Important Warning

Do not run Nvu directly from the disk image (the *.dmg file you just opened) or you will experience a never-ending loop.
If you accidentally launched Nvu from the disk image on MacOS X, and you
now have a bouncing icon that won't go away. How do you stop it?
Use the Activity Monitor utility to kill the process:
Click the "face" icon in the Dock (typically the leftmost icon) to bring up a Finder window.

  1. Select "Applications" from the icon list in the left part of the window
  2. Open the directory "Utilities" in the right pane
  3. Launch the application "Activity Monitor"
  4. Select the Nvu process
  5. Use the "Quit Process" button in the upper left to kill it.
