Re: Figure captions

What I meant is that I keep the link between a figure and its caption. To do so I: 1. give the figure a title that is also going to be the title of the caption also, eg. "Figure 1" 2. assign a Cross reference target ID to the figure (double-click on it), that is usually the same as its title (or clo...

Re: Figure captions

I achieve that by referencing from the text legend to the picture in question. Not ideal though. That is one of the many little things that are still lacking with Mellel; it can be quite tricky to actually keep a nice structure in long documents.

Re: Comments in boxes?

I knew it but thanks anyway. No plans to switch to Nisus though... I will just keep harassing Mellel’s devs until they give us fully featured boxes :)
Merry Christmas!

Show comments without annotation pane

Hi, Is there a way to write/read comments without opening the annotation pane? Most of the time I work with the page and outline in front of me. I only want to show the annotation pane in very specific situations. Most of the time I just want to be able to add/remove/read comments without having to ...

Problem showing/hiding the outline?

Hi, When my zoom is on "fit width" and I show the outline, my page is not resized but rather truncated. If I fix the zoom to see my full page and later hide the outline, my page is not resized either and gets stuck on the left side of the screen. Is it normal? I would expect the page to be resized a...

Re: Auto-titles in text boxes

Mea culpa, I just discovered the cross-referencing function in Pages...! I've been blinded by (honestly superiorly implemented) Mellel's cross-references. Anyway now I'm just missing an outline mode and some tag/label function, after what I'll be close to switching back to Pages... unless Mellel sur...

Re: Floating palettes in fullscreen?

The more I use Mellel, the more I get frustrated by this palette non-sense in fullscreen. PLEASE can we have either floating palettes (would be my preferred option by far)or a re-designed pane (like the Outline one) that allows for multiple palettes at once (like when not in fullscreen)? Can we at l...

Re: Auto-titles in text boxes

Well actually Pages is pretty snappy for me with 100-300 pages documents including lots of different elements, even for imported docx documents. The thing I am missing in Pages is navigation-related (outline and cross-references), and maybe a better find-replace tool. You're right about how weird it...

Re: Auto-titles in text boxes

Actually a lot of features are lacking for text boxes: auto-titles, bookmarks, comments, references, cross-references, figures, tables,... That's a pity because (as mentioned previously), it makes text boxes almost useless for academic documents. The only thing that keeps me from just using Pages is...

Drag & drop headings from the outline?

Hi,
I just realized that while we cant move headings around in the outline view, we can't change their level just by draging them (ie. needs right clicking). I'm wondering why is it the case. Could it be added as a feature?

Comments in boxes?

Hi all,
Is it possible to comment in boxes? It doesn't seem to work with me and I really need this feature. Am I missing something?

Re: Floating palettes in fullscreen?

Or at least, can we have the possibility to display several palette groups when in fullscreen? I still can't see the point of having half of the palettes area unused in fullscreen. It is also very annoying (I think) having to click on tabs to check specific palettes when we could just have them disp...
