Please see the attached two screenshots. The first one is from our daughter's Mac, and it shows that with Cmd-Opt-A she can copy to the clipboard or to MS Word.

The second is from my computer. I can only save to clipboard.

How can I get the other option also? More importantly, since I usually use Nisus Writer Pro, how can I get it to paste right into NWP?

Thanks!

was MS Word open on you computer at the time?  I think the button only appears if a supported word processor is open.  If more than one is open, Accordance will guess which one is the one you want, but there's no way to tell it to choose the other.

 

The Accordance folks may need to add support for NWP.  I don't have NWP to test.

That's it! Thank you very much. Actually WORD has to be opened before you launch Accordance, since I started WORD after Accordance, and the WORD option still did not show up. But when I then closed and re-opened Accordance, it did. But Nisus Writer Pro was open also, and Accordance didn't offer it. Imagine that! Not offering a real Mac word processor the rights to your text, but offering it to Microsoft Word for Mac!  ;)

Interesting.  I opened Pages after opening Accordance, and Pages showed up on the button, even though NeoOffice was opened first (and showed up as an option before I had Pages open).
