Reference in Index record - inconsistant see/see also

Hi, I spotted what seems to be an inconsistent behavior in generating an index with references inside an index record. Mellel's manual says that, when generating the index, it will automatically choose between "see" and "see also" in formatting the reference. - a "See" prefix is used when the refere...

Quick Index doesn't search into citations

Hi, while using Quick Index to insert Index marks for authors cited in the manuscript, I realized that the search pane finds all places where an authors appears except into citation objects. This is a strange behavior since the find/replace tool searches within citation objects. I tried with/without...

Adding index records: an automated way?

Hi, I'm trying to create indexes for my next book, and I was wondering if there would be any way to add records with a preexisting list. For instance, I've got the list of all authors cited. In MS Word, there is a possibility to import this list from a distinct file, and the index tool will create a...

Re: Manuscript for publication: doc, PDF and InDesign?

Manu: I'm hoping to use Mellel more, but expecting to use it about the same, for the reasons given here. I wanted to add a bit of nuance to what I wrote before. I think that the problem for academics is more complex than I said. Plenty of academic publishers are happy with text that has very basic ...

Re: Manuscript for publication: doc, PDF and InDesign?

This is a serious problem, for all the reasons mentioned here. People have been complaining about it for years. I have a clunky workaround which I haven't tried, but which should work. Attach to each character style a feature you don't use. For example, edit character style 1 to have a yellow backg...

Re: Manuscript for publication: doc, PDF and InDesign?

I see that we are all expecting to use Mellel MORE, which says a lot about the quality of this software and the enjoyment it provides to its users, but also points to the possibility of its improvement… In the meantime, nicka, you confirm that I have a painful time ahead of me. Thanks for your contr...

Re: Manuscript for publication: doc, PDF and InDesign?

Thanks Sani for your comment. I completely agree. I asked Ori some time ago about this limitation in export options (it was before I experienced how poor it is) and he answered that his goal was to bring Mellel to a point where it would include publication features, so that publishers could use Mell...

Re: Manuscript for publication: doc, PDF and InDesign?

Thanks ealvarez,

I had a look to InDesign documentation but couldn't find anything about an import from a PDF file. This makes sense when considering what a PDF file is, but it's unfortunate.

Manuscript for publication: doc, PDF and InDesign?

Hello Everyone, I've completed a manuscript with Mellel and I can say, it has been a real pleasure to work with this software. The document is 2 millions characters long with 1.600 footnotes, many bibliographic references or cross-references, and Mellel performed incredibly well. I enjoyed the fact ...

Re: How to locate an applied PARAGRAPH style?

Thanks for your answer. However, "Replace styles" is a step beyond what I want to do, which is basically to locate where the styles I want to replace are active, in order to know where my document will be affected when I replace the style. The search and replace function allows this for character st...

How to locate an applied PARAGRAPH style?

Hi, I do not understand how a text can be found according to its paragraph style. I see in the Manual that to find a text according to its character style, you open "Find and replace", then apply the character attributes you're looking for in the find text box. However this doesn't work with paragra...

Re: find/replace punctuation mark (apostrophe)

Thanks a lot Icelander for the tip. You were right. The problem came from the fact that, preparing the find/replace Action, I pasted into the text box the invisible character associated with the apostrophe.
Problem solved. Thanks again for your help.
Hace a nice day.

find/replace punctuation mark (apostrophe)

Hi there, I'm revising a manuscript in French which has many reference titles in English imported from an English source. In English, apostrophe is rendered using the "apostrophe" unicode punctuation mark ('APOSTROPHE Unicode: U+0027, UTF-8: 27), like : Aristotle ' s Distinction In French, in order ...

For anyone interested, here is the way to fix spellchecking when using multiple languages in a document: - go to Mellel Preference>Language - For each language selected in the left list, select on the right:...
