Re: Help with Find and Replace

ealvarez, unless you're doing something I don't know how to do, this doesn't work.

So for instance, if I search for "[alphanumeric]." I get the end of every single sentence, when I'm only looking for this:

Re: Help with Find and Replace

Thanks Icelander for confirming that isn't an ability. I'm actually doing editing for a book of essays, and some authors are place the comma or period after the footnote number in the body of the text, and I want to move it to before with a find and replace.

Help with Find and Replace

I am trying to create a Find and Replace that moves a comma or period before a footnote/endnote number within the text. I thought the Citation element would find the superscript number within the body, but it isn't finding it.

So essentially, how do I find any footnote # mark in the body?

replacing paragraph styles

Is there a way to replace paragraph styles? I am editing numerous essays which I'm receiving as .docx files. I am combining them and compiling the document in Mellel. I want to use my Style Set in Mellel. Applying the style set isn't conforming the essays to the style set. Is there a way to find and...

Re: small request to streamline live bibliography

Ahh, that does it. Thanks so much! I wish it was just Command-Y (same for back and forth) but that's just a minor quibble :-)

Is a "Mellel Reader" still in the works?

Many moons ago (I think Mellel 3), the Redlers announced plans for a free Mellel Reader (can't recall if it was just Mac or Mac and PC). Is this still in the works?

Re: Intermin solutions for working with .mellel docs in ProWritingAid

I'm no coder, but I suspect that the initiative will need to be more on Mellel's side, utilizing the api to build a plug-in. I always get a little wary of other apps opening documents that are not their types. Getting PWAid to open a mellel file AND edit it is also hoping that they can save it witho...

Re: Intermin solutions for working with .mellel docs in ProWritingAid

I'd love to see a plugin for ProWritingAid in Mellel (ProWritingAid has an api, so perhaps this is really something that redlers would need to decide to do). But to your original question, I don't think you have any other options beyond what you've suggested. If the "finalized version" will end up l...

Minor keystroke fix for table navigation please

Relatively minor but quite annoying. Command+right arrow always takes one to the end of a line in pretty much every application, same with Mellel. But when in a table cell, this same keystroke is now acting essentially like the tab key, moving to the next cell instead of the end of the line the curs...

small request to streamline live bibliography

I'd like to request a minor tweak to streamline the use of the live bibliography feature with Bookends. When citing something in Mellel, users right now need to hit command-Y to move to Bookends, hit command-Y in Bookends to send the highlighted citation back to Mellel. So far so good. But at this p...

Re: Scripture index

For the last two, see the index tutorials on the tutorials page.

I imagine this can also be done for a scripture index, but it will take a lot of work to make all of the marks.
