Nisus/Word Comment

Nisus/Word Comment -- Mel Martinez writes:

Matt Neuburg (in TidBITS-131) ignores a feature of Nisus that I consider one of the strongest reasons to switch to Nisus after using Word for so long: scrolling speed.

While not quite as fast as a plain text editor, for a WYSIWYG editor, Nisus blazes through a document while Word crawls. This is especially true when the document includes graphics. I would put this under Matt's category "Moving around the document" and give a big nod to Nisus. Scrolling speed also affects the "Editing" category since a click-and-drag that results in a scroll is nearly twice as fast in Nisus as in Word.

Matt also glosses over Nisus's better options for placing a graphic (behind, in front of, or embedded in the text) than Word due to Nisus's separate graphics layer.
