Re: change the font of all text in a particular language

You're welcome. Yes, but a bit more if you include the extended range: U+0370–U+03FF Greek and Coptic; U+1F00–U+1FFF Greek Extended U+0590 to U+05FF; Hebrew, U+FB1D to U+FB4F The easiest way to find this info for any non-Latin script is just to search "Greek alphabet" or "Hebrew alphabet" (i.e., "[N...

export outline / auto-titles to Microsoft Word document

When I export my Mellel document, which has a whole system of auto-titles in the outline, to a Microsoft Word document, it does not retain all the titles in the navigation.

Is there a way I can export it (to Word, not PDF or something) and retain the auto-titles?

Re: change the font of all text in a particular language

I just thought I would share an update. I contacted Mellel support about this and they came up with a very nice work around for me. You can do a search for "character range." Then double-click on what appears in the "Find:" box and select the unicode range corresponding to the full range of Greek ch...

Re: change the font of all text in a particular language

I think a better way to phrase the question would be by "script" and not by "language."

Re: change the font of all text in a particular language

I am not sure why, but I think the reason for this is that the Hebrew and the Greek I am trying to change is not actually marked as "Hebrew" or "Greek" in the character style.

Re: change the font of all text in a particular language

Thank you for the help, but it didn't seem to work. Can you please test this on your version of Mellel to make sure it works?

It just didn't find any text when I did it like that so it wouldn't replace anything.

change the font of all text in a particular language

I know how to set up the document so that it will type in different fonts when I switch to different languages. However, I am wanting to be able to change the font of one language AFTER I have typed out the entire document. How can I select all the text of one document, and then do a change so that ...

Re: How to make an automatic word index?

Good job Mellel on making sure there was a way to do this...awesome! 1) Create an index specifically for your words 2) Enter all your words in the left index pane as index records 3) Select Insert > Index > Quick Index 4) Choose each record in the list of in...

I would like to have a Greek word index, in which each of these Greek words is listed in alphabetical order in the back of the book, with a page refere...

Find function randomly stopped working

Hi all, I am working with a large document (400 pages) and suddenly the find function no longer works. I tried selecting things on the character palette (size 12 pt, font times new roman, etc.) to make sure it matched exactly what I was searching for (and knew there were many examples of in the docu...

Re: Linkable Table of Contents

Thanks Avner. I actually have not found that to be true. I have made my mellel doc a PDF yet the table of contents page numbers do not link to the auto-titles, even though I can see all the bookmarks of the outline in the PDF side menu. It was only when I changed the page numbers in the table of con...

Linkable Table of Contents

Is there any way to make an (automatic) linkable table of contents? If not, how can I make a manual linkable table of contents?

i.e., linkable when it is exported as a PDF
