Re: iOS window closes

I found an interesting post regarding a similar case at stackexchange This is due to the restrictions iOS places on app developers. Apps are only allowed to stay open in the background for a few minutes (this saves RAM), so if the developer doesn't have the app save where you were last, the app will...

Export pdf from the ipad

I have tried and not been able to find a way to export from the Mellel iPad app to the file format pdf if the file is located somewhere else than the Mellel folder in iCloud. I do not want to saved or move my files from the folders I have saved them within from the beginning. I save my files in spec...

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: 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.
