Re: Footnotes in one line?

It is not (yet) possible, but it is a feature in which at least a few others are interested. Cf. http://forum.redlers.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2396 with further references.

Re: Fature request: Run-in format for successive short notes

Yes, this would be great.

See also the interest expressed in this post, with a partial workaround for endnotes:

Re: Text input lag in long-ish Mellel doc

Yes, I am using a style-set. The soft-returns are only at the ends of lines within a paragraph of inset verse. I can't yet think of a way to avoid those soft-returns unless I have each verse be its own paragraph, which seems undesirable.

Re: Text input lag in long-ish Mellel doc

No, I have plenty of paragraph breaks. I *do* have quite a lot of line breaks (shift-return/soft) within some of the paragraphs of inset verse. But I don't know a nice way to avoid that.

Again, thanks.

Re: Text input lag in long-ish Mellel doc

Thanks for your response. There are no tables nearby right now, but that's good to know. It happens in even in long stretches of normal body paragraphs (most of the doc). I thought maybe lots of OpenType features or ligatures in a long doc might slow things down, but I've turned all those off, just ...

Text input lag in long-ish Mellel doc

Hello, I am working in a 190,000 word Mellel document (no images; all L-to-R text; hundreds of Bookends refs; scores of xrefs and auto-titles; some 15+ tables). I am having a lot of trouble with slowness and lag in this document, especially when inputting text. A measure of this lag: As TextExpander...

auto-title mentions in header: first, last

Hi, I would like the ability to have a range (first, last) of mentions in the header of my document. That is, I'd like my header to have two mentions pointing to a single particular auto-title class (say, 'lemma'), but to the first and last *instance* of that class on the page. Like, e.g., the heade...

Re: Wishlist for version 2.6

41(my addition): GUI revision, I think current GUI needs major change (menu structure, palettes, make look more similar to rest of OS, improved full screen) I don't care about appearance so much [1], would much rather functional changes, but I haven't seen mentioned the bit about full-screen improv...

Re: Wishlist for version 2.6

Thanks a lot for this, Hans-Reinhard. My (apparently eccentric) preferences are: Most urgent: *39 (Conditional text), *40 (Change tracking OR svn compat), 3 (Two-page View, side by side) Second choice: 4 (Undo after saving), *17 (Start chapter...), 1 (Indexing) Third choice: 7 (Better footnote handl...

Re: Feature request: hide note streams

Perhaps it could be implemented more generally as Conditional Text, on which see my request here: http://forum.redlers.com/viewtopic.php? ... 9188#p9188, which refers to an older one by ptram.

Re: Wishlist 2008

One thing that hasn't come up in a long time is Conditional Text, something I used a lot in FrameMaker. (The last [and only?] mention, I think, was by ptram: http://forum.redlers.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=923&p=5255&hilit=conditional#p5255.) I suppose that, in the case of academics, the conditional te...

Re: Applying *only* Paragraph (not Character) attrs to a passage

That's a fair question. I work in several languages (like most here), and don't like any single font for all, so I run out of variations for a given Character Style if I also have italic, underline and bold variations in the mix of fonts. But, yes, I am coming around to just trying to consolidate th...

Re: Applying *only* Paragraph (not Character) attrs to a passage

Right, thanks very much. That seems to work in all simple cases so far. (It somehow never occurs to me to be *less* controlling in Mellel.)
