Re: Footnotes at the Bottom of Page, Not Section

footnotes […] appear mid-page, at the end of a section, rather than at the bottom of the page. How can I fix this? Seems Mellel users have been waiting already 12 years for this to be fixed. See the last post in this thread: http://forum.mellel.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1121&start=15 You should write...

how does one style a text box? If I wanted to do this manually?
You can't apply style(s) directly to the text box itself, but you can select the text *in* the text box and then assign style(s) to it .

Re: Footnotes in the right margin?

Hello Beck, Congratulations! You are the first member who has managed to send a screenshot in this forum! At least yours is the only one I have ever seen. It used to be generally accepted that it was not possible. I asked a question regarding screenshots two years ago after having tried unsuccessful...

Re: Using/Printing comments

Hi Janet, This is interesting and thanks for drawing my attention to this. I see now that you are right. Using Nisus as my daily word processor, I assumed Track Changes and Comments would be displayed in two different panes (or columns), but Mellel seems to follow Word here, which also has Track Cha...

Re: Using/Printing comments

OK, I found it: you turn off comments by deactivating Track Changes Just to clarify and prevent misunderstanding: In Mellel lingo "Track Changes" are not the same as "Comments." Comments are the yellow annotations which reside in the Annotations Pane. You are talking about "Track Changes". At least...

Re: Double-spacing between footnotes

it would be nice to get more precision on this
I agree. Although points allow maximal flexibility in setting the paragraph spacing, it makes sense to have additionally "Lines" as an option in the 'Note text style' pane.
Should we contact Redler with this as a feature request?

Re: Double-spacing between footnotes

If I had entered more text in the footnotes I would have realized that you're right. Sorry about that. Actually, I think this is lastly just an academic question because it's pretty easy, I think, to guess how many points corresponds to one line, based on how the text and the footnotes appear on scr...

Re: Double-spacing between footnotes

Hi Joseph, My problem is that I'm not sure how to compare the units in which the spacing for the body of the text is specified You can use the same unit for both. For the footnotes you choose "Note text style" having Line spacing: Lines and Amount 2. Look at the screenshots here: http://www.mediafir...

Re: How to use Story Points in non-fictional documents?

What do you mean by "inserts"? It would be nice if you could describe your method in more detail.

What do you enter into the fields Points, Characters, Locations, Date & Time, Remarks?

Re: From Latex to Mellel: need some help

Hello ‪AcquaDom, It took me quite a while to do this in Mellel. In Nisus Writer Pro it took me exactly 10 seconds to set this up, and I'm not exaggerating. In Mellel, look for the "Default numbered" Auto-title set up. You can use that as a kind of template. I think "Default numbered" came with Melle...

Re: Extra line of spaces inserted in Bibliography

If you are getting empty lines after a reference in the bibliography, I would first check the Format Manager in Bookends. Does an empty line always follow a certain Reference Type (Book, Edited Book, Journal article, etc.) or does this happen randomly? An empty line could represent an empty field in...
