Nisus Writer 6.5 Adds Outlining, Document Manager -- Nisus Software joined in the holiday tradition of pushing big releases out just before the end of the year with Nisus Writer 6.5, a significant revision to the company's powerful word processor. The new outlining feature has been requested for several years; it appears to have the necessary basic outlining features, although some use will be required to see how fluid they really are. Also new is a Document Manager that's accessible from a new hierarchical Documents menu, providing fast access to your documents. Other minor changes include a slight modification in how copied paragraphs are pasted, a fix for a crashing bug that occurred when typing more than 32 characters in the Catalog window, and fixed import and export of footnotes, plus a modified Plain Text command that doesn't remove user-defined styles to be compatible with the new outline feature. For a limited time, the upgrade costs $40 for registered users of Nisus Writer (normally $50); the limited time discount also applies to new purchases ($80 versus $100) and competitive upgrades ($55 versus $70). Nisus Writer 6.5 requires a PowerPC-based Mac running Mac OS 8.5 or later (it works under Classic in Mac OS X) with at least 2 MB of available RAM. A 30-day demo is available as a 23.1 MB download.
