New document window size

Post by ericmacknight »

I just upgraded to Catalina.

Is there any way to make new documents open in windows that fill the screen? Is this a Nisus setting, or an OS X setting?

I like to see just one document at a time, and it's annoying to have to re-size every time.

Thanks in advance!

G’day, Eric et al

I’m not sure how things go under Catalina, but in Nisus Writer Pro under Mojave you can use View > Full Screen. There is an existing keyboard shortcut for that command.

Another possibility is to adjust the window size of a Nisus New File document so it fills the screen (apart from the main menu bar at the top), then save it as the New File template.

Nisus Writer Pro > Preferences > New File > Advanced > Open for Editing…

Make your adjustments, then Save the file.

Adrian already replied with all the right info (thanks!), but I just wanted to help with the second suggestion, in case you decide to customize your template. Please see our FAQ topic on how to customize your New File template window.
