Secondary Font / Text Attributes Palette

Hi One of my favorite things about Mellel is the Secondary Font feature. Works great. But, when I switch to the secondary script keyboard layout, the Attributes panel of the Text Palette continues to display the name of the Primary Font. I assume that this is expected behavior. If not, please let me...

Re: Remove blank pages numbering

Insert>Breaks>Page Style Break

will allow you to turn off (on) the footer. Insert one one either side of the page you want to have without a footer.

Re: Temporary citation format with Sente

This is a matter for Sente and, AFAIK, is controlled by what is in the "Citation ID" box (in the "Identifiers" view in the right-hand pane in Sente). I don't know whether you can set Sente up to insert this info into the Citation ID field automatically. (In any case, I think, you have to enter the s...

Re: Character misbehavior

Further further I just want to express my frustration with this whole setup. It is "powerful" but it is absurd. Trying on my test file to check the theory about secondary font setting, I changed "normal." Without asking, that change has been applied to all the other mellel files I have with "normal...

Re: spotlight

Not exactly the question, but you may want to give Spotinside a try (if you haven't). I much prefer it to Spotlight.

Re: quicklook

I’ve really enjoyed reading the posts of feimotion339, chongzivalve08089, Lihualee, and yuqingeng2005 this past week. But it seems that perhaps all of the light these posts bring to matters of concern to all Mellel users has caused some less urgent matters to remain in the dark. I recognize that the...

Re: Wishlist for version 2.6

I don't mean to say that the long list isn't already long enough, but I find it odd that no one has mentioned assignable keyboard shortcuts (perhaps I missed this?). iKey does the job, of course, but its implementation is clunky. And since Mellel's styles are sui generis , the need to assign a (more...

Re: Scanning with Bookends yields straight quotes, not curly

This seems to have to do with the Chicago 15th Footnote style as it's set up in BE. Not sure about it all, but here's a work-around: Open Formats Manager in BE and have a look at Chicago 15th Footnote. You'll see the straight quotes. If you choose another style, say MLA, you'll find curly quotes. Ju...

tab/alignment

I'd be surprised if this hasn't appeared in these pages before, but I can't find it. I've also looked in the Guide and Tutorial. I'm not able to move the Lower triangle of the Left Margin marker to a position beyond the 1st tab stop. (Left-to-Right text flow.) Which means I can't produce this: Text ...

Re: Unicode and Find

It works here when I uncheck the "ignore capitalization" check box Brilliant! This obviously hadn't occurred to me... Edit: I spoke a bit quickly. For my purposes this works fine, but with "Ignore case" unchecked Find now doesn't distinguish between Π (capital letter) and ϖ. As I say, for me this w...

Re: Unicode and Find

I'd hope for the ability to search with Unicode #s so as to be able either to include or to exclude alternate forms. My problem is that I need to find one of the variants, but not the standard/normal form.

Unicode and Find

For me, Find does not distinguish between 03D6 (ϖ) and 03C0 (π). I’ve got a bunch of files with 03D6 (ϖ--a version of Greek Pi) where Omega should be, and I can’t do a Find/Replace because a search for 03D6 (ϖ) finds 03C0 (π) as well. Copy/Paste into Find produces the same results. Mellel, it seems,...

Re: Bug? Random crashes when I press F5

This doesn't happen for me either.
Are you sure there isn't something else in the mix?
