Re: How can I stop Mellel from defaulting to Helvetica?

Hi Dave, I have created a document template Yes, that's the right way to go. *Save* it as template (see File menu), then execute the New menu command from the File menu (or press Command n). Your template should appear under Custom Templates. Can you see it there? If yes, then go to Mellel Preferenc...

Re: Finding broken references

How do I search to find all instances of where some reference has broken Enable "Virtual targets" in the Reference Palette and then click on the "Next Reference" button (it's the one with the circle and the downwards arrow.) Pressing the button will take you to all cross-references that have lost t...

Re: Keyboard shortcut or menu item to create numbered or bulleted lists?

There is no menu option for choosing whether to use a bulleted list or a numbered list Styles > Edit style sets… Click on the List button In the small upcoming window you'll see Bullet Numbered Harvard Click on "Bullet" and drag it down below "Numbered". It should now look like this: Numbered Bulle...

Re: Copy Citation (Bookends)

All is well again, but the problem may arise again, perhaps after an update of the operating system, Mellel, or Bookends.
Any update on this? Has the problem reared its ugly head again?

Re: Order of items in Table of Contents

Is there place to specify that, instead, all figures should come out together
Paul, if I select 'Figure Caption' in the "Title flows list" and then enable the small button on the right side called "List as separate section in TOC", I get all figures listed together in the TOC.

Re: Is there an easier way to crossreference a figure?

Instead of Insert -> cross reference -> insert reference..., you can also just click on the Reference toolbar button. If I understand you correctly, you want to write, for example: See figure 1 on page 14. Every time I […] have to do: Insert -> cross reference -> insert reference... then in the dial...

Re: Apple Color Emojis

Really interesting!

The colored flags are rendered with two letters, i.e. the US American flag is displayed as US, the English flag as GB, and so forth.
If I export the Mellel document as PDF, the flags are shown as two letters, and everything else is invisible.

Re: F3 keyboard shortcut not working

Hello Rich, I guess you are using a font that has no italic. An example for such a font is Lucida Grade. Unlike Nisus, which activates or produces a "fake" italic by such fonts, Mellel doesn't do this. Change the font to Times (or any other font with genuine italic) and see if that solves the problem.

Re: Bibliography insists in being placed in a new page

I see you have got *two* breaks: a section break (which is created after the last character in the document when you scan it. That is normal) and a line break which I don't get when I scan my test document. Why does your document end with a line break (instead of Return)?

Re: Bibliography insists in being placed in a new page

The difference between my Esilo do parágrafo Bibliografia and your Esilo is that Margens Origem by me is 21 pt. "Também na parte superior da pág/col" is NOT enabled by me. Under "Manter opções" 'Manter linhas juntas is NOT enabled by me. I don't know whether this is of any relevance here, but you co...

Re: Bibliography insists in being placed in a new page

Now the whole thing is subordinate to the introduction, which is very weird in my view. I thought I had found the solution, but you are right, something is rotten here. By me the chapters and sub-chapters are subordinate to the Introduction in the Outline, but the Conclusion and the References are ...

Not by me. I'll upload a test document for you later today so you can take a close look at it.

Re: Bibliography insists in being placed in a new page

The way I've worked around this is by creating a tag flow for these chapters […] I'm going crazy with these. Can anybody help me? Use Auto-Title Heading 1 for Introduction, Conclusions and References. Make sure the setting for Format , TOC format and Outline format has only 'Title' (no number.) For...

Re: ALLCAPS character attribute does not export to .rtf

ALLCAPS case setting (either with styles or with character formatting) is not coming across.
Neither All Caps nor Small Caps come across.
