and Mellel, etc also do not appear to register the keyboard sequence, then it is likely that the system itself is messing around with it. Does System Preferences: Keyboard : Shortcuts show anything? Does Command V do anything--regular paste? Or perhaps Contr...

Re: Where Is the Upgrade Package?

The old Nisus Writer icon is still in the about box, mostly for nostalgia's sake--the "Nisus Man" logo has been there since the Classic days, and Martin has said they left it in the About box and somewhere else, just to keep him around a bit. If it says version 3.0 though, you have version 3.0. Like...

Re: Nonstandard Page Numbering

Seems like if you go to the section palette in chapter 2, and make sure the "page numbering" submenu is expanded, you'll see a "Restart At" command that is greyed out. However, the text box next to it is active. Enter whatever page number you want to start chapter two at, 12 it appears. That should ...

Re: PDF Opens One Page Only

As a (vaguely) related question: Is there an easy way to add all pages of a PDF to a Nisus document? I frequently have to attach copies of a PDF document as part of an appendix, for instance. Right now I have to laboriously copy each page, one at a time, in Preview and then paste it into my Nisus do...

Re: "Facing Columns"

No, there's been no progress. As far as I know, the only way to get "facing columns" on the mac is either through LaTex (adding the appropriate package), or using a page layout program such as Canvas, iCalamus, or InDesign. You CAN use Corel's old mac version of Wordperfect via Basilisk and Sheepsha...

Re: Problems opening documents

First questions: How much free space on your SSD? OS X requires about 10% of the disc capacity to be free for various things like virtual memory and so forth. So if you don't have around 30 GB free on a 500GB drive... that might explain some of it. Does Nisus demonstrate these same behaviors after a...

Re: Incompatibility of NWP and Sugarsync (+other clouds?)

Hmm. Interesting. I keep most of my documents on a Dropbox shared folder, and it works flawlessly. Heck, I've had the document open on both the laptop and the desktop in Nisus, and it still works--asking me if I want to reload the document from disk after it's been changed. Since Nisus documents are...

Re: Move Comments to Marked Text (in one swell foop)—Solved

Hmm. That's a subtle quirk there Philip. The Macro language guide, under the "Call" section, explains how to build a proper "Map" command, though you apparently have to hand build the function. You can no doubt do "filter" and "Reduce" the same way. I wish it was built in, though. The macro language...
