Export to docx

The joys of using Mellel have always included the problem that nobody else does. For many years the solution has been to import and export via RTF and it has worked well, if the text was not too complicated from a lay-out point of view. The introduction of docx did not make our lives easier, but rec...

Re: High Sierra "not optimised" warning

I got that warning as well, and it concerned the Installer-program, not Mellel itself. It was a warning that the Installer was not 64-bit and would not run on later versions of Mac OS. After the warning, the installer installed and all was fine. So unless it is a hoax you need to update your install...

footnotes from doc in 4.1.1

I have just installed the update 4.1.1 and then imported a file in .doc. All footnotes were lost as notes and appeared after the text without links. Note references in the text were lost. Did something go wrong in the update? The imported file was difficult and a little strange. I do not have any ot...

Re: synchronizing styles?

Thank you, Icelander. This is what I did last time, I believe, and what you would intuitively try to do. The problem is that I do not find any of this in the Library to which I have access. There is no Library visible in my home folder and I have forgotten the special trick to make it appear. Perhap...

synchronizing styles?

How do I transfer the style-sets from one computer to another? I think I have done it once, but cannot remember how.
Thanks in advance for help

Importing to Mellel. docx etc.

There is a problem that has been souring my life with Mellel for many years. I had hoped that the new direct import of docx would solve it, but no. The problem is the import of small caps and suprascript numbers. Small caps are rendered as normal letters and suprascript numbers as ordinary figures r...

Re: Export Outline to PDF

The subject has already been discussed, and as far as I remember the answer is no, but if you make a ToC it will be active in your pdf provided you have written your document in Mellel 4, not earlier.

Re: Pages files, how to open with/transfer to Mellel?

You seem to have found a real problem. I opened a file that I had received in Pages, with b****** endnotes, exported it in rtf and imported it into Mellel. Note-llnks were broken, but otherwise it worked well. I then tried to transform the endnotes into footnotes in Pages (appears to be possible in ...

Search function not working

Mellel 4.0.3b6 OS 10.12.6 I wanted to find a place in a longish file, but did not get any result although the parameters were correct. In fact, I discover that the search function just does not work at all. On another computer running the same version of Mellel but on OS 10.13.3 it works perfectly. ...

Re: export outline / auto-titles to Microsoft Word document

I have just tried to export, via RTF, to LibreOffice (a clone, I don't have Word) and to Nisus Writer Pro and you are right, no outline is shown. But does this brilliant feature exist in Word? Or is Auto-Titles one of several reasons why we use Mellel and not something else? - I have just tried with...

Re: Figure captions

As for me, I am not on the point of abandoning Mellel, but I am afraid you are right. At least I have never found how to do it.
It would be a very nice feature and I often need it.

Re: unable to open mellel files

In my experience, opening older files in Mellel 4 works without any problem. At some point one of my Macs was still on Mellel 3.5, and if I went the other way, opening new files with an older version, I was warned, correctly, that some features from Mellel 4 might not work. Apart from that, no probl...

Re: Drag & drop headings from the outline?

If I understand your problem correctly, it is about promoting or demoting auto titles in outline-mode. This is very easily done with the double arrows << and >> at the bottom of he column. I cannot, however, make it work by the suggested shortcuts (⌘→ and ⌘←).
