Re: Suppressing page number on second page

I wonder is there any way to suppress page numbers on the second as well as the first page of a section? Well yes, if you remove the footer in the Page palette –> Attributes. But you need to enter a Page style break after the second page in order to get a new footer for the remaining pages. You cou...

Re: Page break and section break for new chapter

now I have the problem that my page numbers also start from 1 again for each chapter! Try the options in the Page palette . If that solves the problem, safe the settings as a new Page style for future use. If you revert to what you did first ("I have selected "Section break" in the "insert before" ...

Re: Glossary

The Index feature would almost support it if only the Remarks field could be set to show in the resulting index.

Re: Glossary

I would like have access to this glossary, by hyperlinks. I can’t see how it is possible to do that with Mellel. Moreover, if that was possible, it would be very convenient that the reader could return to the text at this point of departure : how can I do that? It seems you're talking about a book ...

Re: Block quotes

Did block quotes disappear from the paragraph style menu? The paragraph style menu is not static. Which paragraph styles appear in the menu depends on the document you are in, or perhaps more specifically, the template on which the document is based. For example, if you add some special paragraph s...

In auto-titles, I have selected "Section break" in the "insert before" area for each new chapter
…which is wrong. You must insert "Page style break" instead.
Then set the numbering of your note stream to "Restart every section".

Re: Endnotes to Footnotes and Vice Versa

Nisus Writer Pro has a Macro that can handle this called "Convert Notes to Text," This macro is not intended for this kind of job. Nisus Writer Pro has a built-in feature to change all endnotes to footnotes, and vice versa. This is how it's done: 1. Place the insertion point in an endnote 2. Press ...

Re: Endnotes to Footnotes and Vice Versa

Is there an easy way to change all endnotes to footnotes, or vice versa This can be done quite easily in Mellel. 1. Choose "Note" –> "Edit Note attributes" from the Insert menu 2. Select the Note Stream, which in this case is probably 'Endnote', given that you entered endnotes into your document fr...

Re: Find Sets - prompt before replacing?

Hello, joseph_anton et al You may have found it out already by yourself, but I thought I should mention the following, just for the record: Find Actions in a Find Set can also be selected individually (using the Command key) and then run without triggering the other Find Actions in that Find Set.

how to cut and paste […] a Bibliography into a position after Notes?

Re: New User Looking for Simple Template

This can be easily modified. You just need to go to Insert menu –> Note –> Edit note attributes… and ad...

Re: New User Looking for Simple Template

Hello wstaylor711, I've tried importing some Word->RTF files but the conversion leaves some elements unmodifiable Just curious, what elements turn out to be unmodifiable in Mellel? Judging from what you wrote, your goal can be achieved with any word processor; so why do you want to use Mellel? I'm n...

Re: A call for tables

For me, table "breaks" (automatic at the bottom of a page, but with the ability to input manual breaks) with defined headings that would carry over to the next page are also important for those who translate or provide multi-lingual columnar data. I don't understand. Being a translator myself, I kn...

Re: {} when exporting to RTF and Word

When I export to RTF, the citations look exactly the same in the RTF document as in the Mellel document. How did you do it? I guess more information is needed on your part. Do you use Bookends? What program do you use to open the RTF document? Do you use Live Bibliography in Mellel? Did you meddle w...
