I've been using this since beta testing. While I miss some of the pre-X functionality, The current version Works well enough for my purposes. That is, publishing a newsletter, writing articles, books and research papers. Nisus has helped me publish two books and many short stories and articles. Since I use three "foreign" languages, Nisus becomes a necessity. I'm especially impressed on how right-to-left Hebrew is so neatly and easily (I just change keyboards and Nisus takes care of all the dreary work) inserted into the English text. I'm satisfied with the import speed and ..... but really wish they'd bring back all the indexing and stuff that was lost in moving from system 9 to X. The Macro Language is really handy at times. None of my work is done with outside input so tracking changes doesn't really matter to me, though it would be handy for marking up; the differences in different versions. Priced so reasonably you just can't pass this one up!

I love this program.

Importing other formats under snow leopard has become painfully slow b/c NWP uses PPC binaries for the importers. No longer my WP of choice as a result -- I will still use for finishing up my work (begun in Scrivener) but am seeking other solutions for viewing / editing documents in formats other than RTF. Developers are usually quite responsive but the problem with dead slow importing has been around several months now and they aren't addressing it.

Could I use this as free?

The most important for me in Nisus is that it supports secondary fonts. None of Apple app support this(Pages, Textedit, ...), and MS Office and NeoOffice just sucks. Hooray for Nisus!

Excellent, with very responsive support, a helpful user community, a robust macro language, and a non-proprietary file format (rtf). Better WordPerfect importing than NeoOffice or AbiWord (which both use libwpd). I've come to use it for nearly all of my single-authored documents - but it's missing a key feature for any collaboration: track changes.

Yippie! A very reliable and fast wp with all central features. Great!

Version 1.0 is officially released and the price is $79.

This is my favorite word processor for the Mac. I write in Scrivener and format in Nisus. Great combination.

Only available in beta at this point....not sure why v3.0 is listed.
