Re: iPad and Mac sync

I seem to recall that it used to work fine. Am I to understand that I would have to repurchase Mellel to have the sync back?
That would be unfortunate.

Re: Style set of a document has been lost

I've just spent a pretty frustrating couple of hours with the previous version of Mellel, before discovering that I had to update to the new version.
I've done that. Now I'm wondering how to restore my style sets which disappeared in the process.

Re: Mellel 3.3.7 bug

Sorry, I looked at your picture again. It seems to be something else.
Can't help with that one.

Re: Mellel 3.3.7 bug

I don't think it's a bug. I think you have the annotations pane open. If so, you can close it in the View menu.
I had the same difficulty, as did someone else on the forum. Perhaps the redlers can find a way to make it clearer what that grey area means, so people know how to close it.

Re: Mellel developers... you out there?

I don't really get the impression that the developers worry too much about what is expressed on these forums. Very occasionally they respond, but it seems that they have their own ideas about what is important to develop and what is less important. Given that the product has many strengths (alongsid...

Re: Mellel developers... you out there?

It could be that rather than the Commodore 64 or the ZX-81, they are planning to do what they pre-announced in the May Newsletter: >In the near future, we believe you'll be able to fix and change Mellel documents on your iPad, or send a Mellel document - as-is - for review and changes by someone who...

Re: Mellel developers... you out there?

I don't think you are in a minority.
I have my own (shorter) list of things I'd like to see developed in the Mac version, prior to any leap to new platforms.
Still, it's good to get signs of life from the developers. Better than silence, in my opinion.

Good news.

"New platform" sounds interesting. Not the iwatch, I hope.

Re: Scrivener Export to Mellel

That's true. But it could perhaps impose a style on all footnotes, for example. Or find all text in Bold 14pt Times New Roman, and make Section Heading (Autotitle + corresponding Paragraph Style). I don't suppose anyone is going to go to much effort to style things in Scrivener, and then repeat the ...

Re: What's this space?

Fantastic. The nuisance was not so much what I showed in the screenshot, but that that space was reproduced in pdfs. I'm not sure why I didn't work that out for myself: perhaps the fact that I hadn't been using the commenting feature, so it didn't occur to me that the space for possible comments mig...

What's this space?

I am getting a strange space to the left of my "page" which is included in the pdfs that I generate as if it were an additional margin area. What does this mean, and how is it resolved?

Thanks,

Declan

Re: Live Bib, chapters, and my Dissertation

I don't know if live bibliography is really of particular significance in this case. The thing is that you will write each chapter as a separate document, and before submitting it you will scan the document to get the bibliography. When, towards the end of your work, you will be working on the whole...

Re: Android reader app

I can well understand the desire to have an Android or IOS app to edit Mellel documents, but if it only a matter of reading them, what is wrong with printing them to pdf and reading them with whatever app you use for pdfs?

Re: Footnote Style Problems after RTF Import

I was also just explaining what happens for me. I'd say that some of the difference comes from the fact that you are working from docx, while I am working from Scrivener-produced rtf. Incidentally, I don't think that the things in the *dropdown* menu are styles. To apply styles to the footnotes or e...

Re: Footnote Style Problems after RTF Import

I have just tried out what Bulow suggested. I wrote a document in Scrivener with three sentences and three footnotes. I compiled it to RTF. I opened the RTF with Mellel. [The bar above the editor showed Par. Style + when the footnotes were selected.) I went to Insert>Edit Note attributes. At the top...
