Nisus Writer Pro

Multilingual word processor with indexing.

Nisus Writer Pro 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.

@ 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 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.

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.

Always impressive. Support unfortunatly slow and via email only. However I have used it since it first came out and it is amazing! Huge alternative to Word. However if you do not like RTF files you could be disappointed because RTF is the primary format.

One of the best word processes indeed. Simple enough to just use; powerful enough to do all kinds of amazing things. Paragraph and character styles are superbly implemented, and very fast and easy to use. Power search is amazing: you can find every instances of bold italic 12-point Arial text in a book-length document *simultaneously,* then apply a character or paragraph style to all those instances with one click. Interchangeability with Word documents is excellent. Book manuscript with hundreds of comments and tracked changes transfer smoothly. As an editor, I use power search + styles to quickly fix and standardize other people's badly formatted Word documents, including book-length manuscripts. What would take hours in another program takes minutes using power search and NWP's styles. And I've only begun to explore the powerful features of this delightful program. If you want Microsoft Word's power features without its bugs and clunky styles interface… if you work with people who use Word but don't want to use it yourself… if you loved and miss WriteNow or FrameMaker… then you will probably enjoy and appreciate Nisus Writer Pro.

It's a nice word processor, and while your text will be rendered nicely on a retina screen (courtesy of Apple - not the developer) the user interface elements (toolbars, icons, the controls in the palette) are non-retina, so they look pixelated and chunky. C'mon, it's 2017, Retina macs have been out for 5 years now!

I write novels and other long, organised texts, and this is by far the best software I found for the task. Not "very" but "pretty" easy to understand and use. Not perfect, I am afraid, when you try to move an item in the TOC so that it moves also in the context. I experienced more than one mess. Text and formatting got completely garbled, and going back was not so easy. But for the rest I am perfectly happy with it.
Ah, I was forgetting. Exporting as .epub is a breeze!

Do like it but it still can't print 3x5 cards without a hassle. (It appears that it can't remember Landscape and Portrait for this size.)
