Nisus Writer Express 3.3.2 and Nisus Writer Pro 1.4.1

Nisus Software has released maintenance updates for the increasingly powerful word processors Nisus Writer Pro and Nisus Writer Express. Both updates focus on bug fixes, with the Pro version also receiving an improved file importer that uses the OpenOffice 3.2 code (the company has also made a faster Intel-only file importer). Bugs addressed in Nisus Writer Pro 1.4.1 include one that prevented files from saving after Apple’s Make Link contextual menu item had been used, one that caused the program to hang when tables were used in endnotes, one that would cause the Underline keyboard shortcut to become ineffective after relaunching the program, and one that
caused crashes triggered by certain RTF lists emitted by Apple. A full list of changes is available on Nisus Software’s Web site. ($79 new, $45 upgrade, free update, 151 MB)

Nisus Writer Express 3.3.2 has a nearly identical list of changes, and also addresses a bug that caused the program’s document icons to appear blank for users working exclusively with Nisus Writer Express. ($45 new, $30 upgrade, free update, 52 MB)
