Re: trim marks

I do not know how to create the trim marks, but I will try to answer your second question: File->Export->PDF is recommended The main difference is that PDFs produced by print->PDF don't include the outline. I hope someone else will give you an answer regarding the trim marks. But as far as I know, I...

Re: PakaPaka Studio: new application

It would be great if PakaPaka could be updated to a 64-bit application. Also would be nice to have an iOS version of the same application. A very useful app.

Re: Round trip editing equations with MathType

I asked Redlers, several years ago, to try to implement LinkBack to Mellel, but problem should still be that MathType do not support LinkBack. Another is if LinkBack still is a ongoing project or not.

Re: Sluggish Typing in iOS App

I have a lot of files, I mean a lot of files. When I tried to type after I temporarily deactivated iCloud, the sluggishness was gone.

Re: Numbering Figures

I want to have my figures numbered automatically and sequentially throughout the manuscript, using the chapter number as part of the caption. So I want Figure 2.1, Figure 3.6, and so forth. Is there a way to get the chapter number into the Figures auto title sequence, and to restart the numbering w...

Re: Sluggish Typing in iOS App

I've got the same problem after the update to 12.3.1. The app gets sluggish both while typing, scrolling within a document and scrolling in the Mellel folder located at iCloud.

Really hope for a quick fix.

Re: Hyphenation on iPad

One year later and sadly no sign of any improvements regarding these features that are more or less essential to a word processor today. When will the iPad version of Mellel come up to the same level as the macOS version?

Re: After editing note attributes, unnecessary scrolling to the beginning of a document

Let's say, I'm somewhere in the middle of a Mellel document when I open the note attributes pane in order to check/change some note formatting attributes (Insert –> Note –> Edit note attributes.) When I click on the OK button to close the pane, Mellel always scrolls to the beginning of the document...

Re: Embedding fonts in a PDF

The only answer I can find regarding this topic is quite old. It's from 2009 and can be read here in the Mellel forum (click on the link).

I do not know if this has changed during the last 9-10 years. If it has, hopefully to the better. :-)

Re: Just for fun, what is your longest Mellel document...

My Master thesis reached nearly 29,000 words altogether. No problems at all during the writing process. Worked like a charm together with Bookends.

Forgot to mention it included a lot of cross-references and footnotes as well.

Re: iPad Keyboard Shortcuts

Hello, as far as I can tell, some of the system wide iOS keyboard shortcuts (iPad 3rd Gen and iOS 12.1.1) are not available on Mellel, but are available on Pages, Notes, Scrivener, etc. Just a couple of examples: (1) Holding Command while in the App doesn’t bring up a list of keyboard shortcuts.

Re: A Mellel PDF becomes unintelligible

Thanks, all (esp. Eyal) for the advice. I've sent both 'versions' of PDF to the publishers, whose printers are now telling them their software doesn't recognise the font. It's Palatino Linotype. Any (polite) suggestions as to what I might suggest the publisher advises the printer to do would be wel...
