Re: text flowing around images

this issue has been raised more than once. is it an urgent feature? This issue has been discussed a number of times. There's a simple work around: create a table; place your image in one cell and position the text in the other cell(s). Thanks to the work around, I wouldn't call it urgent, rather us...

Re: Feature Request: tategaki writing for Japanese

I have not found any way to write with a tategaki style when I am writing in Japanese. That is, writing in columns from top to bottom and right to left. Have you tried using Columns [Sections]? If you experiment with the number of columns/font size/gutter width, you could probably find a combinatio...

Except that Pages is not internationalized and can't process right-to-left languages.

Re: Tables.. Arrgggg

I have pages that have a table on them. Each table is 2 rows, 2 columns. The top row has the cells merged.. and second row uses both columns. Essentially I am created a ruled sheet with a margin. Anybody familiar with the cornell note-taking method will understand. Would Columns [Sections] be a sol...

A better solution is to use the RTF (Rich Text Format) export which also could be opened by Microsoft Word File › Export › RTF… . By doing this (and by requesting RTF documents from your colleagues) data transition should work farely well. Some PC users get confused when they see the rtf extension,...

Nitpicks about this forum

I hesitate to raise this issue -- there are so many more important (and more interesting) topics -- but I think it's time to clean up the forum itself. 1. The "Mark All Topics Read" command never seems to work. 2. The highlighting of new/unread topics appears to be inconsistent [I haven't spent much...

Re: Problem with Hebrew and Superscript

Is there any (easy) way to add a superscript to Aleph for textual citations? Variations of this issue have been raised several times. The problem stems from the conventions that govern adding left-to-right text [including numbers] to right-to-left streams. The easiest solution I know is to insert a...

when I click in the header or footer, I do not have the option of choosing anything. All the options are greyed out and 'dead.' That's the problem -- it can be a little confusing at first -- in Mellel you can only make changes to the control parameters of a footer/header from outside the footer/hea...

Perhaps I'm not understanding what you're asking for. While the article was written with a web developers slant, everything about the usage of such characters (including the multitude of spaces) still applies for ordinary word processing. Yes, but the article makes a big point that text editors/wor...

For further reading on the differences between the en and em dash (and other such characters), I suggest reading: “ The Trouble With EM ’n EN (and Other Shady Characters) ”. Fascinating. Now, what I really need is a reference that explains all this not with regard to HML 4.0, but with regard to Uni...

Wouldn't it be possibile to create a sort of "past 1)" (= ???? ???? ???? ????) and a "paste 2)" (= ?? ???) ecc ecc – so that I can simply "paste" always the very same thing just using a single command?

Is there any way within Mellel to duplicate Word's behavior for the em-dash? In Word you just type two hyphens--like so--and it automatically replaces them with the em dash. Auto-substitution is one of the things I really dislike in Word. You're typing in a long run of text and, plop, in the middle...
