Re: Mellel Freezing / Locking Up

Well, it's cleared up a bit. I've rebooted multiple times and installed the latest version of Mellel, and then I let it take an extremely long time to open and then again to open my doc and then again to save the doc after I made changes. After that, it seems to be working close to normal.

Mellel Freezing / Locking Up

Ever since updating my OS to 10.13.4, Mellel has refused to work. Most of the time it freezes simply when opening, and other times it freezes when trying to save changes, therefore rendering it useless. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve this issue? I'm working on a time-sensitive pr...

Re: RtL paragraph orientation -- style set question

This thread is 8 years old, but yet I still have the same problem as the one described here. Has this issue ever been addressed?

Re: New problem with 3.5.3 (Next Style broken)

Thanks for the reply and for the information regarding reporting bugs. I have not been able to repeat this problem since I started working on my first document after the upgrade. It seems it was a temporary issue.

New problem with 3.5.3 (Next Style broken)

I was so excited to update to 3.5.3 to fix the palette toggle in full-screen mode! However, I immediately noticed a problem when I began working. I inserted a quotation and formatted it using my Quotation style and then hit return. Rather than going to my default next style (Body), it was stuck usin...

Re: No palettes in full screen?

I have the exact same problem as Megan and miles11. I'm running OSX 10.12.4 with Mellel from Kagi (latest version - 3.5.2b2).

Re: No palettes in full screen?

FYI - I just upgraded to a new MacBook Pro running Sierra (OSX 10.12.1) and I can't get my palettes to show in full screen mode without using the menu command: Window > Palettes > Toggle Palettes. The shortcut doesn't work at all in full screen mode. It WORKS PERFECTLY, however, if I am NOT in full ...

Change Default Marker Colors?

I've searched through the forum for an answer to this question, because I thought it would be something people would haven't been asking ages ago, but I can't find a topic on it. Here's my question: Is there any way to change the default colors for markers? The default colors are too stark. I would ...

Freezing on Launch

I have an issue where Mellel (3.5.2) will randomly freeze on launch. Sometimes I can get it to restart (after a few attempts), and sometimes not. Today I can't get it to start up at all. It just hangs and never finishes booting. I'm running OSX 10.11.6 on a late 2008 MacBook Pro with 6GB of RAM. Any...

Re: Recurring spinning beach ball problems

Thanks, but I don't think my post and the previous post are related. First, my files are very small (the largest one I've tried opening is 225KB). Also, my HD is pretty new - just a few months old (and it's a hybrid drive, which is pretty quick). Last, it even happens when I try to open a 15KB file....

Recurring spinning beach ball problems

I am running the latest Mellel (3.5.1b2). I've been using Mellel for years and have never had much of a problem with it at all. All of the sudden today, however, I'm having all kinds of problems. Just about any time I try to do something (open Mellel, cut text, open a new doc, etc.) I get a spinning...

Re: Strange Printing Problem (Scaling Issue)

Pretty sure this is related to Mellel trying to print comments (which were deleted). Is there any way to turn off the printing of comments?

Re: What's next for Mellel 3.4?

#1 - Better import/export for .docx format. It is nearly impossible to send accurate proofs which contain RTL text to PC users outside of PDF format. #2 - Cascading styles. This just makes sense and would save a ton of work for the user. #3 - Minimize Palettes option. The Adobe products are a perfec...
