Re: TOC, TAB and Page#

Hi Uli, You are right, the implementation of taps in the TOC format is far from being intuitive. The Preview field seems to be reliable though, i.e. what you see there is what you get. I think in your case the culprit is the Indent Tab. You must get rid of it. Based on the screenshot of your "Inhalt...

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.

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 .
