Re: Watermark feature

There's a wok-around for this which I often use:
-- prepare a file with your watermark
-- in the page palette select Background, image, and the file you prepared
-- choose the position and opacity that works best for you

Re: Adding hyperlink and also column in table in Mellel iOS

Adding a column is easy -- you have two options 1. select a column in you table click on the table palette click on the option wheel in the lower left select either add column before or add column after this adds just one column at a time 2. select the table observe the two buttons below the table c...

Re: Add row

Raymond, I also posted a query about this problem.

Adding just one row at a time really slows me down.

The only option that does work is adding multiple rows at the end of a table which is no solution for large tables.

Re: Can i join two tables together in 4.2?

There is probably a more elegant way to do this, but here's what I found: Say, the second table is four lines long -- select the first table, click on the edit button at the bottom and increase the number of lines by four -- select the second table; select and copy all of its contents -- select the ...

Re: Nitpick: adding rows to tables

Thanks, but this doesn't provide an answer to my question.

I want to add a number of rows after (or before) an existing row -- not at the end of the table.

Nitpick: adding rows to tables

Friends

If I want to add a row to an existing table I click on the option circle in the table pallet and select Add row after [or before]
but
If I want to add a number of rows . . . haven't found a way to do this except one at a time.

What am I missing?

Re: 4.2 tables: missing option

Excellent!

But isn't it a bit weird that the center text button doesn't also center tables?

4.2 tables: missing option

Friends, I'm enjoying discovering all the options in the new version 4.2 tables, but I'm missing one that's important to me: center the table on the page. I've tried to use the text centering button on the menu bar, but tables ignores it. Of course, I can center manually by clicking on the left-hand...

Re: writing direction

Wow
You are correct -- I never noticed that before -- I'd say this is a bug.

You should notify the developers support at redlers.com

Re: Footnotes in the right margin?

No, sections aren't an answer yo beck's request -- that will happen only once the Redlers implement flow-through [the chief improvement request many of us have for Sections]. Today, sections function only as columns: column 1 on page 1 flows to column 2 on page 1 and then to column 1 on page 2, colu...

Re: writing direction

And, one more thought, Raymond: when you open a new document from a template, it has a defined direction. File/Document Setup/Binding Direction. I have templates defined for English documents (binding direction L2R) and for Hebrew documents (R2L). There is no need for Mellel to "sense" the direction...

Re: writing direction

I'm not entirely sure that would be a good idea. First, I have a lot of complaints about the way Mail mixes R2L and L2R text. Second, I often need to start a R2L or L2R document with text in the opposite direction. For example, a Biblical quote in Hebrew followed by a discussion in English. Finally,...

Re: Using/Printing comments

This is helpful but .... 1. if several of us are working together on a document using Track Changes, each gets a different color and the Comments get lost in shuffle. 2. Yes, saving the change history separately is an option. Though this may also get messy if the document ends up going through sever...

Re: Using/Printing comments

Yes it's all very confusing since track changes and comments both appear in the annotation plane and both appear/disappear as the plane is tuned on and off. And, if I'm not mistaken, both use in the same yellow. What I would like to be able to do -- as far as I can tell this can't be done -- is to p...
