Extra line of spaces inserted in Bibliography

After scanning using mellel and bookends, there are often some unwanted line of spaces inserted between bibliographies. Anyone knows why?

Searching for words typed in superscript?

Hi,

I have a long document with bibliography and footnotes generated by mellel+bookends. After scanning, some words within footnotes become "superscripted". I don't know why, but is there a way to search for words in superscript?

Blessings,
YingLam

Re: How Mellel has failed me

Even if Mellel has produced a capacity of exporting to docx, would the limitation of RTL language in MS Word limit the quality of the exported docx? I am currently 'suffering' from a long thesis in which many of my Hebrew writings have been distorted. As far as I know, the export function of Acrobat...

Re: Toward a Sneaky Way To Export Better to Word

According to a discussion in https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1758018, this has been a known bug from the side of Adobe on RTL. In contrast, while the direct export from Mellel to MS Word messes up in a lot of areas (indents, note symbol, font sizes....), the exported Hebrew characters in the MS Word...

Re: Toward a Sneaky Way To Export Better to Word

May I know which MS Word version and on what platform is your Word running? It seems like the language support or RTL support in Mac Word is worse than that in Windows.

Re: Toward a Sneaky Way To Export Better to Word

Thanks so much for the above information. I have been trying to export my PhD thesis from Mellel 4 to Acrobat Pro DC (2015) and then export the pdf file to Word Document (docx).

How to locate the "Unmatched Citations"

After clicking "Scan Document" and receiving expanded footnotes and bibliographies from Bookends, there are a few "Unmatched Citations" as found by Bookends. How can I locate them in Mellel?

Collaborating using rtf format plus Bookends

Dear everyone, I have been using Mellel/Bookends for a few years and I am about to use them for my PhD dissertation. I have read quite a lot of posts here on collaboration between Mellel and MS word, so presumably I assume rtf is the best format I should use. However, there is a problem that I can't...

Re: Redo function?

Yes, this one I know. But it seems that it can do only once. and this is not exactly what ctrl-Y does in Word.

But in Word, ctrl-Y can redo sth unlimited number of times.

SBL Hebrew font in Mellel

When I changed the font to SBL Hebrew in Mellel, there appeared an arrow pointing towards the left above some of my Hebrew characters. I don't have this problem when I changed the font to Yehudit. How come? Can anybody help me?
