Nisus Writer Pro 2.1.7

Nisus Software has released Nisus Writer Pro 2.1.7 with added support for the Touch Bar on the 2016 MacBook Pro and improved support for tabbed documents in macOS 10.12 Sierra. Tab-related changes include displaying all tab menu commands on the View menu, adding a New Tab command that always opens a blank document, and maintaining tabs when reopening at launch. The powerful word processor also ensures that autosaved Untitled files are cleared away after documents are saved explicitly, fixes bugs related to table of contents and indexing, and resolves crashes related to the Touch Bar. Note that Nisus Software also updated Nisus Writer Express to version 3.5.7 with most of the same changes. ($79 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members from Nisus Software and the Mac App Store, free update, 225 MB, release notes, 10.8.5+)

Am I the only user for whom this does not install? I have tried several times on several networks, with no joy. If anyone has a solution ....

Worked fine for me. Perhaps try downloading manually from the Nisus site?
