Re: Horizontal Line at Bottom of Header?

I forgot to mention that I insert that line into Typinator. From then on, I only need to type the abbreviation "li" (for 'line'), and I have the full line instantly in the header.

Re: Horizontal Line at Bottom of Header?

I type Shift + "Low Line" repeatedly until it looks like a long, horizontal line. The "Low Line" is the third key from right in the first row (that's the row where the numbers are) on the ABC-Extended keyboard.

How to import headings as Auto-titles?

When I import documents with headings created in Nisus Writer Pro or MS Word, the headings either appear as obscurely renamed bookmarks in Mellel or they just remain as headings; they never appear in the Outline pane unter Structure. Is there a way to somehow make them appear as Auto-titles in the O...

Clickable TOC

Click on the page numbers in the TOC and you will be taken to the corresponding location in the document. Most good word processors work that way. It seems Mellel can't do this. Am I right? If yes, I would like to send this as a feature request. Or should feature requests been sent directly to the M...

Re: Title

Select the text and choose "Underline and Overline" from the Line drop-down menu in the Attributes pane.

Re: how to find bold text

The only shortcut I could find is located in the Edit>Find submenu. Thanks for your reply, miles11, but I'm not sure you understood the question. Find Actions (= saved searches) are accessed through FindSets in the edit menu. We can, of course, assign a keyboard shortcut to the menu command FindSet...

Thank you for the feedback.

Can't copy and paste into other applications. Is this normal

I can't copy text in Mellel and paste into other applications. I can only copy and paste or drag text between Mellel documents. I also can't drag text from Mellel to the Finder to create text clips. The only way to get text from Mellel into other applications is Export from the File menu. Is this no...

Re: how to find bold text

Is there a simple way to find bold text using the find function? I see none of the old hands here has answered your question, so I'll have a shot at it. I haven't found anything faster than creating a Find Action. 1) Search for "Anything" with the attribute 'Face Bold' and Replace it with 'Found Ex...

Re: Word count in bottom bar

Scrivener […] Even with no text in the main doc view it feels slow. I can't imagine what it would feel like with 100K or 200k words. I just crammed Scrivener full with long text documents that I downloaded from Gutenberg (long novels), over one million words. Scrolling was no problem; it was as sna...

Re: Word count in bottom bar

OK, I see the screenshots were not included in my previous post. What a bummer.

Is there any way to send screenshots in this forum? — What's the "Img" button for anyway, if it can't be used???

Re: Word count in bottom bar

Scrivener, Pages, Word... none of them have come as close to being my perfect word processor as Mellel Why don't you mention Nisus Writer Pro? It's usually considered the best. But the statistics in a separate pane, and only a separate pane, is a deal breaker for me. […] I'm very word count goal- o...

How about locking the file in Finder? Choose 'Get Info' and then click the appropriate check box.
