The trial will not open - crashes immediately and repeatedly (10.7.3, Mac Pro)
Be interesting to see what this does when it opens.

I have some real issues with this software. I may be doing something catastrophic and so won't rate at the moment.
Importing my bookmarks from the Safari-exported file... After 35 mins 10 bookmarks (out of 1000+) were imported; drag and drop does not work. Pins appears to be ready to accept a drop but nothing happens. Synchronising bookmarks... Have only managed to get 13 into the system and when asked to synchronise with my DropBox folder, after 10 mins it is still processing... Meaning it's probably hung.
Any advice on getting this to do basic Mac things (drag and drop, import, synchronise) would be welcomed. If nothing is possible this may not be ready for release.

Works straight out of the box as promised. Will save much time as I swap between projects, each with different docs and apps open.

This is a piece of software with immense promise. The APP store is selling v2 which (unfortunately) is very buggy-crashes and the POST javascript isn't totally sound (with respect to sqlite). Unfortunately there doesn't seem any way of getting direct support other than the not too often reviewed forum. I wonder whether the release of 1.1.7 is because of the problems with 2?

Anyhow - early days and one would be hopeful they can get it working properly soon as this could be a staple when stable.

Does the Mac version now allow building standalones for Mac AND windows or do you still have to buy /upgrade both versions to do that?

We stopped using it because it became a monster of money grabbing over function (now use Revolution), but I have to convert some old files from v9 to a newer version of win and Mac.

Any insights here appreciated (needless to say the local rep didn't have a clue).

I was sitting in a clinic today using my iphone to calculate each patient's BMI with the calculator. slow.... I thought $2.50 is a cup of coffee and will be easier. It works quickly as one might expect and is great for the hybrid culture that knows their weight in Kg but for some reason still does their height in inches.

I had a meltdown with M$ Word on a Macbook and I just can't get it to run (bound to be font corruption, but alas can't fix it). I have Mellel which is quite nice but it doesn't work smoothly in terms of importing the lingua frnca (M$ word files). Nisus however, opens word files as though they were native, and saves them out the same way without complicated exporting.
The only reason I ever need M$ word is when I am receiving or am required to track changes. For those occasions I open Word in windoze under parallels (runs 1000% faster than word in OSX ever did). Shuddering with relief when that's done, I return to Nisus and it does most of what i want easily.
For bibliographic databases, I use Bookends. You can set it to drop references into the Nisus doc and as the default format is rtf, Bookends can scan it quickly to make a formatted doc and bibliography; this is a 2 step process whereas Mellel is 1-step.

Still if Word compatability is needed, Nisus has it over Mellel ++; otherwise they both have something to offer.
