I'm happy with the new statistics palette, and since it is usually the only palette I have open, covering the desktop with palettes is not an issue. One thing I have noticed, however, is that the headings down the left side (Characters, Words, etc.) will sometimes disappear, leaving only the numbers...

Mellel repeatedly crashes when working on table

I have just created a table and am attempting to format the cells. However, whenever I select a row or column (either by dragging the cursor or by means of the palette) Mellel crashes. On a couple of occasions I have managed to select a row or column, but on attempting to select another row or colum...

As a workaround you could try AquaRuler:

It seems to work well with Mellel.

There are also AppleTrans (free) and Heartsome (commercial), not that I have tried using them.

(BTW, what you use to generate copy for the example, or where did you find it? I love the filler nature of it, and find it a bit better than the standard Lorem Ipsum …) You may also like to try the Dashboard widget "Corporate Ipsum": http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/developer/corporateipsum...

Thanks for that information, which may sort of explain it since I had just renewed my licence.

Strange. On trying again a couple of hours later, copy/paste seems to be working again.

Copy/Paste Bug?

After upgrading to Mellel 2.2.5 I am no longer able to copy & paste from Mellel to other applications. The clipboard displays the following message:

ERMellelAttributedStringXML <190be00>

Has anyone else experienced this?

I would suggest trying Finderpop:

I was able to open a .doc file almost instantly with Mellel by this method.

I have the same problem with the "Paste simple text" shortcut even though there is no conflict with any Services. Numerous other Mellel shortcuts don't work for me either, and in such cases I use iKey. As has been mentioned often before on this forum, the ability to set one's own keyboard shortcuts ...

Thanks for the suggestion. However, double-clicking the .zip archive in FileMaker only unzips it and does not open the file itself. I thought I might be able to use the file path instead because FileMaker recognizes URLs, but it seems to recognize only Internet URLs.

FileMaker and Mellel

FileMaker databases allow one to access individual files via a "container." Unfortunately, because Mellel files are now bundles, they are not recognized by FileMaker. I know I could create PDF or RTF files of my Mellel documents and use these, but I don't really want to have to do this every time a ...

It was nice to see such a prompt response to the request for marker accessibility from the menu bar. One of the most annoying aspects of Mellel for me (or perhaps the only really annoying aspect) is the fact that the "Go to Page..." navigation button is not accessible from a menu and cannot therefor...

I have found that several keyboard shortcuts are no longer working in 2.1.2. For example, none of the keyboard shortcuts for note streams appear to work. (And, no, there aren't any conflicts with keyboard shortcuts in the Services menu.) This too is rather annoying to say the least.
