I was able to get it to run fine on both Everywhere and In Selection selected following your instructions.
Good to know then that it's just a local issue. Thank you Avner for your help.

Re: How to quickly assign Auto-titles to bold paragraphs?

If what you want to do is navigate public domain books from Gutenberg, Bartleby, and the like for reading purposes, their HTML (online) and EPUB (offline) versions have built-in navigational aids these days. I wouldn’t myself import a book into a word processor simply in order to navigate it more c...

Re: help with small problems

I did not find a ‘find&replace’ which permitted global replacement of ‘line-break’ with ¶ (return). Can't you insert "Line break" from the Insert menu > Breaks > Line break into the Find box and Return (also from the Insert menu) into the Replace box? Also a fair amount of Greek had been copied fro...

Changing the background color of citations

I find the purple background color of citations very distracting.
Is there any way to change the color to, let's say, light gray?

I wonder what other forum members think about this. Perhaps it's just a matter of habituation…

Re: How to create Find Action with Return (¶) character?

What exactly is not working for you? The Find Action can not replace returns with a space *if* the Find Action is applied to a text selection . If no text is selected (= Search in: Everywhere), it works as expected, i.e. the returns are replaced with a space. The details : 1. You have text like in ...

Re: How to quickly assign Auto-titles to bold paragraphs?

trying to solve this problem must begin before it is created In many cases the user has no control over where the creation process starts. Think of long *imported* documents you find on the web, or take Project Gutenberg as an example. You download a long 19th century novel with more than 100 chapt...

you can lighten your load by having your favorite automation tool assign a single trigger
Which automation tools do you have in mind? Do you mean something like Keyboard Maestro?

What automation tool works particularly well with Mellel?

Re: How to create Find Action with Return (¶) character?

Thanks Avner, but this doesn't work either. Perhaps you overlooked what I said about the * selection *. I need to restrict this to Search in Selection Anyway, a find action with "Search in Selection" and the above mentioned parameters doesn't work. However, you can create a find action with "Search ...

How to create Find Action with Return (¶) character?

Dear Avner et al. Is it possible to create a Find Action consisting of just one Return (¶) character?

Re: The new index feature in Mellel 4

Thank you Avner. Your answer is much appreciated.
Finally someone who can give objective information about Mellel and not immediately freak out when Nisus is mentioned.

Welcome to the Mellel team!

You're here to promote Nisus.
Not promoting anything, just interested in finding out how Mellel compares with other word processors. This is a legitimate and commendable aspiration.

The essence of rational discourse is to deal with the arguments provided; not to shoot the messenger.
