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

At the moment my dissertation has 207268 words and 1345 citations + many cross-references (the end product will be shorter) in one file. Mellel handles it just fine, it only takes a few more seconds to save the document compared to a normal size document. Ah, good, I was hoping someone would have a...

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

I have not yet written anything in Mellel that needed a lot of cross references. I imagine it has the potential to slow things down a lot unless the data structures and programming are very well designed.

Re: Feature request: split view

Oh yes please! Being able to have a window or part open on a different part of the same document to see exactly how you worded something elsewhere would be really helpful.

Feature Request: Equalise row heights in tables.

With all the attention tables are getting I looked, but still it seems this is not there. We can select some columns and equalise their width, please could we also be able to select some rows and equalise their heights? This may not be used as often as equalising column widths but it is still a usef...

A thesis? That's an important document! Nice to have a word-processor you can trust with such things, good luck with it.

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

Yes, the title says it all, post in this thread the word count for your longest single Mellel document. My novel passed 173,000 words today and it is in a single document file. I back up ruthlessly including several on-site backups and weekly off-site backup. I have not found the software slowing to...

Re: Support for PPC

OK, I am a PPC user and will not be able to spend the money to go Intel for some time; where can I download the latest version of Mellel that will support my system? Can you at least keep that version available? You can always download version 2.9.1 here: http://www.connectnw.com/redlers/mellel291....

Re: Mellel 3.0 is Here

Am I reading correctly? I am using a G5 Quad with 10.5.8 and 10.4.11 and this update won't run at all on my system unless I am mistaken.

Re: Way OT; Could someone translate a short phrase to Hebrew?

I'm designing a squadron badge for use filming a script apparently featuring a fictitious Israeli fighter squadron, and although it looks fine without text on it I think it might look better with the text. One thing I should mention: Israeli fighter quadroons do not have names . . . if you want you...

Way OT; Could someone translate a short phrase to Hebrew?

I promise this is a one-off, but I know of no better place to ask this, and it's a very short phrase. It isn't essential, but I'd like the modern Hebrew translation of the phrase "Moon Horse Squadron". I'm designing a squadron badge for use filming a script apparently featuring a fictitious Israeli ...

Re: Paste text and have it take on current styles?

Hi guys, I'm having some trouble with keyboard shortcuts too. I set up Cmd-Shift-V in System Preferences as "Paste Plain Text" in Mellel. When I fire up Mellel it works fine. If I quit Mellel (I think this is how it works), the keyboard shortcut is lost. It no longer works and is no longer listed i...

Re: Mellel ignores trailing blanks (spaces) in centered text

I'd like Mellel to show trailing spaces on screen while I am typing so I know they are there, but not to use them in the centring of the text, as they really shouldn't affect that. This would allow users to see if their text had spaces it needed/didn't need, but would centre the text properly as Mel...

Re: Bug or design fault in Mellel's Styles editor?

Yep, it was a mistake on my part to delete essential data, but no, I didn't get an error message, I got corrupted styles and the only means of recovery was to reinstall Mellel. I think it has to be regarded as a bug or a design fault if the program allows you to delete data when it can't function wi...

Bug or design fault in Mellel's Styles editor?

I found some odd behaviour recently in the styles editor when tackling my ignorance of how to edit and use styles properly. Not understanding them very well yet I decided to tackle that, and started by deleting too many of them. In fact I deleted some styles that Mellel required for creation of the ...
