Feature request: Text wrap around tables

There really needs to be a way to wrap text around a table in the same fashion that you wrap text around pictures. That is required for a lot of scientific writing.

Another table layout question

I need to create a landscape formatted table in the middle of a large portrait formatted document.
How do you change the orientation of a single page?

Re: Add row

The issue I have with the add a row function is that the added row does not match the format of the table (if it has been modified from default) the row is whatever the default table is set for. It would be far easier if the add a row command copied all the formatting of the row that you're in when ...

That button centers the text in the cells of the table

Re: Feature request: Text wrap around table

This is still the most important missing capability in Mellel for me at least. Wrapping text around small tables just like you wrap text around small images. I have many tables that are 3" wide by 2"-6" tall. Not being able to wrap text around that table leaves me with half blank pages.

Tables and 4.2 changes to come

I use tables a lot and I'm looking forward to the announced changes coming in 4.2. That said, I use Mellel as a note book and I have a relatively huge document that has 100+ tables. The new version will be fully backward compatible, right?

I was just working and had your basic omg moment...

Right arrow and tab stops

Okay this is odd. I use the four arrows for moving about a document quite a bit. The up, down & left arrows work like you would expect. The right arrow doesn't. It can't get past a tab stop. It's like it hits a wall. Is this just my computer or is this a bug? It is version 4.1.3b1 on OS 10.13.6.

Re: Merge several documents in one

I don't want to link the documents. I want to copy and paste from one into another. I can do the text just fine but it doesn't move the images and as they are all floating images edited in Mellel going back to the original images and placing & editing them one by one is a royal pain.

Re: Merge several documents in one

Is this still the case? Is there any way to drop an entire file (text, images, tables) into another file as a chapter?

Feature request: Text wrap around table

It would be very helpful to be able to wrap text around tables in the same fashion as around images.

Text wrap around table

Is it possible to have text wrap around a small table? Or have an image next to a table?

And the forum search engine really doesn't like the word table....

Re: iCloud...

More on the whole iCloud thing. I'm thinking this is more Apple sandboxing but it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. I've got a couple computers one running 10.9.5 and the other running 10.10.idon'tremember. Both machines have Mellel 3.3.8. Why can't the 10.10 machine see the files the 10.9.5 ...

Re: On 10.9 Mellel crashes on start

I'm getting a new MacBook in a couple of days that will be running OS 10.9.

Does Mellel work as I need to be typing immediately.

Really basic words on a page typing, no interfacing with other programs or anything but I need to keep writing.
