Re: What's next for Mellel 3.4?

I would like to see some sort of feature explicitly dedicated to making Mellel work seamlessly on multiple computers. If I had the option to keep things like style sets sync'ed across installs, that would be extremely helpful, either in iCloud (and thus only for Mac App Store versions :roll: ) or vi...

Re: Mellel 3.0, ML, and a Retina Macbook - Crash on Save

Apple *still* hasn't released 3.0.1, but since I updated OS X to 10.8.1, I haven't had the crash on save. Anyone else?

Re: Why is iCloud support MAS only?

I recently re-purchased/upgraded Mellel through the Mac App Store, and yet my copy does not appear to support iCloud. I infer that iCloud is not supported by the greyed-out text "iCloud not enabled" in the File menu. What am I doing wrong? Did you enable iCloud in System Preferences? Thanks for you...

Re: Why is iCloud support MAS only?

I resent Apple's attitude. Sounds like Dropbox + Mellel for me. I wouldn't. I think there are reasonable implementation-related reasons that they want to have some oversight over applications that use the iCloud document storage features. After all, we'll all hold them responsible if something goes...

Re: lodging a complaint (Mellel too complicated!)

EDIT: How embarrassing — I just noticed that what I proposed below more or less already exists. (When was that added?) As you were... I wonder if an easy way to make Mellel easier to use for new users might be to provide more than one default style set. The current default is not really appropriate ...

Re: Mellel 2.9 is just about here...

Hi, August 15th is almost over in Germany now ... Ah, and in the AppStore it says that Mellel is "expected" on August 17th. Mellel's homepage still says August 15th. Who is right? You realize that Apple reviews things in the App Store, so the precise release time might not be under the Redlers' con...

I noted this in another thread: I updated to Lion, and Mellel seems fine.

Re: Now that Lion is out…

Just to reiterate: this is pretty important for us all to know, and soon. That said, having gone ahead impetuously and upgraded to Lion, I can add a data point for all of you that Mellel works as before, at least on the one fairly simple document I've worked on. The new scrollbars are even attractiv...

Re: Feature request: change .mellel to something shorter

Here's an article that may explain to you what is going on here, and how you can email such files. This arrangement is by no means limited to Mellel. http://paininthetech.com/2007/10/21/mac-os-x-bundles/ Also, OS X, like all Unixes, can handle arbitrary extension lengths. The OS uses all kinds of th...

Re: Bug? Random crashes when I press F5

Unsanity is beginning to acquire a bit of a reputation for their use of what are called "Input Managers." Cf. the debate about Sandvox's crash reporter a year or two back.

Re: Wishlist 2008

Thanks and praise to the Redlers, looking forward to 2.5. My requests: true language modes at the level of character style/variation, which would handle spellcheck, typographic features, etc. variable width columns; in general, better columnar functions. ability to separate footnotes with a tab, rat...

Umm, keep text styling the way it is, please. It is the best thing about this word processor.
