Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.7 and Nisus Writer Express 3.4.6

Nisus Software has released Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.7 and Nisus Writer Express 3.4.6, both maintenance releases offering a festival of fixes. Both editions of the word processing app squash a bug that caused a crash for those running Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard after pasting table cells with an applied list style or when closing documents with some smart content, load language icons in the background to avoid a slowdown with 10.9 Mavericks, and fix an issue that caused a crash when editing an equation in the MathType equation editor. On the hyphen front, the update ensures that hyphenation patterns are properly respected (some hyphenation for non-English languages was suffering in the previous releases) and that soft hyphens successfully transfer to Microsoft Word. Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.7 also resolves a change-tracking issue that triggered unpredictable behavior after typing over text with a straight quote that was then automatically corrected into a smart quote — since we reported this one, we’re particularly happy to see it fixed so quickly. (Nisus Writer Pro: $79 new, free update, 179 MB, release notes. Nisus Writer Express: $45 new, free update, 50.9 MB, release notes.)
