Re: Mellel 4.1 is ready for beta testing...

I would love there to be a vertical ruler.
Is that so very much to ask?
Please, thank you.

Line numbering

I am familiar with how to use line numbering. However, despite selecting ignore empty lines, many empty lines (between paragraphs) are for no apparent reason still being numbered. It is particularly annoying (aesthetically) that the first empty line at the top of a page is being numbered. Any sugges...

Vertical ruler

Having just upgraded to M4, (early days to comment on anything else, I need to finish writing something that I was using M3 for,) I am disappointed to find there is still no vertical ruler. Surely it wouldn't too much to expect a v/r? After all, if the aspiration is for Mellel to be one's only word ...

Mellel or Pages

I am a surveyor/lawyer (don't ask!). I use M (latest version) for lengthy reports, I find it excellent, particularly autostyle, footnotes and line numbering. I use Pages '09 for writing letters, usually one or two pages, rarely longer than half a dozen. Also I have Nisus Pro that I sometimes use for...

Re: Auto-Titles - simple instructions, please!

I have a question.

I have saved the styles I want for character and paragraph; also I've changed the layout for the auto-title )for the different levels, but the font that the auto-title uses is courier whereas I want Times Roman.

What should I do now please to change courier to a font I want.

Auto-Titles - simple instructions, please!

Mellel 3.4.3b2 (on Snow Leopard) I understand what an auto-title is and can do (and I've watched the video on using Auto-Titles), but despite having searched/read quite possibly all of the questions/comments on the forum, as well as Mellel's help, I am still unclear as to precisely the steps to take...

Re: Paragraph numbering

I've already tried that, thanks. As you say, it's a bit cumbersome. I've also experimented with customising Level 2, etc but that's not ideal either. Since it looks like I'd need to remember to auto-title the start of each paragraph, unless there is a way to do what I'm after, I may as well stick to...

For example 1.0 Heading 1.1 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 1.2 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 1.3 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and if so then please let me how would I go about it? In anticipation, thank you for your help. (I could num...
