Anyone else using Bookends and care to comment?

I have a quite long and complex document, which I've been working on in Mellel + Bookends for some time now. Recently, I've been experiencing intermittent problems with the formatting instructions sent from Bookends not being followed when the citation is copied over into Mellel, e.g. where a book t...

Re: Problem with iCloud Drive sync with Mellel for iPad

I finally figured out what was causing this problem: I had two directories that I was using for Mellel, one created by the app itself called "Mellel" and another I created in iCloud Drive called "Writing". Selecting my document by navigating to "Writing" in iCloud Drive on the iPad produced an error...

Understanding "Synchronize Database"

I have a Mellel project which is linked to a Bookends bibliography. After doing some work on cleaning up my references, I tried out the "Synchronize Database" command, and saw that it restored many of the old versions of my references to my Bookends database (which I was able to remove easily, as th...

Re: How to resume the counting of Level 1 heading?

Have you tried doing this with Title Flows in the Auto-Title area? One Title Flow to contain the two parts of the document, and a second title flow below that with numbered sections and the "Reset numbering with higher level flow" box checked.

Re: ProWritingAid support for Mellel

Just to give a bump to this thread: particularly if you have already subscribed to ProWritingAid, it would be great if you could drop their team an e-mail to let them know that you are a Mellel user and are keen to be able to revise your Mellel documents directly using the PWA Desktop App. Even if y...

Re: Feature request: Word count in outline

I quite like this idea too. As you may already know, it's possible to do this manually by selecting the text in each section and bringing up the Statistics palette, where the word count for the selected text is shown in parentheses after the word count for the whole document.

Re: How to reinstall

It should be easy enough to reinstall the application: 1) First, go to the website and enter your e-mail address to download the installer: https://www.mellel.com/download/ 2) Double-click on the mellel_40305.dmg file that you have just downloaded to open it 3) In the blue window that appears, click...

Re: Problem with iCloud Drive sync with Mellel for iPad

Just a quick update on this issue: the file opens just fine when transferred to Mellel via iTunes, so it looks like there is some kind of issue with opening it from iCloud Drive.

Re: ProWritingAid support for Mellel

I agree very much with Eyal that getting in touch directly with the people at ProWritingAid will let them know that there are users of Mellel out there who would like to use their service.

Contact information is available on the bottom right hand side of their website: https://prowritingaid.com/

Re: Problem with iCloud Drive sync with Mellel for iPad

Indeed, that's a possibility - I've updated to the latest version, iOS 11.2.2.

Re: Problem with iCloud Drive sync with Mellel for iPad

I figured this issue might come right by itself, so I gave it a few days. But nothing has changed, when I try to open my document on Mellel for iOS all I see is a blank page. On MacOS the document seems to be fine.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Re: Problem with iCloud Drive sync with Mellel for iPad

Thanks, that's interesting. Because I'm using the non-App Store version of Mellel 4 for MacOS, I was already using a non-default folder in iCloud Drive for my project. It was able to load properly before, I'm not sure what has changed in the mean time.

When I try to open it by navigating to the iCloud Drive folder containing it using the "Browse" function, Mellel for iPad displays a blank document. Repeated attemp...

Re: Unable to delete styles

I was also curious about this. On p. 138 of the manual there is the following explanation: "If the style is not part of the current style set and is only available in the current document (these styles are referred to as Document Styles), it is marked by a black diamond." My understanding is that th...
