Re: Comments in boxes?

Oh boy! I was just about deleting my post because I suddenly remembered that we have discussed this before. But you were faster! LOL.
Anyway, Merry Christmas and all the very best to you!

Re: Comments in boxes?

It's not possible.
I really need this feature
I don't know if it is of any help to you, but comments can be attached to text in Text boxes in Nisus Writer Pro.

Re: Note Symbol superscript issue

It seems I got carried away. The superscript box below the T as I described it in [4] is tied to the Character Style, so step [4] may be redundant. Sorry about that.

I have several Note Styles, and I must say, the procedure is rather complex and can be baffling sometimes.

Re: Note Symbol superscript issue

In "Note Style: Footnote" under "Note Symbol" there is a checkbox for selecting superscript or not. I have several problems here. First, when I check the superscript box or uncheck it, the "Save" button remains grey so I cannot change that style feature. [1] Then toggle something else in the pane, ...

Re: change the font of all text in a particular language

a better way to phrase the question would be by "script" and not by "language." Yes, that makes indeed all the difference! I thought you had already assigned language attributes to the text. I don't write in Greek or Right to Left Languages, so I'm not sure whether searching for scripts is possible...

Re: change the font of all text in a particular language

Hello Ben, Open the Find and Replace panel. Make sure the the Format indicators at the end of the Find and Replace fields are grayed out. 1. While in the Find field, select a language whose font you want to change from the Character Styles pane. Then select 'Anything' from the Find Insert popup menu...

Re: Unable to delete styles

I already wrote about this a while ago in the thread "How do I make Document Styles global?", albeit from a slightly different perspective. No matter what template I load, there are always styles associated with it that have the ◆ in front of the name You must be talking about your custom templates,...

Re: Switching to Greek and Hebrew

the Base is English, the Greek (Doulos SIL font) and Hebrew (Ezra SIL font) do not switch to those fonts. Yes, I can reproduce the problem. I'm using Mellel 4.0.2 and Sierra, i.e. macOS 10.12.3. The secondary font change actually does take place, but it's just not visibly reflected in the Character...

Re: How to cross-reference bookmarked text?

Maybe the workaround is to mark all the text as a special auto-title or as a special tag.
This gave me an idea. I created a special tag flow for this, and it works!

Thank you very much for your help.

Re: How to cross-reference bookmarked text?

Thank you ealvarez for your reply. Not sure that I understand well, as we can cross-reference bookmarks (p. 77 of the manual) But how do you let the bookmarked text appear in the cross reference? I want to display the actual text I marked as cross reference (like you can do in Nisus and MS Word.) In...

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...
