Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.3 and Express 3.4.2

Send Article to a Friend

Nisus Software has released updates to both its word processing apps — Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.3 and Nisus Writer Express 3.4.2. Both apps are code-signed using an Apple Developer ID for compatibility with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion’s Gatekeeper security feature, and both now require Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later. Additionally, both fix an issue where a splash screen stayed visible after Nisus Writer launched and fix a possible hang when switching to the stylesheet view while running Mountain Lion. Plus, both the Pro and Express apps improve hyphenation for many non-English languages (including Danish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, and more).

Amongst the voluminous changes, Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.3 fixes a variety of issues related to creating a PDF and printing (including incorrect page numbers appearing in the generated TOC, index, or cross-references), ensures that floating images won’t go missing when exporting to HTML or EPUB, preserves page breaks in exported EPUBs, and ensures that chapter headings trigger a page/chapter break in an EPUB. Similarly, Nisus Writer Express 3.4.2 fixes some of its own issues with creating PDFs and printing (such as errant white space near the bottom of pages) plus a problem with some semibold font faces being converted to full (or “faked”) bold. Note that neither the Mac App Store versions of Nisus Writer Pro or Nisus Writer Express have been updated to their most recent versions as of this writing. (For Nisus Writer Pro: $79 new, free update, 137 MB, release notes. For Nisus Writer Express: $45 new, free update, 37.7 MB, release notes.)
