Re: On-screen background colour

At least I now know that it is not a general problem. I wrote to Mellel support some days ago, but have yet to receive a reply.

Re: On-screen background colour

The problem occurs with all files, old and new. And changing the colour makes no difference.

On-screen background colour

I recently updated from Mellel 4.2.6 to 4.2.7, and now the on-screen background colour set in the Document Setup dialogue no longer works. That is to say, the background colour remains unchanged in the Document Setup dialogue, but it is not reflected in any documents. I have always had the backgroun...

Re: How do Mellel users take notes?

This is a rather large topic, but you might find Hook interesting, especially if you want to take notes on Mellel files:

Re: Mellel + ePub - your thoughts and requests

I would like to second the comments by Icelander. And I would also like to reiterate (yet again) my wish that Mellel would support Indic scripts.

Re: Feature request: Antidote integration

There does not seem to be any trial version of Antidote available, and so I am curious to know whether it is really worth what would seem to be quite an exorbitant price.

Re: footnote format request and another

I remember asking for the same footnote option some years ago, but unfortunately it still hasn't eventuated. I add the parenthesis manually, but it would certainly be nice not to have to do so.

Not necessarily. For example, Nisus has the option to Do Nothing on activation.

This would seem to be a serious bug. I have since gone back to the previous version of Mellel, and hyphenation is displaying properly again.

Re: Mellel 3.4 is Here!

Since updating to Mellel 3.4 (on OS 10.9) hyphenation no longer works (and, yes, the paragraph style is properly set for hyphenation). Files that previously opened with hyphenation displaying now open without hyphenation. Has anyone else had this problem? If there is no fix, I suppose I will have to...

Re: Importing from Scrivener to Mellel 3.3 strips formatting

I have experienced the same problem and would also appreciate a solution. It happens not just when compiling and exporting from Scrivener, but also when simply copying from Scrivener to Mellel (and, no, I am not inadvertently pasting as plain text). The odd thing is that this problem does not occur ...

Re: New implementation of Find

I suppose I didn't really understand what Scroll to Selection is supposed to do. What I would like is a keyboard shortcut to switch the focus (cursor) from the Find strip back to the document.

Re: New implementation of Find

In the Find window, after having typed in a search term and pressed Return to initiate the search, I then either select Scroll to Selection from the Find submenu or press Cmd+J, but nothing happens. I am assuming that I should be taken to the search term in the document.
