Re: Help with Find and Replace

Have you tried "alphanumeric" and looking specifically for footnotes? Did you try this yourself? If you did, you would have seen that this doesn't work. "Search in Footnotes" will only find text in footnotes, that is, note text. If I understand the original poster's intention correctly then he is l...

Re: Help with Find and Replace

I am trying to create a Find and Replace that moves a comma or period before a footnote/endnote number within the text. You want to move them or remove them? The superscripted note Reference symbol (in the document text) is not a Citation, therefore "Search in Citations" won't find what you want, o...

Is there a way to find and replace paragraph styles in a document?
Have you tried File –> "Replace Styles…" ?

Re: Numbering Figures

Hello ‪grebmar,
I don't know why there should be any difference.
How about using modern communication technics! :–)

Delete all text, except one or two words in each section, and then upload the file.
I can then tell you which part needs to be fixed.

I use Heading 1 for unnumbered heading because items like Preface then show up in the Outline.
Ah, now I see, that makes sense. I forgot about the Preface. :–)

Thanks for clarifying, Paul.

Re: Numbering Figures

Where Heading 1 is for unnumbered headings, Header 2 is for chapter titles I guess this (unconventional?) use of Heading 1 is confusing grebmar. I find it more straight forward to use just paragraph styles for unnumbered headings, such as Title, Appendix and such. If Heading 1 is used for Chapter 1...

Re: Hyperlinks

Hi Rob, Are you talking about text with hyperlinks you copied from a website? If yes, why don't you just paste the text as plain text into Mellel? Or, after importing is there a way of globally removing the hyperlink and converting it to text without going to each individual link and changing it? I ...

Re: Formatting Autotitle Elements

Hi, When I said I can't see how Appendix 5.A.1. can be created with an Auto-title I was trying to do it with Level 1, which doesn't have any "Previous Level #". The option "Previous Level #" begins with Level 2. The Autotitle in question is defined as Appendix Prev1. Prev5. Prev 6. Curr# .Title When...

Re: Formatting Autotitle Elements

Hello Paul, To beginn with, are you talking about Auto-Titles (= Level 1 to 10) or Tag Flows? I don't see how you can create an Auto-Title as Appendix 5.A.1,I, so I assume you're talking about Tag Flows, which—to make make things unnecessary complicated— are unfortunately also sometimes referred to ...

After editing note attributes, unnecessary scrolling to the beginning of a document

Let's say, I'm somewhere in the middle of a Mellel document when I open the note attributes pane in order to check/change some note formatting attributes (Insert –> Note –> Edit note attributes.) When I click on the OK button to close the pane, Mellel always scrolls to the beginning of the document ...

Is it possible to search for document variables in a document?

I inserted a document variable into a very long document, then saved and closed it. I then later realized that I might have inserted the variable at a wrong place, but I'm having a hard time finding the location where I inserted it. Generally speaking, it seems the Find box can neither find a docume...

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.
