All text in italics on Ipad version of document

Greetings! I'm a long-time (12 years?!) Mellel user and recently got the iPad app so that I can easily access current projects on the road. I notice that if I create a document on my office/home iMac and safe it to the iCloud drive that when I open that document on the iPad all the text is italic an...

Re: Using and changing mentions in headers

I included a page- and a page-style break between the change in running headers and—presto!—works perfectly. Sending my Mellel love!

Using and changing mentions in headers

Dearest Mellel Sisters and Brothers, I have a document (a thematic inventory of a composer's works) during which I would like to change the level of mentions in the running headers. Is that possible? For example: the first part of the document I would like to use level 2 auto-titles in the header—so...

Re: Preserving auto-title format in template

Thanks. Funnily enough, I simply saved a new template and it worked perfectly. I must confess that my old template was from a few years ago, so perhaps their was some dissonance between versions. At any rate, it's all working beautifully now.

Best wishes,

B.

Preserving auto-title format in template

Dear Mellel Wisdom, When I save a template (I name by style or publisher style) it seems to preserve everything except auto-title formats. For example: When I open up my OUP template all the character and paragraphs attributes are there, but when I go to add, say, a subheading from the auto-title me...

Re: Mellel Can't Save Document

What a pity that there is no apparent solution to this problem. Being able to save a document is important.

Ran a disc check. It's fine.

Re: Mellel Can't Save Document

Well, there is around 90 gig of free space and the document is about 45mb, so I doubt that's it. My CD drive is broken, so I can't really run a disk check.

Mellel Can't Save Document

I'm using Mellel 3.0.1 (build 2) on my iMac (just a few years old) running 10.6.8. I'm editing a book (!) about 400 pages long and now get, fairly frequently, an error from Mellel that the document cannot be saved. I also get, every so often, some kind of graphic breakdown where the text and/or page...

No longer able to change Mellel icon

This is a minor bug fix. After the most recent Mellel update (3.0.1 build 2) I can no longer change the Mellel icon by choosing 'get info' and pasting in my favourite typewriter icon.

Small beer, I know…

Thanks!

Re: lodging a complaint (Mellel too complicated!)

Well, I'll dissent. I think there are a few issues to deal with. First, I don't find Word any simpler (in fact I find it baffling, but that brings me to second point). Second, Mellel is aimed at academics and once you get a few template documents and your own styles in place it makes working so much...

Re: Mellel 3.0 dictionary/language changing on its own

I've tried all of these solutions and it keeps switching from UK to US English.

Mellel 3.0 dictionary/language changing on its own

Loving the new version—fantastic stuff. A slight irritation is that the language pop-up menu on the handsome new palette keeps changing to USA English. Is there a way to stop this?

Best,

Re: Space between running header and text

Thanks for that. I checked it all as you suggested, but no change to the problem. I did manage to fix it and that was by changing the font size for the reference symbol to 10-point font, from 12.

Many thanks.
