How to cross-reference bookmarked text?

While trying to cross-reference bookmarked text , I noticed that there is no such option directly available in Mellel. I resorted to pasting bookmarked text into the format area for cross references, but that is rather cumbersome. Is this presently the preferred method of doing this in Mellel? P.S. ...

Re: When to use Character Style Variations?

Maybe you later want to use small capitals instead of italics, if you go according my number one, you could make the change quickly and painless. Yes, I want to keep all options on the table and be able to change the formatting later, if necessary. I was thinking in the same direction as you, but w...

When to use Character Style Variations?

Sometimes I need to write commonly known book titles without referring to any specific edition. I want to write the title in italic . Example: Charles Dickens wrote Oliver Twist before he wrote Great Expectations . Now, I can think of at least three ways to italicize the title. 1. Use a Character St...

Re: Problems with autonumbering AND applying style to ONLY one section

Hello Harvey, I want to have the paragraphs in the body of the text to have continuous autonumbering, but NOT the autotitles, which I'm using as "chapter titles" 1. To auto number the paragraphs you use List . Select the paragraphs you want numbered, and make sure that there is only one Return after...

Re: How do I make Document Styles global?

I'm not sure if I understood your points, but try to click on the button below a hand sign in the palette. Thank you, legaltalks, for responding. In the meantime I think I have largely resolved the problem. The document was imported from another application and contained many different styles. I th...

Re: auto titles numbering

Congratulations! This time I can see screenshots no. 2 and 3. But unfortunately you took wrong screenshots. You selected "Title" instead of "Heading" and "Sub-heading" in the Title flows list. Anyway, based on the screenshots, you should be able to achieve what you want, if you do the following: 1. ...

Re: Swedish Localisation v. 4

Are there any plans to add Swedish again? If you choose "Support" from the Help menu, you can contact Mellel directly and ask them. Then post the answer here. I notice that Danish, Finnish, Norwegian - all with less number of native speakers - are supported The number of native speakers is not nece...

Re: Swedish Localisation v. 4

I am using Mellel v. 4 and it is in English despite my system language being Swedish. Is this an error or is it just not (yet) available? According to the Mellel Guide (p. 202 f.), there are 17 localizations currently available for Mellel's User Interface. Swedish is not among them: 1. Chinese (Sim...

Re: auto titles numbering

the screenshots are in my Dropbox. I'm sorry ClioBrNl, I can only see the first screenshot. Dropbox tells me that "Screen Shot 2017-11-22 at 14…" doesn't exist. You need to tell Dropbox to *share* those links, like you seem to have done with the first one, so that everyone can view them. Now obviou...

Re: auto titles numbering

I made some screenshots but I do not know how to upload them here. You can not upload screenshots here. Use one of the many free file sharing web services for this purpose. MediaFire, for example, gives you 10 GB free space. I use it when I share files with members of this forum. https://www.mediaf...

Re: auto titles numbering

Hello ClioBrNl, Your posts are not quite clear. In the first post it seems you want to have Acknowledgements, list of abbreviations, introduction, conclusion and appendices WITHOUT any numbers, but Mellel stubbornly adds numbers to them, although you don't want it. Is that correct? Then in another p...

Re: Auto-titles in text boxes

Actually a lot of features are lacking for text boxes: auto-titles, bookmarks, comments, references, cross-references, figures, tables,... That's a pity because (as mentioned previously), it makes text boxes almost useless for academic documents. I've never tried to put anything else than text insi...

How do I make Document Styles global?

I have a global Style Set with a paragraph style in it called "Body." Now I select some paragraphs in a document and use the Paragraph styles palette to assign the style to the selection. The style is ticked in the palette, as expected. So far, so good. If I then open the current Style Set (Styles >...
