Re: Mellel 4.2 not working

I did not buy from the App store, but did the "check for updates" from the Apple Menu. I just now downloaded 4.2.2 from Mellel's site and had the same results. I'll post a query on the support page.

Mellel 4.2 not working

I must be missing something here. My old documents open fine, and I can insert the one table style that is already in those documents. But when I try to open a new document, nothing works right with tables. When I try to insert a table, there are clearly multiple styles shown as in the video, but no...

Re: Numbering Figures

I seem to have made it work, but I needed to tweak the format from Icelander's template, moving my Figure auto title down one level. I don't know why there should be any difference.

Re: Numbering Figures

Thank you Icelander, for the template, which I can see works. Unfortunately, trying to replicate it in my manuscript isn't working. I must have some setting somewhere in the document that keeps it from numbering properly, so I'll need to play with it more or let it go. I also don't get the numbers f...

Re: Numbering Figures

Thank you for your suggestion, Paul, but it doesn't quite work. When I set the auto-title command to "Figure Prev#2.Curr$ Title" it restarts the sequence after the subheading level in each chapter, not the chapter level. That is in your hierarchy, it begins renumbering when heading 3 changes, not he...

Numbering Figures

I can't find an answer to this in the Mellel guide or the forums. I am working on a book-length manuscript with eight chapters divided by page style breaks. I want to have my figures numbered automatically and sequentially throughout the manuscript, using the chapter number as part of the caption. S...

Re: Mellel 4 Questions

I also really don't like the new icon. It's too cartoony, and like many other icons, blue. I also don't like the new icons for Mellel files. They are blue--exactly the same blue as the icons for Word documents, such that when I have the Finder in list view, I can't tell the difference between them (...

Re: Global Styles always greyed out

That might be. But if I try to use the style in more than one document, the styles don't match (wrong font, size, format, etc).

Global Styles always greyed out

Hello, I can't find an answer to this on the forums or the Mellel guide. The "make style global" button in the edit styles menu is always greyed out, and I don't know how to make the styles global. The current styles are in the Application Support folder, but I don't know if that is where they belon...

Bookends scanning problem

I'm not sure if this is a Bookends or Mellel problem. I have been able to scan Mellel documents with no problems up until last fall, and haven't changed anything except for updates. But today when I scanned my current document, it goes through all the motions, but no citations appear in the notes, e...

Re: Find/Replace citation numbers

Thank you for the answers. The paper was not long, so in the end I simply moved all the periods by hand. It sure would be nice to be able to insert a "footnote reference" into the search box.

Find/Replace citation numbers

I imported a file from Scrivener to finalize it for publication. As imported, sentences with footnotes have a period at the end, followed by a reference symbol [that is, it looks like this: sentence.(#)].My journal requires that I have the period after the reference symbol [that is, it should look l...

Re: How do I control space above and below table text?

I have the same question, but this has apparently gone unanswered for four years? I also want to know 1) if there a way to equalize column width without changing row height, and 2) if there is a way of changing the width/height of a single column/row, without changing the width or height of the othe...

Re: creating new style sets

I'm afraid I still have no luck. I removed the stylesets folder, reopened Mellel, and opened the file with the revised "Outline" styleset. This time I could click the "global" icon, and I did that. I closed the file, and opened another with the "outline" styleset, but it did not use the new formats,...
