Good news for Mac users who want more choice of word processors:

Nisus Software today announces Nisus Writer Pro, an advanced, yet easy to use word processor.

Building on the core of the highly successful Nisus Writer Express, Nisus Writer Pro brings new features such as Table of Contents, Cross References, Bookmarks, Text Wrap Around Images, Widow and Orphan Control, and Line Numbering. Classic Nisus Writer users will remember such features as attribute sensitive Find and Replace, Glossaries, and many, many additions to the Nisus Macro Language.

“This is the major upgrade we have promised our customers” says Jerzy Lewak, president and CEO of Nisus Software, Inc. “Classic Nisus Writer users will recognize that Nisus Writer Pro has most of the best features they have come to depend on plus more, which should be a pleasant surprise.”

Nisus Writer Pro will be available in late Winter/early Spring 2007. Pricing will be announced at that time.

System Requirements

G3 (or better), Intel-based Macs

Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later (Mac OS X 10.4 recommended)

I believe I’ve used just about every form of Nisus since it first appeared on a Mac — at least since I first knew about the program — and it is an amazing piece of software. Check out the preview Web pages and you’ll see that there’s a lot of functionality available. It’ll be interesting to see how the Pro version works, how it interacts with Microsoft Word and whether and how it’ll handle the “.DocX” format of Windows-based Microsoft Office 2007.

All that is for the future. For now, I’m happy there’s a new Nisus on the horizon.
