Re: Any way to automate autotitle creation?

In the mean time, I have renamed my autotitles Level 1, Level 2, etc. Then under my Mac's keyboard shortcuts, created my own shortcuts CMD + SHFT + OPT + 1, CMD + SHFT + OPT + 2, etc. Works wonders. I finally spent some time using System Prefs to set up some shortcuts, too. Had to rework a few thin...

Re: Feature request: Notes

On this issue, I'd love to see comments expanded into a notes feature: 1) a place for notes (as suggested above) 2) a way to connect notes to text if so desired (like at present with comments) 3) colors, fonts, labels for different kind of notes 4) option to show or hide comments/notes marker in tex...

Re: Any way to automate autotitle creation?

Agreed. Some way to automate the creation of autotitles would be nice - maybe through a find and replace...?

Find and Replace - Import

The find and replace feature in Mellel is great. But what if I wanted to import a list of find and replace texts? For example, if I list of abbreviations that I wanted to change over, is there a way to import them? Or do I have to do each one manually?


Thanks!

Re: Selecting all footnotes

So feature request:

Select all footnotes (not just the one footnote your in)
Perhaps a ⌘ + A (twice)?


Thanks!

Re: Printing & track changes margin line

An old post but I'm not sure where things stand on annotations in print or otherwise... I suggest providing options for the following: - show/hide annotation marks (including comments) while viewing doc (kind of like an invisible) - the little yellow boxes around the words annotated - show/hide anno...

Re: Feature request: Notes

+1

I've tried using Comments but there is not way to get them out in any automated fashion.

I make an extensive use of endnotes / footnotes as a work around, but its not ideal.


Thanks.

Re: Slow writing under El Capitan

Same. Mellel has been slow and sludgy. I'm on El Capitan - latest. All kinds of things are getting hung up in the app that usually don't have any problem.

Anyone else?


Thanks.

Re: Copy and paste between different paragraph styles

However, in the case of 2, it is possible if you are you are using style variations. Option 2 is merely changing the style, not applying a style to text that had none. When changing styles, variations are kept intact. Thanks. I'm working with it and it is making more sense. Thanks for the pointers ...

Thanks! I found a free app called Texts http://www.texts.io

Does MultiMarkdown have the ability to import OPML? Then convert it to MD?

Re: Copy and paste between different paragraph styles

Style variations will do that. Just set up your variations similarly, so when you change paragraph/character styles, the underlying text retains which variation it is. So are you saying I can apply a partial character style to a text...? If I have a text with red and bold and superscript etc all mi...

Re: Misalignment of diacritics in Hebrew text

Ya. They're virtually the same. Though I vaguely remember testing them and seeing slight differences and ended up preferring SBL Hebrew.

Again, wicked thanks. I should have known better!
