Move the Dock Quickly

You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.

Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.1

Send Article to a Friend

After Joe Kissell’s detailed look at the myriad changes in Nisus Writer Pro 2.0 in “Nisus Writer Pro 2.0: The Review” (8 June 2011), it shouldn’t be surprising that Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.1 would have plenty of fixes for issues related to the many major new features. That update is now available, and the release notes do indeed make for lengthy reading. Notable fixes for problems Joe discussed include improved importers for Word documents, working intra-document hyperlinks in EPUBs, a resolution for drag-and-drop of rulers inserting the character “a” erroneously, and proper display of adjacent paragraphs with similar shading but different padding amounts. Not surprisingly, there are also changes for compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, including support for Lion’s full-screen mode. Other notable improvements include better compatibility with Bookends and MathType, working image insertion via the “Link to a file on disk” option, a Compare Duplicate Text macro, and sharper tag icons, among much else. It’s also worth noting that Nisus released Nisus Writer Pro 1.4.2 for users of the previous version to provide Lion compatibility, improved Word importers, and other general fixes. ($79 new, $49 upgrade from 1.x, free update, 165 MB)
