Re: Auto Title maintains paragraph attributes after Return

I did some tests and all I can see is to press the space bar (once) before Return. If you are “glued” to the auto-title before pressing Return, it will keep the formatting.

Re: How Mellel has failed me

Currently, Mellel is uninstalled from my machine. Nisus Writer Pro takes its position. I encourage you to test it though.

Re: How Mellel has failed me

Exporting to .docx is a long awaited feature. Should solve many headaches.

Haven't seen one, but that would be a nice feature.

Re: Merge several documents in one

Haven't seen anything like that. Mellel doesn't work on the model "master-slaves documents".

Re: Image placement

(note: working with the French localization, not sure of the exact translations)

Have you tried to right-click “Modify image” then select “Incorporated” or “Floating” (at the bottom of the window)? Also, the last option to create “a return to the line” might do the trick.

Re: New User Looking for Simple Template

There are already some templates that come with Mellel. Have you tried them?

To go further, you can start with the Mellel Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjVTU3 ... sL_QTJAyEw). It was very helpful for me.

Re: Text wrap around table

You might if you insert it as an image. But I don’t think so when you create it directly in Mellel (I may have missed something then).

Re: Govern Auto-Title Length by Character

Never seen a criterion like that too! With Scrivener, I think you can set a goal of a number of characters, but nothing like that with Mellel. A (maybe) workaround would be to work with "Find & Replace". But we are looking here about something very advanced. You may wish to contact directly the Redl...

Re: Mellel Freezing / Locking Up

That's strange. I do have 10.13.4 and Mellel works fine. I suggest you go directly to "support". Redlers answer quite rapidly usually.

Re: Working on the iPad vs. the Mac

Mellel on iPad is very good and the new iPads are very powerful. So, no doubt you can do serious work with both!

Re: Working on the iPad vs. the Mac

My iPad (2!) is a companion for my iMac. So, it was clear from the start I’ll do most of my writing on the latter. They really work great together (and with iCloud). I might consider writing with Mellel with an iPad as a main tool with the iPad Pro 12". But I do not intend to buy it. So, even though...

Re: High Sierra "not optimised" warning

Same as above. Had a warning about the updater, but nothing linked to Mellel per se (iMac 2012).

1) Is it possible to merge different documents together to make one long document?

and

2) Is it possible to extract a single page (or couples of pages) from a long document and export it as a PDF?
1) Don't think so. Look for Scrivener for this : )

2) Print -> Select page range -> Save as PDF
