Re: Feature Request: line numbers

Indexing is an important feature, of course, and I’d like to see it too, but I am using Mellel in an academic environment and nobody has ever mentioned anything about indexing. So that Mellel is also a tool for "scholars" is not a joke or false, it simply correct. There are scholars that don’t need...

Re: Color

Etienne, have you considered using style variations? You can define a variation called "color" or "problem" or whathaveyou. Then, all you need to do to change color is to click on the variation window in the Character Style palette or use one of the keyboard shortcuts. Janet Yes, I have done that i...

Color

One small improvement: I regard the path to change the color of the font in mellel as quite cumbersome. Basically I would make use of one single color in a text, on top of black, to signal a problem. A useful feature in Word is that it will "remember" which color on top of black I have made use last...

Re: Indexing...

Not only sorting the language order, but also the ultimate possibility to choose the letter order. I might want to index the words beginning with an arabic dal with the english words beginning with d, or I might want to have the words beginning with the diacritic ḫ listed with the words beginning i...

Re: Indexing...

First of all I think it is unnecessary to imagine that Mellel will compete with the professionnal indexing tools. What we need is a robust and simple indexing tool adapted to the main strength of Mellel, its multilingual abilities. So that as regard features I would regard as necessary are -sub-entr...

Re: Feature Request: line numbers

Yes, I agree. I do still have a private email of Ori saying that in 2006. What I am saying is that on the front page of www.redlers.com "Mellel is a powerful, reliable word processor, and a long time favorite with writers and scholars, for long document writing." is simply a joke, something false. I...

Re: Feature Request: line numbers

yes, line numbering is mandatory for 5% of publishers… but try to publish a book without an index… the path of development of Mellel should be seriously reconsidered

Re: 2.8 is great, but . . . . 2.9 wish list

Indexing! I am sorry but Mellel, so prone to present itself as a tool for academics, is USELESS to write books without indexing! This is incredible, I have emails from Ori dating back to 2006 promising an indexing feature very soon. I have written books entirely with Mellel, and I had at the end to ...
