Re: alignment problems

Thank you, the medicine has finally kicked in to battle pneumonia (3 month ordeal). And I was tested for COVID and it came back Tuesday and was negative.

Still have not found a solution

alignment problems

I have several paragraph styles set up for specific projects. One of the styles has 2nd line indented (18.0 pt). However, if I set the indent to 18.0 pt, for th tab it changes automatically to 18.01 pt. I have tried reversine the changes, and it still does not go to 18.0 but always to 18.01 This doe...

Re: F3 keyboard shortcut not working (solved)

Thanks. That did not help, I tried 8-10 other fonts. However, I then began looking at the character set dialog. And the Bold and Italic Style Variations were not set. So I changed the variant "Italic" to be Italic and "bold" to be "bold" using Gentium Book Basic. Now everything works as expected. Th...

F3 keyboard shortcut not working

I have been using Mellel for 10+ years and never had this problem until the last few months (I was in the hospital and couldn't do much for two months). Anyway, I had consistently used Mellel on desktop and laptop, with F1 as Normal, F2 for Bold, F3 for Italic. For the past several months, the F3 do...

Re: Problem with direction when using English

Still taking tests of my body... But I spent a little time today and thought through this. I found the problem. In the character palette, I had "Body" and in lower right corner of the character attributes page under "Open Type," at some point that was changed to Hebrew and direction was set for righ...

Re: Problem with direction when using English

Well after the injury, I have been in the hospital, pneumonia, infection, severe bone and muscle pain in both hands (inside and out)... so I'm just now getting back to life. But not fully functional.

Re: Problem with direction when using English

Thank you, Janet. It's going to take me a couple days to get back to this, I injured my back and knee in a fall, and I am battling a severe chest cold. As I was thinking about this, my copy of Mellel on my laptop works perfectly, so I will be able to compare and with your suggestions/questions, it l...

Problem with direction when using English

About two months ago, Mellel presented a curious and frustrating problem. When I type (in English) the direction is fine for reading—except for using punctuation. When I enter period, comma, etc. normally it should show up at the end of the sentence (which it has done for 8 years). However, with lat...

Re: Mellel 4.1.4 is here

Just a note on this update: I still cannot change the indents. If I set indent or margin start at 36 pt, it appears as 35.99 pt, which then causes havoc with other alignments. If I use any number besides 36 pt, then the actual value shows, i.e. 18 pt, 24 pt, 28 pt. No problem. But 36 pt never works....

The issue here is that you cannot move the margin/indent beyond the first tab stop.
I want the margin/indent distance the exact same as the first tab stop. I understand. But I can't ever get those set to the same exact point (in the distance box).

Margin/indent numbers slightly off

I have one paragraph style, in which the margin is supposed to be 36 pt and the indent is 36 pt. But they never match. See attachment. The end if 36 pt. But start and indent numbers are 35.99. No matter what I have tried, they never change as I intend. The reason this is critical is that when I want...
