If you keep the option key pressed while selecting Open... Nisus will use the Claris XTND technology if it is installed. And the good news is that there is a XTND Developer package available at ftp.apple.com that includes XTND and filters for MacWrite and MacWrite II. It's in the /dts/mac/tools/xtnd directory, but it's big, about 520K. The XTND file must be in a folder named 'Claris' inside the System Folder, and all translators goes into the 'Claris Translators' folder inside the 'Claris' folder." [This trick works in 3.06; I can't comment on previous versions. I think more translators are available from third parties like DataViz.]
Use Expose to Open Files Quickly
Looking for an easy way to drag a file into a hidden application? First enter Expose's All Windows mode by hitting F9, then hover over an application's window while dragging your file, pause for a moment (or press the Space bar) and that window will spring to the foreground enabling you to open the file within that application.
