Auto Title maintains paragraph attributes after Return

I have Auto Title setup at Level 2 and Second-Level Heading paragraph style with 24 pt above and 18 pt below. Associated character style: Subheading and Next paragraph style: Body. Level 2 title flow is 'Curr# . Title Tab LineBreak'. I expect my next line after the Auto Title to revert to Body parag...

Re: Hebrew word breaks at end of line character

Working on the bug report, I observed interesting behavior. I copied and pasted Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 from Accordance BHS text into the same document that I have been using. It maintains its expected proper word wrap when placed in a Mellel table which I resized. Likewise, when I copy text from Sefari...

Re: Hebrew word breaks at end of line character

Janet, I am getting the same performance with hyphenation either on (with customization) or off completely. I do not find any solutions in documentation for Mellel Hyphenation Lab. If I resize the font, whatever characters fill the width of the line wrap to the next without regard to the placement i...

Re: Hebrew word breaks at end of line character

I can create the odd behavior in a Hebrew only RTL doc, but it behaves moderately better. I am using Biblical Hebrew-TIRO with Ezra SIL. The initial question was in an English document with Hebrew as secondary but typing a paragraph that was all Hebrew. I just turned on hyphenation and set עברית as ...

Hebrew word breaks at end of line character

I am typing text into a document in Mellel 4. When a Hebrew word reaches the end of a line, the word breaks at the letter that reached the end of the line instead of wrapping the word to the next line as it does with with English. Is there a setting I am missing that forces word wrap in Hebrew? The ...

Re: Create placeholder for Hebrew vowels

Janet and Darryl, Thanks much for your feedback. Arial Hebrew, Tahoma, and Cardo fonts allow the dotted circle to be placed. When adding diacritics, they either align slightly left- or right-of-center--never midline with the letter above. TAAMIM goes beyond my training thus far (but I would like res...

Re: Create placeholder for Hebrew vowels

Janet, I tried your suggestion with the unicode dotted circle with Ezra SIL (and SR), Tahoma, Cardo, Shlomo (a variant of Ezra?), Raanana, Arial Hebrew, New Peninim MT, and Corsiva Hebrew. I have also opened a new Mellel document with Hebrew as the first font and changed among the above fonts. The b...

Re: Create placeholder for Hebrew vowels

Et cetera, I can place the Dotted Circle unicode character in my Mellel document, but unlike the behavior with any actual Hebrew letter, the diacritics will not line up but either appear just outside the left or right border of the vertical edge of the circle as below. The closest I can come from a ...

Create placeholder for Hebrew vowels

I want to create a teaching sheet with two features. 1) I would like to insert an invisible consonant character that will allow the placement of a vowel in its usual pointed place but no visible consonant above (for teaching purposes). E.g., LaMaD in Hebrew minus the L but with the remainder. 2) Sim...

Lost templates and styleset after MacOS Sierra

Mellel 3.5.2b2 on MacOS 10.12.1 are my versions on a MacBook Air. I had downloaded 6-8 templates and some stylesets from the DTS Mellel group and SBL over the past two years and customized one (for papers where I attend school) in Turabian style. I have not created a new Mellel document since Septem...

Change color of Changed text

Where is or is there a palette setting to adjust the default color of text that has been modified to display when I am tracking changes? My proofreader/editor has made a number of changes in my document, but they default to a Banana or Gold on white background with difficult readability. The templat...

Editing OS X spelling dictionary

This may be an OS X question or a Mellel use of the system dictionary, but I occasionally encounter misspelled words that should have been caught in spellcheck. "fo" instead of "of" is a common one. I have built a rule in System Prefs to autocorrect for apps that use it, but that does not affect the...

Misalignment of diacritics in Hebrew text

I am copying and pasting Biblical Hebrew text from BHS / WTT into Mellel 3.3.8b3 on OS X 10.10.3 using SBL Hebrew and Ezra SIL fonts. The daghes shifts left or right up to one half character width in its related character sometimes getting lost entirely to the reader. The behavior is persistent onsc...
