(1) Try to import a Word-document: Even TextEdit does it better. NWP is practically unusable for this purpose, and this is a severe drawback in a world where the MS-DOC-format is, unfortunately, a standard you are very often confronted with. What did the documents you were importing contain? I've n...

Nisus Writer Pro

Nisus Writer Pro was released today! Nisus Writer Pro New features include table of contents, indexing, widow/orphan control, expanded control over footnotes, and more. I've always been of the opinion that Nisus has the best interface and is the nicest to use out of all the OS X word processors (not...

You could always request an invite to the Skitch beta. I've heard it's pretty sweet when it comes to annotating images:

I sort of think that if I hadn't introduced an annotation system at all , less people would be bothered, and there would be very few requests for one... :) I'd request it. ;) Your system actually makes more sense to me than what I had been doing, but I use highlighting for that kind of stuff. For m...

I'm sorry to go; Scrivener is a great tool. I don't really understand why you seem to be so intractable about annotations, but it's your baby (and apparently there's other people who like this style of annotation). I just wish there were any tool out there that was appropriate for academic writing t...

Just wanted to drop a note here that I've actually stopped using Scrivener because of the annotations. I've been using Scrivener to write academic papers, and when writing such papers I do a lot of going back over the text revising as I go (and then when I have a draft I go through and make the fina...

I was a Safari/Saft user for quite a while (Firefox 1 ran too slow for me, and Saft added pretty much all the stuff that Firefox extensions did that I used regularly). Recently I discovered OmniWeb again. I'd tried it a long time ago, and it was in no way worth $30. It's come a long way, though, and...

Heh, I just started a thread about this stuff a day or two ago. Haven't had many responses, but here's what they've said so far.

Spell checkers

I recently got curious about what other spell checking solutions were available out there that could extend/improve OS X's default spellchecker (which is perfectly functional, but not particularly interesting and has a somewhat limited dictionary, particularly if you're doing academic work).  I dis...

You could always try one of the Omnic products:

OmniGraffle
Omni Outliner

I don't know if they would do what you need, but they both have trial versions.

Heh, I appear to have played gasoline to everyone else's flame. And for the record, Alexandria, I was the one who mentioned pirating. I think you can safely assume people were reacting to me rather than you. But student or not, at $35 it really just comes down to honest or dishonest, and no discount...

Is there anything that Google hasn't done?

Thanks for the sites! Those both look really promising; I shall have to explore.

P.S. As for educational discounts, I don't know about this yet. If I were charging $100 a copy, then yes, I would be doing educational discounts. But at $35? I'm not so sure. I've set the price so that anyone should be able to buy it without discounts. The price is already below what would already ...

"Writer's circle" style feedback software?

Does anyone know of a piece of software (preferably cross platform) that makes sharing written work with a small group of people and offering feedback easy to do? I suppose there's always Word's "Track Changes" but it just isn't that ideal for offering feedback to one another (and if someo...
