Gee, NWP is a pleasure to work with!

Post by greenmorpher » 2014-02-25 15:32:10

I'm just putting together the program for a professional workshop, writing it up in NWP.

I have to beat my brain to come up with the content and it is simply a pleasure to be able to get it all down in NWP with appropriate headings and body copy type using my outline styles. I think I spent three or four hours setting this styles up about five years ago so that I can apply them with keyboard short cuts and using the "next style" feature, move seamlessly from heading to body style, and it has saved me countless hours since.

It’s a pleasure to use NWP! :love:

Best regards
Geoff

Hi, Geoff

I published two printed books through CreateSpace for selling on Amazon. The first one was a novel, very simple. The second one came out a few months ago. It’s 186 pages long, with a number of tables, about 50 images with captions, many of them floating. I have here a printed copy with me. It’s perfect. As you say, working with Nisus is easy and pleasurable.

Best, Henry

Please note that images in Amazon’s “look inside” preview appear darker than in the printed version. Glad to help.

Nice, Henry. Out of curiosity, what font were you using?

Thank you.

I used Gentium Book Basic (by SIL.org) for the main text and Tallys (by Jos Buivenga) for the headings. This is my standard set. People who have read my books thoroughly have said they are very good. I think you can find both on Font Squirrel.

I have Gentium Book Basic. I had used that for quite some time, but in the last year or so have used Linux Libertine O. Very nice, readable font.

But I like how well Gentium Book Basic turned out.

Thanks, Geoff.

exegete, I’ll give it a try. Although I think I’ll stick to my tradition, which is settled on Gentium. Thank you.

Best, Henry.
