Overview

Nisus Writer Pro is a powerful multilingual word processor, similar to its entry level products, but brings new features such as table of contents, indexing, bookmarks, widow and orphan control, cross references, line numbering, and text wrap around images.

Familiar Classic features are also on board, like attribute-sensitive find and replace, an upgraded Nisus macro language, and glossaries.

We have also improved a number of existing features. For example, we've added a variety of additional options to control the display of notes. Footnotes can now also span across pages.

I use it every day in conjunction with TextSoap https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/8974/textsoap to create PDF news summaries and PDF "work books" with wide margins for use with an iPad and Apple Pencil.

@ Frankeed from 25 October 2018 –– This is incorrect. Nisus makes it as easy as possible to install whatever version you like. Just go to Past Versions and download the version you want. <https://nisus.com/pro/versions.php> Every Mac User has Time Machine. Installing new software without having a Time Machine backup amounts to playing Russian Roulette.

@bobembry I'm surprised to see you are using TextSoap with Nisus. Everything TextSoap does Nisus can do too! I stopped using TextSoap when I realized this.

It feels like it took forever to get dark mode, but it's a really nice dark mode. I've always loved the speed of Nisus, particularly compared to its MS behemoth cousin. The overall layout and approach of Nisus just makes it a joy to work with.

I've used this for many years. The newest version has attractive features, but I'm not willing to upgrade until I see a dark mode version. Pages has it; so can this.

By far the best word processor, and I have used it for years. Had to quit it a few months ago because I must work on my texts also while travelling, which means having to use an iPad. The day the (very good, perfectly reliable) developers of Nisus will succeed in giving us a IOS version, I will be simply happy to buy it and go back to Nisus for Mac
(Oh, I am still on the latest v. 2)

Note that if you download the 15-day demo of the version 3, it overwrites your Nisus v2, leaving you in a bit of a bind should you not decide to purchase it and not have a Time Machine backup to restore it from. I hate it when software companies do this.
