Re: Stop Creating New Documents. Please...

Just leave Mellel permanently open. (As though there were a reason to ever close it… :P )

Re: iOS Mellel and Dropbox?

There is a separate Dropbox API that apps can implement to get direct editing functionality (I think MS Word iOS does this). So, I think this means Mellel has to include code which deals with the Dropbox API for easy open-edit-save from Dropbox. Given how many text-editing apps apparently include t...

Re: iOS Mellel and Dropbox?

No, Mellel for iOS doesn't integrate with Dropbox. Precisely why was explained to me a while back during the beta period, thus: For some unfathomed reason Dropbox (and apparently google drive) do not provide a full storage provider service to other apps. (The same odd behaviour is exhibited with Pag...

QuickLook not working

QuickLook has not been working for Mellel 3.x for what seems like quite some time now. I just did a fresh install of v. 3.5, but still no QuickLook. What should my next step be?

Re: Feature request : lines above and below titles

If you make the title into an auto-title, you can set up the auto-title such that there is a reverse tab just before the right-hand margin. Make sure that there are no other tabs before the reverse tab. Then format the auto-title as (title)(tab). Select the (title)(tab) text to apply a character sty...

Re: trouble with unwanted repetition in citations

This is a Bookends question. But I think all you need to do is get rid of the backslashes. Anything after the @ sign will be output as is.

Re: Replacing paragraph styles with diamond prefixed

You are looking for the "Replace Styles" menu item, which is located under the "File" menu. Just make sure to select the "Paragraphs" tab (otherwise you will be replacing character styles).

It may not be a full solution, but you can already make the palette window a little smaller by choosing the "Icon only" option.

Re: Problems with a long document variable

I reported this same issue about a year ago. I submitted a bug report to the Redlers, but they told me "I'm afraid this sort of behavior is a limitation of this feature's design.Hopefully we'll be able to upgrade this in the near future but I cannot comment on when."

Re: Mellel Lite?

Another thing to note: at the moment Mellel lite is selling for $4.99 on the app store, if you purchase Mellel lite now and then upgrade to the full version you're essentially getting the full Mellel for less then $25 which is a nice deal. This is a limited time offer, the price will increase gradu...
