Nisus Writer Pro 1.2 patch
Nisus has released a v1.2 update to Writer Pro, its flagship word processing software. Pro differentiates itself from Express with features such as comments, mail merges, and the ability to create indexes and tables of contents. New to v1.2 is an upgraded import component, said to improve the accuracy of file translations, particularly in terms of Microsoft Word documents.
Similarly, export options have been expanded to include Word files, as well as the Open Document format made popular by OpenOffice. Separate changes include auto-updating time stamps, document fields such as author, company and copyright, and a new "Macroize" menu. The Table of Contents feature has meanwhile been tweaked with interface enhancements.
Writer Pro runs on Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and is $80 new, or $45 as an upgrade from Express. The v1.2 patch is free for existing Pro owners.
