Re: What's next for Mellel 3.4?

Mellel 3.4 can't come soon enough. Mellel 3.3.7 was a disappointment given that it took 4 months to be released and is just a bug fix (and the inverted comma bug has not been fixed yet). I hope a new version comes soon with some real improvements.

Re: Mellel developers... you out there?

I second what rpcameron wrote too. Of course there are still some features missing, vital for some, not so vital for other users. But what is really crucial about Mellel —and has been for many, many years—is the fact that it is more or less isolated from the rest of the writing world. You can do a ...

Re: Mellel developers... you out there?

Hi All, We are all here and well. Working very hard on the next version of Mellel and the expansion to a new platform. We are also working on a small version to correct some issues on Yosemite. If you're seeing anything odd this is the time to let us know. Great to hear that. I wonder which platfor...

Re: Mellel developers... you out there?

Well, no news from the developers so far. Mellel has been updated more than 3 months ago for the last time. And there is no post of any of Mellel's developers on this forum since August. Is there something going on? Mellel is such a great piece of software, there should be any news on it...

Re: Mellel developers... you out there?

Agree. There is silence over here. Mellel was last updated two months ago. The last post by Eyal Redler was on August 19, more than two months ago. Is there anybody out there?

Spell checker, grammar checker and thesaurus

I'm trying to use Mellel as a replacement to Microsoft Word, but I'm having a hard time in doing it. One of the main reasons for that is, of course, compatibility. Everybody that I know uses Microsoft Word. I don't know a single person who uses LibreOffice Writer or Word Perfect or Apple Pages inste...

Re: Writing a PhD in Mellel

Thanks for the input, that was really nice. I wrote my PhD thesis in Word, not in Mellel. I moved away from Mellel to write such a large project for some reasons: (1) My supervisor wanted to read the thesis on her computer and to make comments. She is a 70-year old lady who uses a Windows PC and, of...

Mellel and ExpressO

I am a legal scholar. In my field of research, several articles are submitted to legal journals in the U.S. by means of a service provided by the University of California at Berkeley called ExpressO (http://law.bepress.com/expresso/). ExpressO is very convenient because it is a platform which allows...

Typographer's quotes are broken

The typographer's quotes function seems to be broken. When I type "word", instead of getting “word”, I get ”word”. I am using Mellel 2.7.3.

Re: Wishlist for version 2.6

Now that Mellel 2.6 is released, there should be a wishlist for version 2.7... should we change the name of this topic or create another one?

Re: Mellel 2.6, the official blurb

Mellel 2.6 is a great update. I particularly liked the improvement on cross-references. And the new icon is much better. Have you noticed that Apple is mistakenly announcing Mellel 2.7 instead of 2.6? Look here: http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/productivity_tools/mellel.html I wonder why Apple ...

Hyphenation issue - Portuguese

I noticed mistakes in hyphenation in Portuguese (I'm a Brazilian user of Mellel). Mellel hyphenates word "colunas" (i.e., "columns" in Portuguese) as "col-unas", (the correct would be "co-lu-nas"). I searched the source of the Mellel hyphenation dictionary for Portuguese and I noticed that it was ba...

Re: Wishlist for version 2.6

Since this is something not even Microsoft can provide, you'll never see this in Mellel. I wouldn´t say that. I´ve heard of incompatibilities between Mac and Windows versions of Word. However, I use Word XP and Word 2007 for Windows and Word 2008 for Mac to edit the very same files, and it has alwa...
