Nisus Writer Express 4.0

Nisus Software has released Nisus Writer Express 4.0, a major update to the flexible and affordable sibling to Nisus Writer Pro (see this comparison of the two apps) with over 200 new features, fixes, and enhancements. Palettes have been improved in a variety of ways and can now float freely instead of being relegated to a drawer, Draft View’s full-screen mode sports an auto-displaying options bar featuring the main menu, and typewriter scrolling optionally keeps the selection a specified distance down the page while typing.

The release also adds support for cloud sync (via iCloud or Dropbox) of nearly all settings; enables editing of footnotes, endnotes, and section notes at the end of Draft View; improves the progress display when creating a PDF or printout; adds word count, character count, and/or paragraph count to the status bar; and supports copy-and-paste to multi-part selections. Nisus Writer Express costs $26 with a free 15-day trial, and upgrades are $20 from any previous version. ($26 new with a 25% discount for TidBITS members from Nisus Software and the Mac App Store, $20 upgrade, 71.2 MB, release notes, 10.11+)
