Re: small request for Find and Replace (blocking sections)

To make this work, I think we need a "select all occurrences of a style" feature, (e.g. select all "body") - not only would this have a benefit for word count purposes,(http://forum.mellel.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1841&hilit=+occurrences#p13665), but also ... ... you could have a checkbox in the find...

Re: Setting page margins

In the menu:

Styles>page style>edit "regular"...

Then click and drag on the "=" symbols to adjust the margins

Re: iCloud...

I think your problem is to do with the difference between icloud "storage" (supported by OS X 10.9) and "iCloud Drive" (supported from OS X 10.10). Finder treats them differently. Quite probably all your files are there in OS X 10.10. They would be in the folder user-name/library/mobile documents, b...

Re: Newbie Question: Outlines in Mellel

If I'm understanding you correctly, what you're wanting is to set-up "Auto-titles". These will show up in the outline pane.

Insert>auto-title>edit title flows

Possible to Hide Comments?

Is it possible to hide all visual traces of comments (including the yellow boxes which mark where they fit into the text)? Using iWork Pages, I like to create lecture notes to print for students, then I use comments to add extra notes for myself as lecturer. That way I can "hide all markup" so that ...

Re: Exporting Mellel styles

Styles>Edit style set

Then in the "style set" box: duplicate your current set, give it a name and click "make style set global" (at the bottom).

You can then apply this set of styles by clicking the "styles" menu in new documents.

Re: Protecting a file from editing changes

The drop down arrow nxte to the filename (at the top of the document window) has a checkbox to make the file "locked". Is this what you are looking for?

Re: Footnote character (tabs, etc.)

Can you just set the indent/tab on the ruler, then save changes to your footnote paragraph style?

(In Insert>note>edit note attributes you can set note format to "#. + Tab")

re: superscript / subscript shortcut. You can set one of your variations of character style to include superscript as property (e.g. base = normal, b = superscript, c = subscript...).

Re: Untitled document opens whenever I open Mellel

Mellel Preferences>Open&Save>With New Documents, set to: "open template browser." From there you can click on "Recent Documents."

Or open the document directly by using spotlight (cmd-space), type the filename you want and press enter.

Or put the file on your desktop and double-click it.

Re: Arabic Fonts - how many & which are there?

Geeza Pro and Baghdad seem to be default Mac system fonts (though in Snow Leopard I think Geeza Pro was buggy).

You can check which Arabic fonts you have installed by opening "Font Book" (from your applications folder). Then in the left hand column there should be an "Arabic" collection.
