Re: Facing a new decade

Great plans! For export formats, here are my votes, as someone who has worked both as an academic and also on the publisher's side: docx InDesign some common e-book format I personally hate Word, but so many publishers want the material in Word format, so that is why docx has the priority. And InDes...

Make controlling styles sensible

Hi again. I'll start by repeating the basic point that Mellel is indeed amazing and definitely my editor of choice for academic writing. However, could you please, please, please put proper effort into making the style sets sensible and and easier to control. At the moment this is where Mellel is ab...

Feature request: Chapter word/character count

To make sure this isn't a case of simply "it was posted in the wrong area", I am reposting this feature request here. As was first suggested already in 2008 , it would be great to have Mellel showing word/character count for chapters or sections . Perhaps they could be activated to show in the outli...

Re: Chapter Word Count

I'd like to upvote this feature request too. Please implement some easy way to see word/character counts for sections. Seven years since this was first suggested and we are still waiting. Having word count for sections would be really, really useful. In fact, it is a serious lack in Mellel at the mo...

Shortcut for edit citation in Live Bibiography mode

Could we get a keyboard shortcut for editing citations when using the Live Bibliography mode ? I know Bookends provides the possibility to enter citations with modifiers but frankly it's not a very quick or convenient option. Even more importantly, I often need to edit my citations when I'm rewritin...

Re: spell checking not working

Thank you! I got it working. Perhaps you could make the language & spelling control a bit more consistent in future versions. Now it seems counterintuitive. Like you can assign language in the Character styles palette, but not when you are editing character styles in your Style Set. But editing para...

Re: spell checking not working

Indeed! This is a major problem. One that needs fixing asap. I've got OS X 10.6.8 and the latest Mellel 3.0.2. If the problem occurs with newer versions of Mac OS, like you describe, then I guess it's not just about the OS but a problem with Mellel itself. I tried your advice and assigned languages ...
