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 >...

Re: Auto-titles in text boxes

I'm so disappointed and stunned over this obviously missing feature. Before I read Fedtegrevinde's post, I was not aware that this problem exists. So, thank you Fedtegrevinde for bringing this up. I have not been able to figure out how to do this in Mellel. Therefore I would like to strongly suppor...

Re: Auto-titles in text boxes

To be sure I understand you correctly, you want to use text boxes as captions for floating (?) images, because Image Caption in the Auto-Title pane can be difficult or even impossible to place right under the image. Is that correct? Are you trying to do something like this? View screenshot. https://...

Re: Getting rid of residual citation markers

Here is something else you should try. Export the document as rtf and open it in another application. This will work as laundry and remove all traces of the inauspicious blue color. I just tried this in LibreOffice and Nisus Writer Pro. The blue color went away. All the formatting was retained, incl...

Many thanks for trying to reproduce this issue
Let's wait and see what Avner has to say. I haven't seen him here for a while, but I suppose he'll be back soon.

Re: Getting rid of residual citation markers

Hi Joseph, My previous suggestion was based on marker colors, but now, after I inserted real temporary citations from Bookends, I get the same result as you. Paste Character Attributes is indeed grayed out. "Browse All Versions" doesn't show up as an option for me under "Revert," so I wasn't able to...

Re: Getting rid of residual citation markers

I can't see any obvious way to remove these traces of the previous citations so that I can start over. Any advice on this topic would be much appreciated. Did you try to revert to an older version via File > Revert To > Browse All Versions…? You could also just select the highlighted text and paste...

Re: Shortcut for Small Caps

For Antidote, I use Mellel and I don't want to use Nisus (it isn't properly update[d], and the user interface is a shame for retina screens). Thanks Gustave, I didn't know that. I don't have Retina. [the] More we request Antidote integration, [the] more the developers of Mellel would make it a real...

Re: Shortcut for Small Caps

Is there a shortcut for Small Caps in Mellel 4 ? I try to create one in the macOS system but it doesn't work (it need to be on a Menu on Mellel). It seems Mellel's idea is to create a character style for this purpose rather than give you a Format menu, from where you can directly apply attributes t...

any character attributes are applied to the entire search expression, and you cannot apply them to just one element.
Yes, that's what I noticed too. Thanks for the confirmation.

Re: TOC doesn't appear in the PDF

The first time I tried, I only used the print dialog from the File menu > Print > Save as PDF. The result is still no TOC. I somehow overlooked the Export command from the File menu, so I tried that now, and it works. Thanks Peter for drawing my attention to this Export command. There used to be iss...

TOC doesn't appear in the PDF

When I export a Mellel 4 document with a Table of Contents as PDF, the TOC doesn't appear in the PDF. Is this a known issue? I'm on Sierra 10.12.3.

How to search for English and Italian text?

Is it possible to build a search criteria for all text having the language attributes "English" and "Italian" and mark (= replace) them with blue text color? I mean *one* search, not two searches where I would first search for text in English, replace it with blue color, and then search for all Ital...

Re: Custom numbering unit in Auto-Title, etc.

Regarding the notes […] this isn't the expected behavior. I'm having the same issue as legaltalks, but it took me some time to figure out what he meant. So for clarification, I'm going to rephrase his comment. • If you have already assigned an Auto-title to a paragraph, there is no way to create a ...
