Really slow reacting to typing in 3.0.1

Post by JHB » 2019-01-03 07:21:17

I'm running NWP 3.0.1, and it is really slow in showing what I am typing. I am often a few words ahead of what has appeared on screen. I know that my computer is nearly five years old (System Info says MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013)), but other things work just fine. I have 16 MB of memory, and iStat Menus tells me that memory pressure is 33%, used 66%. The document I'm working on is only ten pages.

I haven't used NWP a lot since the 3.0 update came out, so I'm not sure whether it's 3.0.1 only, but I have really noticed it since installing that update.

Any thoughts?

Sometimes restarting the computer could help to solve the problem or the use of an app like Cocktail/Maintenance, TinkerTool or Onyx to perform maintenance of the computer. Be sure to get the correct version of these maintenance apps for the version of macOS you are using.

OK, a restart does appear to have fixed things. But now I'm getting a different problem.

If I double-click a file created by NWP, I get a message warning me that it couldn't be opened because it was from an unidentified developer:
“Read Me.rtf” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the App Store and identified developers. Nisus Writer Pro created this file today at 13:07.
I've submitted feedback, but it would be nice to know what is happening there.

What happens if you try to open the file from within NWP, then save it, close the app and after that double-click on the file once again? Do you get the same message?

I've sorted it out now. I guess that the quarantine flag hadn't been cleared yet for the updated NWP. When I right-clicked in Finder and asked it to open, it gave the stupid message that it would allow Read Me.rtf to always open (rather than NWP). I think everything is correct now.
